Will Sony be updating the PlayStation 3's web browser this month?
Don't even call this a rumour I noticed this a month ago, it's just away to protect children from bad sites and they have extended their free trial. How can this link to a new browser lol.
Bringing a new web browser with a new security service that you can pay for would require a FW update.
True but the context of a new browser is a bit much, new security features rumour is easily agreeable but saying that.. all the rumours about whats in 2.7 I don't know what to believe.
it literraly takes 30 seconds to load N4G on the PS3's Web browser. It's so slow.
Try turning the Java off, I only turn it on if I want to watch a video. This site loads almost as fast as it does on my PC.
is that you cant log-in to n4g on ps3 :(
I dont know what you guys are doing to your PS3's but mine loads up this site as well as Youtube and others just fine, ableit slightly slower than this Macbook but its barely noticeable.
Sony, I appreciate Home, I appreciate Flash 9, and I appreciate this. But what I REALLY want are the features that XBL has. In fact, that's what you should be working on more than anything. Why? Because you can then advertise that you have all the features the other side but you offer it for free! Again, give me xgame chat, voice messages, and a party system and I'm set. As is there is a debate as to which service is better. You incorporate all this and there's no debate.
you can log into N4G. but it logs you out everytime you go to the next page. it's little tough to comment using PS3 browser.
Always welcome if that could be the case...odd coincidence, guess it pays off to read the small print.
WTF, pay for something to keep children safe.......... Well I guess we do get to play online for free so why not.
When I wake up in the morning I like turning on my PS3 to check out some sites as opposed to turning on my PC and waiting about 5 minutes for it to completely load to my desktop. With my PS3, I can just turn it on and be online in mere seconds. I get lots of issues, like random freezing or being unable to scroll down if I have too many windows open at once.
And my PS3 has only frozen when in the web browser. PS3 is all "buddy buddy" with Google isn't it? Can we please have a real web browser like Chrome please? That would be FRIKIN amazing!
would rock. I've been using Chrome since it came out and I haven't looked back at IE7 since.
Lately a bunch of articles have begun using the "?" as a way to make questionable accusations about the stupidest of issues and rumors. Now I don't mind a good rumor or two, but there are limits to everything. So I'm asking should I be tired of articles using question marks to just get hits, or should I be glade that I can now use the tall tale "?" as a sign that the following article is a piece of crap.
I dont really care about the browser because i never use it. All i want fixed in future FW updates are faster loading of trophies on PSN cards, faster in-game xmb, maybe even in-game Music Universally, some Interface enhancements (such as the clock/controller bat indicate overlay etc) and cross-game-chat. O and custom avatars is a must!! i have like 14 people on my PSN friends list with the same avatar as me!
i hope they fix on it
you honestly think Sony would tell Kotakua bout THIS! they would announce this lamething at GDC whatever it is its Big and not this crap
Well hay this is for all those parents out there who want to monitor their children good for them and no big deal for us gamers
Google Images anyone? ;D
I don't trust kotaku anyway.
I think if Sony were smart they'd get rid of the Ps3 browser and get Google Chrome into the Ps3,they already have a great relationship with Google and I'm pretty sure Google could use the market share.
I was actually thinking the same thing. :)
Sony should really dump the current browser and use one of the existing, fully-featured ones out there. Either Pay Opera for licenses (and with 20million PS3s, I'm sure they could cut a VERY competitive deal!) or use Firefox. Of course, the latter being open source would mean sony would have to open the source to their version, but so what? Everything's digitally signed on the PS3 anyway, nobody would be able to do anything with it.
Enable Opera or Firefox. I mean, even my damn mobile phone has Opera! Why can't the PS3 get a decent browser?
The only improvement I need is firefox on ps3, stop to invent gunpowder and just do it!!
