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 ^_^

Final_Rpg5721d ago

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?

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.

is this for real?

if so it would be awesome to browse flash sites on the PS3.

shine13965722d ago

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.

smeg0rz5721d ago

This also means sites like gametrailers.com will be working!

faster19745721d ago (Edited 5721d ago )

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.

Sashby1235722d ago

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!!!

VP of Troll Corp5721d ago

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!

mikeslemonade5722d ago

Cool now I can troll on my PS3.
