Your display is DVI in so I'm guessing your using a HDMI to DVI cable or adopter for the PS3, if so then all youe need is a DVI swicth. Some KVM's swicth DVI but may be more that you need since you don't have to worry about mouse and keyboard.

The KVM's with DVI look very expensive, you should be able to find just a DVI switch.

NCIX.com - Buy Syba CL-KVM-281 USB 2 Port USB DVI KVM Switch with USB Cables - CL-KVM-281 In Canada.

A cheap dvi/kvm/usb switch. It will do the job and you can use the keyboard to operate the switch and maybe share usb devices like controllers or wireless.
