Sony has announced that the upcoming firmware version for PlayStation 3 will include support for Adobe’s Flash 9 player.

Firmware version 2.50 which should be released in the coming weeks will finally allow users to watch YouTube videos right from the consoles web browser.

This opens up a world of posibility, for things such as streaming HD movies through Flash on the PS3 will now be possible. It’s a great win for PS3 owners.

    The present flash player (flash 7) works with YouTube…but little else. This update is desperately needed.

    Strange – I had problems getting my PS3 to work with YouTube video’s. I’ve had problems with most Flash things, telling me that I was using too old a version.

    One of the worst offenders I see is Facebook, who unless you have THE LATEST Flash version, you can’t watch any video’s people post.
