Official Playstation 3 Blu-ray Disc Remote ControlOwners of the Playstation 3 will have no doubt made good use of the consoles ability to play Blu-ray discs by now. With its superb performance, many people are using this as their main Blu-ray player, but the problem with this is the fact that you need to use the games controller to operate it – which is not the easiest thing to do!

The simple answer would normally be to buy a normal universal remote control like the Logitech Harmony One, but the Playstation uses a Bluetooth signal so it cannot be controlled by a regular infra red programmable remote. This is where he official Sony Playstation 3 Remote Control comes in.

As a remote control is is pretty darn good. It does everything you would expect a regular DVD or Blu-ray player remote to do, including ejecting discs and turning the console onto standby, and the buttons are well organised and clearly labelled. It also feels nice in the hand being a nice size and weight. You can also have a lot or geeky fun with it because being bluetooth, you don’t actually have to point it at the console. It kept us amused anyway! We still think the remote control should have been included with the console if Sony really wanted the Playstation 3 to be taken seriously as a Blu-ray player, but at around £15 its not an expensive purchase.

Why you should buy the Official Playstation 3 Blu-ray Disc Remote Control

At around £15 it is not an expensive purchase, and if you are using your Playstation 3 reguarly as a Blu-ray player, it really is an essential one.
