PS3 No Longer Supporting Hulu?

As of last weekend, Hulu no longer plays in the PS3's Flash-supported browser.

Neither Sony nor Hulu has come forth with an explanation, though the timing is linked to the PS3's latest firmware 2.8 update and it's hard to see the statement "the video is not available on your platform" as anything less than pointed.

But back when the PS3 did have Hulu, how well did it actually work? The few times I tested it out, the slightest misstep led to memory error messages and I'd need to restart. Is Sony improving the Hulu experience? Is Hulu blocking someone like they did Boxee. Or is Microsoft making deals to score Hulu exclusively on the 360?

Time will tell! [CrunchGear and Engadget via Kotaku]
