Re: PS3 online features

Sony has added loads of new online features using network updates, including a fully functional web browser with Flash and RSS support. Sony's PS3 has built-in Wi-Fi that lets you to connect online to any of Sony’s games for free as you don't need to buy network adapter. But you will have to whip out your credit card in case you want to take full advantage of PS3 online features. Building an online device requires a few major differences from an offline box - for one, it's important to be able to update your operating system, so that when you add new services or change features, you can incorporate those into the console's dashboard.
