I was just wondering because it seems like both the compatition has opted for it. I was just curious as to your alls thoughts on the likelihood of this being included. I'm referring to #60 straight out of the box mind you, and NOT through a PC with Media Center.
Well Personaly I don't really care . You would need at least a keyboard to make it usefull . I can't stand typing in web sites or replying to posts using a controller. Even the pointing of the wii remote will be much slower than keyboard. Though it might be easier to use a wii + keyboard to surf as the wand will minic the mouse much better than a controller and can be used with one hand so you don't have to keep switching off between the controller / keyboard
The other problem is it introduces more ways for viruses and bugs to get onto the hardware .
If you have a browser will you have cookies ? flash ? active x ? all the other crap ? It will lead to pop ups , viruses , worms and other crap .
Personaly I think computers are at an installed base where if someone really wnats to browse the web they will just head to the computer .
Its something that could happen but its still not something I will use.

i think they should do it. it would be cool. and it would help them with their whole aproach on bringing the pc over to the family room tv and taking over. there is a way to have it without all the pop ups and whatnot because on the GC PSO there was a web browser you could access if you were smart and there weren't any problems. and with the HDD for the 360 it would make things better. much more like a pc.
i think it should happen. i'm sort of hoping so. because i don't want to have to buy a new laptop or something.
i represent the uninformed consumer.
[/url]I'm trying to become more than what was predicted of me.
only if your operating system is windows......the only real problem linux browsers have are:It will lead to pop ups , viruses, worms and other crap.(like spy-ware)
the occasional memory leak, a few pop-ups here and there, and non-compatibility with Frontpage(and other window specific sites). Worms are an issue, but not as easily deployed underthe UX platform.
Once an os gets enough users hackers will start to target it and spy ware companys will start to target it .
Linux right now has what 2-3% of the home market ? If ps3 has the same installed base as the ps2 , thats another 100m units world wide. I wonder how many little hackers would like to get credit as the first to make a worm for the ps3 ?
like I said: Worms are an issue, but not as easily deployed underthe UX platform.
but you nelect to mention how much of the server market is UX - its primarily unix/linux
nope, just regular users - the only real threat woudl be browsing the web as root, cause even if a regular user was browsing and got "hacked" the hacker woudl still need to gain root privilages to do any real damage(which is NOT the case for windows). You also don't realize that servers are on all the time(for the most part) what percentage of the PC market keeps their machien on 24/7 on the internet 24/7. Servers are much bigger target, but they have still yet to exploit UX in the same manner as Windows(and UX has been around WAY longer). But thats not really the point is it? Besides windows proffessionals use windows update just liek regular users......and you'd be surprised at how many corporations are behind on pathcing ALL their systems(end users only have one to patch).
It is a definite risk no two ways about it. And the PS3 is/will be a target for viruses in the future. Although, one would think that Sony has thought out this aspect of their OS.
You'd be surprised at how vunarable the ps3 will be and I bet 2 years after launch we will see dangrous problems come up through the browser .
The same with wii
