After the BBc’s iPlayer arrived on the Nintendo Wii last week, the corporation explained that a similar service hasn’t arrived on PS3 due to Sony attempting to “control the look, the feel and the experience” of the service.
That reasoning wasn’t good enough for one coder, who decided to prove that the PS3 and the BBC iPlayer are easily compatible, so he created PS3iPlayer.com – a working version of the iPlayer compatible with the PS3 web browser. Plug that into your PS3 web browser (it won’t from PC or Mac unfortunately) and you can see a PS3 iPlayer in action.
As the creator, Ixalon, himself said: “It only took a day to produce, so come on BBC – how about implementing this properly?
‘Nuff said really.
