HI Everyone,

Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassins’ Ball (unrated), The Invention of Lying, and Whiteout are all now available for rent and in HD. Plus, Jack Bauer is back as Season 8 of 24 released this week on the Video Store in HD. Finally, there are two big FREE titles coming to the Store just in time for the weekend. Friday we will have The Deep End, and for Saturday, Caprica — both series premieres, free on the Store for a limited time.

Great update, and thanks for the free shows! I’m looking forward to downloading Caprica tomorrow, and The Bannen Way is pretty cool. I hope we get more stuff from Crackle in future updates.

No Love for Canada. I would like to watch some FREE shows but you don’t like us. Do you? We get all the same shows on tv and the same movies at the video stores so why not a store for us Canadians? Do you think it will be a flop? I don’t. I think it will be one of the best things Sony could do for the ps3. You see in Canada it:

DOESN’T JUST DO EVERYTHING…

+ ShadowPhoenix18 on January 22nd, 2010 at 9:04 am said:

@Masulsa: Go to video, and then it’s like the…7th option or so. but just go to an option that says “Free TV” on a little price tag icon.

@RoecraticA: Some things, not necessarily all free things, have a time limit on them, after which the product expires. All the rentals have it, of course, but it’s not unplausible that some free items would too. The only free item I’ve kept is an episode of Full Metal Alchemist, and it works fine last I watched it. But…that’s likely the issue. Check the File Information using triangle button just to check, though.

@Locke_VI: I’m definitely with you on that. I found Bannen Way online, but didn’t want to sit at my comp watching it. After one episode went to my room and happened to find it on PSN! Score! Great series. And I was so excited for Caprica but I don’t have cable so all the commercials on regular tv really annoyed me! At least I’ll get to see an introduction to the series if not the whole thing. I look forward to that!

@RoecraticA: Either you didn’t copy the license in X:\MLN_ROOT\LICENSE, or you’re playing the video on a PSP that isn’t activated for your PSN video purchases (e.g. someone else’s PSP).

Hey not a bad update at all. Keep bring the lastest TV Shows. However I would like to see some more sports, and hopefully either the NFL or WWE programing coming to the Playstation Store. I’d look forward to that very very soon.

Thanks,

USA’s residents are @$$#*!&$…arrogant losers that believe themselves better than the rest, yet have a 2nd place 1st world nation.

Canada should already have this feature…Sony is just friggin’ lazy and SCEA is more USA than Canada…even though they are supposed to support North America.
For those of you still short on your Geography…that DOES include Canada. The 1st place 1st world nation.

Jealousy should have no place in SCEA…it’s not our fault Canada is better…it just is.

Though a few of our laws are silly (like needing a skill testing question for contests etc.) it’s not difficult to just do it to make us happy…it’s still however, not nearly as silly as allowing residents to wield a gun in the streets but lock up a citizen for 20 years for smoking a plant.

Though I disagree with both of those, I still find it insane to put guns at a lesser priority hahaha WOW! USA rules huh? lmao!

Clearly such evidence shows the possibility that the issue is not ours, but yours.
It’s about time you tools admit it yes?
Then fix this damn issue already!

Nice to see some free videos, a shame it sounds like the DRM on videos hasn’t been fixed yet and that movies are still unavailable to purchase.

+ Locke_VI on January 23rd, 2010 at 11:31 pm said:

@ # 31 stri:
You got some nerve, calling a whole country full of people ‘arrogant losers’ over what just a couple have said. That would be like me calling all Canadians brainless morons, even though your the only brainless moron Canadian that I’ve come across. I mean, I’m sure theres more, but they’re probably all related to you.
I have a lot of Canadian friends, and I hope Canada gets a video store. If anyone wants me to sign a petition, I will. But at the same time, I hope stri doesn’t get the video store.
I actually feel sorry for you, stri. You obviously have a lot of hate and bitterness in your heart. I hope you get the professional help you need to work through your problems.

+ stri on January 24th, 2010 at 10:31 am said:

@ #35 Locke_VI, regarding my post at #31:

Ok then, perhaps I should have clarified…

USA’s residents in this forum, that have been poking fun at Canadians are @$$#*!&$…
Better?

Perhaps I shouldn’t have judged an entire nation for the actions of the few here…but in my defense, I too have many USA friends, and though I like them, even they are arrogant.
It’s been my experience that the majority are all about themselves.
If you don’t believe me…just go to any other country, any one at all, and ask a random stranger of their opinion about the citizens of you GREAT nation.

To be honest, I don’t even care if I have the video store…but many do. I only find it fair that ALL nations be treated equal.
That in itself doesn’t make me bitter…nor does it qualify me for “professional help”.

I don’t think I’m being irrational to simply ask for equality in this world, especially from the “NORTH AMERICAN” nation Canada and the US apparently SHARE!

In the future I’ll try to seem less hateful, however; that would be dependent on the actions of our apparent allies, now wouldn’t it?

You grow-up and I’ll respond accordingly.


38

+ stri on January 24th, 2010 at 10:52 am said:

…and @ #36, DrunkRaba:

If you haven’t figured it out by now,then you really don’t deserve to know.

But I’ll explain anyhow…

It’s not about an ability to obtain these things elsewhere.
It’s principal.
Perhaps not all feel this way(that’s for you Locke_VI),but I certainly do…& would bet that majority agree.

We would love to feel that we’re equal to the others on this globe. Especially from the the one nation we stand beside in all aspects,even through stupid wars and things we really don’t care that much about.
Why do we do this? Because we’re loyal allies. Though I’m sometimes not sure why…

We want to feel as though we’re part of NORTH AMERICA too, which we are geographically. And last time I checked in more ways than that.
Even though we are loyal,for some reason US citizens find it acceptable to poke fun at our expense. We should be a friend,not an enemy,yet it’s not that way at all is it?

We can die with you on the battlefield,yet are unworthy of your kindness in a forum or its benefits…whatever!

SCEA takes care of Canada too…if they refuse to include us,who is it you think we should complain to? No one?!
Think what you want, but that’s BS in any book.

+ Locke_VI on January 24th, 2010 at 8:25 pm said:

@ # 37 stri:
I should grow up?! Am I the one crying and saying ‘I hate you all!’ because something isn’t going my way? No, you are. But when I called you out on it, you changed your tune quick enough. (or at least pretended to.)
I want Vidzone in America. I also want the same great games on our store that they get in Japan. Do I say that I hate Japan and Europe because of this? No.
Do I generalize all the people in Japan and Europe over something so stupid? Why would I? That would be bitter, hateful, and childish.
You even called your own supposed friends arrogant!
stri, one thing you’ll learn when you grow up is that throwing temper tantrums is not the right way to get what you want.
And you have a lot of American friends, huh? Do they know that you think they’re all arrogant losers?? I have a hard time believing that you have any friends at all.
I’ll say it again, get the professional help that you need for your obvious emotional problems! If you don’t, your going to live a very sad life.
