I dont wanna keep giving my money to Microsoft, but your not exactly giving me a option here.

Am I missing something or does this blog entry not actually list anything that was added to the store this week?

KazeEternal said:

April 23rd, 11:48 am

Speaking of Avatar, how will the PSN Store handle the 3D version of the movie? Will owners of this download be given a voucher?


April 23rd, 11:56 am

Voucher? Good luck, you’ll have to buy Avatar again. But you wont mind cause at least you can buy it on YOUR ps3.
It just doesn’t do anything in Canada….

@10 These Movis were added this week just the list of Movies become Official on Fridays and different sales become available so relax sour patch lol… go get Ronnin or something, see my AUDI S8 in action in that movie :)

CheckMark said:

April 23rd, 2:17 pm

@15, I understand that video content is added sporadically throughout the week, but I thought these Friday posts were supposed to provide a list of everything that was added. This post doesn’t list any titles that were added this week…

Why hasn’t this come to Canada yet? Is it a CRTC thing?

MadMeat001 said:

PS3 It Only Does Everything.

(Except in Canada)

I know it’s not your fault, but could you atleast speed up the process to try and bring it to us!

smokey_vols said:

April 23rd, 5:03 pm

So what was actually added this week besides Avatar or was that all?

S-E-G said:

April 23rd, 5:23 pm

thus the 10 year life cycle
and that’s mostly meant for Canadians
by then U.S will be on PS4
and Canada should be up to par feature wise on ps3 Slim 2

iluvplaystaion said:

PS3 is the best there could ever be in systems

KanesInferno said:

April 23rd, 6:54 pm

Please add Mighty MAX, I’d buy all the episodes! One of the most overlooked cartoons and also the King Arthur cartoon from the 90s!

Korlithiel said:

April 23rd, 8:21 pm

I wonder if the DRM on the videos will ever get fixed, sure doesn’t seem like it will ever be worth buying or even renting from the PSN without at least being able to redownload as needed.

letherclad said:

April 23rd, 9:42 pm

Can you start a separate canadian blog so we don’t have too keep hearing them whine?

Keeng said:

April 23rd, 10:25 pm

I feel bad for the Canadian crowd here. They really need to get that nailed down.

Sean_Ryan said:

April 23rd, 10:31 pm

what a joke… still no update as to when the store will be available, i buy blu rays but it would be nice to have a video store here in Canada

angelspawn77 said:

April 23rd, 10:40 pm

why would i get avatar on the store when I could get a physical copy on blu-ray? I just saw it again today on blu-ray and I must say it looks amazing, blu-ray is the best way to watch this movie, dvd just doesnt do it justice.

cmon plz bring it to CANADA

moix11 said:

April 24th, 7:12 am

come on give us MKV support…

Must be some kind of mental defect in Americans. Their brains seem to block out those certain letters when placed in that combination.

That bigger country to the north of you wants a video and comic store. Make it happen you thick heads.

glitched18x said:

April 24th, 10:32 am

To Sony FYI: there are playstation gamers as well as video watchers in CANADA! Yes, we do exists and we will be buying videos as well as other games IF ONLY IT’S AVAILABLE HERE IN THE GREAT WHITE NORTH.

glitched18x said:

April 24th, 10:40 am

LOL @22, that is so true. Asian countries are more up-to date with the US when it comes to technology, gadgets, etc. And to think Canada is just a step up the border away. *sigh, If that’s the case I guess we can’t do anything but whine.

PirateHarlock said:

Microsoft provides movie n tv downloads 2 canadians n many other countries. Sony does not, guess where my moneys being spent? u buet ur *** its not sony getting it. As long as sonys arrogance continues my money will continue to go to its competitors. and no an overpriced mlb package running only baseball with blackouts means nothing to many of us who don’t care a bit about baseball (ie. most of the world). Don’t give us any legal licencing arguments. if microsoft can do it so can u. Time for sony to cut the BS n start making good on its many failed promises.

If we’re missing something in Canada like access to a website (hulu) or access to a store (PSN video store) or other digital entertainment stuff, you can almost be 100% sure that it’s because of the CRTC and our backwards policies.

I would love to see this in Canada though, I’m sure it can be figured out somehow.

Dear Grace,

I am having some issues with my US Account, I recently swapped hard drives, and was trying to transfer over my movies, and now they say all the copy right material is incorrect. I was trying to PM you, like my friend Tony told me to do, but I cant figure out how..

I would appreciate it, if you could help me.
