Official PS3 Bluetooth Headset to be bundled with SOCOM Confrontation

EDIT: According to Abigale, the official PS3 mic is only rumor and speculation right now. Which means that picture is also a fake:

Hey, folks-
I have to step in here and let you know this was not an official release of information from us. The official word I got from those above me is: "To date no announcement has been made for a new PS3 headset or PSP GPS, any information you have received is speculation and rumor. And SCEA has yet to set a launch date, but will do so in the near future."
That's all I can say on the matter right now and I can answer no other questions here or in IM. Thanks for your understanding.

According to a user on neogaf, who is getting this from someone at "PS3forums", the official PS3 headset is hitting in July or August, and you will be able to buy it separately or in a bundle with SOCOM Confrontation:

Description
Provides High-fidelity audio input to PS3
Supports “voice command” in certain PS3 games
Easy pairing through USB connection with PS3
Comes with docking station for easy charging
Compatible with cellphones

Target
Consumers who want to communicate while in-game

Price
Standalone – $49.99 MSRP; SOCOM: Confrontation bundle - $59.99 MSRP

Launch
July/August


GREAT stuff! I've been waiting for Sony to finally do this. Doesn't seem like voice chat is as prevalent on PS3 as they would have hoped, and I know an official headset is going to help change that.

Of course they will deny the rumor. That is until they confirm it in a few weeks.
