We have some exciting details for PS3 owners now, as rumors are circulating that the PS3 console will be upgraded with a Google Chrome browser in the future. The rumors have even caused Google to issue a swift response to the claims.
The news has surfaced from Dutch site PS3Life.NL as they have discovered that Sony has updated their PS3 browser webkit source files, with some information that relates to the Google Chrome browser, as detailed on NeoGaf forums here.
It’s not much to go on yet, but apparently it’s still enough for Google to issue a quick response to PS3Center. Rather than just issue a standard ‘we do not comment on rumor and speculation’ like Sony would, they decided to tease us further with the following comment:
“I’m afraid we have nothing to announce at this time.”
Could we have stumbled on an announcement which is actually planned for Sony’s press conference at E3 2011? It would be fantastic if the PS3 did get Chrome as it’s default browser, as PS3 users will openly admit that the current browser isn’t really up to standard and could be improved considerably. Let us know your thoughts on the possibility of Chrome landing on the PS3.
How bad do you want Chrome, PS3 users?
