Been down to Game, HMV, or wherever else it is that you kids buy video games from these days and picked up your copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops? If so, say goodbye to social interaction for the next month or so.

Unless of course, you count the "banter" over the Wi-Fi airwaves with your comrades and enemies as social interaction.

And if that's the case then you're going to need a decent Bluetooth headset - so lucky for you, Sony has just announced a new version of the official one.

The high-quality Bluetooth headset has a dual-microphone design, an in-game headset status indicator, built-in noise cancellation, a mute button and automatic pairing via a USB cable with the PS3.

The new headset is 30 per cent smaller than the old model and looks a bit swankier too with a high-gloss finish and a curvier appearance.

In the box you'll also find a charging cradle that also acts as a desktop microphone, should you require it to.

The new Bluetooth headset for Sony’s PS3 will launch this month in the States and will cost $49.99.

There's no UK release news as of yet, but we'll bring you an update as soon as we can.
