Snakebyte PlayStation 3 remote touts IR and Bluetooth, $50 price tag
So, here’s the dilemma — do you buy a lovely Bluetooth remote to control your PS3, or spring for a Bluetooth-to-IR adapter in order to better integrate your console into your overall home theater? How’s about neither? Snakebyte’s Premium Bluetooth Remote has just been unleashed here at CES, offering both Bluetooth and Infrared support, enabling it to dictate your PS3 as well as five other IR components. You’ll also get a backlit display, ingrained motion sensor, a built-in Li-ion battery and support for updatable firmware. We dropped by the company’s booth here in Vegas, but the only model on-hand was a non-functional mockup — too bad, but the real-deal is expected to ship this April for $49.99.
