HELP: PC Headset on PS3, Monitor Setup Tags: Console Gaming Playstation Monitors Headsets Video Games Product Last response: December 25, 2010 5:13 AM in Video Games Share insomnia9669 December 18, 2010 8:48:47 PM I recently got a PS3 and am wondering if this is possible. I play on my computer monitor through HDMI, there are no component cables. I have a SteelSeries Siberia Headset that uses 3.5mm jacks (1 for the mic, 1 for the headset). Is it possible to plug these into my PS3 somehow with an adapter like.. 3.5mm to USB? and get ingame sounds and be able to communicate? Thanks in advance, I would really appreciate a solution to this.
