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 Fingers2993d ago

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

Skerj2993d ago

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

BlackCountryBob2993d 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.

PLiPhaze2993d ago

BlackCountryBob pretty much nailed it

Mr_Bun2993d ago

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

Tomdc2993d 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_Bun2993d ago

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

Mc Fadge2993d 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

GVON2993d ago
