Shinji just a suggestion (not even sure if you read responses to your posts), but when updates to the PS3 come out can you notify us via CR mail or something? You have to know which accounts actually connected using the PS3 so it shouldn't be hard to notify us. Personally I cannot wait for the player to be awesome. But as it stands now, it's most certainly not awesome.

No it no longer crashes the PS3 randomly (it never actually did that to me, but evidently lots of folks were having issues with that) but the dropping several seconds of video whilst continuing to play the audio and then snapping into place for a minute or two makes trying to watch shows an exercise in frustration.

why don't you buy a japanese console to watch japanese shows...


I own both Xbox and PS3, and the Xbox has better functionality. And why would you need a Japanese console to watch anime? That's awfully narrow-minded of you...


you own a ps3 ?
then why are you complaining in the first place?

netflix runs better on ps3 so i'm not sure what you're talking about when you say "better functionality" when it comes to media streaming. you also don't have to pay for Xboxlive on top of your CR subscription, which make it the obvious better choice...

And to top it all. CR likes the PS3 better (quoted from IGN interview in a podcast) and they did not speak about any other console for now. (other than vita)

Super excited, I've been waiting for this for a long time! I'm in the age I don't see the point in watching things on a computer anymore and have been spoiled by netflix and other streaming apps. But I have truly been holding my breath for crunchy roll to come to ps3 as I can't stand most dubs (cough netflix).

I haven't watched anything yet, since I'm like a kid in a candy store and just keep queuing up series, but I understand there have been glitches and will wait patiently for bugs to be sorted. I believe it can only get better from here

Thought I saw someone complain about it, but I LOVE the streamlined and simple look to it. And I'm ecstatic to find you can add things to a queue.

The only argument PS3 owners ever use is that PSN is free. Well, just ask any Xbox 360 user and they'll tell you: You get what you pay for. XBL is the best online system ever conceived. It has far more to offer, and I get it faster without the 2 months of downtime. Integration with Windows 8 and my Windows Phone is also a huge plus.

Not to mention, if you're into digital downloads, anime is cheaper on the Zune Marketplace than it is on PSN.

Oh, and Netflix is subjectively better on XBL. Even if I have to pay for Gold to use it, it's worth it, because it never stalls out on the menu screen.

I downloaded the app already but it claims that you have to be a premium member to sign in. I don't know if that's right but if so...I don't like it at all whatsoever. I can't even use the search engine to look up my fav animes. Might as well go to the internet in my ps3 and go to crunchyroll than rather using the app.

Hi everyone,

Great news! We just launched our app on PS3™. The app is available for free download. Premium members can login with their existing account to access all the benefits, including streaming the latest episodes (no ads of course!), accessing the queue, searching for shows, and more.

If you don't have a Premium membership, you can still download the app for free and watch the first episode of every simulcast show to try it out. You can also signup for a free trial directly on the PS3. There is currently a special 30-day free trial offer if you sign up directly on PS3™.

Currently the Crunchyroll PS3 app is available in the US and Canada PlayStation Network. We are working on bringing it to other countries. We are also planning on rolling out 720p and 1080p on PS3™ later this year, so stay tuned.

Now go turn on your PS3, download the Crunchyroll app, and give it a good rating -_-!

~Shinji

P.S. Since this is the first release, there are some known issues and we are actively working on them.

[Update on Aug 8th] We just released a patch and the performance should be much better. If you still experience technical issue, please post your comment on the PS3 help forum. Enjoy watching more shows :)



Please go to the PlayStation Store to download the app:

From the first message in this topic:

I expect at this point, they are more concerned with getting the problems resolved.

I spend all days at work listening to every gaming podcast on theplanet so having this discussion with someone as uneducated as you would be a waste of time...


You should try going outside...
