Play PC games on your iPhone and iPad now, PS3 games in the near future
While you can't literally install your desired PC games onto your iOS devices for gaming-on-the-go, there has been a way around this: by using remote desktop connectivity to remotely control your PC at home. Now, a developer is working on bringing the PS3 experience to your iOS device.
Software developer PandaElf has already amazed us with their unique remote desktop application. How? Well, besides the usual streaming of Flash content and able to access and use your files on-the-go, their strongest suit is probably gaming. Their app allows users to "stream" and play resource-hungry PC games such as World of Warcraft and Starcraft 2 all through your iOS devices. The result; unbelievably smooth and fast framerates.
Impressive so far, but the developers caught us off-guard with what they are working on now. The app has now been tweaked to play PS3 games. Yes, the joy and goodness of Sony's unrivalled gaming experience right in your hands through your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. Mindblowing, isn't it?
Well, it isn't as easy as it sounds as it requires a computer and some other components on top of having a PS3. Not for the non-tech-savvy and the faint-hearted, but it is defintely feasible and it just shows what is capable with the iOS SDK.
All excited? I'm sorry to say that this version of everyAir that allows your to play PS3 games isn't available to the public yet. But don't worry, the developers have plans to release this in the near future.
everyAir is available now for US$4.99 on the iTunes App Store.
