During a demonstration at the Tokyo Game Show 2007, Kaz Hirai revealed that the PS3 and PSP's Remote Play functionality has been updated so that you'll be able to switch on, and switch off, your PS3 from anywhere in the world.
This will allow you to access you pictures, music and videos without having to leave your PlayStation 3 on.
The feature will be extended further to allow up to 3 PSP owners to play football/soccer on a host PS3. Also, another two PS3s could be used to spectate the match.

And everyone thought I was crazy when I made a thread about it on PS3forums.com about 6 months ago saying that it could be done.

I can see all kinds of technical limitations for this one. I really wonder if this will work for those that have their PS3 connected wirelessly, for example.
