That is great news. I would love to see Chrome on the PS3.

Or you could use your computer...

Blacktric2294d ago (Edited 2294d ago )

Yeah. Also, he can use his computer to play games and watch movies too. Who cares about PS3 getting even more awesome features right?


Joni-Ice2294d ago (Edited 2294d ago )

@ Best and Kyl277....PS3 having a internet browser is convenient. Chrome on the PS3 will make the experience better.

EDIT: Unless you're a part of the Stealth Disagree Clan, Please explain why you disagree.

I was told the same thing when I was complaining about the removal of the otherOS, "u can use the PC!"... Now u use the same logic and get tons of disagrees.

Oh the irony. Having BC, otherOS and card readers was convenient too but no one complained when they got removed. In fact, people were getting disagrees and being bubble-raped for complaining.

PS3/4 = Powerful gaming console, HD Blu Ray player, file manager (movies, music, pictures netflix etc.) Social network (PS Home) Online store (PS Store) and web browser (soon to be Google Chrome)

Overall a solid media center, fit to do anything you need it to in your living room or elsewhere.

People who don't need to manage any documents/use computer software don't even need a computer if they have a PS3.

Before I get called a troll, the 360 (and future gen Xbox) will be able to do most, if not all of that too.

Everything does everything nowadays, my toaster plays HD 1080p video and has Wifi. /s

Sony's cozy relationship with both Google and Valve can only mean great things for us PS3 owners. I wonder if they are planning to use Chrome on NGP.

jujubee882294d ago

I get the feeling it will be a Sony built browser with some Google chrome webkit parts.

This way both the NGP and PS3 can have these webkits and have acess to HTML5 and all the cool chrom widgets and other stuff that works on Google chrome.

rockleex2294d ago (Edited 2294d ago )

Millions more use the Web Browser than the 5 customers who actually used Other OS.

Not only that, you had the choice not to update and keep Other OS. And don't try to bring up the fact that institutions use Linux on PS3 to do research, because they obviously chose NOT to update.

Its not anyone else's fault that you realized Linux on the PS3 was not as important as all the other features you get by updating.

ZombieNinjaPanda2294d ago (Edited 2294d ago )

The irony in these posts.

Edit: @Rocklee

That's ignorant saying only 5 people used it.

duplissi2294d ago (Edited 2294d ago )

or maybe he just would like the ps3 browser to not suck..

edit: wtf!!! 2 bubbles!....

darkdoom30002294d ago

Well, I used to care about the browser. but after I got my laptop I didn't care. BUT now I care again, because I realised that I would be able to stream shows without the browser crashing. (don't have netflix or stuff like that here. :( )

Oner2294d ago (Edited 2294d ago )

So a feature that offers a better/enhanced experience for users to have more choice and ease of use (seeing how millions use Chrome) somehow is automatically "spin ANYTHING to make it look good for sony and the PS3"? Talk about a delusional excuse of which cannot be rationalized/reasoned to someone.

The difference is you are so blindly biased AGAINST anything specifically "Sony" that you cannot/will not understand nor want to use something that is adapted for better use because you specifically hate it that it's on a "Sony" device.

That is oh so mature of you. /sarcasm

NateCole2294d ago

You can't access PSN or play PS3 exclusives on the PC.

Options is important. Having the option to use Chrome on the PS3 to surf the net without having to boot up the PC is a great option for PS3 owners.

I know its weird but if the browser didnt freeze so much and they fixed the loading issues I would prefer browsing on ps3 over computer
and a winwar app to unrar or unzip files lol

AKA2294d ago

PS3 is my computer duhhhh.

AKA2294d ago

my PS3 is my computer... duhhhh

badz1492293d ago

err...ok? btw, when is the PSN going up again?


You see, when you troll like this it's so blatantly stupid. I can troll too by saying something like Or I can use YOUR MOM. The difference between your troll is that it's shallow and pedantic. The difference with my troll is despite it being low brow and in many times, in poor taste. It comes off as refreshing and hilarious that I stooped down to your obviously inferior lower level and bested you with an even lower level showing that your idiocy is only bested by an obviously smarter person replicating your level of idiocy.

nix2293d ago

nothing beats the experience of browsing on a big HD tv while sitting lazily on the beanbag/sofa.

this is great news for people like me who don't have comp at home.

File this one under...

It's about Dam time...and I don't mean to come down hard on Sony but dam this is something people have been saying for years... Can you please fix the browser and give us something good.

another thing gamers having been saying for years, can we please get cross-game chat.. I mean come on, if this was any other company we would have gave them an F years ago...

the Ps3 has been out now for like over 5 years and your just now thinking yeah maybe we should get it a good browser..


King_many_layers2293d ago

It's not even been out for 5 years.

Barely over 4 years for Europe.

rockleex2293d ago

Chrome has only been officially out for two years, I think.

I adore google chrome. Its basic stripped down look would be perfect for the ps3.

sinncross2294d ago

I love Chrome on the PS3. I do hope that the NGp launches with a fully working Chrome browser.

TheDivine2294d ago

I would also but this is probably for their tablets and laptops. I dont see sony updating the web browser this late and under contract i assume. Im using the ps3 browser now, it works but is impossible without a keyboard, i hate typing w a controller

Gamer_Z2294d ago (Edited 2294d ago )

Will every one just stop complaining! We are getting chrome (:

the_best_player2294d ago

sony needs to fix psn instead of thinking about there super out dated internet browser

DoomeDx2294d ago (Edited 2294d ago )

Super outdated? lmao do you even use google chrome?
I do, and its the fastest browser there is.
Maybe it feels outdated to you, because it doesnt have toolbars

Rybakov2294d ago

i do use chrome but thats on a real computer

when i had to use the playstation web browser at my friends before the crash i went to a website and it had articles from 2008 and my friend went to the same website on his laptop and it was current.....sooo super outdated is kinda correct
