If the PSN store didn’t have such crappy DRM I would’ve Bought like 5 of those movies :O

Blame movie studios…

@5…I don’t mind the DRM…I just want a way to redownload to the same PSN id on the same machine and a way to change the license to a new machine if I’ve sent one in for service.

DRM is definitely an issue guys, but it’s not just PSN, XBL and itunes DRM also suck a lot of ass, anyways this is a good update and it seems like Paramount is on full force after slacking for awhile, Disney fell behind, but hopefully they’ll start adding their movies soon. 2 things though:

1)New season of VERY, VERY popular TV Shows that are already available in the store have started (Family Guy, American Dad and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), itunes and XBL already got new seasons, PSN should hopefully get on the ball soon.

2)I like browsing movies and TV Shows by Movie Studios/Network, as of now the following movie studios do not have an icon to browse and their movies are not listed under its parent companies:
-New Line
-Hollywood Pictures
-Dimension Films
-Allied Films

Some of them have more than 5 movies, I feel they should be listed with their own icons for easier browsing, but if that’s not feasible at least list their movies under the parent company, i.e. New Line under WB or Miramax under Disney.

Excellent job on the movie store so far, the lineup is very impressive. Just give us a way to get them back if we buy one and then lose it!

tearsofash said:

Eek! Another good anime put up on PSN

Scodo_Thope said:

lakaihigh said:

October 3rd, 7:16 pm

that is a butt load of movies that you guys just added there! I’d buy some but I’m bound to upgrade my HD any day now.

On a side note, the Happening was an alright movie. great story just bad acting.

Hi Grace, I was just wondering will The Happening be available for purchase in HD? Great update, thanks.

Masterofallz said:

October 3rd, 8:44 pm

World Trade Center was a REALLY good movie.
Great job on adding the movies! Im starting to love my PSN store even more!

Happy_man said:

Real nice update, also I have a question.

What ever happen to “Ice Road Truckers”, I saw on an update posted over a month ago saying that you put season 1 on the store, and till this day, I have yet to see it. An update on that would be appreciated, I really want to start buying them.

kurtkbee said:

October 3rd, 9:48 pm

wow, nice update !

There are still a few things that remain lacking and i hope that Sony will fix this soon:

1) Ratings
The ability for people who have watched the movie to rate a movie (out of 5?)

2) Popularity
The ability to filter “within” genre for the popularity (i.e. the number of downloads of movies)

3) Previews of movies before downloading
At the moment only very few previews exist for the rather small library of movies posted on PSN

4) Freestuff
A section for free movie downloads (small indy or short films) as this would entice people to use the store

5) 3rd party rating/info Database
Integration with a movie review site (like to immediately see if a movie got good reviews before i download (could be in the movie details/info section)

6) Movie metadata info
“Every” film should have info/details about the movie (genre,year,actor,synopsis).

Nice to see “Meet the Spartans” is off the list ;)

MeanMrMustard said:

October 3rd, 10:11 pm

So I had bought like three movies. All the Metalocalypse episodes you had up, some of Chuck, and a few Universe ones too. Then my PS3 broke. Sent it in to get fixed, had to re-format my harddrive, no problem. But wait, I can’t re-download the shows that I bought? Well, I’ll never buy another thing from the PSN. Sorry.

kh3khalid said:

October 3rd, 10:52 pm

Why only the USA Store gets the movies ? why can’t we buy it also .? this is unfair ..

MajorZ3R077 said:

October 3rd, 10:59 pm

You forgot to add Fight Club to the list of movies you added for the week.

saintfighteraqua said:

October 3rd, 11:07 pm

You went wild this time! Awesome update….now if you’ll start selling hdd’s at Game Stop so we can upgrade our systems without any hassle.

BIG-SLUG said:

October 3rd, 11:48 pm

Too bad I just bought Tombstone on DVD……I couldn’t wait for bluray

AranhaHunter said:

October 4th, 1:09 am

@23 MeanMrMustard

That sucks, I feel sorry for you, yeah the DRM for the movies is ridiculous, for the games is a little more fair.

hijaker77 said:

October 4th, 3:50 am

@23….. OUCH!

I would rather purchase these movies on DVD…. as for downloading and storing them on HDD which I don’t like, especially with DRM.

I haven’t purchased any blu-ray titles yet. DVDs are good and cheap ;)

firehahahahahaha said:

October 4th, 4:32 am

Awesome update guys. I hate downloading movies and watching them, and I’d much rather just buy it, but after seeing some of theese awesome movies, and with the PSN cards out, I might just get a few :)

Natiej85 said:

October 4th, 5:35 am

The collection is all over the place and I’m loving it. Just keep hopin for newer Studios and Networks to pop up. But I like where it’s going.

HAAS599 said:

October 4th, 6:00 am

Great update!!! Keep it coming

Also, please allow ALL movies & TV shows to be rented.

Nitrowolf2 said:

BurningChimaera said:

October 4th, 7:08 am

Is there any progress being made bringing the movie store to Canada?

harlemzkid said:

October 4th, 8:06 am

so now when we buy we finally get to keep what ever we buy from the video store?

Methtical07 said:

October 4th, 9:11 am

I Think you should put in Pink Floyd The Wall Movie

cell989 said:

October 4th, 9:53 am

the only reason I never buy PSN movies, is for the fact that they dont even have subtitles. Its late 2008 and digital downloads still dont have subtitles.

BULL3TPR00F said:

October 4th, 11:16 am

we need this in Canada….

any plans?

manual alphabet said:

October 4th, 11:27 am

Assassination of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford please

FritoZ said:

October 4th, 11:30 am

well, even though i’m still hating on the DRM issues and prices, i gotta say the content is coming along nicely..hopefully SOMEONE will realize they could be making waaaay more money if they just acknowledged the current pricing/rental policy is flawed..


PS Little Big Planet Beta Members!
check out “Midnight in the Gnome Garden” by FritoZ!

The only way I could ever do this is if I canceled netflix. If you could offer 19.99 3 movies @ a time that would get me.
If you follow that plan you can make proven money, and without the shipping you could clean-up. PSN should compete with gamefly also.


cb_32 said:

October 4th, 12:12 pm

they should bring this to canada

MeanMrMustard said:

October 4th, 3:34 pm

@ 32 & 33: Thanks for the sympathy, too bad Sony doesn’t feel so bad about me losing $40.00 worth of videos because I can’t re-download them. Thanks Sony.

dmorris1129 said:

October 4th, 4:34 pm

great update. if possible add preview option to all movies and tv shows

sudeeps3 said:

October 5th, 4:07 am

When will we people from UAE be able to download movies from PlayStation Store? :-(

kspraydad said:

October 5th, 11:40 am


Let me see it IN WRITING that 4 re-downloads of Purchased Movies are part of your purchase agreement…it ISN’T.

SONY’s EULA on the MOVIES specifies ONE download ever and only. IF they do authorize a second download of the bought movie they are under no OBLIGATION to do so.

Until they put it into writing that I can move my licence easily and in perpertuity I can not fathom ANYONE buying content.

Someone earlier brought up iTunes…iTunes allows you to archive to disc.

Someone broght up Xbox…I bought PS because I want and expect MORE than the Xbox experience.
