This is not a review, more like a recommendation. When you play a DVD or a Blu-ray disc on the PS3, you can use the controller to navigate menues, start/stop and so on. It works, but it’s not the easiest way. If you do watch a lot of movies, you should invest in the Remote for PlayStation 3. It’s much easier to use since it have dedicated buttons for all functions.
As the controllers, the Remote use Bluetooth technology. So you don’t have to point the controller towards the PS3, but you do it anyway.
The Remote is highly recommanded if you watch a lot of movies.
Here are places you can buy the Remote:
