Sony has issued a new update to their PlayStation 3 Remote Play functionality that will allow users to stream content and control their PS3 from the comfort of their VAIO laptops. The feature has apparently been available in Japan since May this year though it is only now that it is becoming available elsewhere. There is no word on when this feature will becoming internationally though.
The PlayStation Remote Play functionality originally helped PlayStation Portable users to access the Xross Media Bar on their PS 3 to play music, photos, videos and games. With the new service, VAIO users too shall be able to enjoy these services from their laptops.
The service was awaited in the US market for quite a while since the firmware update relating to this feature – version 3.30 was released as early as April of this year. It is not clear what models of VAIO are covered in the latest release though it appears that at least VAIO EA series is covered at the moment.
