With E3 coming up this week, it's obvious that gaming gear is going to be in the spotlight here soon. But we can't say we expected Sony to be one of the companies introducing new gaming headsets. Nevertheless, the Pulse Wireless Stereo Headset (Elite Edition) has been revealed, with a product name that's almost as long as the time you'll have to wait to pick one up.

Every English student knows that even the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry, a fact of life even Razer has to contend with. To wit, the gaming peripheral maker had previously promised to have its Tiamat headphones available for purchase by around the end of January 2012, but here we are on the last day of the month and the headset is nowhere in sight. So what gives? Razer addressed the need for a second delay in an open later to its fans. Dear Community, In December we said, 'the Razer Tiamat will be available around the end of January 2012.' Well, the end of January has arrived and the cold, hard truth is that it is not ready, and our estimations were off. This is the last thing... Read more...
