Nice update, but when can we mexicans get access to the videostore?

I read that they will be out in blockbuster and 7-elven next month, but only in the US? or is it there any chances to see them in Mexico? ’cause add founds to the virtual wallet is a pain (the psn don’t acept my mexican visa).

Is Sony working on setting up HD sound as well as picture for purchases and Rentals?

The prices are good, but without 5.1 + surround sound, it really takes away from what we should be getting for that price.

XBLA content comes with Surround.

+ FritoZ on August 29th, 2008 at 3:23 pm said:

gotta say, the content of the store is improving by leaps and bounds!

Futurama, American Dad, Blade runner, Pee wee’s big adventure…NICE!

now if you guys would just lower the price to rent/buy or extend/loosen the rental policies, you’ll have a winner..

but until then…

so just let us view our rented movies as much as we want in our rental period! or just charge on flat monthly fee and let us view as much as we want as often as we want…unlimited!!!! like, you can only have one/two movie/ies at time, but you can watch em as many times as you want, and when you “return” those, you can immediately download more!!

thanks for listening!

Grace are you guys ever going to sell full season packages on the PSN?

I’d love to grab the entire first Season of Burn Notice all at once for a price of say 18 to 20 dollars.

Animes and other shows as well, these are great for PSP. However considering the number of episodes and price vs DVD you guys need to compete. Not like gas prices are so bad that I can’t make a 10 minute drive to Best Buy and still pay less for SD video.

I have a question for Xam’d. Great show. when the season is over will you guys actually will have buy the episodes?

+ subbed on August 29th, 2008 at 3:42 pm said:

Oh and I fully agree with willacuz. Please add at least 5.1 surrond on downloads. Hell make it an option if you dont care download the smaller stereo only file I dont care.

@16 SuperSonic1305

well actually saskatchewan is mighty peeved, minnetoba is ticked off ay, and quebec is fâché!

sorry, i just like saying “saskatchewan”

no offence meant, it just seemed such a weird and offbeat statement.

i understand you want the video store up north, and i bet they are working on it…

i heard there is a new streaming app for Windows that allows Netflix streamed movies on your PS3…maybe that will help you!

peace

Sadly, I’m never going to use the service. I’m not going to spend money for something that I can’t use on any system I have. DRM is a bad, bad, bad idea. I would use the movie store if I had more control over the content that I purchased.

Any news of this movie, tv store coming to Canada’s PSN anytime soon?

Could you guys offer more anime with Japanese voices and subtitle?

Futurama! Yes! Oh how about making the “video” button on the store more noticeable?

+ SteveW62 on August 29th, 2008 at 4:24 pm said:

Great list. I hope you we can eventually buy tv shows by the entire season. I’d buy Burn Notice, but not until I can get it without buying each individual show.

i want to buy Xam’d: Lost Memories and not just rent it.. also can we keep what we buy?

@23
I hate DRM as much as the next guy, but unfortunately, it’s a fact of life. At least in the movie/tv industry. The music industry is starting to become more open to selling songs without DRM (itunes-plus) or even giving it for free. This is partly because music content is made by individuals or small groups of people, so they have more control over how their music is sold. Movies on the other hand are made by hundreds of people and the content is owned by huge studios, studios who are very paranoid about piracy.

The short story: If Sony tried to sell movies and tv shows on the store without some sort of DRM comparable to what is being used on the other online stores (XBLMP, itunes, amazon unbox, etc.) then it wouldn’t be able to partner with any movie studios to sell their movies. There would be no content on the movie store to choose from. So you see, sony has less control over this than you might think.

BURN NOTICE AND FUTURAMA! Awesome Sony that [DELETED] rules. I just asked for both these last update.


34

+ crystalx3d on August 29th, 2008 at 4:36 pm said:

As of now, the only way I know of to get DRM-free movie content is to either:
Rip from DVD (which is border-line illegal since it involves breaking DVD encryption)
Or to record an atsc video stream of a movie/show (assuming there is no content flag that prevents this) and edit out the commercials. Of course, until Feb 2009, you can record an analog ntsc show but then the quality wouldn’t be very good.

Cool I am going to buy all this right now!, wait a minute, I don’t see the video tab on my PSN!, oh I remembered I am in Canada!!!!
You know what SONY?, I don’t mind getting the video store later than in the States, what really bothers me is your TOTAL SILENCE AND LACK OF AN OFFICIAL RESPOND of when can we expect the video store in Canada, for god’s sake, even Europe and Japan have a time frame…
Good Job SONY!!!!!!

@38

many digital downloads movies doesn’t offer captions but sony need to be different because be honest… isn’t the best video download even on a console (at least the ps3 have a better store layout).

We, deaf people ( I’m just a little, not completely) really wants captions or subtitles.

Will you ever be able to purchase X’amd? I don’t really wanna purchase a one day rental for 3.99 per episode but I will pick it up day one if you have it for purchase. Here’s to hoping Sony picks up more anime shows, keep up the good work!!

To all Canadians (I am one).

1. NO download delivery service has every launched in Canada and the US at the same time. If you wish to have a concept of how long it might take SONY take a look at iTunes.

2. The VAST majority of Canadians are stuck with usage caps of 60GB before they pay even more per GB. A DL Movie store sounds awesome but until we have more ISP competition it is going to be any expensive rental / purchase.

3. Grace…please address SOME questions each week…pages and pages of commentary without even an acknowledgement that you ‘might’ be listening is not good PR.
