Preparing for first-time use

Before using remote play via the Internet, do the following:

  • Link the PS3™ system and your system to the same Sony Entertainment Network account.
    If you created an account on a device such as the PS3™ system or a computer, you can use that account on your system.
  • When using an access point provided by a commercial or public Wi-Fi service, or by a private wireless network, set up your system so that it can connect to that access point.

Registering your system with the PS3™ system

Register your system using the Wi-Fi on your system and the PS3™ system.
If you are using a PS3™ system that does not have Wi-Fi network capability, register your system by connecting your system to the PS3™ system through an access point that is connected to the PS3™ system. Perform this procedure with your system near the PS3™ system or the access point.
