Games In November this year, Sony will launch the PlayStation 3. Apparantly, Sony has high expectations for the Linux-powered device, and Sony even claims it will render the PC useless. "We believe that the PS3 will be the place where our users play games, watch films, browse the Web, and use other [home] computer functions," said Sony exec Phil Harrison. "The PlayStation 3 is a computer. We do not need the PC." Let's see how Sony's Vaio devision feels about this.

You're supposed to buy a 56" Sony WEGA so you can read the web pages adequately ;)

One word.... Opera.

Just about the best choice for the job. Nintendo has already chosen them to be the browser of choice for limited screen space and resolution. Wii (still shuddering about the name...) and the DS are using it.

And I have used it on mobile devices and it works extremely well. Compared to the others, it seems to be the only browser that has been aimed towards this type of display. And it does it well.

(edit) Not that they DON'T want you to buy their new WEGA.... I recognize the sarcasm... using it often myself...
