As in use the MacBook as a monitor or actually play PS3 games on the MacBook itself?

I think some of the EyeTVs will allow this.

being there isn't an "in" port for third party devices to use the screen of the laptop, i sincerely doubt this is possible.

besides, there isn't a huge difference in "widescreen" of even a 17" MBP than a regular old 19" or larger TV. it just might look a little better.

As mentioned, you can do this with an EyeTV. I have a Hybrid and it works perfectly with no noticeable lag (unless you enable recording).

Is there an app to allow you to control your PS3 via bluetooth? Ie. Instead of using the gamepad, to use the keyboard on a macbook through bluetooth? I use my PS3 to stream from my Mac, and as such it would be helpful.
