PS3 On A Computer Monitor

Sunday, February 22nd, 2015 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips

Brian asks,

I am looking for a device that I can plug my PS3 into and play my video games on my computer screen. Can you please provide me with a device that will work for my application?

 Hi Brian,

The good news is, you may not need a device at all, but rather a cord, depending on your computer monitor setup.

If your computer monitor has an HDMI port, then all you would need is an HDMI cord from your PlayStation to your computer monitor. This would be the best option.


If your monitor does not have an HDMI port, the next best option would be a DVI port. This would allow you to use a DVI to HDMI adapter. Keep in mind, though, that these will not transfer sound and you’d likely need an additional connection for audio.


Finally, the last option, is to use the VGA connection. This would require you to purchase an adapter to convert from HDMI to VGA, as this is not a digital signal. This could be expensive and may not provide a very high quality picture.
