Why is this big fuzz about that _nearly useless_ remote-play? You can play vidoe on PC? Yes! You can browse web on PC? Yes, much better actually! Can you do any other usefull stuff by remote-play? Not really.. Hell, i would like to use my pc as a terminal to the ps3 to play, but barely a few game support the RP, and not all support real "terminal-like" access. (and what about the ORP? it doesn't work anymore?)
And what about that bit-stream? Now the fat models can also do that? Initially they emphasized it as a superiority over the fat model.
