Ahh Playstation Home it just keeps getting better and better.

Dante1122614d ago

Dang, this is pretty sweet.

Only streaming video from a PS3 into your Home space would be better.

ryhanon2614d ago

Yeah, it would be - don't hold your breath though. That'd be tough for Sony to pull off given copyright complications, not to mention the possibility (reality / inevitability) people would stream porn and no real way to age verify anyone... not a can of worms Sony is going to be eager to open.

Godmars2902614d ago

Yeah, I know it'll never happen for the very reasons you point out, still it would be nice.

Um, thats what mods are for.

It's cool and all but it's only through the crackle service. Why not netflix, youtube etc? Better choices with better selections.

GamerSciz2614d ago

Netflix because it would cost us extra as Netflix has a streaming service and won't just allow PS3 users to access the library and watch for free. Youtube because it's not very movie or show oriented (I think you mean Hulu). Again though Hulu has a streaming service already.

On the other hand Crackle is what Hulu used to be. Free legal streaming service. Perhaps down the line to increase revenue and library size we may have to pay for a larger library.

Truth is, nothing in life is free, at least not forever.

That's pretty cool. I haven't watched Snatch yet. Is this US only? If it is can you use a US account to use the service from the UK?

Peppy la Moca2614d ago

It is U.S only for now, but the devs have said this is the first phase which is U.S only, but it will eventually be available to users everywhere.

Dunno about using a U.S account tho. I tried using the BBC iPlayer on my U.S account and that didn't work so iunno.

Very solid addition to Home btw, no problems while I streamed desperado. If you do pause for longer than like 30 seconds tho it might restart the movie on you. I'm sure this will be fixed soon tho, and also I don't have the personal one, just the one in the cinema so that one might not have the problem.

SNATCH is an amazing film, if you havnt watched it you havnt lived! Its a great British movie and Brad pitt nails the 'Pikey' role incredibly.

fluffydelusions2614d ago

If you watch snatch may as well watch lock, stock, and 2 smoking barrels as well

Peppy la Moca2614d ago

Yup, yup. Both are great movies. Vinnie Jones is a badman in both of those haha. Great humor, great dialogue, and the action's not bad either lol

GanjaMan2614d ago

And then you might as well watch Rock N' Rolla too!
