Remote Play allows PSP owners to remote connect to their PS3 over Wi-Fi, giving them access to friend lists, media streaming, and even play a rare select few PS3 games.
That feature is now available on Sony Vaio computers in the US. Users can play such games as Singstar and Pixeljunk Monsters from their laptop when they're away from the PS3.
Remote Play was also added to select Sony Ericsson mobile handsets beginning last year. The feature is toned down for them, though. No PS3 games are playable on Remote Play phones. All stored media on the PS3 hard drive is still accessible though.
Of course, users still need to activate the Remote Play functionality on the PS3 first, which disables the console from normal operation. All connected devices must be physically registered with the system too.
Nevertheless, it's cool to start seeing this feature break out to more devices. I wonder how long it'll be before you can integrate your PS3 info directly to your Sony Bravia TV so you can check out download statuses and friend availability without switching to the PS3 input.
