Sony gets its own gamepad keyboard, care of MadCatz

First Microsoft unveils its gamepad-keyboard peripheral, then Nintendo is rumored to have interest in its own console keyboard. Now Sony, whose PlayStation 3 already allows for USB and Bluetooth keyboards, will have its own mini-keyboard attachable to the Sixaxis controller.

MadCatz's wireless thumbpad for PS3 is available to order at their website. The product page lauds its ergonomic design, but we question the pad's position on the top of the controller. Of course, we can't pass judgment based on display alone, but for $30 we'll stick to having a full-sized keyboard resting on our laps.
