Err, according to what was announced, it’s initially being released in only France, Germany, Spain and the UK with a completely independent set of movies (no TV shows, as yet, though they are promised). http://uk.playstation.com/games-media/news/articles/detail/item229603/PlayStation-Network-Video-Store-coming-to-Europe/?site_locale=en_GB

Good update. now the people from europe can stop complaining.

I will complaining and low rating the video content posts until you give us a Video Store here in CANADA. I mean who wants to trudge through the snow to go rent a movie or buy a tv series? Not me because on average here we get 6-9 feet accumilation in a month(January) and I walk with a cane which makes it all that harder. I called the CRTC and inquired if indeed Sony was able to rent, sell movies tv shows on a private network. They said there was nothing Stopping Sony from opening said service. Now WHAT IS THE “REAL” REASON? Huh got an answer that will satisfy me. ( I was on hold with the crtc for 3 hours so the reply to this should be good.)

oh and for those that dont know, the CRTC stands for Canadian Radio and Telecommunications Commission. They regulate all the media in Canada….

@5 KillerBread,

You are NOT getting access to the US Video Store…you will have your OWN video store.

For instance the UK Store will have 24 hrs ConnieStreet Fests and Benny Hill remakes and the German Store will be nothing but Art House black and white films. (jk)

The Video Store you see on the blog is ONLY for the US…you should direct your queries to the EU blog here: http://uk.playstation.com/ps3/hardware/accessories/detail/item228817/PlayStation%FD%FD%FD-Network-Video-Store/

+ waffman11 on August 21st, 2009 at 6:58 am said:

Shouldn’t the European readers already be reading the EU blog? And please stop complaining, Canada. Yes, we get that you want a video store and all of the other things that the U.S. gets, but enough is enough. I think that Sony gets that by now, and they’re probably working on a Canadian video store. No, I don’t know what’s taking so long, but if the EU is getting a store, yours will probably follow shortly.

+ KazeEternal on August 21st, 2009 at 6:58 am said:

@2
Don’t expect subtitles for anything, just dubs. Here in the US we can’t even get english subs or 5.1+ surround sound in what we download. For a fan of anime this is a must to be able to choose and in the case of hard to hear movies another must especially if sony plans to go long term with this sucker.

5.1 problem tends to urk me as well as it maybe in surround sound, but it is most likely limited to a format that only 5% of us can use. My sound system doesn’t decode AAC which is probably what the audio is and thus gets down sampled.

Basically the PS Video Store is a great rental service, but a horrible long term initiative. Much better to just buy bluray movies and only visit the store when you don’t have free time to run to blockbuster for a movie.

Off topic… but I hope Jeff can pass on the suggestion.

It will be awesome if we can “Follow” other people on the playstation site, a way to actually have some friends on your profile so you can track their Trophies progress, having your friends new trophies shown in an activity stream.

That will be great!

    I can tell you that the latest trophy update on PlayStation.com is far from the end of the road.

    The team has very ambitious plans for PlayStation.com and I think you\’ll be pleased with the ways that they\’ll continue to enhance the user interface and functionality.

+ KSPRAYDAD on August 21st, 2009 at 7:09 am said:

@13….

And most of the ‘whiners’ are only asking to ACKNOWLEDGE whether one is coming to Canada or not. I fail to see ANY strategic reason for not acknowledging whether it is in the works.

After 6 months of politely asking Grace to comment I moved on and am using Xbox360 (I didn’t own one until 6 months of silence from Grace on the topic) and iTunes…money that SONY could have been earning if they are working on a system and just acknowledged such.

@17 Guinnesss

Why not go to the EU blog and read it?

Quote:

PlayStation Store will expand its range of downloadable content when the PlayStation Network video delivery service comes to the UK, France, Germany and Spain this November – the rest of Europe will follow in 2010. Partnerships with illustrious studios such as 20th Century Fox, Disney, Paramount Pictures and many more will ensure a stellar line-up of movies available to buy or rent at launch, on both PS3 and PSP, and in either SD or HD.

well at least there is come progress with the video store going to europe and what not… but there is still canada (not to mention we arnt getting the comic store too)… is it legal issues that it already isnt in canada already? or does sony just not like canada?


24

+ DoctorJJ on August 21st, 2009 at 7:34 am said:

I’m a Canuck and I’d love to see the video store up here too. I wonder if Sony just doesn’t see a big enough market in Canada. It might also be our somewhat lax copyright enforcement and laws and the large studios aren’t letting Sony bring the video store to Canada.


25

+ Knight0011 on August 21st, 2009 at 7:36 am said:

Bring on the Canadian store. Stop shafting us withe every single service.

- NO video store (Prob 2010)
- NO comic store at launch(prob comes in dec 2010)
You guys are showing a very bad image of yourselves in Canada.

europe includes france, in france they speak french, so the movies available are already dubbed in french, which would make them ready for canada as well

sony seems to have a problem with canada and canadians, no comic for psp here, no video store here…

+ Watchmann on August 21st, 2009 at 8:16 am said:

@KSPRAYDAD Xbox360? Get off the dang PS Blog then, Son ;)

Canadians are well within their right to complain about the lack of a Video Store up here. The decision to provide zero comment about the status of the video store in Canada is simply lousy public relations. Ignoring your customers in the hopes they will stop asking questions is never a good idea.


32

+ Pinhead_x on August 21st, 2009 at 8:17 am said:

Well, the post should be corrected them.
UK, France, Germany and Spain does not make EUROPE.

“PlayStation Video Store will be launching in UK, France, Germany and Spain this coming November!

That will make things clear and do not raise false hopes, especially, for us, the REST of Europe..

Sony has officially lost all credibility as a serious digital content provider. Too little, too late. Next generation, I will likely assign my money/allegiances to Microsoft, regrettably.
