PS3 integrates with the Sony Bravia Range

1 min read


One of the little known upgrades in the new PS3 Slim is it’s ability to interact with Sony’s own Bravia range of HD TV’s.

If you connect your PS3 Slim to a Sony Bravia TV you will be able to access all the media playback facilities through the Bravia’s remote as well as using that very same remote to turn the PS3 on and off at will… Just like magic.

While not much else has been said about it yet I am glad to see Sony waking up to the fact of integrating all its components together and playing against it’s strengths to offer nice added extras.

Now they just need to make it simple for me to record directly from my Bravia TV to my PS3 and it will suddenly become the most important device in the living room. My current PVR alternative is just not shaping up at the moment.

    is this just for the slim, or will it be part of the 3.0 fm update and be a feature for all ps3 sku’s?

  • RSA-Ace

    Its for all of them. No firmware features will be console specific (bravia sync and linux have to do with hardware it think – thats the only difference between the consoles)

  • A lot of kids are going to want one for Christmas :biggrin:

  • RSA-Ace

    Sorry i’m an idiot. i had a few pages opened and i didnt think this article was about the bravia sync. this will only be for the slim

  • Ozzy

    more incentive to get meself a bravia. been eyeing/drooling over them for ages.
