Eurogamer: "PlayStation 3's upcoming 2.50 firmware includes support for Flash 9 via the console's web browser alongside various changes announced yesterday."
Fantastic news. Sony never list the complete set of features/enhancements on their blog. I believe this is something a lot of people have been waiting for.
Having a web browser without flash support is "ok", not great but this makes the browser on the PS3 fantastic. Too many flash based sites to ignor this so you can bet your bottom dollar that I am a happy camper for this little added bonus.
I've been waiting for Flash to be updated in the PS3 browser. This is going to open up so much more web content. I don't use the PS3 browser for every day web surfing, but there are some sites that I want to view on my TV. If Flash is really updated then now I can.
I know many people have been waiting for this update/feature, me being one of them =D Gz Sony ^_^
Now i don't have to go to my downstairs computer for anything.
YES, finally! pr0n on the PS3! lmao jk jkkjkjkjkjkjkjk. But seriously, fapping is to be had. Don't try and act all mature N4G users, you know that you're going to.
I can't think of any PS3 users that wouldn't be happy about this news...Yet all throughout this comment section, there are a ton of disagrees...jealous fanboys?
Now I hope Hulu.com works :) :) :) Woot!
Don't worry Mr Bun- I just slammed the Agree button. lol @ there being exactly 4 disagrees for each of the first replies. Probably from the same 4 jealous people.
...just reading you say you slammed the agree button made me giggle :)
finally!!....i can finally start using my browser more often. +1 for SOny!! LoL
I'm gonna beat off like there's no tomorrow!
Good thing that your friend list doesn't show which website you are on!
2.40 - No More in-game XMB complaints 2.50 - No More Flash 9 complaints What's next?
I can watch hulu now. Man sony is doing great stuff.
OH YEA! BALLS ON THE PAVEMENT!!!!!
@1.6 Who gives a damn about agrees and disagrees. I logged in just to disagree with you.
is this for real? if so it would be awesome to browse flash sites on the PS3.
I think so... its eurogamer not some random site...but you never know for sure till you get it in your own hands. Will finally be able to watch iplayer without the special iplayer site some user made. (thanks a lot, whoever that was. awesome fix btw). the only problem then was that you didn't get the best reslution as you were using flash 7 I think....this is should be xxxtimes better.
This also means sites like gametrailers.com will be working!
They've printed the press release that confirms this on the "semi-offical" European blog threespeech ( http://threespeech.com/blog... so I'm confident this is true.
Yes...now sites with video will work properly..maybe gametrailers.com...some can dream...update list is welcome its just that i will have to exit the Littlebigplanet beta (if i do won't work because its expired). Still have the PS3 running, hehe, until release day!!!
Yes I've been wanting to watch flash 9 videos on my PS3 for a while! IGN requires Flash 9 just to access the area where you can successfully select "Download"! As of right now, no matter how many times you press "Download" nothing happens! Hooray for PS3 Firmware!
Cool now I can troll on my PS3.
Thats really awesome, really makes the browser fully functional.
Hell YEAH!!! xD We've all been waiting for this! i wont need the stupid computer for anything! i can watch and stream trailers! xD
Excellent, now the browser should actually function properly.
Excellent. You may as well say I have no use for my shotty ass PC now, well except torrents. Sony you're awesome, but not more than me! TGSI
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS woooo great news! That's the biggest thing I missed from the PS3 browser! Now I can watch online movies, tv shows from surfchannel.com n crap all on my 1080p 52 inch bravia! wooo
i know, i love surf the channel, but somethings dont work because of the flashplayer, but now anysite pretty much with video is now able to be watched.
you know what would make this great is if the PS3 could play .flv files. Hopefully this flash support feature makes its way to the PSP as well.
Alright, someone correct me if I'm wrong, but considering that the current PS3 browser works with YouTube.com, that lends me to believe that yes it can play .flv files as that is all YouTube serves up. The difference now is that it can play .swf and all that other jazz that is made in the latest version of Flash.
I think you mean JA-PAN.. Team Japan Video Game Police.
im just pleased about the update JA-PAN-ESE FCUK YEAH ok damn, lost a bubble for that......why so serious
Don't worry about it mate. Here's another bubble to replace the one you lost.....
I can now troll on my PS3 hehe
I will troll along with you on my ps3
But THIS FEATURE IS HUGE IMO.
http://blog.us.playstation.... It says - "On a related note, the PS3 firmware update (2.50) will add Flash Player 9 support to the PS3 Web browser, so you’ll be able to actually watch this video (and all of our blog videos) on your PS3 once the firmware goes live!" ;-P ;-P ;-P PS3 is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!;)
Ah mate the PS3 has been able to do this for quite some time. TGSI
Youtube can fullscreen just fine on ps3. I am happy b/c I can watch videos on myspacetv now! :D
There's now one less thing we have to put up with on those stupid "How the XMB could be better" lists.
Does this mean that I'll now be able to watch Gametrailers' videos on my PS3? That's really something I've been wanting to do... but to my knowledge it wasn't possible before.
Yes it should as IGN requires the same thing also. TGSI
Clutch Sony, megaclutch. 2.5 is right up there with 2.4. If it launched w/Home....2.5 would be the best yet imo.
I can now Stream Australian ABC shows (Good Game) via iView .... HALLELUJAH
Why the Disagrees ??? What dont you Get ??? I Watch Good Game Weekly.... http://www.abc.net.au/tv/go... And this flash Support meansFlash support for iView http://www.abc.net.au/tv/iv... I really dont "GET" some people on these forums.... EDIT: Ahh, Have just discovered the Phantom ,,, Anyways, If you havent checked out Good Game, Give it a go, Albeit on your Win/Mac machine.... UNTIL THE UPDATE... YAY
The Random Disagree Monster is out...Just don't move...it only detects movement...
Just Downloaded It..... IT WORKS !!!!!!!!!
YES!! It's really good news.
.....best update i remember screenshots+ webbrowse = epic win
Does this mean the psp will get flash 9?
IMO Sony should just call up Mozilla to make Firefox run natively on the PS3. Heck, didn't Sony talk about partnerships with Google at E3? Google should make Chrome running on the PS3. That would be sweet. Nevertheless 2.50 is another great firmware update.
with many company to bring M$ to it knees
Yes indeed it is. Apparently it's bad news for the phantom disagreer and his 4+ (updated) accounts lol.
Hopefully someone will take a look and perma-ban the phantom disagreer. I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to find with all the disagrees.
Yeah, if the mods can ban all the multiple accounts...o_o; It seems that some people hate good PS3 news these days.
But I ain't complaining one bit. I will now be able to watch crunchyroll animes on my HD set!!! Cheers everyone!
I wonder what other goodies they have for us..
why i cant log in to n4g via the ps3 browser?????????? this is bullshit!!!
Someone is going through and disagreeing with every comment. How incredibly mature. A round of applause for the fine phantom! :) *golf clap* Haters are just so darling.
A disgruntled 360 owner is all, jealous of everything the PS3 has now and coming for it. So not surprising and typical of a 360 owner, just full of rage that he/she must get out and what better way than clicking a little "disagree" button on the internet? You're really showing those PS3 owners, pal.
I really love how we have trolls just disagreeing with everything we say. Very mature guys, keep it up. TGSI
