YouTube is in talks to acquire licensing rights to full-length content from Sony Pictures, home of such films as "The International" and "Spider-Man," sources familiar with the negotiations told CNET News.
this would be cool if it happens
And people can just rip them....... Smart move
Wait, you mean people will be able to just download those films from the internet? Oh my! That's definitely going to create a new issue!
like people don't rip pretty much every movie that comes out now. I think its a good move since i can stream youtube content on my PS3 browser. If youtube can bolster a strong movie line-up beyond just sony pictures, i would gladly pay subscription to watch some sweet high quality movies. But till then netflix will have to do
SONY AND GOOGLE ARE GETTING GIGGY WITH EACH OTHER LATELY. I LIKE THAT. MY TWO FAVORITE COMPANIES.
I know that, but you'll get them in about 2 minutes.
I would like to have Jumanji available
That's what I was just thinking. Google seams to be in bed with Sony since a while now. Google-Video (==youtube) + Sony vs. MS + Netflix. Looks like.
i mean who dosnt love youtube?
this is great.I wonder if tha next firmware will have this in so you can upload your gaming videos from your PS3.
They have something similar to that but only like two games support it.
Hawx does that, for example. You can record your game and then upload it directly to youtube from within the game. You'd need an youtube account, though. But it simply allows you to log into your youtube account and upload that video.
I just hope they get international rights for this stuff. Both the PSN store and Live's marketplace are incredibly fragmented when it comes to regional support, which is ridiculous - it's the INTERnet, as in INTERNATIONAL network - it should be available to all.
You obviously haven't been on Youtube recently. Good luck finding music on there if you live in the UK.
People are already getting all the free movies they want with illegal downloading... now, they make it legal AND make money off it via ads I figure. It helps "consumers" not feel all guilty and it helps the companies have a control over the distribution over their movies.
This is great to hear if true. I mean its great for the consumer and also for Sony themselves, as they are probably going to be a Youtube Partner which means they get paid some amount per 1K views or something like that. I can't wait, hopefully there will be HD options. Actually Youtube might wanna fix their HD encoding or whatever as its pretty slow. What i mean is if you watch a youtube HD video their audio and video isn't fully synced and when there are fast moving subjects it gets blurry. I know for sure that its not my hardware as a Q6600 and 9800GT should be extremely sufficient.
