This product is exclusively for use with the PlayStation 3 system. This remote control uses Bluetooth wireless communication to operate playback of Blu-ray Discs (BD) and other types of disc media on the PlayStation 3 system.

That's the description anyway, I saw that this is £13.99 from 7DayShop and that's a good price, it's possible to get it a little cheaper.

By getting a 15% off code from rewardyourthirst.com/Reg…spx it's possible to save £2.39 and pay £13.56 instead of £15.95. It seems that the codes will run until March 31st, so plenty of time to get as many codes as possible (you can get virtually unlimited codes using the fake email/friend refer system).

I'm not sure if the codes can be used with other potential '£1 off £10' type codes.

Do you have a link to this specific deal?

I couldn't find it in a search.

Lot of hassle to save 43p

Please see OP description above for details of how to get the lower price.

Please amend your title and price to the actual price, seeing as those 15% off vouchers no longer work.
And at that price it is more expensive than amazon, at £14.99:

Cold from me.

I actually regret getting this. EVERY button on it acts like a power button for the console. Accidentally knock it, drop it, put something on top of it and BEEP, you've switched on your PS3, and have to wait 2 minutes before you can turn it off. Gets very annoying very quickly.

100% agree with this. It needs a dedicated power button to prevent accidentally switching it on. Nudging the remote on the table causes it to press a button and then your Playstation jumps to life and you've got to wait and switch it off. Even just picking it up you sometimes accidentally press a button.

is there an alternative remote?

@ morocco and mandles i also 100% agree. Why o why did sony allow for any button press to turn your ps3 on? my ps3 remote resides in a draw now and will probably never see the light of day again because of this.

Typical of Zavvi to stop the promotion. I managed to get one at the 15% off price, guess they caught on that the system was exploitable and blocked the codes.

Sorry

If you are looking at a harmony just be aware that whilst it is a fantastic piece of kit (I have the Harmony one) you have to pay another £50 on top for an adapter to allow it to control a PS3 - poor show

I use a move navi controller, dunno if it does everything needed, but it rewinds, fast forwards, pauses and plays - that's enough for me

It's a shame because other than that stupid error, which I bet could've been solved with a FW update, it's an excellent remote, good build quality and clear set out with excellent access to the necessary functions.
