Default PS3 has to have Anti-virus software now?

Quote:
Our good friends at Trend Micro have been a leader in Anti-Virus services for quite some time, and now they offer there services for the Playstation 3 web browser.

It seems that with the latest update of firmware 2.70, Trend Micro is offering a trial service for the Playstation 3 web browser in two varieties.

The first of which is a web filter, which will help you filter out adult content and spam to keep your children safe on the web. The filter will remove images and search results of innappropriate matter as well as block known websites that contain adult content and illegal matter.

The second is a privacy lock, that helps protect your personal data such as email addresses, passwords and credit card information from falling into the wrong hands. The filter also eliminates most spoof sites of your favorite web destinations, like Paypal knockoffs and Ebay shams.

While security on the Playstation 3 has never been an issue, it is nice to know that a company is stepping up to offer services to the unique platform, providing an added peace of mind to an ever-growing market.

While Trend Micro originally added this feature in 2007 with firmware 2.0, it is now readily available through the browser menu, for fast and easy access.

How will this affect game performace? (Note: this is a question and not smackdown that's why it's posted here. Next question, is this because of the web brower feature, if so; I'm glad the 360 doesn't have this feature!)

Gladly close didn't know!
