The PlayStation 3 (PS3) supports both generic USB keyboards as well as the official PS3 Bluetooth Wireless Keypad. Either of these can be used to navigate around the PS3 XMB menu (the main menu) and to enter text when prompted by the onscreen keyboard. Note that not all games support keyboard input.

Skill level:



  1. 1

    Connect the USB keyboard to any of the USB ports on the front of the PS3.

  2. 2

    Turn on the PS3. Wait until the XMB menu loads.

  3. 3

    Use the directional arrows on the keyboard to manoeuvre around the menu and test its functionality.
