Browsing the Internet on the PS3 is it free?

yes and no. yes its free if you have your own wireless. and no because you have to pay for the internet. or you could steal someones connection (none) . ^_^ T H I E F

The ads for the PS3 tell you you must have internet service. Once you are connected to the internet Sony or the PlayStation network only charge for purchases that you make and must pay for when you make them. Browsing on the internet is free after you have paid your local provider for your internet connection or if you live in a hot zone and can connect with WiFi.
