Switch on your PS3 remotely!

During a demonstration at the Tokyo Game Show 2007, Kaz Hirai revealed that the PS3 and PSP's Remote Play functionality has been updated so that you'll be able to switch on, and switch off, your PS3 from anywhere in the world.

now that's smart.... should have been thought of when they brought out the whole remote play over the internet.....

our PS3's over a network connection without potentially leaving the system on all day long (for long-distance remote play). This is necessary, but cool. Sony needs to continue pushing Remote Play as it's a great feature that no other competitor can offer.

why would you need this? Its not like leaving the oven or iron on. I dont understand why this is cool?

someone help me out

one good reason is cause you cant turn off your controller when you leave it on remote play. that means you either come home to a dead controller or have to have it plugged into the usb contstantly chargeing which will kill the battery life faster.

It's not an oven but if you are gonna leave home for a week going to a trip or something, you r not gonna leave your ps3 on for a full whole week will ya?

Also, instead of leaving your ps3 on everyday; you can turn it on whenever you want for a demo download or playing a game. You just need to bring your psp w/o the worries of needing it or not.

Just think about it, lying next to a pool in some far off country and you're in a hotel which has wireless coverage. Maybe you want to listen to music or watch a film, stored on your PS3's hard drive. This will allow you to do that.

I, for one, can't wait till it's implemented.

lmao. seriosly give me a break, Why waste resources towards a minor feature?

The resources and time spent on this "clever" gimmick should of been towards getting In-game music/Instant messaging during a game...

OR at least a freaking pinball game that utilizes the 6axis motion.

Damn Sony get with the program and start marketing the ps3 as a videogame/Movie player, not as a super computer!
