Variety video games reporter and reviews editor Ben Fritz report's: As promised in my earlier post, I spent the day doing some reporting on Sony's PS3 video download service that's launching this summer. You can get the full story right here on Variety.com.
Turns out Sony is thinking about offering more than the same features as Xbox Live. In addition to standard movie rentals, it's talking to potential partners about allowing users to transfer movie downloads to the PSP. It's also thinking about working with the company's own Blu-ray disc format so that users might be able to transfer a copy off the hi-def DVD onto a PS3 or PSP (similar to the "digital copy" for iPods that some studios are starting to offer on DVDs).
