    if you install a PS3 linux distro you get a web browser :p not sure if it has a stand-alone browser out of the box like the Wii does though.

    Isn't that one of its touted features?

    "The PlayStation 3 uses a version of the NetFront browser by Access Co. as its internal web browser. It is the same browser used in the PSP (Sony-branded NetFront 2.81) with the same interface, menus and virtual keyboard. Its user agent string is cloaked, falsely reporting as Mozilla/5.0 (PLAYSTATION 3; 1.00)"

    Didn't you guys see all those videos...? Anyway, actually the Wii does NOT come with a browser "out of the box", you have to download it from the VC store (it will be free for a limited time, but it's not available yet).

    yeah it has one but apparentlyit has some issues (like the PS3 as a whole). Does anyone else feel like the PS3 is like should be called "PS3.0 Beta version"? Seems like there are a lot of little issues that need to be worked out...:(

    Web browser works on youtube. Flash works and the only site that had a problem when I used it was Facebook. Then again, I go to system --> OS --> other OS and boot Fedora Core 5 and use firefox.

    Any one know when the web browser channel for wii will come out?
