Forget about that Bluetooth PS3 remote
The biggest "design flaw" I've experienced with the PS3 is the lack of an IR remote/receiver to control the mighty monolith. It irks me to no end that Sony felt the need to release only a Bluetooth remote (appearing in stores now). It sort of defeats the purpose of having a fancy universal remote to control all of your home theater components. Certainly the world's greatest HD movie player deserves better. Thanks to Engadget -- via Remote Central -- we can again live the "one remote to control them all" dream.
"You'll need a PSX/PS2 Controller-to-USB adapter as well as an original Sony DVD remote for the PS2 (model SCPH-10172) with external IR receiver (model SCPH-10160)."
It might be a bit of an eyesore and it will take some expense and effort, but it can be done! Certainly Sony must have realized that many home theater enthusiasts would be utilizing the PS3's advanced multi-media capabilities as an integral piece of their home theater. How hard would it have been to include an IR receiver on the PS3? Shame on you, Sony.
