Use your PSP as a Xbox media center Remote!

Following the initial discovery (crkinard, wombatm, roto, others) of the tiny browser built into the game WipeOut:Pure on the Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP), I started doing some extensive testing the extent of it's support for JavaScript, DHTML, CSS, etc.The method for doing this is detailed on a number of sites, including the ps2dev.org forums. My primary page (screenshot on PSP) is linked off another little portal page by fugimax (thanks). With a bit of DNS trickery, the page that WipeOut tries to access by default can be pointed to a different page entirely.

The browser doesn't have any buttons or address bar, although it can be controlled with L/R shoulder buttons == Back/Forward, Square button == Reload, Start == Go to Homepage. Since I determined the browser didn't support frames at all, the first thing I set out to do, which is still a work-in-progress (yes bugs), was to create a script that injects a URL bar into any page that's loaded, so you'll always have a handy way to jump to another site.

The next top thing on my mind was to use the PSP as a WiFi remote for XBMC! I did up a rudimentary test page for it, and low-and-behold, it works beautifully! How cool and ironic is that, controlling an XBox app wirelessly through a Sony Portable :D

GameSpot has reported that Sony will indeed make a full-fledged browser & other apps available on a special UMD utility disc which will become available first with the Korean launch of the PSP.
