Thanks alot sony, it would cost what, 3 dollars to integrate an ir recvr in the original design???
Sorry for the rant.. really looking forward to this thing.
n.b. sony I hate you
LOL. Sorry man, but I found that hilarious. I did get a $4.99 clearenced Mad Dog PS2 remote that didn't work very well with my 720. I then got the Nyko on sale and haven't looked back.
Down the road, I may get this IR2BT... but I think it's more likely that I wait for a future SKU with built in IR (just like happened with the PS2). And hopefully it will have all the card readers as well as a silver chassis with an included silver Dualshock 3.
I am a bit surprised, we never saw an official Sony accessory for the old, but maybe we will by the time there is a new SKU.
