I have to say I do enjoy the selection you guys bring to this store every week, too bad I gave up on this feature coming to Canada so I have to do things the good old fashioned way and give my money to a movie store.

Nice update a lot of good stuff. Just wish I lived in Canada so I would have a reason to whine…….

Whats with Canada being left out of all the NA perks? Are we not part of NA?

Time and time again Canada gets the short end of the stick.

Thx Sony

I wished the service was in Europe. Then I could watch nice hd movies on the ps3. Pfff why is europe left alone.

and when does the europe playstation blog launch ?

May 15th, 7:32 am

WWE pay-per views please. And some one Tell Sony ADD Cannada to the video store and get some PSN card’s up there to what’s the hold up? I’m getting tired of people complaining every week and nothing happens?

King0fHearts2007 said:

May 15th, 7:33 am

Two movies I would like to see are:

Gleaming the cube
Cruel Intentions 2

Hi Grace :)

When will the G4 programming be making its way to the video store? I was told by one of their editors that it would be by the end of the month- can I maybe expect it next week? I’m dying for some AOTS, over here!


May 15th, 7:38 am


PSN cards are being released in Canada just before or in conjunction with E3 (what that means for vid store I don’t know).

Call your local EB Games Canada and they have them for preorder.


Can you please comment on tying content to the PSN id so that I can buy content and be assured that it will play on refurb machines when mine goes belly up or play on my second machine that I bought.

A time line promise is not necessary at this point but a comment as to SONY’s intent would be nice.

I have been asking this question now for 7 mos and await patiently for a reply.

In the mean time, given the SONY PSN TOS, I can’t understand why anyone would BUY video content.

Nemesishunter420 said:

May 15th, 7:46 am

I don’t really care about movies unless they were free to stream. Other wise I just download them myself.

But being constantly pushed aside for content because I live in Canada is pissing me off.

Korbei83 said:

Not the solution you want, but it’s not a bad idea to back up anything you download. You own it. Back it up.

I agree it is your right, and should remain so, to download the purchases you have made umpteen times to any machine you own. However, don’t count on the service to always be available to do it.

Back it up.

Kenshin71 said:

Grace, why doesn’t Sony put Afrika and Aquanauts Holiday on the PSN store? There are English versions available on disc so everything is set to go. They would be a good addition for the parents with kids demographic.


May 15th, 7:59 am


The issue with the new backup functionality is that it is still tied to the machine. If my machine borks (it has done so once already) the back ups will not be playable on the replacement PS3 or new PS3 as the case may be. It is a half measure at best.

I love digital distribution. Its unfortunate however that you will not digitally distribute to Canada.

I would gladly PAY for movies and TV shows from a reliable source (one that isn’t the Hell overlord Apple), however there is none…so I pirate every movie and television show I watch. Like I said…I would pay, but unfortunately Sony doesn’t want my money. Too bad for them.

When are gonna get get more anime on PSN, stuff like Bleach, Naruto, DBZ, Code Geass, and the Gundam series.

I think that would make a great addition to the PSN store.

MUSTANG750R said:

I wonder if Advent Children or Complete are going to pop up as a download soon, hmm?

xaos said:

May 15th, 9:25 am

Hey folks in Canada, I daresay the bilingual requirements from Quebec are to blame for you guys getting left out of lots of the USA stuff.

And I’ll add another vote in favor of subtitles being available on videos if at all possible.

PSN cards to Europe!!! We NEED it.

Any word on the ADV Films anime that they mentioned in a press release last week?

TheZed88 said:

May 15th, 10:01 am

KSPRAYDAD: I agree with you completly. The problem is, aside for the Sony Pictures content, it may not be Sony’s decision. Licensing contracts with the studios may prohibit them from allowing us to move the videos between boxes.

But I agree. Until we can, the video store is just something cool to look at for me.

Gr00v3r06 said:

May 15th, 10:17 am

Previews and Trailers for all video should be in the store. Really if you want to sell me a movie I should be able to watch the trailer right then and there. Please fix this. there are some lesser known movies that I might want to rent when broswing the store but with out seeing anything on it I will pass.
I’m not going to look up the movie in the browser and then go back to the store. Once you have me in the store keep me there.

Get some more Anime in the store. See if you guys can get deals with other Anime Distributors like ADV or Bandai. I’d like to see more Anime brought on here.

Krazyfoxx said:

What happened to the movie “Passengers”?
It’s on the list, and I thought I saw a banner for it the other day, but I can’r find it in the video store anywhere.
