Use a PSPgo to Access a PS3 via Internet

You can use the PSPgo’s remote play feature to access your PlayStation 3 (PS3) via the Internet. When you remotely access your PS3 with a PSPgo, you can access any of the media stored on the PS3, including movies and many software titles. Remote play lets you use your PSPgo to access your PS3 from anywhere that you can connect to the Internet.

In order to use remote play, you’ll need a valid PlayStation Network account and your PS3 system software needs to be version 1.80 or later. If you need a newer software release, you can download it for free at the PlayStation Web site.

  1. Connect the PSPgo to one of the PS3’s USB slots using the multi-use cable that came with the PSPgo.

    Before you can use remote play, you must register the PSPgo with the PlayStation 3.

  2. On the PS3, go to Settings→Remote Play Settings→Register Device. Press the X button.

    A screen will appear stating that you’re about to register a device that can operate your PS3 remotely.

  3. Press the X button again.

  4. On the PSPgo, go to Settings→USB Connection and press the X button.

    This will put the PSPgo into USB mode. On the PS3, you’ll see that the registration completes.

  5. Press the X button on the PS3 to close the registration window. Go to PlayStation Network on the XMB and log in.

    If you don’t have a registered network account, you’ll need to sign up for one.

  6. On the PS3’s home menu go to Settings→Remote Play and press the X button.

    Your PS3 will indicate that it is waiting to connect to a PSP.

  7. On the PSPgo, navigate to the Network option on the XMB, and then to the Remote Play option. Press the X button.

    You can now use remote play to connect to your PS3 either over a private network or the Internet.

  8. Select the Connect via Internet option and press the X button.

    An information screen will remind you that the PS3 needs to be in Remote Play mode. Select the box, if you don’t wish to see this message again.

  9. Press the X button. Select the Registered PlayStation 3 from the list of available connections. Press the X button.

    You’ll see a couple of connection screens and then you’ll be prompted to sign in to the PlayStation Network.

  10. Sign in to the PlayStation network.

    You must log into the same PlayStation Network on the PSPgo that you used on the PS3. Once you’re signed in, the PS3’s XMB will appear on your PSPgo allowing you to access any of the items stored on the PS3.
