152w ago - The BBC iPlayer has been available on Sony's PlayStation 3 console for quite some time, however, according to the BBC's Simon Cross the BBC iPlayer 3 will be coming to the PS3 entertainment system this year.
According to TechRadar, a new version of the catch-up TV service known as the iPlayer 3 will arrive as soon as technical issues with the sign-in process are resolved.
To quote: "Cross also noted that new functionality would be appearing on the application, including a For You section which would consist of shows you may be interested in.
There will also be more social network functionality, although it was unclear whether the Facebook and Twitter integration would make the move to the PS3.
The biggest problem the BBC is trying to overcome is signing into the app and how the BBC is going to implement this.
"We don't know whether to integrate it with the PSN signing in process or do something new," Cross explained."
267w ago - BBC blogger Darren Waters has reported that the bbc's iplayer is now working through an unofficial website on the PS3.
To access it just enter http://www.ps3iplayer.com/ in the PS3's browser to access BBC content.
I haven't tried this myself yet and there seem to be some mixed reports coming through about quality. Either way it seems another cool piece of kit in the PS3's arsenal of weapons in the media centre war.
