    That projector has an input for component video, which will support 720p for both gaming and Blu-ray movie watching. So buy a component AV cable for the PS3 and use that (its the same cable as the one for the PS2): .

    DVD video is limited to 480p over component, but that is the native resolution of DVD anyway and the projector can upscale that instead of the PS3.

    Notice I said component video and not composite. Composite video only uses a single yellow plug for video and will not support HD video. A component cable uses three RCA plugs (blue, green, and red) for video and supports HD in most cases.

    Your PS3 should have come with a cable that outputs to yellow, red and white RCA. Just use the yellow RCA to plug into the projector. You would then plug the red and white RCA into a receiver for audio.
