Pros: controls more than just ps3, cost

If you use your PlayStation 3 as your DVD and Blu Ray player like I do, you already understand the need to have a controller other than the video game variety. These large, bulky controllers are not comfortable to keep under the blankets with you and while the controls are easy to use to play, rewind and fast forward your movies, the PS3 remote put out by Sony is a wonderful tool.

The remote control does everything the video game controller does, but comes with a lot more options. The buttons are easy to get used to and you can even program the controller to work your television, allowing you to stash away some remotes while using this controller. The controller doesn't only work when you are watching DVDs, you can also use it for internet streaming options that can be downloaded to your system including Netflix and Amazon Prime; as well as listening to music stations through the system.

The programming of this remote control is easy to do and allows turning on or off subtitles and allowing you to get to the main screen at any point during your movie.
