Aww yeah, Sony is finally getting down with the fact that they sell a portable video game device, and not an iPod. Proof? Well, they are about to drop black earbuds and a black remote control on the PSP accessory scene. If you remember, we complained about the white accessories when we told you about all the PSP’s negatives. Also, they will soon be releasing an external battery charger. Obviously, it isn’t practical to remove the PSP battery whenever you want to recharge it, but it looks like a nice place to keep a spare juiced. Look for both items soon.

Third party accessories for any product are mostly, by default, pretty bad in my opinion. Usually it feels like companies are trying to piggyback on the success of the popularity of the products that manufacturers work hard to come up with and market. That being said, Nyko has recently brought the iTop to the table. The draw here is that you can relocate the iPod’s functions to the top of the unit so that you don’t need to take it out of your pocket to access the click wheel. How does it work? Check out the full review after the jump.
As you can see, this watch only has a minute hand. Upon closer glance, you will also see that the numbers aren’t in the correct place. Truth be told, I think this Gerald Charles A-Evolution watch rocks. Basically there is a windows at the top in which the number of the hour appears, while the minute hand rotates as normal. So the time on the watch at the left is about 1:46. Definitely a cool conversation piece - at least for those that like to stare at your wrist.

Who says the Xbox is a computer in a box disguised at a video game system? Apparently, Brando’s shop does. So go ahead, and buy this: unplug the keyboard in front of you, unplug your mouse, plug this adapter in, plug your keyboard, then plug in your mouse. Now get to fragging.
I can tell you that portable usb drives can be quite convenient. They fit right in your pocket and hold a decent amout of storage space. I can also tell you that growing up Swiss Army knives were very handy to have around. Need a toothpick, scissors, nail clipper, corkscrew? I’d whip out my SAK and go to town. For $69.99 , not only is this defenitly a cool way to display your drive in public, it has a built in ballpoint pen and LED light. Disguised as a knife, you’re bound to see longer lines at airports.

If you bought a 1GB drive in the past few months, you’re kicking yourself in the pants right about now. Sandisk now offers their smallest flash drive in 2GB format for $199.99. Of course, this item is currently backordered on their site, and probably will remain that way for some time. This version of the Micro complies with their MP3 companion (shown above) that allows you to listen to your mp3’s that you’ve dragged and dropped from your computer. Very cool.

You probably know how much we rave about Vaja leather cases. We’ve covered their Rio cases as well as their well as their Treo 650 cases. We even interviewed them about their high end products. As portable gear becomes part of the daily lives of more and more people, Vaja is staying ahead of the game with a high-quality iPod shuffle case. If that isn’t enough (these things never are), they have also developed a case to hold your SD/MMC cards. Looking for the ultimate cash-in, they plan to release leather PSP cases, as well as a model for the newer Blackberry.

Saitek brought a slew of new PC video game controllers with them to E3, and Playfeed has a rundown of all three. Basically, they give you the standard, the rumble, and the wireless models - all are very high quality from their appearances. Saitek has decided to focus all of their controllers on first person shooters, which becomes apparent when you see that all three controllers have an FPS button.
Okay, I realized that purchasing an iPod really is an investment for most. Having it get destroyed because you were careless enough to drop it by accident is not a nice feeling after dropping a few hundred bucks on the MP3 player. Seriously though, why would you pay up to six times the cost of an iPod for a case? Noreve is trying to convince iPod owners to do. Their iPod Love case is an extremely limited edition, as only 20 will be manufactured. It is a leather case with a velvet interior, adorned with a white gold heart which is encrusted with 44 WSI quality diamonds. It is manufactured upon order (hence, the 25 day wait), making you feel that much more special, and signed and numbered by S. Schaming - Saint-Tropez Schaming Jewlery - Place de Lices - Saint-Tropez. If you really want one, they are available in black, white, gray, pink, beige, baby blue, ocean blue, or red. Oh, and they are kind enough to remind you that although the price is extravagant, the iPod is not included. I expect Paris Hilton to buy all 20, while I stick with the cheaper cases.

Each Slappa Shockshell case is given a three-foot drop test, which is good because this is approximately the height from which I drop mine every day. They come in a variety of colors and textures that are pretty unique, albeit unattractive, such as the blueberry swirl in the image. No blandness detected here. They run you about $30 bucks a pop.
