    Don't know if this has been posted before, but...

    On a whim, I tried syncing up my new Al bluetooth keyboard with my PS3 and it worked like a charm. I really didn't expect it to, but it functions perfectly.

    Just thought I'd put it out there in case anyone else was thinking about it.

    Not yet.

    I haven't been using my wireless MM on my iMac because of the right-clicking issue (for some reason my wired MM never has the problem) so I need to get some batteries before I can try to pair it with the PS3. I'm pretty confident it will work, though.

    I would assume you could use them on some games. Right now all I have is NCAA 08 and Assassin's Creed, neither of which need them (and I prefer the controller, anyway).

    So far, I've only used the keyboard to navigate the PS3's menus and the Internet (which looks pretty awesome on a 50" plasma).

    I could NOT get a wireless white apple keyboard or a wireless mighty mouse to work with my PS3.

    Has anyone had luck with either?

    I'm about to buy the Apple bluetooth keyboard for my PS3 (the silver keyboard at £49.99) It's pretty dear, but worth it as ?I can use it with my mac too.

    I take it the wireless mouse works too?

    How long do the batteries in the keyboard last?

    Thanks :)

    PS3 and Apple Wireless Keyboard

    Hello everyone, I finally found the solution for pair the Apple Wireless Keyboard to the PS3 system...

    Once the PS3 generate de hash to be introduce in the keyboard for the pairing process you need to press the ENTER key after typing all the characters generated by PS3.. without pressing enter the PS3 never will recognize the pairing.

    Cheers!
