Default PS3 and PSP combo

How many people here have a PS3 and a PSP? I'm just wondering because I love the combo and am wondering how you use them together to increase the functionality of both

Well, I have a PS3, and my oldest son has a PSP, but we haven't really gotten into using them together. Let me know what you find out

I have used the remote play on it, where by I can turn on the PS3 from the PSP, watch videos and listen to music over wi-fi, backup all of my saved game data on the PS3 to the PSP....surf the web...etc, etc, etc, but I'm sure there is more that I am missing out on

Flame War!

While I do think that the PSP to PS3 interface is interesting, their choice of bluetooth limits the PS3's integration with the rest of my AV equipment. For example, I can't use it with my Logitech Harmony.

With that said, I have a PS3 and it's crap. The graphics are circa 2004 (my PC has much much better graphics) and the sound isn't great either. It also makes a really poor blue ray player.

PS3 graphics crap? I'd say it's very comparible to the 360 and it should get even better as designers take more advantage of it down the road. PC's usually always have better graphics, but for a console, it's pretty damn good.

Bad as blu-ray player? In general, i think it's considered one of the best blu-ray players on the market. Also does a great job of upconverting old dvd's.

This is probably the first time I've heard this from someone

I'll agree with you on the Bluetooth though. I'd like to have one remote to control everything. And I still prefer my 360 for gaming.

I have both a PSP and a PS3. I just recently got the remote play thing working.

What I love is I can play my entire itunes library from anywhere on the planet as long as I have wi-fi. I haven't played games or anythign remotely....but the music things really kicks ass. It is so weird seeing the exact PS3 menu layout on my PSP from hundreds of miles away. Just seems almost...scary.

And I'll second the blu-ray player for the PS3 not being a POS...it is one of the best on the market right now.

I don't know, I'd rather just have the $25 BT remote sitting on the table instead of the $55 IR2BT.
