VAIO Remote Play in PS3 firmware

3.30 laid groundwork for PC control.

Sony's most recent fun-postponing mandatory system update for PS3 also paved the way for VAIO PCs to take remote control of your console.

That's according to the official release notes (thanks Kotaku), which state: "You can now select [PC] as an option under [Remote Play Settings] > [Register Device].

"When you select this option, you will be able to use the remote play feature to operate your PS3 system from future models of the VAIO PC.

"Details of this feature will be announced on the official VAIO website at in May 2010."

It not being May yet, all that you can find on the VAIO website is some lifestyle photography and a few notices of intent.

PS3's 3.30 firmware also introduced new ways of sorting Trophies and updated the console to prepare it for the launch of 3D stereoscopic games this summer.
