Connect the PS3 to Your Phone, Starting Next Year

Seems that Sony's not only trying to compete with Xbox Live and Nintendo's similar services, but also with Apple's iTunes. The news of the day is that the PS3 will be able to hook up to your cellphone and you surely know that this is just another reason for those PSP Phone rumors to resurface. The Remote Play functionality featured on the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 3 will probably be expanded in order to allow the next-gen gaming device to connect to many other gadgets.

Linking a PS3 to a mobile phone means hardcore media streaming and maybe a chance to take screenshots and capture videos from the games you play, plus some neat content management of your saves and files. This new feature should be launched by April 2008, probably with the aid of a brand new firmware. It will be interesting to see if the connectivity option is only available for Sony's phones, or the ability to hook up iPhones to our beloved consoles.

Thats a real cool feature

PSP TV connectivity has increased PSP sales worldwide. I am waiting to see what it does to the PS3 with projections saying that PS3 would already do much better in 2008.

2007 is also a good year for PS3 with sales projected to reach 9m in terms of worldwide sales

mighty_douche4735d ago

Good thing that I bought my Sony Ericsson K550i two days ago on saturday, all i need now is a PS3 :D

P.S. Damn and I already have felt in love with it, I guess thats what happens when your only mobile phone before for 3yrs has been a Siemens C65 :D

Ps3=sonys attempt at taking on over 10 different entertainment sectors and losing at all of them.

MAke games...Thats fine...But video player, music service video service?

its been done before and better then you've done and are capable of, The Walkman anal Bead mp3 player is a failing product for a reason...

Did you see the HOME video where they were running the xmb on a cell phone? They said it would work on any cell phone that was using java...which is most cell phones...the xmb that runs on the phone would allow you to remote to the PS3 and do what you can with a PSP to PS3 right now...but the music store inside of the PSN store will be up by then...if microsoft is going to do it with xbox live why can't Sony do it with the PSN? Sony has the music and videos...and they now have the games especially in 2008....what games does the xbox 360 have comming in 2008 that can go up against the PS3 lineup..except for Gears of War 2...which has not even started development yet...
