PlayStation Network Video Content Update

Grace Chen's Avatar + Posted by Grace Chen on Aug 05, 2011 // Sr. Director, PlayStation Store

We’ve got plenty of great content for a relaxing summer weekend!

The animated blockbuster Rio hits New Releases this week, featuring the voice talents of Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Anne Hathaway (Alice in Wonderland), George Lopez (The Smurfs) and Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords). The film follows two macaws who must escape through the skies of Rio de Janeiro from a diabolical cockatoo attempting to help smuggle them out of the country.

Top Downloads features today’s hottest videos being sold on the store, including Rango, Limitless and Arthur on the movies side, plus Breaking Bad, Alphas and the digital exclusive Mortal Kombat: Legacy on the television side.

The Movies section brings you the compelling true story of Bethany Hamilton, an avid surfer whose life is changed forever after a shark attack leaves her without her left arm, in Soul Surfer. Determined to continue her passion, Hamilton finds new ways to touch the lives of others through surfing. AnnaSophia Robb (Race to Witch Mountain) stars in a cast joined by Helen Hunt (Castaway), Dennis Quaid (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) and Carrie Underwood (American Idol). Plus, it’s available at a hot low introductory price!

The latest adaptation of Charlotte Brontë’s literary masterpiece Jane Eyre is available in Rent Now before it’s released on DVD or Blu-ray. The classic novel’s Gothic tones are in full effect in this version featuring Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland), Michael Fassebender (X-Men: First Class) and Judi Dench (Casino Royale).

In TV Shows, all seven episodes of the hilarious second season of Eastbound & Down are now available. Follow the crazy antics of Kenny Powers, played by the riotous Danny McBride (Pineapple Express), as he tries to find new meaning to his life in Mexico. The PlayStation Store is the only place on your PlayStation 3 where you can buy great HBO content like this!

Ready to get your fist pump on yet again? The Jersey Shore Sale is in tanned and ready in Collections & Sales to get you geared up and caught up for the premiere of Season 4. Find all the episodes from the past three seasons of insanity available for half off for a limited time.

Speaking of craziness at the shore, our Deal of the Week features some amazing specials with our Summer at the Beach. Great films like Castaway, The Blue Lagoon and The Beach are available and super low prices. Plus, you’ll find discounts on all three seasons of Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County!

And don’t forget to head over to the Games Store for a shark-tacular good time and get the amazing Shark Week Dynamic Theme from Discovery to commemorate this week’s jaw-chomping action!

Is it just me or does the overall content of the store & the blog exhibiting the summer doldrums? Is the gaming industry like Europe, taking all of August on holiday?

It’s not just you and it’s not just games. Even congress is a no show in Aug. All the adults must be taking a break with all the kids going back to school.

LOL
