I'd like to see a PS3 media remote control app for my Android smartphone.

Reason being, I never bought one of those PS3 Blu Ray remotes. But I would be willing to buy a real physical remote before I paid for an app. The app would have to be free or only a few bucks to get my attention.

Yeah. If it were a 'software Blu-ray remote', then people who already had one of those smartphones could get this instead of a PS3 Blu-ray remote. I could see a limited market for that. Even more interesting would be something that allowed a smartphone to emulate a PS3 controller.

But this... I can't imagine what the sales pitch was to make anyone think it was a marketable idea.

I can't imagine myself using this either. Really... I have a remote for my bluray player and that's all I should need. If I want to watch special features, I want them on my tv, not my phone. If I was just using my ps3 controller for movies, then I might be able to see this as cool, if it worked as a remote for every movie... but it doesn't.
