Hi again Grace it’s me (C-h-a-o-s) the guy who constantly ask’s for more downloads available other than just the one. It sure would get people to spend $9.99-14.99.

Kratos10 said:

I say this out of kindness that this weekly update is really angering fellow Canadian Playstation owners who dont have the ability to use this service yet. Is there at least a propsed timeline of when we will get it? Summer?

WhutsGud said:

January 23rd, 4:40 am

Hi Grace.Is Canada still in the plans for video store rollout?

Watchmann said:

January 23rd, 5:09 am

Don’t think those of us in Canada can expect any kind of response at the moment.

Regardless, until they fix the video distribution policy and allow either redownloads or backups, I will not be purchasing any video content what so ever.

crACEy said:

January 23rd, 5:16 am

good movies out this weeek

SithlordDK said:

January 23rd, 5:20 am

I hope this Videostore is coming to Germany sometime… but well its in Europe and Europe does not exist on Sony’s Map :(

Is this Store planned for Europe anyway?

Raacky said:

January 23rd, 5:20 am

i still want to be able to buy the movie “Clue” and “The Ref”!!!

TNTbkNY said:

January 23rd, 5:22 am

im with you watchmann!! Viva La Resistance!!! also the content updates are great, but once we are able to sign up for a MONTHLY service then you can REALLY COMPETE with blockbuster/netflix….maybe ill post a poll about this on the forums. I mean damn even if it was $29.99 a month i’d get it cuz thats only $1 a day!!!

ps this is my first post even though ive followed the blog for over a year lol (i always check through my ps3) ^_^

Enedok said:

January 23rd, 5:34 am

Good, good. Looks nice. I really approve of this list.

So any word on when Europe can join the fun?


January 23rd, 5:39 am

Fix the backup issue.



January 23rd, 5:42 am

Well I have to give you kudos for giving us decent updates every WEEK. Not like singstar =/

Enforcer_X said:

January 23rd, 5:42 am

1080p, DRM Free, and Surround Sound.

Is that to much to ask from a HD media console?

LordDeff07 said:

January 23rd, 5:53 am

Don’t mean to spam… if this can be considerred spam, but i think the blog should put up a selection of features that we want in our next firmware update. The PS blog has quite simply become the voice of the playstation community and does so much to keep us informed, they should do this to help get our wants across.

So i think a poll or something that we can vote on would be nice; the PS3 does so much already, i think it would be speaking a lot of the community and the brand if we have a sysyetm where the users know exactly what they are getting after having voted.

BlueViper said:

January 23rd, 5:56 am

Great update, dont know about the pricing, but if that is ok, I would definitely use this here in Europe!

Zezzler said:

January 23rd, 5:58 am

Ok… it 2009 now, can CANADA have a PSN video store please…

You know CANADA Exists too…

Jeigh said:

January 23rd, 6:16 am

Wait, Canadians have the sentiment of “anger” ? XD I’m just messing with you guys. Hopefully they’ll roll it out soon. Maybe you guys’ll actually use it, ’cause the most I’ve ever done is look at the available titles…

But then again, once it IS out in Canada, won’t the weekly updates be peppered with pricing complaints instead?

Well, anyway hope that works out for you guys.

By the way, Grace, is that supposed to be “The Last King OF Scotland” ? Or is it a hypothetical Scotland? XD

Raacky said:

January 23rd, 6:21 am

why dont you canardians just set up a US account?? Then you can access the videos…

Skullhef said:

January 23rd, 6:25 am

wow 24 in hd is amazing

Dragonchasers said:

January 23rd, 6:41 am

Until the speed of the network is improved, I can’t see buying any video from the store. It currently takes longer to download a title than it does to watch it. Two friends at work have PS3s and have the same issue so it isn’t just my network.

It’s a shame because I really like the idea of the video store.

Natiej85 said:

January 23rd, 6:44 am

I’m loving all the new additions and what not, but what’s up with the Anime selections? I mean I’m a Anime fan and it seem like alot of this anime I’ve never heard of. Where’s the DBZ, Naruto and Bleach? You know all the anime that’s been made in to video games. Oh yeah, and what’s up with the prices on movies that are so old being 9.99. I’m thing that’s the price of a semi newer movie and the olds should be more like the price of an HD rental. Who’s with me on that one . . . .

Destiny89 said:

January 23rd, 6:47 am

please bring it to canada!

Schnacky said:

January 23rd, 6:56 am

@Natiek85 – experiment with your anime, you will quickly realize that DBZ, Bleach, and Naruto arent very good. Use for reviews on animes if you want.

@Grace – Are we going to be getting a boxset for Xam’d: Lost Memories? If so will it physically be on Blu-ray or will it be digitally purchased versus rented?


January 23rd, 7:30 am

@17 Raacky

The Video Store is IP blocked. Setting up a ‘US Account’ would accomplish nothing.

Ftwrthtx said:

January 23rd, 7:40 am

Thanks for the info

Destiny89 said:

January 23rd, 7:43 am

to canada please!

Natiej85 said:

January 23rd, 7:45 am

@Schnacky – Thanx for your opinion and all, but if they aren’t very good then they wouldn’t have made them into video games. You can’t sell crap in a different media, only greatly recieved brands spread like wildfire across all media. Like for example, that horrible 50 cent game they came out with. I for one, can’t stand the guy, but he sales. It doesn’t matter what a review site says about him. THE FAN BASE ALWAYS MAKES THE BRAND. . . . write that down.

Jerommeke said:

January 23rd, 7:59 am

is this service still comming to europe ?
i really love this feature but i can’t use it because I’m in europe.

and when is vidzone comming :p?

akumatomPL said:

January 23rd, 8:01 am

himym “Bingo!”:D

Mangus_Lorcan said:

January 23rd, 8:09 am

I see this every week people whining can we get this in Canada or Europe. Does anyone see that this is! Note no CA or EU in the url this is the US Playstation Blog. Why don’t you ask the people at or when they are going to add Video to your Playstation Store.

Happy_Spud said:

January 23rd, 8:11 am

Still haven’t downloaded a single video. Blah. Way to cannabalize Blu-Ray sales!

LexDiamond79 said:

January 23rd, 8:11 am

The Universe Please. Find a way to upload The Universe. Season 3 should be out now. At lease put up some of the episodes.

PMW said:

January 23rd, 8:20 am

About time we had this store in the UK

sNsKid said:

January 23rd, 8:42 am

Dance of the Dead is a silly movie.

Dark Floors is a pretty tripped out movie. Can’t say I really understood the ending though.

Ok the top SD 1-6 movies aren’t even really good movies.
It’s nice to see that the top HD movies is something I’d agree with.

I see Fringe has made it to the PS Store! :D
These video store updates are so much better than the game side of things so far in 2009.

lakaiHIGH said:

January 23rd, 8:47 am

i wonder if i can request movies on here? oh well i’ll give it a shot…

can you guys add,

No, us Canadians don’t really get angry. We get mildly upset (and then apologize for it).

But in certain cases, we can get VERY mildly upset (to the point where we even consider skipping the apology).

thunder_storm_07 said:

January 23rd, 9:23 am

Can we please get an update on the status of the PSN video store in Canada?

We have a right as consumers to at least know where in the pipe-line this is for Canada. Not to mention Sony’s obligations to keep their ‘true’ shareholders in the loop.

GeneralOfDeath said:

January 23rd, 9:37 am

@17 Canadians cannot just make a US store account and expect it to work, they actually legally cannot distribute the videos to Canadians yet and therefore they have setup better precautions and made it IP based for the video store, On that when is Sony going to fix things for us… It cant be to hard seeing as the other console should have already paved the way…

SalMoriarty said:

January 23rd, 10:16 am

what are in the future plans for the video store? when will more networks and movie studios be added?

grognard66 said:

January 23rd, 10:20 am

More Godzilla movies please (in HD, if possible). Blu-Ray would be nice too. My son’s a huge Godzilla fan.

Jenovah said:

January 23rd, 10:22 am

You guys need to get LOST season 5 asap!

bigdaddyjane said:

January 23rd, 10:41 am

I wish SONY would show some love to the discovery network and release dirty jobs.Also,I may be wrong but it would be nice if UFC or WEC was on the PSN video store.

MartiniGroove said:

January 23rd, 10:43 am

All this content is great, but unless you find a better way to navigate the huge amount of content, it’s ultimately useless.

Expecting someone to scroll through a genre that has 300+ entries in it is kind of ridiculous.

triple_lei said:

January 23rd, 10:52 am

Well said, Mangus_Lorcan @ 29! Personally I’d like the WipEout Pulse DLC released in the US, but you don’t see me complaining on the UK PlayStation forums!

Dead-M said:

January 23rd, 11:15 am

But will this also come to europe?

I can’t find a release date or something anywhere.

MeanMrMustard said:

January 23rd, 12:08 pm

METALOCALYPSE!! Please add the rest of the second season of Metalocalypse. You are just a few episodes away. Please!! DEATHKLOK RULES!!

beastbarbour said:

January 23rd, 12:09 pm

PROPH3CY_ said:

January 23rd, 12:37 pm

wow..another video update,another sign of jealousy(and anger?) for us here in Canada.oh well,Americans can all enjoy the fun..T_T

Hello Sony,

I hope someone at this company is listining this week. After the announcment of $2.9B in losses forcasted this week, you guys had better be geeting your acts together. There is absolutly no reason at all why a company with this much media content should be in a situation like you are in. So here are a few tips to stop these losses.

1. DRM – Same across both the game store and the video store. Like I have said before, lead the way with Sony pictures. People are to scared to by content off PSN.

2. Rentals – Consumers have the option to rent. Sony has to make money, stop playing this childish game, and make all movies avaiable for rent.

3. Prices – SDTV shows are rediculously priced. I can buy the Blu-ray set for the same as you SD set. Get your prices in line.

4. Packages – TV Shows can be bought as a package deal, PSN should not be differant than elswhere.

5. Options – Every piece of content on the store should have,

SD Rental (minus TV)
HD Rental (minus TV)
SD Buy
HD Byu (720p)
Blu-ray Buy

This weeks bonus;

Get this service out in Canada, EU, and Austrailia.

They have batman beyond season 1,2, & 3 ill definitely be watching those. I wish they would upload more anime like dbz, rorouni kenshin, outlaw star, etc.

SoYoung said:

January 23rd, 3:29 pm

its ridiculus that we, Canadians wont have this like 6 months later. This feature is US only so I dont see why they post the updates here because its just a group of people who actually have it..

oh well..I guess I have to go on my Xbox Live account to rent some movies online…
