Why you can't play Hulu on your PS3

Why you can't play Hulu on your PS3 photo



I watch all my television on my computer by hooking it up to my television through an HDMI cable. At this point there just isn't any point to watching TV "live" since everyone can get everything over the web whenever they want, and for most of the shows watching it in Hi-Def is beyond unnecessary. Many others might use their PS3s to watch TV. They may have also used Hulu to do this, but no more.

Yesterday many PS3 owners may have seen this little message when trying to watch video on Hulu: "Unfortunately, this video is not available on your platform." Where did the Hulu go? Engadget decided to find out and, using Matlockery, discovered that "the Hulu TOS was just updated as of June 26, and although we haven't found any PS3-specific passages, changing a browser's user-string to match the console reveals it is definitely being specifically blocked."

Mystery abounds and Hulu isn't responding yet. For now PS3 owners will have to wait and see what happens and maybe try to make their brains turn back into a solid state.

PAX 10: Wakfu interview gets teen girls feeling fantastic

I'd never heard of Wakfu until seconds before this interview. I did know a little about Dofus, Wakfu's prequel, but only because Niero has a Dofus art book on his coffee table. Other than that, I was flying blind on this one...more
