It seems like Sony has learned something from Microsoft and Apple about how to get all of your Sony electronics working together better.
those are really interesting features, i always wondered what remote play was,it only does everything.:)
it only does features i never heard of ps3 ftw
Instead of limiting it to SONY VAIO computers, they should further expand it so gamers using other devices such as Toshiba, Acer, HP, Dell etc could also benefit from this. Make PSN accessible like facebook, twitter! That'd be huge! An avalanche of AAA exclusives aanndd more accessibility. PS3 really does everything!!
http://www.haxnetwork.net/2... It's not official bet it's still good.
too bad VAIO laptops are so overpriced.
They are great laptops though. Good build quality on the two I have so far.
r the closest thing to Macs, really.
to assault an old lady.
Yeah, all they have to do is get MS's permission/pay to make it a Windows app... @OpenGL: What else is it going to run on? The can get away with doing it Vaio because its their hardware, but otherwise how else do you explain why they haven't just generally released it?
No they don't.
We're not talking about consoles here, nothing is stopping Sony from releasing anything for Windows. Microsoft does not control software development or charge a fee to develop for Windows. At the same time they are not required to support or market any piece of software not released by Microsoft or an affiliated company. The reason Sony hasn't released anything is due to the fact that they'd rather force you into paying for one of their overpriced PCs to get this feature instead of giving it to everyone.
So if I write a "hello, world" program, I have to get MS's permission or pay them to let people use it? The reason it's not on other devices is because it's a selling point for Sony Vaio laptops. Edit: It seems OpenGL already covered the bases.
Okay, you have a point OpenGL, just hard to imagine that Sony would be as asinine to pull such a limited stunt for their overpriced laptops. But on the other hand still can't MS not having an issue with a competitor putting out an app for a rival product for general use. Though of course, if it is just a software app, its now a hacker target that at the very least could be made into a general use app.
"But on the other hand still can't MS not having an issue with a competitor putting out an app for a rival product for general use. " Steam says hi. Windows is an incredibly open platform. You can release anything on it (just look at all those date rape sims).
"Okay, you have a point OpenGL, just hard to imagine that Sony would be as asinine to pull such a limited stunt for their overpriced laptops" This is the same company that has like five links to the playstation store on the xmb, charges the same amount for digital games as games in stores, and removes system features right? They always do thing's that aren't exactly consumer friendly. Their not manipulative and overbearing like some companies, and they are just protecting their business interests but still. Sony is all about selling sony products.
Microsoft do charge to develop on Windows. You need digital signatures. This can be optional on their 32-bit Windows systems, but on 64-bit it is mandatory. If there is no digital signature on Vista-64 and 7-64 then the program will be blocked, unless you go into Test mode.... which 99% of Windows 64-bit users have no idea exists.
@RedDragan: this is factually false. The only point where you need to sign a program for Windows is when you want to access kernel space interfaces. Therefor you need to sign DRIVERS, but not regular user software. For i.e. a Paint clone you would NOT need you own signed driver as you can easily use the windows api in place, for free. The only reason you see so many programs signed is the god darned DRM. DRM needs low level drivers to work at all, hence you need a signed driver for it.
Do you mean that a company that produces and sells electronic products is only interested in selling said products?!? THOSE EVIL MEN! How dare they not dedicate them selves to making things the way I want them.
of intelligence in this particular thread is ASTOUNDING.
and then ask to pay then for a pc free of virus. i have been in peace ever since the ps3 and iphone and just use my pc sometimes, pc are stressful f%&#up machines speciali the windows pc are so f"%&up
lol jk... but seriously, there is some proper dumb people.. no offence, but before you start saying "zomg you need to pay to make windows applications" or "zomg you do need to pay coz all software needs signatures which you have to pay for"... no just.. no! windows wise, as far as i know, MS only makes money on every windows disc sold, MSDN (and other similar ones), digital signing of a software (as pointed out earlier, there is only a handful of software that really need such a signature) and that's pretty much it (obviously there is loads of other places of income for the company, but these are the only ones i know of that come from windows itself).. windows doesn't have a freaaking app store (altho i heard there was one coming, which is pretty messed up.. release a product.. how do we improve it? just add a appstore)
Microsoft and Sony are not competitors in the PC market, so why would Microsoft give two shits if Sony wanted to do this?
Hmm suddenly I desire a vaio laptop.. Damn need more money!
the more stuff the better[even tho i don't understand most of it] LoL
This sucks because sony laptops are puss compared to mac pros and asus and alien wear stuff. I just got the quad i7 8 gigs of ram asus and the 3d lcd one also, im having a blast working out side and shooting people int the face, just need to watch the clouds lol. The viao really do need some help. They are not specs right with regards to the price and their designs are good enough to warrant the extra money. Yet with asus i'll buy any thing they make lol. This is another sign that they think like apple yet with out figuring out how to make the deal attractive.
only works with VAIO's. well thats dumb
I think it works with some sort of Sony phone too, at least they were talking about it a while back.
Sony Ericsson Aino. Strange thing is, I have the even better phone.... Satio. And it doesn't do this. WTF is the deal with that?!
you can do the same thing with the psp 2.
really? since when? how much does the psp2 cost where u live?
I'm not sure if he means 'psp2' or psp 'too' lol.
Some hackers already found a way to get it working on other laptops. The thing is it needs a special driver for the WiFi adapter. Some other laptops that use the same one can be used for it. However, at the moment they still working on it to get it working with other stuff.
No not dumb, this is a feature that they are going to try and use to push sales of the vaio line of laptops.. It's smart buisness because if you want the function you have to buy a vaio.. I actually want a vaio now.. I need a laptop for school and this really helps me narrow down my decision.. I just hope the vaio laptops are good.. Anyone out there help me out?
I have a Vaio, and it was one of the best purchases ever made. It's efficent for school as well as social networking, and shiny! I know I want to try this with my PS3 now, but just know that it is a good buy, and durable and actually lightweight for the size. I say go for it.
Cool to see Sony integrating their hardware, now if only they worked on integrating their software similar to how Apple has done it.
Oh damn guess I should have got a Vaio, not a macbook pro. Oh well my MBP is sick, I love it.
Yes they need to make this work with all Bluetooth Computers, It might just be for Sony PCs for now but it needs to expand to all devices, Hell make it so you can use your phone as a text chat pad. Small things like that are very cool.
Im bout to play some English pool in my Home space.
Just installed it. Hot damn this is slick.
Remote play actually works with more Vaio PCs than is listed. I just downloaded it to one I bought in Dec of last year and it works great. Of course I cant use the remote keyboard option due to my Vaio not having bluetooth. Anyway this could turn out to be a very handy feature.
:) Currently using the keyboard feature on my VAIO :D. Very useful. However, expanding it to more devices would be even more useful.
So you can use the keyboard on your computer as a substitute on the PS3 to surf the web? Now that's an interesting idea, but is it really a worthwhile feature? Maybe using it for texting or what have you, but that's what the USB keyboards are for.
Yeh, but now for people like me..who don't have USB keyboards. I can just use my laptop :). So now I don't have to get a bluetooth or USB keyboard anymore :D.
I admit, I have something of a Sony thing going on with a TV, amp, dvd player, PS3, camera, PC speakers and even alarm clock. However, much as I like Vaio designs, they are still stuck on the Windows OS which I just cannot go back to after my time with a mac. Same for my iPhone, I umped from a very good K750i which lasted 5 years but I can't see me going back. Good features though, I just hope they are easy to get working for the laymen out there. An iPhone app would be nice though but is unlikely I will admit.
This is one of the many reasons i love PS3, They are always pushing their consoles to the limits, while MS and 360 make...Skittles...
but ps3 can't even multi task like Xbox 360 if the ps3 could multi task, then we would have seen Cross Game chat ages ago. and Custom music.
PS3 can easily multitask, its just Sony feels that they shouldn't be in a rush to upgrade PSN, for free. If PSN was mandatory pay to play, then Sony would of had Cross game chat.
Custom soundtracks, Cross game chat, Voice messaging, Record ingame pic/movie for HDD or uploading to youtube software in XMB, Plug / play my 10 dollar pc webcam on ps3! Dont start that, Dont start that Custom soundtracks is inside the PS3. Its up to devs thing! WHY??? Dont start that CGC is lame thing! Because it dosent! Dont start that voice messaging is allready on PS3 thing! Where is it? Dont start that this game / that game uses thing! Its up to devs thing again! We needed for all games! Dont start that "you can use any webcam as a microphone" thing! WTF??? Its a webcam not a mic!
1. It's up to the devs because it affects memory usage and, this way, devs have full control over it rather than it being forced upon them. 2. I also have a 360 and have used it a total of 3 times, it's not a lame thing, just mostly pointless. 3. Friends > Start New Chat > Voice/ Video Chat 4. Again, this affects memory usage and, I dunno about you, but I'd prefer that memory be available to developers over the OS. 5. You can.....
I wrote voice messaging! Oh and by the way, can you give a link of 1 youtube video or anything else that we can use our pc webcam as a webcam on PS3? Well i can plug and play my pc usb keyboard - mouse- headset. But my webcam dont work with PS3!
@oguzsasi http://bit.ly/aLNCa8 Not Sonys fault that you bought a Webcam that NEEDS a special driver to just work ... As stated in the PS3 manual, a document you obviousely fail to read for any topic, states that ANY UVC webcam will work.
You must not have very many friends then.. To only use CGC 3 times, haha.
I never used cross game chat either. I usually play the games with my friends and when I'd be playing single player I never wanted to talk to them anyway. Don't get me wrong, I think it's a cool feature. I just didn't use it much when I had Gold. I'm oguzsasi though I think it needs to added to the PSN.
Hah, I was just joking with my comment. But, I personally, use it all the time. There's a few people on my list, that I always talk to. We always make a party, even when we are doing diff things. Like, yesterday, one on Netflix, I was on K&L demo, and other was on MW2.
Nice features on the new Sony laptops. But it would be more awesome if Sony allowed you to do those things from any laptop, not just their laptops.
I'm sure at some point they will make it more accessible. Like most people said, it's a selling point to buy a Vaio. But, I really don't imagine them holding out on everyone else.
they didn't learn from Microsoft you douche!
@ everyone that says VAIO's are overpriced.. i wonder what you think of Macs...
They make so many great games that I now have no life. And Screw Rockstar for making RDR so addicting. I played It for like 12 hours straight 2 days ago and it was like 100 degrees that day and I finally got 100% and I turned it off and forgot to let it cool down. yesterday I turned it on and just played a ps1 game for 3 minutes and my ps3 shut off by itself and now it wont come back on. If I lost all my trophies I will be soooooooooo pissed.
trophies are tied to ur PSN account, so dont worry :). during hot weather i make sure my ps3 has that much more room between all vents.
Remote play is alright. There's definitely lag outside your local area network.
that picture looks pretty similar to eve from wall-e...
Sony should make a PS3 vaio laptop. That can fastboot Chromium with an XMB overlay and full game OS functionality. Well maybe not, but I can dream. oO
Awesome, now the Vaio laptop I totally don't own will sync up with my PS3, assuming I would ever want or need to actually do that some some reason!
rubbish article.sony has been in electronics b4 microsft got into dipers. and vaio is sonys.so how have they learned. dum post.
Hope this comes out for more than just the VAIO...my Toshiba 17 inch Satellite would LOVE this ^_^
It has been done many of times before. I can see it getting some recognition but to be in the top 5?
Sweet deal. This is nice, though i dont know if i would ever use it personally.
