Bluetooth for Blu-Ray: The PS3 remote goes Bluetooth

Ben Kuchera of ars technica thought he could use his nice universal remote with his PS3. Apparently he was wrong. Engadget reports that the remote works via Bluetooth.

.. cus the infrared remote of the 360 is useless if u got ur 360 in ur closet :)

.. a well, the controller still works fine for me :)

This is stupid in my opinion. It kills the ability to use programmable remotes like a Harmony.

might be stupid right now, but sony announced not to long ago that their newer tv's are also going to ship with bluetooth remotes. however they still will be able to support infrared, so perhaps the ps3 will be like this aswell, so you can still use your universal remote, just the standard one will be bluetooth. atleast that is what i would do to make the transition easier

We might even be able to use our cellular as a remote as well... Maybe through a small thirdparty software we download to our phones.

Bluetooth is the future, and so will Blu-ray. Learn to live with it. The PS3 will be the number 1 console in 4 years and every year after that. Sony is in this for the long run.

I don’t collect games for their value I collect games I enjoyed playing. Many games I own are worth a lot of money but they must be games I want to play for me to purposely collect them. Most of this list isn’t games I would enjoy. I may have some of these games because I bought my friends PS2/3 Collection years ago and I never actually looked what was in it. It was a couple hundred games though still sitting in a box and I’m sure there are some good valuable games. I should go sift through it sometime.

WET and Quantum Theory were both phenomenal

I remember Stranglehold! One of the first DLC packs of its time. A bit expensive, but cheap by today’s standards.

Another PS3 hidden gems list, and yet again Time Crisis 4 and Time Crisis Razin' Storm get snubbed. Such fun games, that shouldn't be forgotten. If only we got a home port of Time Crisis 5: Mastermind Edition.

WET is something I wish they'd remake, they had so many great ideas but not all of them were executed properly

It had a lot of potential

Also Wanted Weapons of Fate is another game that had some new fun gameplay ideas.
