In what would be good news for those who want to extend the already-powerful PS3's functionalities even further, the Sony console's Remote Play system has apparently been successfully reverse engineered.
This comes thanks to the efforts of Dashhacker, who managed to break the authentication system. But wait, what does this mean for PS3 owners? Here's a quick explanation from the PS3-Hacks announcement post:
Well for starters you ll soon be accessing your PS3 from just about anywhere -- your PC, your iPhone, your whatchamacallit, and whatever other Internet-enabled device.
Sounds cool. Dashhacker is reportedly working on a portable API for the hack. Stay tuned for further updates. In the meantime, you can talk about hacks, games, and all things PS3 on our Sony PlayStation 3 forums.
