MadCatz brings portable keyboard with Thumbpad

via PS3 Fanboy by Andrew Yoon on 1/19/08

We have to admit that this peripheral by MadCatz looks like a winner. It reminds us a lot of Xbox 360’s chatpad — this device plugs into the PS3 controller and allows you to type at a whim. Supposedly, the device was released all the way back in May, but it seemingly has fallen out of our grasp.

This seems rather ingenious, but user reviews have been negative for one key reason — apparently, it doesn’t work with PS2 games. Final Fantasy XI fans were quite disappointed. But, those of you that enjoy using the web browser and the XMB messaging system may find this $30 peripheral a neat addition to your gadgets collection. See a video, after the cut.
