We recieved a tip from EricDJ stating some new information about the Sony Playstation 3 Logitech Harmony Adapter, including pricing, SKU, and street date. This is information that I don’t believe is anywhere else, and through a simple Google search you can see that it is indeed legit. Best Buy actually had it listed but was removed, taken down, and is now cached. $59.99 isn’t a bad price point, but they need to bundle it with a remote to further entice users who may not even have one at all. Expect the Harmony Adapter to be available in several weeks on May 31st, at least in the USA. Best Buy had this additional picture (above) that I haven’t seen anywhere else.
Street date: 05.31.09
There was also some specs listed in the product description.

Always-on AC power
So the adapter is always ready for input.
The mention of AC power is kinda geeky. I guess that would help anyone out who thought this thing was battery run, or something.
