In a couple of weeks, gamers can be able to play their favorite PS3 games with better audio quality as Logitech announced that its Logitech Harmony Adapter for PS3 will be made available around north America in a couple of weeks. Europe will see a July launch, while Australia will get it any day.
Logitech has a blog post up that offers a full FAQ on the $59.99 adapter, but the long and short of it is the accessory simply converts your Harmony’s IR commands to Bluetooth signals. For better or worse, unlike some PS3 IR dongles already on the market, the adapter requires an AC adapter.
But Logitech explains that it not only didn’t want the adapter to use up one of “your valuable USB ports,” and without an external power source, you wouldn’t be able to power on your PS3 using the adapter because the PS3’s USB ports are dead when the unit is powered off.
