PS3 Pandora app

66 replies 52618 views Edited Dec 19, 2010

This would be lovely on the ps3. We can access it on the web browser but im far too lazy for that now that ps3 brings everything to me.

"ps3 only does everything" but pandora.

Anyone hear any plans of this?

Bookmarking Pandora on the web browser seems to be the next best thing that having an app.

I would think if Sony commssioned an app for Pandora or some other service, it would probably be associated with the PlayStation Plus service because people would expect that the app would provide unlimited music instead of the limited amount that you get with a free account...

I would love to see a dedicated Pandora app.  In fact, it would be great if Sony created something like Roku's Channel Store and gave developers a chance to create a multitude of media related applications.  The PS3 is already a pretty robust media hub with blu-ray playback, Netflix, Vudu, Hulu Plus, etc.  A dedicated app like Pandora would only add to that.

They probably haven't made one because there's a little something called the RIAA who would want a piece of that action.

The Pandora App is currently available in all kinds of new TVs and Blu-Ray players. I doubt that it has anything to do with the RIAA why there isn't one in the PS3. I think it is because Sony just hasn't prioritized it yet.

Putting that aside, why do we need to listen to music on a PS3? I may be dating myself here, but there was a time when you used to have a dedicated stereo system to listen to your music, and wen through great lengths and expense to get the best sound. Now it seems that a lot of you are content to listen to music on tiny, tin can speakers or little ear bud headphones, from compressed mp3 files. I really think that using your PS3 to play music is a metaphor (I know that gamers don't understand metaphors, but work with me here people) for video games supplanting music as the driving force behind the youth culture.

I don't think it's unsafe to say that music, and especially rock n' roll, doesn't have the same reverence that it once did.

In my opinion, Sony should try to obtain rights to have a pandora account. Sony advertises the PS3 as a Blu Ray player that does everything, but every Blu Ray player has a pandora app on it now. Im just saying a pandora app would be nice, cause maybe when im walking around my house i want to hear my music on my surround system.
