113w ago - PlayStation Network Director of Marketing Brandon Stander has shared an NHL PS3 GameCenter App guided video tour video today and announced that fans can stream live hockey games on the PS3 in HD!
To quote: The 2011-12 hockey season drops the puck on the ice, and the PS3, today!
That's right, the PS3 is still the only gaming console to stream live out-of-market hockey games in HD, and this season, in addition to enhanced streaming capabilities, users in the United States and Canada can now download the new NHL GameCenter application for free.
That means users who enjoy free access to PlayStation Network and do not have a subscription to NHL GameCenter LIVE can still have access to a wide range of NHL content through the NHL GameCenter application, including features such as post-game highlights, team schedules, standings, player stats and full NHL scoreboard.
Of course, if you are already an NHL GameCenter LIVE subscriber, you can also stream every 2011-12 regular season game in High Definition on the PS3 - local blackout restrictions do apply.
Just like last season, NHL GameCenter LIVE allows subscribers to watch full-length and condensed replays of...

To quote: With the E3 Expo just around the corner, the PlayStation Home team is happy to announce that you'll be able to be part of the convention excitement – right from your PS3!
For the first time ever, PlayStation Home will host a live public video stream of the Sony E3 press conference on Monday, June 6 at 5pm Pacific Time in a special screening room. You can watch SCEA President and CEO Jack Tretton reveal all of the big E3 announcements and watch never-before-seen footage of tons of upcoming PS3 and NGP titles.
We're also happy to confirm that the PlayStation Home E3 Virtual Booth is making a triumphant return! The virtual booth was visited by a lot of people last year (five times more people than physically attended E3 2010!), making it huge success for us and hopefully for you as well.
If you visited the booth last year, you'll remember that we enabled you to explore a virtual recreation of PlayStation's E3 booth. Expect the same this year, with a few new surprises – including a 3D-rendered NGP to inspect from every angle.
153w ago - Today trevorx7 at PS3iSO has posted news of PlayOn PS3 Media Server, which can stream Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Amazon VOD and more directly to your PlayStation 3 console from a Windows PC giving you access to a wide range of Internet content on your TV... and while it may not be new for everyone it is a first for me so I am sharing it here.
That is a link to the latest trial version, as the patched older version does not work so simply reinstall it later to use it again or just change the date on your PC if you wish to use it longer, etc.
To quote: "To enjoy PlayOn, you just need a PC, a home network, and a Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Moxi HD DVR, NETGEAR Digital Entertainer Live, Roku (just added!) or another supported device. That's it. No extra cables or hardware to buy
PlayOn also enables you to stream your personal videos, photos and music from your PC to your home entertainment center. It takes less than 3 minutes to set up – download it and see for yourself.
Because of the increased popularity of online gaming, the PS3 has built-in WiFi that allows you to directly log on to Hulu with the game system’s Web browser. (The PS3...
