Grace Chen's Avatar + Posted by Grace Chen on Sep 09, 2011 // Sr. Director, PlayStation Store

Mutants, assassins and chopper riders dominate this week!

This week, New Releases welcomes the summer blockbuster X-Men: First Class. Follow the beginnings of the friendship and rivalry of Professor X and Magneto as they attempt to thwart all-out war in the Cuban Missile Crisis. James McAvoy (Gnomeo and Juliet), Michael Fassbender (Inglorious Basterds), January Jones (Mad Men) and Kevin Bacon (Frost/Nixon) join the large cast of mutants.

Want all of the X-Men movie action? Purchase the X-Men Collector’s Set to receive all four X-Men films – X-Men, X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men-First Class – to own in SD on your PS3 for only $24.99 in the US!

The critically-acclaimed Hanna hits Movies this week, starring Eric Bana (Star Trek) and Cate Blanchett (Robin Hood). Trained as an assassin from an early age by her father in the backwoods of Finland, Hanna is thrown into action when it’s revealed her father is a former CIA agent. She’s put on the run from the greatest espionage outfit in the world. Watch it now before it’s available from Netflix!

Sons of Anarchy drives into TV Shows with its fourth season. Nearly 14 months after the end of Season 3, there is a new mayor in town with a new sheriff to antagonize the Teller-Morrow clan and the motorcycle club. Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman and Katey Sagal all return for the new season. And roll over to the Game Store for the Sons of Anarchy Theme.

To get ready for the release of Fast 5 next month, we’re offering a special discount on the first four films in the franchise each week leading up to the new film hitting our service. This week, it’s the film that started the phenomenon – The Fast & the Furious, available to own for just $9.99 in HD and $6.99 in SD. You’ll find all the titles in the special Fast & Furious collection in Collections & Sales.

Also, Sony, you should really fix the prices of the Video Store, match or beat the lowest prices on the market. I will never purchase or rent anything off of here when I can get them much cheaper else where.

Having the PSN video store (and the gaming side also) available in all regions where PS3 is available is a must. its been really far too long in coming. If those responsible spent half the time on that instead of avoiding the issue with hyperbole non answers there’d be a lot more results showing.

The PSN store needs a huge revamp in both quality & timeliness. Content is very uneven by region both when it comes out compared to other systems and quality varies a lot especially on the video side. And also as many have said price cuts on the video side are sorely needed. The prices are extremely high compared to physical media. Lets face it, once the rights are acquired (which should be minimal for sony owned or distributed tv / movies) the actual distribution costs to sell to customers is minimal compared to physical discs sold in stores. Prices shouldn’t be universally higher than those same stores you’re competing with. This is why both myself and others still buy or rent DVD’s & Blu-rays instead of from the PSN store. Of the 100 people on my friends list I’m the only one who’s even bought any video on the psn store. One friend had a code he won in a subway contest for a psn movie and he couldn’t give it away.

The comments about the psn store week after week often mention problems of various kinds. And the blog entries consistantly get rated very poorly indeed. This should be Telling Grace and others working on the PSN store that there are problems that need to be fixed but aren’t. I doubt anyone cares why this is only that it should change for the better.

i never movies or tv shows on the ps3 no more since they dont stay in the download list. id rather just have it on dvd. and yea im an sd person not an hd. dont see paying more for hd when its only louder and im not into that.

When HD video is the same cost as SD video, you will find me buying movies. The cents cost in bandwidth difference for the data, costing the consumer several dollars will always be a joke. Until then, I’ll just keep using competitor services and give them my money.

I logged on to see if X-men first class was available and saw it was only for SALE in SD format. It is really poor decision making to not offer it for rent and furthermore, not in HD. You’re not getting my money and you’re not encouraging me to stay as a customer by offering me such terrible options.

I might have to get the X-Men Bundle. Only saw one of the 4 movies so it seems like a good deal to me.

There should be a channel under the tv / video section of xmb with the full contents of crackle and the odd teaser episode of shows from the PSN store. No I do not mean commercials only I mean the real thing. It would not only be a stronger selling point for the system itself but for the psn store which needs all the help it can get.
