There is always a big debate going on as to whether the Xbox or the Playstation 3 is the better console to play First-Person Shooter (FPS) games on. Personally, I am an Xbox fan but some of my friends have Playstations so I have played on both and cannot decide which is better. One thing is for sure, the Call of Duty games are a must have.

I have owned 2 sets of Turtle Beach headsets with my Xbox 360, both of these were the standard Turtle Beach X360 Earforce XLC. These basic headsets from Turtle Beach are head and shoulders above the default ones which are supplied by Microsoft with the console. There are various others available and Turtle Beach may have just taking wireless gaming headsets to a new level with their Xbox specific Turtle Beach XP500 headset.
Previously, Turtle Beach had provided a PS3 version of the headphones called the PX5 which has had good reviews from within gaming industry. The Turtle Beach XP500 Wireless Headset is essentially the PX5 renamed with a similar design and with Dolby virtual 7.1 compatible. The headset has been Xbox pimped out with a green trim and rechargeable Bluetooth Chat Adapter. This adapter plugs directly into the Xbox controller to allow chatting functions from the wireless headset.
Priced at $260 (and under) and available this fall it’s difficult to advertise this headset as a must have for gamers due to the price being similar to a new Xbox console. With cheaper headsets available with slightly less functionality I don’t think I will be buying one, however for the big gamers out there who must have the latest gaming gadgets then this is definitely something you will want. Also with the arrival of Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 2 and other great games it could be an expensive few months for the gaming community.
Sony is planning to take online gaming on the PS3 to a new level in the last week of October as the company has announced the arrival of its new wireless headset for the PS3 which would make online communication for the gamers very easry and convenient. This sleek headset is expected to last for a full 8 hours when completely charged and is great to look at as well. It is accompanies by a stylish stand that would be used to place the headset on.
Sony would be introducing it in Japan at nearly 5000 Yens but probably the wireless headset is actually worth it especially for the dedicated gamer.
