Back in 2009, before video game consoles became the streaming video boxes they are today, it was exciting to have any leanback You Tube experience at all — even a sluggish web app that could only stream pitifully low-res video from within the PS3's aging browser.
While video browsing occurs in a lovely full-screen twin-axis interface and autocomplete search works just as promised, the video quality is sorely lacking still: over our 18Mbps AT&T U-Verse connection, all of the "1080p" videos we played didn't actually seem to display at anything near the crispness of 1080p resolution, and there doesn't seem to be a way to manually tell the app to do so.
The app's also not without its bugs: preview images won't always load properly, the screen resolution went out of whack a few times, and once during testing the app actually crashed our PS3, requiring a reboot.
Software updates can include, improvements, new settings or revisions, as well as security patches.
It’s recommended that you download the latest version of the PS3 operating software system.
It's a free download from the Play Station Store, and while details are scarce for now, it should support HD video, suggest search results as you type them, access video subscriptions from your account, and let you use a connected smartphone as a remote control.
