Gametech Bear Has An Accessory That Tethers A PS3 Controller To A PSPgo

imageThe most useful PSPgo feature is, perhaps, the ability to play PSP games with a PS3 controller. It works wonders when playing a PSP game on a TV, but let’s imagine for a moment you don’t have a TV nearby (Acela train to Boston?) and still want to use a Dualshock 3 to play Peace Walker. Gametech’s Bear has a solution for you.


The accessory maker is taking pre-orders for a PSPgo controller holder that physically links a PSPgo to a Dualshock 3. You still have to use a Bluetooth connection to transfer button presses to the game. The controller holder just holds both devices in place. Gametech’s accessory is reminiscent of a patent application filed by Sony Computer Entertainment that actually connects a regular PSP to a PS3 controller that has so far been unused.


Gametech plans to sell the controller holder in Japan by the end of this year for 2,980 yen ($36).

    Cool, except you still can’t play KH on it. Zing!

  • Saying it now, you still need a PS3 to link the DS3 to the Go. Hasn’t seen anything that automatically syncs the dualshock with it yet, and this one doesn’t show any obvious methods of doing so either. So PS3 as hidden cost.
