PS3-Compatible Phone Coming In October 92

SpuriousLogic sends along this quote from CVG: 'You may remember reports of Sony's flashy Aino phone earlier this year which can, among other things, connect to a PS3 via Remote Play, giving you full access to your XMB through its tiny screen. Well, Sony's revealed that the Aino is now just weeks away from release in October, and spewed all the details prospective buyers need to know about the device. ... Remote Play with Aino lets you turn your PS3 on and off, browse and control the XMB and access the internet browser from anywhere in the world. Remote Play also lets you control and access the hard drive's media content on the PS3 using the built-in WiFi or 3G connections via Aino. You can also access the PlayStation Store via Remote Play or chat with friends via the PlayStation Network. It is also possible to buy and download a new game from the Store via Aino so it is ready and waiting for you when you get home.'

    Remote "play" is a misnomer. You cannot "play". The same thing already exists with the PSP. You can poke around your PS3 remotely, but can't play games (and you can't even watch a DVD or BluRay movie). If Sony wants to push this, they need to turn Remote Play into Remote PLAY, not Remote Browse. Then, they have a market. You still working on Ziamat on FFXII and need to take a bathroom break? Grab your phone (or PSP) and continue playing remotely. No problem.

    You clearly don't own a PS3 and have never used one, otherwise you'd know that copying stuff off it is as easy as plugging in a USB stick/HDD and selecting copy from the menu. This includes films and television programmes recorded from television with TVTime.

    This is everything that is wrong with the internet: bad spelling, bad grammar, link to a crappy porn site and iPhone hype (possibly more offensive).
