Let's Check Out The PS3's Classy New Movie Service

Kotaku: You know, I watch more movies on my PS3 than I play games. So a service like Mubi - which caters specifically to lovers of fine film - is the best thing to happen to my console in a long time.

Mubi launched last week in Europe and Australasia, and since so many of you are not from Europe or Australasia, I've put together this clip walking you through pretty much every aspect of the service (aside from actually watching a movie).

@Conan

Hence the slogan "it only does everything" The PS3 is a premium piece of home entertainment. Not just a games box, although it does have a Stella line up of games including 3 game of the year winners.

I bought my PS3 to perform as an entertainment device, not just a games console, I don't see it as slanderous when comments are made about watching more films than playing games on a PS3, as it's a wonderful media player.

Nope. I actually dont know. How would I? The PS3 is awesome isnt it? It has something for everyone :D

I'm trying Netfilx but movie quality is disappointing. I mean they are DVD quality stuff, but after getting used to BD movies, going to DVD is a serious downgrade.

Imperator2000d ago

I despise Kotaku. They're just... completely unprofessional.

Please don't ever use the name Conan O'Brien. He's funny and smart being a Harvard graduate, you sir are the complete opposite. I don't mind if you use Jay Leno or Jimmy Fallon.

Technically, I also watch more movies than play games on my PS3.

Movies are 1 1/2 to 2 hour long whereas games tend to be 20+ hour events for me. I watch on average about 4 Netflix movies on my PS3 a week but tend to only have time to play one or two games on my PS3 each week, and typically don't finish a game within that week.

So, while it looks like he might be looking like he's saying PS3 doesn't have good games, the honest truth is it's easy to view more movies (not watch more hours of movies than playing hours of games) when it takes a fraction of the time.

Mubi, vidzone, the up and coming LOVEFiLM...all great services. But my broadband? It isn't a fan. BUFFER BUFFER BUFFER renders all these services useless to me. Damn.

mushroomwig2000d ago

I'm in the same situation, I'm on 2mb broadband and I'm stuck with it for a few years until the optical cables are installed in my area. T_T

Close_Second2000d ago

...for NZ PS3 owners however, at $24 p/m plus the cost of broadband its just not a great deal.

Just starting an article out like that, shows you the author is just a lame loser. He could have said it 100 better ways, but of couse another Kotaku author takes the trash road

LMAO... and one reason why that site is utter trash... they are not gamers just a bunch of 360fanbutts.
