Diving in on the PS4, peripheral maker Hyper X has announced a new official headset, complete with PlayStation colors and branding.
I think this might be a first for Hyper X. A division of Kingston, who you probably know from their PC accessories and peripherals, Hyper X has been around for a while now. Definitely a first for their efforts on the PS4, I don’t think they’ve made anything for a console that’s been specifically branded to that platform.
That of course, changes with this new headset. The HyperX Cloud for PS4 bears both the PlayStation 4 logo and a slick blue and black color scheme. It also sounds like it’s right in line with the usual stuff that the company puts out, which is to say that it should be pretty high quality.
