Idk if people realize this, but premium members should still be able to use CR through the PS3 Internet Browser. The only thing preventing it for non premium members was the ads. Still will make things 10 times easier though. May even start to use CR again. It's been a few years, it feels.


PS3 Internet browser? lol I'm guessing you never tried loading a 1080p video on it. When I comes to streaming video, the PS3 browser is absolute garbage. It doesn't even play youtube videos higher than 240p.


Even before I got a premium membership I used the PS3 internet browser. It worked fine. Problem was sometimes the ads (JUST THE ADS!) would freeze up the PS3 and I'd have to get up and go over and reset it and then start all over again. That's the main reason I got a premium membership. If it wasn't for the ads locking up, I'd still be watching them and shows a week late.

Crunchyroll plays MUCH better than YouTube in the PS3 browser. YouTube videos on the PS3 are Absolute Garbage with a capital A-G. I don't know why they play like such crap. It's not fair to compare the two. Crunchyroll on SD mode is miles clearer than YT vids.

I still use the PS3 browser for CR full time (well until this new app comes out - I'm checking the PSStore every day). At 480P it plays decently (slow to react) but 720P and up yeah forget it.

wow this is very good news. i just got hulu + since i have netflix and dunno, i felt like i needed more anime so i got hulu+, i'm currently in the trial. can't wait for Crunchyroll to be on Ps3, when that happens i'll cancel my Hulu+ sub since crunchyroll will have 100% anime from what i've heard. its time to make use of this account i created 3 years ago but never used LOL....i'm serious.... made an account but never used it... hope to see it soon. but in the meantime i guess hulu+/netflix will suffice for now.

Great news and long awaited, I just hope there's an Xbox app on the way too. In my experience the PS3's crusty old 802.11g wi-fi struggles to stream anything reliably, especially HD, but the Xbox's 802.11n does a much better job.

Also I'll say that I hope this will be available worldwide at launch. If there is some sort of idiotic US only type restriction you'll lose me forever, and my patience is already stretched to breaking point waiting for a CR Xbox app.

From the news article here on Crunchyroll:

Availability of the PlayStation 3 application will start off in the U.S. and Canada, and Crunchyroll will offer a 30-day free trial for users who download the app from PlayStation Network.

Crunchyroll only says Summer, but on the playstation blog they they say they are aiming for a fall release (though they did hint at it being soon).

So from the sounds of things, no one is sure when the app will be up

Thanks very much. Technically Summer ends in September so maybe they are both aiming at that month.. LOL Thanks for the update.

Seriously? Wow, that's truly pathetic.

And anime companies wonder why piracy is so rampant...

Does anyone know the date when it launches on the PS3? Also i think it's great that something is coming out that the xbox doesn't have since it gets DLC early and it's supposed to have better media choices.
