'Metal Gear Solid 4' gets its own headset

Bluetooth device matches the game's military motif.

The old formula, as was evidenced once again by Tranformers mania last year, is clear: Hype the title, leak word of related merchandise, and cash in just before the release (and before people come to their senses). As gamers have been losing sleep in anticipation of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, a "rumor" of a branded headset mysteriously began floating around the blog circuit. Then, just as miraculously, it turns out to be real and destined for sales that will coincide with the game's June launch.

The Bluetooth headset is not surprisingly done in a military motif with matching case and can be used with mobile phones as well as any PlayStation 3 title. It has 8 hours of talk time and 160 on standby, which should be just enough for the true aficionado, according to Mobile Magazine. And if you're really hard-core, maybe you can use one in each ear .
