Gametech Bear to Release Accessory That Connects PSPgo to PS3 Controller

One of the most useful PSPgo feature is arguably the ability to play PSP games with a PlayStation 3 controller. Accessory manufacturer Gametech Bear has gone one step further with a new useful accessory which sees Sony’s PSPgo connect to a PlayStation 3 controller.

The accessory maker is taking pre-orders for a PSPgo controller holder that physically links a PSPgo to a DualShock 3 controller. You’ll still have to utilize Bluetooth for a connection to transfer button presses to the game. The controller holder essentially holds both devices in place. Gametech will be using an unused patent application filed by Sony which connects a regular PSP to a PS3 controller.

Gametech will be selling the controller holder in Japan by the end of this year for 2,980 yen ($36).
