Players from Japan and Europe will have the opportunity to enjoy the service at later dates. More details are likely to be unveiled next month during Sony's E3 Media and Business Summit conference.

who wants to bet that their movies will be over priced?? may as well charge users a monthly or pay as u go fee & the the movie streamed instead of downloaded. failing that theres plenty of other places when u can get movies without having to pay. Sony has to remain competitive by keep the cost per movie fairly low & 'competitive'. but this is Sony we are talking about - since when is anything of theirs at a competitive price unless retailers are selling it at reduced prices or at a small loss just to shift stock??? Im in no way disputing against their equipment - they make some of the best gadgets - but their overpriced

i heard that sony was working with netflix to bring a downloading service to the ps3. you subscribe to netflix and download the app for the ps3 crossbar and can watch all the hd movie rips you want for $15 a month.

it also says thats a rental not to buy the movie for your hdd. its more expensive than xbox live's movie service 800 credits are like 12.50 and a hd movie is about 300 credits so its only about 3 or 4 dollars to get movies via xbox live.

and no i am not a xbox fanboy i do own it i love it but im also saving for a ps3 for the blu-ray and such (and a few select games MGS4, Killzone 2,) as of right now. just stating that its more expensive for older movies in hd than on the 360.
