Hey everyone,

I was wondering that since the new macbook has an hdmi port on it, would it be possible to use it as a monitor for my playstation? That monitor would look fantastic for gaming!

Thanks!

Would believe that port would be a video "out" port, not a video "in" port (same as on a DVD Player, etc.).

You will need a video capture card as you would with pretty much any OS to do that - possibly something like Elgato's Game Capture HD. Don't know anything about it personally, so do your research and make sure it will do what you want.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
