Only is US. thanks sony, as usual we get the shaft.

dude they confirmed it for a fall 2008 release, by the time that happens, you wont be sorry, there would be tons of video content to get there on launch day. not to mention you know they have to localize everything overthere since Europe is more than just one country and more than one language.

Fishy Fingers3061d ago

EU also gets PlayTV first. It's swings and roundabouts.

Skerj3061d ago

Wouldn't blame Sony for this one so much as the MPA.

BlackCountryBob3061d ago

Its not that Europe is getting the PlayTV first, its because Europe uses a common standard of digital aerial based TV which no other region has; the states does not have a common ground yet.

I sure hope there is no-one surprised about this not working in Europe, if you thought it would then you are obviously a little naive. You should instead be thanking your lucky stars (like me) that Sony have demonstrated how easy it is for them to region lock the PSN but have just locked the video store. They could have done the entire store and justified it but they didn't.

I'm happy because I haven't lost out on the US PSN store.

BlackCountryBob pretty much nailed it

Mr_Bun3061d ago

Think Canadians will be getting it in the fall as well? I think I am gettin' screwed!

Tomdc3061d ago

it took microst a year to release their video service in europe after they did in america! a few months is good compared to that!

Mr_Bun3061d ago

Yeah, but there is nothing saying that it is even coming to Canada

Ben10543061d ago

complaining got us in game xmb ofter a year, so if we start now we should have it by Christmas 2009

Mc Fadge3061d ago

Even if you have a US account, it's based of IP address (I assume)

But I'm okay with that, it'll come when it comes <333

GVON3061d ago

I was about to ask that as I can't see it on my American account.
