New PS3 Portal Beta


Hello gamers, I have come across some interesting news regarding the PS3. Late last night I fired up my PS3  to use the browser (I wanted to look something up but my phone and laptop were both in another room), and right away this screen caught my attention. (On the right)

So I clicked on it and it asked me to fill out a survey in regards to how often I use the web browser on the PS3 (which I do use regularly). The survey itself wasn’t really long, about 5 or 6 questions later I was staring at what appears to be a new portal for the PS3.

The icons at the top, from left to right are: Home, Games, Plus (PlayStation Plus), Movies, Youtube, Facebook & Twitter, PlayStation Network, Accessories, and Blog.

The layout so far seems pretty convenient and more appealing cosmetically. Clicking on Facebook & Twitter opens up the screen below. Facebook and Twitter are juxtaposed right next to each other, which I also think is quite neat as it would make it easier to keep track of both.

Clicking on Blog (pictured below) takes you to a very nice layout for the PlayStation Blog.

Clicking on Learn More for a game or any other links, opens up another web page to  the official site of the  U.S PlayStation Blog. Switching back to the portal screen from there is just a matter of pressing the L1 button on your controller.

Clicking on any links from the Blog on the portal will bring you to the PlayStation Blog

There you have it folks.  Please keep in mind that this is a Beta and not the final product. Meaning that some things will get changed, or removed entirely.  But one should hope that once they have it all ironed out, that they’ll eventually have something similar on the PS Vita.

    Thanks , I've recently been searching for info about this topic for a while and yours is the greatest I've discovered till now. But, what concerning the bottom line? Are you sure concerning the supply?|What i do not understood is actually how you are not actually a lot more well-preferred than you may be right now. You are very intelligent. [Reply]

      Thanks for the comment Roger, but keep in mind that looks can be deceiving. I find that things a slow to load up, but I understand that this is not the final product. And although I won't be using all the features on hand, this portal seems to be a step in the right direction. If you have a PS3, load it up and see for yourself. [Reply]
