Rumor: Sony in Talks with Mozilla on FireFox PS3 Browser

242w ago - Update: According to [Register or Login to view links], Mozilla responded and denied the rumor, to quote: "They replied with the following: Nope - not sure how that rumor got started but it's been keeping us busy all day "

According to a rumor from E-mpire.com (linked above), Sony is in talks with Mozilla over the possibility of porting FireFox over to the PS3.

While this sounds promising, obviously there will be numerous security issues to address if this browser finds its way onto the PS3.

To quote: "We recently received a tip from a source very close to Sony who says that they have been in talks with Mozilla lately about possibly porting Firefox over to the PS3.

That said, our source made sure to point out that they were unsure if any deal had actually been reached at this point, but it is great news none the less considering the complaints Sony has been getting about the lack of reliability with their current built in PS3 web browser.

Throwing Firefox into the mix would give PS3 the ultimate advantage when it came to internet functionality."
 

PTOM Interview: PSN Boss Talks Voice Chat & Firmware Updates

500°
243w ago - During a recent interview with PlayStation: The Official Magazine (PTOM) in the Holiday '09 issue, PSN Director Eric Lempel discusses how Firmware update features are planned and released for the PlayStation 3 and PSP consoles and touches on cross-game voice chat.

To quote: "We go about doing that in a few different ways. We do consumer research in addition to following our roadmap.

We've had a very long roadmap that we've wanted to roll out, and clearly all of them couldn't be rolled out day one when the PS3 launched. So we've been implementing these features as we go along and some of them, and some of them take longer than others."

Lempel continued: "Of course time and manpower always factor in because there aren't limitless resources. And are sometimes key features that must go out in Firmware updates. For example, you saw on September 1, we released a 120GB PS3 and we did a Firmware update, and there were some enhancements in that specifically to bring on the new hardware."

The director of the PlayStation Network further explained: "We absolutely read all the feedback that we see on our blog when we do firmware updates. We have people who look across different forums and different sites. And we also do our own testing - some very extensive testing.."
