ok, so i'm getting my PS3 in june with the MGS4 bundle, but i was just wondering if there was a way to play on my laptop's screen. the screen is high def. and i was figuring that would be an awesome choice to play on. now, my laptop has a port for what looks like a monitor (resembles the port that a monitor would plug in to on the back of a PC) and then one for S-Video. now, i'm not sure if these ports are for input or output, but, is there any way to pull off what I'm talking about here?

Its not possible to use your laptop monitor for anything other than the laptop itself as far as i know.

Yea, I don't think you can project an image from your PS3 to the laptop screen. Like the guy above said, that is a video "out" port, meaning that it will only project the image coming from the laptop to anothe device like a projector or an external LCD or CRT monitor. It will not act as a video "in" port.

No, you can't. The video ports on your laptop are outputs, not inputs. Computer monitor yes, laptop screen, no.

Laptops don't have video inputs. They all just output, meaning they send not receive audio/video signals.

No chance of that happening.

well thanks for the burn, but if you really are reading my posts religiously, then you would know that I'm waiting for the MGS4 bundle pack. if you're going to bother stalking someone, at least do it well.

anyways, thanks for the info guys, i appreciate it.
