We have already mentioned about the awesome everyAir application for the iOS based devices such as iPhone and iPad. This is an amazing application that allows to play PC games on your iOS device! Well, in essence this application is a remote desktop application but highly customized and tuned for a particular application (gaming) on the iDevices.
Judging from a post on the developer’s blog of the everyAir they seems to be indeed working to bring the support of PS3 games in the application! In that case you will essentially be playing your PS3 games on your iPhone! But apparently it will still take some time before the this supports comes near you. However, they do have an amazing video that shows a live demo of the playing PS3 games (in this case Little Big Planet 2 and God of War) on your iPhone. Video animation on the iPhone from the games look smooth which suggests that they are indeed deep in the development cycle of this technology. Which is a good news!
As the developer’s also explain in the video there is no magic involved here but some clever techniques & tools to make it possible:
The trick is to connect a capture device and a USB mouse/keyboard device to the PS3. The capture device sends video data to the PC, and the USB keyboard/mouse sends the button presses. On the PC itself, you run a custom build of everyAir which understands custom gestures and pipes the input to the PC which then sends it to the PS3 via the input interpreter. More details are described in the video.
Unfortunately as promising as this technology sounds, there is no firm release date for this. As soon as a release schedule is announced for it you will be the first to know!
