Maybe I'm not as bright as i thought i was, but could someone answer this, plain and simple :

Will this allow me to play Battlefield2, Company of Heroes and World of Warcraft, on the PS3 ?

Because when i clicked on their video that says "Stream Games from a Windows PC to a PlayStation3", they showed'em controlling a toy copter through a PS3 controller, that's not a PCGame.

Does this mean Crysis on PS3 ?.. I'm still shocked.

Meh, never mind, turns out all it does is stream the PC games to your PS3 and that's it, you still need a fully speced PC to run'em games and the PS3 got nothing to do with it.

The only benefit from this is if your PC is in the other room you can stream'em games to where you are just for the mere convenience of it.

its more of a projector than actually playing the games as someone above mentioned. damn, got hyped for nothing...first thing that popped in my head was crysis lol.

Yes, but they're still PC games. The PS3 isn't changing them, and you need the same spec PC if you were running it on a PC. This is merely making the PS3 into a projector.
