You need an HDMI INPUT not OUTPUT. you most likely do not have an input, because laptop are mostly equiped with HDMi Output. So you need to buy a tv tuner with an HDMI Input!

Actually there IS a way to play ps3 on laptops. There's a cord you can buy so that your laptop becomes a receiver. I've seen it done and have been thinking about doing this myself. It's called Easycap, you'll have to google it to find out where to get it. But I have a question for you - why would you buy a ps3 if you didn't have a TV to play it on? Isn't that kind of ....well I don't know - - - redundant?

can't be done with hdmi


there seems to be a way to do it using the composite cables though

look around for composite to usb maybe

answer NO, the HDMI port is configured for output only, this is the answer I keep getting LOL

it does not.
It just gives you an HDMI input to connect TVs.
So given that the idea others threw that with a tuner one can display ps3 in a laptop's screen, if you go buy a tuner with HD support (apparently having HDMI input) you are done.

If I were you I'd youtube it first...

An alternative is to bo buy an HD monitor. sold cheaply!
