    I saw a short clip of someone using this it looked good but can you really get clear streaming video and audio

    and is it worth buying

    TV on your psp is not worth $300!

    will the ps3 have a location free player built in

    PSP 1.5 got on USA first day is was 1.5 NOW 4.01 M33-2 -> 5.00 M33-6(1.50 addon),
    Old PS3s: PS3 60GB FW:3.41(2nd ps3 YLoD, 1st, YLoD)
    New PS3:
    Slim 160gb 01-21-2011 Working
    was 3.40 OFW->3.60 OFW

    2nd PSP : PHAT 5.50 GEN-D2
    3rd PSP : Sliver 3000 Starting OFW:4.20 (NEW bought NEW on 11/28/2010)
    It a good idea to have "Hide extensions for known file types" in Folder Options(under Tool) unchecked (turn on extensions)

    I would look into a slingbox instead of the sony location free player. It is the same principle, but can be used from any computer connected to the internet and thus the psp as well. Would see if it works on psp first though. Price is $200. http://www.slingmedia.com/indexa.php

    I don't think the slingbox works on the psp, it needs windows running. The PS3 is does not have Locationfree player in it, it works with the same principle just not the same streaming media from one source to another. It has DVR thats what the 20 gb and 60gb hardrive are for and other things. You record something onto your PS3 and then it converts it to MP4 unless the PS3 can use MP4 as well? and you stream, its like LocationFree player, but it has to be recorded first. I hear its clear and not pixelated when watching. Though only if you have a fast connection.

    location free player is shit! Tell me, how many hotspots do you encounter when youre out? Even better, hwo many times do you have your PSP with you at starbucks and just wanna sit there and start watching some TV? ummmmmm... 0% of the time? Its useless junk, novelty. And novelty has a price limit and $300 (at least for me, and most sane people) is above the limit.

    No, but it will have another type of video streaming ability form anythign recorded onto it. It seems likely that sony will implement a location free server of sokme sort into the ps3 for this functionality as it would be easiest for them.

    My friend has a location free player at his house and its pretty cool. He comes to my house alot and he connects through my router to stream stuff to his psp. Its pretty cool if you got the extra money I guess. His dad got it on accident cause he thought it was something else and ended up having to keep it cause he lost the receipt.

    heh, $300 is nothing for the locationfree player. Thats cheap considering the other model. The take-along-with-a-screen model costs $1500 and you have to carry around a 12.1 inch screen.

    If you're thinking of buying it....dont.
    This is a signature that will eventually tell you I\'m really cool because I have a really flashy picture...but I forgot to make it. =[
