    Either the ps3 doesn't put out enough mAh for the phone to register as a charger or your ps3 is racist towards any device that is not Sony brand...

    Just tried with my ps3 and my 920 would not charge. Tried on my 360 and started charging right away. My guess is that the ps3 does not put out enough mA for the phone to register that it is being charged. The ps3 controller operates with 300mA which is quite a bit less than our phones and probably charges with a lot less than our phones do as well...
