Crunchyroll PS3 app gets 720p support

  • Posted October 13th, 2012 at 16:24 EDT by

At the end of July, the anime and Asian drama video streaming site Crunchyroll launched an app for PlayStation 3. While their full catalog, including simulcasts, was available at launch, one of the most requested features was missing: high-definition streaming. When the app was first announced, Crunchyroll stated 720p/1080p support would come later in 2012.

Last night, Crunchyroll at last updated their PS3 app to support 720p streams of shows if available. Previously, the maximum resolution Crunchyroll's programming could stream at was 480p. On their website, shows are able to get up to 1080p resolution, so an eventual update to allow full HD on the PS3 app is possible.

The Crunchyroll PS3 app requires a Premium membership. A 30-day free trial is being offered to PS3 app users. A Crunchyroll app for the PS Vita is in the works as well for release later this year.

Now that the Crunchyroll PS3 app streams in HD, will you be more likely to try it out and subscribe?
