UPDATE: There is a way to play your PS3 games without a lag, buy EasyCap (a hardware item) that lets you connect composite connections to your PC though a USB connection. I have bought it and tried it out myself and that method works better than this actually. But keep in mind there its not HD, nor is this but its better than nothing.

HERE's the EasyCap method: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fg7avM...

Many have asked, is it possible to use a laptop screen to play a ps3 or xbox? the answer is yes. what you need is a tv tuner for your laptop, without that its not possible. And some other stuff. I hooked up my ps3 to my sony aw290 and played COD4 on it. but the problem with doing that is that there is a 4-5 lag on what you do and what actually shows up on the screen. So this CONCEPT is not practical. I mean this isnt very hard to set up. Im not some techy guy, i just thought it would work and used common sense and a converter box and it worked. lol

Tthere is a HUGE lag, like 4-5 seconds, and you can't play videos and games there is such a lag that when you move the analog stick you move 5-6 later in the game and its not practical, thats why it looks like i was shooting like crazy and out of control, cause i was trying to get it into control but there lag was sooo bad and long. It not practical at all.

But to do it, you need a laptop with a built in tv tuner, like one that has a coaxial cable for over the air or you can buy a tv tuner that is usb and has a coaxial on the other side which usually for over the air channels, a cable box (RF Modulator) that converts composite into coaxial and with that you need a coaxial cable, and you use that to connect the coaxial into the input coaxial on the tv tuner.

Things that you need:

Here is the RF Modulator used to convert the ps3 output into coaxial and to the tv tuner: http://www.computercablestore.com/RF_...

TV Tuner:
and you dont have to have a built in tv tuner like me, you can buy an external one like this: http://www.buy.com/prod/avermedia-ave...
see how it has a usb on one side and coaxial on the other? i use that too sometimes instead of the built in,so i can get over the air channels

Coaxial Cable:

and you need the basic composite cables(red,yellow,white) cable that comes with the ps3 to connect to the RF Modulator.

You can do it like that, but trust me, its not worth it or does it make sense, because there is a lag that makes it useless to do it. Its just going to be a waste of money. I did it because i already had everything and wanted to see if it was possible. Its a cool idea, just not a great working one that can be used to play games like on a tv.
