I want to know some of the things PS3s can do before I buy one. Does PS3 support flash player? Can you stream youtube? Can you stream Hulu?

it has a flash player on the browser you can stream youtube on the browser and PS3 has a Hulu App you can use on the system as well as a netflix app if you have a hulu or netflix account.

You can stream youtube on the browser. Never tried Hulu, but I have not had many video issues on the browser, though the browser itself sucks. I think it supports a low grade version of flash.

For extras, the system is region free which is something that is great for importers, be it games released only in EU, JP, or NA. Obviously, the bluray, the controllers recharge through the system, meaning no batteries. XMB is neat and simple.

Is the hulu app the same as hulu on the computer?

Why would anyone buy a PS3 to play games?




Oh! That reminds me. You can cure cancer with a PS3.
