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). (MUBI, PS3)

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.

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.
mushroomwig  +   1699d 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

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

Kotaku: You know, I watch more movies on my PS3 than I play games.

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.

of course! your hands are too busy stroking MS's you know what...

Not sure why everyone is taking his comment as an insult unless you know his intent was to trash the PS3.

I watch more movies on my 360 than play games. I watch something on Zune, Netflix, or ESPN every day. I don't play games every day.

Considering the PS3 has sold millions of units for being one of the best Blu-ray players, why is it surprising many watch more movies than play games?

Both consoles are multi-media devices and stream from the Internet and PCs quite well. In fact, the PS3 streams Windows 7 Media Center TV recordings natively while the Xbox cannot.

The free crap movies
didn't convince me,

not "one" in english

Oh no, films in a different language.

I haven't used the service but I assume there's English subs and if you can read then there's no problem. Two of my favorite films are foreign

1. Amelie
2. 9th Company
MorganX  +   1699d ago
Some of the best films I've watche this year have been subbed. Thanks to streaming (Netflix). Never would have watched them on physical media.
fooltheman  +   1699d ago
I actually very excited about foreign movies
Mnemonic-DK  +   1699d ago
If you liked Amelie, you should try watching another of Jean-Pierre Jeunet movies, Delicatessen. http://www.imdb.com/title/t...

It's a dark, surrealistic black comedy that I think is better than Amelie - but that might just be my sense of black humor.

Ive got nothing against subtitles
for 3/4 years i watched standard tv with them on

think ive seen most fighting films with subtitles

for a action junkie like my self the choice was not appealing, and at every turn they are trying to sign you up, one wrong button press and you where signed up, the two times i used the app, both times i went to the ps store after to check my wallet was the same

at 12,99 a month its not a nice price for me, i was thinging more like 9,99, then i thought it would be better at 2.99, at 2.99 for the month i would have checked it out

but when apps have a nasty stealth sign up policy, id never recommend it to any one

"Kotaku: You know, I watch more movies on my PS3 than I play games."

I know right? I use my xbox360 more as a crapper than a door stop. I just remove the grey part on top containing the HDD...well, whatever is in there, and fill up the space in that thing :D
