Even though the Siberia RAW Prism is a completely new product, SteelSeries stuck with their standard look when it came to its packaging. On the front, you have a photo of the headset taking up nearly the entire cover. They did still slip in the model up in the top left and bottom right corners though. Up in the top right corner they made it easy to see that the Siberia RAW Prism connects only through USB. For some people this might be all of the information they need, but for everyone else SteelSeries breaks down the headsets key features on the back. Here they also have a few screenshots of the included software and another photo of the headset as well. The box overall is completely different from the Siberia Elite Prism that I just reviewed, for the RAW there isn’t a box within a box and the box is extremely thin compared to the heavy duty box of their flagship model. This is similar to what I saw in the past with the Siberia V2’s though, so no big surprises.

Inside our white headset came sitting inside of a formed plastic tray that keeps it from banging around. They used a few twist ties to keep it secured as well. Beyond the headset there really isn’t too much inside. You get a small user guide to get you started and a small warning paper as well warning you to be careful to not damage your ears.

Does the Siberia RAW Prism work on the PS3? It says it has compatibility on Windows, Mac OS X and on PlayStation. But all I've seen is the mention of the PS4, not the PS3.

Have you ever tested it on the PS3? Will it output the audio of the game on the headphones?

I will be honest even though I have a PS3 I never use a headset with it. I haven't tested on the Siberia Elite Prism. The USB sound card hasn't changed from before so I would assume the answer would be the same as in this post.

I did send over a message to SteelSeries to find out for sure. I will post up once I get an official answer for you Chad.

Don't you mean the "Siberia RAW Prism"? Or is that not possible at all on the PS3, because it doesn't provide the 3.5 cable. I can see that the Elite Prism can work from that FAQ link.

But I meant the "Siberia RAW Prism". If you plug the USB cable of the Siberia RAW Prism on the PlayStation 3. Will it function? As in game sound being output on the headphones instead of the TV.

Yeah sorry about that got mixed up with the two posts. I did ask SteelSeries about the correct headset though. I have a feeling that it won't work for in game audio because it doesn't have the removable USB sound card like the Elite. Will update tomorrow with what they say though
