Sponsored Links
156w ago - Following up on the previous releases, today Matlo has updated his PlayStation 3 project which allows users to use a Mouse, Keyboard or Joystick to control their PS3 to version 0.25.

He has also renamed the project from "Sixaxis Emulator" to "Game Input Multiplexer".

To quote: The application receives data from PC peripherals (mice, joysticks and keyboards) and sends checks to the PS3 via Bluetooth or USB. Other controls, such as gestures or voice are possible through the emulation of PC peripherals.

As the old saying goes, if you see news before it gets posted on the PS3 News portal feel free to post it in the forum and we'll promote it to the mainpage as well... usually within 12 hours, 24/7/365.

The news was actually from the 12th of December. The news just went "viral" a couple of hours ago though.

Errrm - this is like 2 weeks old "news" - 0.25 was released on 16 December and not "today" - otherwise indeed very good app, recommended.
