Logitech PS3 adapter
Logitech on Tuesday announced it is now shipping its Harmony Adapter for PlayStation 3, letting users control their PS3s with their universal Logitech Harmony remotes. It connects to the PS3 via a Bluetooth connection, leaving the USB ports free for other peripherals, and includes an AC adapter for power. Logitech or other IR remotes normally can't control the PS3 as the game console relies on Bluetooth alone for communications with Sony remotes.
The adapter will let Harmony owners control all 51 commands of the PS3, including navigating the XMB interface as well as DVD and Blu-ray disc playback functions. The Logitech Harmony Adapter is now available in the US for $60 and will begin shipping to Europe in July.
