Pretty much any Bluetooth headset will work with PS3, yeah, but some are heads-and-tails above others (quality wise, I mean). The Sony ones are excellent, though this one actually looks pretty neat, too, and has the benefit of also being able to work with another console (most likely with a dongle for the 360).

it's only $10 more than the other wireless headset. looks really cool and sleek too. If i didn't have a TB i'd be all over that shit.

Actually, the Xbox 360 can't use Bluetooth, the headset is just equipped with a switch to toggle between connecting to the 360 and using Bluetooth. There's an LED color change to let you know what mode you're on, too! Check out Major Nelson's quick video with the new wireless headset if you haven't already.

My old 360 wireless headset won't hold a charge (and the little foam speaker protector is broken, but that's just a cosmetic thing), so I'm trying hard to justify getting this. Buying a regular headset off Amazon is so much cheaper, though, I might wait until I can find it for a reduced price before making a purchase.
