The studio is also working to allow users to lift clips from TV shows and mix them with their own material to produce a new video.

Grouper is going to be integrated into home when it launches, revamping the site is great maybe we'll see the connectivity between the two and perhaps upload videos (from camera) straight to the site as it was intended.

However, i hope they drop flash unless they use HD plug ins or they use the Divx web plug in.

Is doing a great job with online. They know videos is the key to casual market.

I like the idea of integrated home and ps eye functionality, it's good to see some positive news.

before...people who think that SNE won't cultivate a genuine online service to rival LIVE are dead wrong. It's one of their biggest internal corporate mantras. They WANT to beat LIVE. This was a major bullet point upon the creation of the PS3, they've left the front and back doors of the PS3 left literally wide open for a multitude of online oprations and connectivity. Even if they "don't" beat LIVE they are going to take a hell of a jab at it this time around,and if you ask me...their doing a bang up job right now. It's only going to get better and it's free.
