Messiah's Darklite PS3 DVD/Blu-ray remote

Gaming, Home cinema, Reviews

The Darklite remote is a very nice little thing for controlling your PS3 with, if you’ve fallen into Sony’s trap of using it to watch films rather than play games. It has the double excitement of backlit buttons that light up AND a glowing circle, which will mesmerise all who see it.

The receiver unit has to be plugged into PS3, though, which might ruin the lines of your super-minimalist futuristic lounge, but other than that it’s all very pretty and certainly more of a conversation point than PS3’s software line-up.


A list of stockists can be found on Messiah’s site. But don’t bother with Amazon – they won’t ship it to the UK. Amazon’s never going to catch on with an attitude like that.

  • You must be warned, the remote’s play button won’t work on some blu-ray discs and this not-so-important detail is only mentionned on a troubleshooting card with the package that nobody notices in the first place.
