Thanks, just what I needed (Wanted to be able to charge both pads whilst watching a blu ray). Have some heat!

You realize this is just a regular USB cable?
Any USB-cable of the same type will work.

I know, but for anyone wanting the official PS3 brand from a reputable dealer then this is ideal. At £2.86, you can't complain too much!

Yes everyone realises thank you.

This cable is 2.8M, so a cracking price.

Plenty of Fleabay sellers with 5m cables for less than this inc P&P.

no not 'Officially branded' but jeez it's just a USB cable....

It's not just any usb cable, this is an official PS3 usb cable.
You have total peace of mind that your controller is being charged up officially.
That's priceless.

It's the M&S of USB cables. Surely that's worth something, huh?

Plus, you can sit and stare at the box and have it remind you of the days the PSN went down...

It's a standard USB cable.

I charge my pads from my TV's USB port so they get charged when the girlfriend watches TV. Any USB cable will work their is zero special about these.

Yeah, Sony are awesome at piece of mind.
Oh, right, yeah, whoops.

I buy 3m ones from Ebay at half this price.

I do notice that the charge doesn't last as long as the official USB lead, but still worth it.

I do relise this but I don't have another USB cable, think this is a good price especially as I don't like to use ebay/unknown internet retailers! My very simple matix for HUKD below:

decent brand - check
decent specs - check
decent discount - check
value for money - check
heat added - check

Don't forget 5% topcashback!

Just make sure not to send data over them.. I once tried, and found a queue of hackers with laptops waiting at my front door.

Can every Sony/PS3 deal expect these kind of comments from now on? Starting to bore me now...
Preferred the unbranded Onkyo comments in every A/V deal but that seems to have stopped now.

I was going to type a witty sarcastic reply but then I realised just how tragic it is that there are so many brainwashed people in the world.

How can that be related to the cable? Must be something to do with the battery inside the controller surely.

If I buy this USB fiddlly wire will it steal my personal data, clone my idenity and take over the world??

I'll stick with my 99p cables from ebay. Cold

Whooooosh.....

Based on that last post you don't have much of an identity to steal.

Sony have assured me in an e-mail that the on-line services will be available again soon...I received that e-mail on Sunday...and who knows if it was from Sony or not?
Edited by: "championmongo1" 4th May 2011

i would rather buy 1 and save £ from ebay, but voted hot because its the cheapest official cable

Heat added. Unbrand USB cables can be hit or miss in terms of quality. This is good price for a 2.8m quality USB cable.

You mean that e-mail that Sony sent out telling PSN users that the service was down due to hacking and that they should keep an eye on their credit card statements for unauthorised transactions that was completely pointless because it came a week after it hit the headlines so everyone already knew about it?

For that we should all get free USB cables!

Didn't realise there was an offiicial one. The best thing about this is its length - 2.8m should allow you to play wired while it's charging. I've always used a spare for charging my controller and it doesn't reach the sofa.

Yeah that pointless e-mail, thankfully I've never put my credit card details in...feel for those who have.

Brilliant, never thought about this, I tried charging my controllers by the mains with a USB plug but it doesn't work, but have plugged it into my TVs USB port and it works, fantastic

Not a bad price from a decent retailer, but people should definitely know that this cable doesn't do anything that any other mini usb cable doesn't use. A lot of android phones use the same cable, my external hard drive uses the same cable. As long as you get it (so not a dodgy seller that doesn't send your item) any mini usb cable will do the job whether it's from ebay or what else.

Still, voting hot purely because it's from a decent retailer and this is best price you'll get outside of dodgy inc. or ebay.

3m cable can be had for £1.63 del on the bay but i suppose this is a good price for a playstation branded product.

True you can use any old cable but the controller is actually 3.7V - which I why I think there is the bulgy bit on the wire - a mini transformer to step down the voltage from 5.0V to 3.7V.

They just took the term "Play and Charge" from Microsoft's money-grabbing unnecessary proprietary cables because it seems to make idiots think it's better.

False. That's used to prevent interference, a lot of cables have that. Forgot the exact name. If you look at the box, even Sony are saying it's just a USB cable while also mentioning the Play and Charge feature just in case you don't know you can play and charge with any USB cable.

Yes make sure you get Sony Electric so you offically can charge officially with official Electric.

I like the idea of my controller being charged up officially. Hot from me.
