Using the PS3 to watch movies is fine and all, but inevitably it’s just one more piece of home theater gear that requires a stand alone remote. That is until the fine folks at snakebyte developed their Premium Bluetooth Remote. In addition to controlling the PS3 and up to 6 IR devices, it can read and display the indoor room temperature on its LCD screen, learn IR codes from any remote and be recharged via a USB connection.
According to Snakebytes US distributor, Sunflex USA, we can expect it this April for $49.99.
