DailyTech - Well, at least in New Zealand it apparently will, as Sony Computer Entertainment New Zealand head of marketing Warwick Light recently talked about. The PS3 certainly has the potential to integrate such functions if given the necessary add ons, and it would fit in with Sony's idea of the console as an all singing, all dancing media machine. I can imagine even the 80GB HDD version of the console would start to look a little lacking once you started packing video onto it though - jammin *News Editor*

"Although Sony may release different functions according to region, it’s no secret that the PlayStation 3 is an extremely versatile media hub. As of firmware version 1.80, the PlayStation 3 is a Digital Living Networked Alliance (DLNA)-compatible device, allowing it to stream media.Light describes this new feature as “sort of a sharing format between compatible networked devices. It means I can have my laptop, and my PS3 can wirelessly detect movies, or music, or pictures stored on it and stream it to my TV. That content will appear on the PS3's X-media bar.”
