Run Opera on the PS3

March 31, 2007

playstation-logo.jpgStarting with Opera 9.2 (currently in beta), you will be able to use the Opera browser on the PlayStation 3 (PS3), provided that you first install Linux.

Opera isn’t making this browser specifically for the PS3. The availability of Opera for the PS3 comes as a result of Opera 9.2 also being available on PPC-Linux, which means that if you install Linux on the PS3, you can then install Opera and browse the web.

Opera, of course, powers the Nintendo Wii browser. The Wii browser, which is currently available as a beta trial, is scheduled for its official release sometime in April.

    “Browser the web?” 😛

    I really hope Sony doesn’t go after all the homebrew stuff to put Linux on the PS3, even if I don’t get one. (I’d get a Wii of course.)

    Ryan, oops… thanks for the correction.

    My primary reason for installing Linux on my PS3, is because the build in browser (Netfront) is very basic. Having the ability to boot Linux on the PS3, and use Opera is a bonus.

    However, I really hope Sony swallow their pride, and come and talk to Opera about swapping the built in browser to opera. They know it makes sense, we know it makes sense.. Sony being Sony however, it’s unlikely to happen… As much as I think the PS3 is by far the best console of this generation, Kudos has to go to Nintendo for going this route with the browser…

    Now if I were to ever buy a PS3, Linux would be running on it within the first day… Of course, Opera would wind up on there as well… 😉
