Video download service hits PSN this summer

pstore.jpgSony officially announced their plan to bring downloadable video services to “key Sony products”. The first step starts this summer with the PlayStation Network. Sony's video download service has been an open secret for months, but a photo from the presentation over at Impress Watch gives an idea about how much the service will cost. Ghost Rider, a 2007 film, costs $5.99 for a HD rental and $12.99 to purchase a SD quality video. These numbers may not be final since Sony has not made an official statement regarding the prices. No information was given if the videos will be PSP compatible either.


For more speculation here is an idea of what videos might be on the service compiled from various screenshots.


Donnie Brasco

Dragon Wars

Ghost Rider



Men In Black

Resident Evil: Apocalypse

Resident Evil: Extinction

Spider Man

Spider Man 2

Spider Man 3

    While this feature sounds good, I can’t imagine myself renting movies at that price, when Netflix lets you rent many movies (either SD or HD) a month. If I’m getting something in SD, regular DVDs are dirt cheap nowadays too. Plus all the d/l time and space that it takes up.. And really, watching movies on PSP feels innovative at first, but the screen is just too small to enjoy a flick.
