I’m just wondering if you guys will ever add 90210 to the PS Store. Because that and Gossip Girl are the only two shows now on TV that I watch and I’m just wondering if you are EVER going to put it on the PS Store.

Thanks!

How come every post about video updates gets ratings like 3.2/5?

Are people still upset that their games console is being used for something other than games?

The DRM on movies and tv shows is almost as bad as Grace Chen’s customer service skills (or lack thereof). Almost. Fix that and give us the ability to buy and gift whole tv seasons and options for subtitles and I would consider buying some stuff.

Got Karate Kid on Blu-ray on Wednesday. Next to Avatar, that is the best looking picture quality I have ever seen on any Blu-ray disc.

I see the store updated to add episode two of the tenth season of Smallville. Where is episode one from the tenth season (Lazarus)?? Any reason why it is still not on the store two weeks after airdate? Thanks.

I won’t be buying anything from the video side of the store or aany part of psn at all form now on. Not after what I’ve discovered happening to a number of people this week. I’ve had 4 people I know so far who have spent in excess of $500 on psn, every one of them between $550 and $600 in reality. What happened is all of them received bans of unknown length for unspsecified reasons. All 5 have not been contacted by SCEA by email as to why this has happened nore has SCEA bothered to reply to their inquiries. 3 of the 5 have called only the 1st recieved any answer which was more of a non-answer. They were told in no uncertain terms they were not allowed to know why they cant log into to psn or for what reason only that they must make another account and re-purchase everything if they want to use what they paid for before sony deems it allowable for them to log in. The other 2 were immediately hung up on when they stated who they were and their login ID.

Something very dispicable is going on here, and more than likely highly illegal to boot.

Correction to my previous comment, its 4 not 5 people that I know of so far. Still no explanation from any sony reps. And unless there is legal action is more average chance.

When are we going to see 3D content on the PlayStation Store? Has there been anything announced yet? Anything you guys can talk about? I would be VERY interested in seeing 3D movie trailers for upcoming theatrical 3D movies, and I would pay cash money to be able to rent and/or purchase 3D movies or TV content!
