Wonderwallweb Writes: Sony Computer Entertainment Europe have today announced a list of the blockbuster hit films that will be available on the PlayStation Network Video Delivery Service before Christmas.
Sony has a huge advantage in the this feature as they own studios and have a huge impact on the movie industry. i wanna see all of james bond, spiderman and terminator movies they are big hits and should help the store to get a great start.
In theory you mean. Sony isn't as unified as you think and as much as I wish...
Guess it's official!! Canada will be the only ones without a PSN video store. F*%# the CRTC!
Only thing I'm against is this limitation thing that sony insists to do in Europe. Why release it in only 4 countries? Non sense!
Licencing laws is the reason. There are so many countries with different laws, regulations and legislations. VidZone was the same but since it launched it has gone on to be released in even more European countries. It sucks that it has to be that way but unfortunately it is.
Yh it is annoying. If you dont really live in the main EU countries, the only love you get is from yur own country really. Especially if your the only country who speaks the same language. Like sweden, russia etc
There are around 2 dozen (!) countries that speak russian... Most of them do not have it as their national language, but they can speak russian.
Should have read the article... or at least a few more comments!
Icelander here, we don't even have a PSstore... :/ Glad I can still sign up for US and UK accounts.
Finally! Although I dunno if I'll actually bother ever buying or renting a film from it :), but nice to have the option.
I'm kinda the same as you but I think I'll probably end up renting the occasional movie...if I want to buy a movie I'll go pick up the Blu-Ray version.
I agree with you too, and probably not even gonna rent but who knows, its already cool to have that option. Its not a lie to anyone that we can actually get very very good quality movies from the net and stream them to our ps3 with (i.e. PS3 Media Server), but like I read and said, its very cool to have much more options available as possible.
i'm a blu ray and dvd addict so this doesn't interested me but it's is still nice to have that option.
YES SONY YES !! Finally the europeans are getting some respect
Could be worth a punt I guess, usually I just record whatever's on Film 4. That said, my TV is permanently stuck on Dave...
I'm the same. Though film four is a bit crap lately.
Film4 for the win.
lol, has canada still not got it. That is not good.
Australia! Fiji! NZ! There's lots of places Sony THINKS exists but aren't quite sure about. If even the mighty EU struggles to get really noticed by Sony how do other, quiet nations like Canada et al hope to be noticed when they aren't USA or Japan? It's stunning that the can't manage full features from the NA store for Mexico and speaking the same language as the US even odder that Canada gets so criminally overlooked by SCEA. I've been sick and tired of the treatment that we in the UK and EU get from SCEE(who are useless over many, many things with store content being the most annoying-don't start me on the lies and BS over the SF2HDTR delay we had to suffer)nut that isn't to say that SCEA and the other territoyies can't be just as bad or worse to some of the nations in their remits.
yeah...I'd like one in Canada. I dont know why thats so hard to accomplish. for the people who own a 360, they may not get netflix or a cool service like that, but at least they have a video store. this is 1 thing that is annoying me from Sony. Its not important for games, but USA and now Europe..we live just above you!
Blame the regulation, not the company. Personally, I'm a big fan of regulation, but sometimes it has it's bad days. No failing banks or bailouts is its good day!
I don't like the way they keep saying "Before christmas" and not "in November". Seems they probably wont get it out this month. Well done SCEE
carl did u read the article??? The service will allow movie fans to download the latest releases straight to their PlayStation 3 and PSP for viewing at home or on the go from this November in France, Germany, Spain and the UK with other markets to follow in 2010. from this november? i.e sometime in november i'm glad its finally here as i like watching films but its taken too long for europe to get it imo, obviously even worse for other countries who wont get it till 2010
1. I'll believe it when I see it [SCEE=Sketchy at best] 2. it's been too long in coming 3. most users will only probably gonna rent 4. UK will be fine .. not so sure about the rest of EU 5. TeeVee shows please SCEE [see point 1]
Nice line up! Can't wait for it!
why don't i have a video store in my psn, do i need an udate?
What country are you in? The video store hasn't launched in Europe or any of the PAL region yet, it's really only in the United States at the moment.
why not just get it on blu-ray....... waiting for download movies/shows is so last gen ZUNE HD instant play once you buy. (wondering how long it'll take for sony to jump in)thats where it is at even netflix streams movies they know waiting and DL is last gen also.
the dvd9. Oh no i didn't! Whats ur point? You have no actually conclusion to your argument. + how do u know there won't be streaming? Silly man
i now i haven't watched a dvd is so long. lol games with dvd work fine. pc and 360. 4 disc i dont care itll take less time to swap all 4 disc then the time it takes a ps3 game to install and then update. dvd does just fine my friend
You say streaming is in with netflix and such.. yet you fail to realize that the PS3 has been streaming stuff since it's media server was launched in a very old firmware update. not only but the PS video store allows you to stream the movie or TV show's as soon as you start downloading it. so Sony doesn't need to jump in. especially when Netflix will be on the PS3 without the $50 subscription required for usage on XBL...
