New PS3 Portal Beta

Hello gamers, I have come across some interesting news regarding the PS3. Late last night I fired up my PS3 to use the browser, and right away this screen caught my attention.

So I clicked on it and it asked me to fill out a survey in regards to how often I use the web browser on the PS3 (which I do use regularly). The survey itself wasn't really long, about 5 or 6 questions later I was staring at what appears to be a new portal for the PS3.

The article doesn't mention this but I think this beta may only for North America. I'll have to look into that a little more.

I believe it is US only

This was up on neogaf a few nights ago.

It works with your ps3 browser.

you can move left or right with your bluetooth remote, but not very well. DS3 analog sticks or keyboard and mouse are still your best options.

Slow loading.

Very functional, easy to maneuver.

Would make a great HTML5 desktop OS for playstation.

Does not work on ps vita browser.

Vita does not work as a remote for the browser.

You can control the ps3 browser via the vita using remote play.

Thanks for the update Roah. I did notice the slow loading as well, but I just thought that since it's a beta, they'll probably optimize it run a lot quicker when it's all said and done.

i just did the survey and im playing around with it, and im quite surprised how quick the loading is for me.

edit
only YouTube seems to take a bit of time loading about 30 seconds. the other screens load in about 10-15 seconds for me.

I hate the new Youtube App so is there anyway to used the browser version?

ShoryukenII1419d ago

Best stick to PS3Youtube.com then. No matter what Sony does, they can never beat the convenience of predownloading to watch in 1080p.

I love that site. Was always downloading 1080p vids to ps3 untill a month ago they seem to have problems.cant be fixed as of yet

@leogets
it might be fixed now. i just Dl'd a vid last night from the site. after i did the whole process of copy paste the link, blah blah blah. also, about 2 weeks ago, i figured out u had to do that copy/paste shit for each vid to DL.

@ nevin1

There's a way to use the browser version. Load up the YouTube XL from the Default browser on your PS3. At the bottom left side of the screen, it says "View Standard Version". Click on it, and it'll take you to the browser version of it.

What is the PS3 portal for anyway?
I can only access the Japanese portal so ignored it.
Does anyone use web portals in general?
Has the PS3 web browser improved?

lorcraven1418d ago

Damn since I'm barely use my ps3, this articles title had me thinking of the game portal when I clicked on it!

Looks good. Here's hoping for a EU beta.
