Blogging on the PS3


Joystiq's Kyle Orland has completed a feat comparable to such American precedent setters as Neil Armstrong and George Washington. He is the first blogger on the internet to post from the PS3. That's right, his entire post was written on a PS3 with a USB keyboard and mouse. Still, as Kyle stated, it isn't a perfect way to get some blogging done.

Kyle notes that the PS3's web browser is a lot like the PSP's and after having used it myself, I cannot agree more. The browser does support tab browsing, so having multiple pages up at once is a snap. The browser also supports Flash, which is nice, although we would've liked to have some Java support as well. Still, it's a great feature for the system and works surprisingly well.

1. I wonder if anyone would actually use this as a main browser, would you really ditch your computer for this? Or is it just like "I'm lazy and don't want to go into the next room to check ps3fanboy so I'll just do it on my PS3!"

Or it could be a good pron computer...hmmmmm

2. Matthew, all of that, especially the last one, plus 60gb hardrive = perfect :)

Oh and the fact that some kids have to share a comp, and if someone is on it, the next best thing to use is the PS3 :) I know boatloads of ppl that would appreciate this feature.
