  • Lots of Family Guy purchases :)

  • I guess T-Dog is really Popular lol.

  • Good evening, i have 1 question to ask:
    Why don’t you release the PSN games on Blu-Ray disc(s)? For example, you could make compilations, such as the ‘most sold PSN games’ .

  • You should add Once to the video store…and put it non BluRay as well

  • DEAR GOD WHY ARE PEOPLE STILL WATCHING MEET THE SPARTANS!!!

  • STILL waiting for Canadian content!

  • Some please release a patch to fix the PSN Friend List.
    Please fix the PSN friend list message system!!!

    Thanks you.

  • My recommendation: Unless you’re looking for it, it’s tough to identify the Video icon in the upper-left portion of the PSN.

    I recommend you make the button/signs/etc for Video more noticeable or provide a banner for films/shows in the ads of the main PSN page that would transition visitors to that portion of the site.

    I’m confident that many users aren’t even aware of the Video store option, even after multiple visits to the PSN.

  • Nice, after the Olympics are over I’ll hit some of this stuff up.

  • Please hurry up and bring the movies store to Canada!!!!!!!

  • I am all over Chuck season 1, can’t wait for season 2 too start. I am still suprised to see Meet The Spartans is still in the top 5, people have horrible taste.

  • Subscription pleaseeeee?!? And Deals for buying full seasons would also be very much appreciated!!!! Keep up wit the great content!

  • The only reason Sony is taking so long to bring the video store in Canada is that because Canada has certain laws that makes it harder to get copyrighted material in. So be patient…

  • NICE!!!, just a question are you partners with THE CW? im a huge smallville fan, any chance of the PS3 video store getting the next season?

    Firmware update suggestions***
    Web browser flash player update to 9

    Nice job PSB!!

  • You guys should have really played up that you now have NBC signed on for the service. Thats really awesome. Now please just get Heroes in the store!

    FYI: If I click TV show downloads, then click networks. There is no choice for NBC.

  • PLEASE read this .

    Chuck is listed as NBC. Though when you click on Networks, NBC isn’t there. I had to go “TV New arrivals” or “View all TV > C” to see Chuck there.

    Is there any chance that we may see Heroes or The CW on the Video store anytime soon?

    I would greatly appreciate an answer, as I have asked before on these Video posts and never been replied too before. Thanks in advance.

  • #3 hmm that sounds almost like a good idea lol

    #14 yes updates Flash and Java for that matter

    also any idea on the missing eps on some Tv shows seasons? it just seems seriously off to have like 20 eps of a 23ep season. the Adult Swim stuff still shouldn’t be costing 1.99 compared to 23-25min shows

  • Wow, Drillbit Taylor has been up there quite awhile, hasn’t it?

  • Does this mean that NBC is now officially on the video store? If so, why isn’t it listed on the networks page? For that matter, why isn’t CBS listed on the networks page for shows like The Unit and How I Met Your Mother?
    Also, please bring us Heroes!

  • @18
    Maybe it’s because the first guys to use the store watched meet the spartans and drillbit taylor and no one has rented any movies from the store since then :(

  • Wow, that top 20 is a little disturbing. I really thought the average PS3 owner had better taste than that. Is “Norbit” on the store yet? That should do very well.

  • @20
    Not true. I’ve rented from there, at least, once a week and I have a few friends who have used the video store every now and then.

    None of us have rented Meet the Spartans.

  • @3

    PSN titles are relatively small files. thats probably why they wont do that.

  • eyes wide shut, natural born killers, full metal jacket,memento, and more metalocalypse…great update!

  • sorry for being of subject,but does anybody know anything about the games getting the accomplishments

  • when will the video store be available in the rest of the world?

  • Haha, nice. I love the series “Chuck.”

  • Afro Samurai eh?

  • I would like to say that while I have been using the PSN movie download service I find that it is lacking a few key features that are needed to make it a more complete service.

    1) Ratings
    The ability for people who have watched the movie to rate a movie (out of 5?)

    2) Popularity
    The ability to filter “within” genera for the popularity (i.e. the number of downloads of movies)

    3) Previews of movies before downloading

    4) Movie a section for free movie downloads (small indy or short films) as this would entice people to use the store

    5) Integration with a movie review site (like rottentomotoes.com) to immediately see if a movie got good reviews before i download (could be in the movie details/info section)

    6) “Every” film should have info/details about the movie (genera,year,actor,synopsis).

    7) More movies (new and old….I mean really old) !!!

    My wife and I really love this service have canceled our blockbuster (online) account and prefer the ability to (almost) immediately watch shows rather than wait for DVDs in mail.
    It just seems that the PSN movie service is somewhat rushed and not very revolutionary!

    Thanks,

  • Still no “download list” to re-download paid-for videos = none of my money.

  • Please start adding a lot of previews to movies and t.v. shows. I really need to know what the stuff is before I buy it.

    I have a lot of Astro Boy but I don’t know which ones you’re putting up. I also can’t find trailers of that Comic Book movie. We might rend or buy more stuff if we can see what it looks like. Please provide us with some more previews so we can find out if we want to play it or not. Thank you guys I love the PSN Movie service but I need a job and a 500GB Hdd before I’ll do it. Should hopefully be able to do it in a month or so.

    I have over 500 DVDs I’m kinda tired of DVDs and I don’t use DVD players other than my PS3 anyway.

  • I also want to say that at one point i remember people saying that a PSN movie download service will have a negative effect on Blu-ray sales. Well I think it will have a negative effect on crappy movies (blu-ray or SD-DVD).

    I still buy my favorite movies and the video and audio quality of PSN movies will not (for a loooong time) compare to Blu-ray.

    I watched spiderwick chronicles and truly enjoyed it I really hope to see more of quality movies like this.

    Also another Item to add to my list is a better global search i could not find spiderwick chronicles when i just searched for “spider”. The ability to search meta data should also be an option (year,actor,details,etc).
    For those of us that cannot spell very well “suggested matches” (similar to google) would be helpful.

  • this is a bit offtopic but i’ve had no success w/customer support.

    when the video store launched, i purchased Independence Day for $9.99. however, a few weeks back I upgraded my PS3 harddrive again from a 160gb to a 320gb and in turn i deleted all of my movies (since most our ones i owned and were converted on my pc to mp4) to help keep my backup file size down.

    where do you go to redownload movies you purchased? my transaction does not show up in my account or in my download history?

    help… please? and while your at, home beta please? heheh..

  • Awesome, Meet the Spartans is going down! :o

  • It streaks me as a bit sad that the weekly content update is so small that it can actually be listed in a short blog post.

    I wonder if there is any chance that the store will eventually get new episodes the day after they air like every other video download store. Or if they’ll ever get around to having a worthwhile selection.

    Also, as someone else stated, until I can redownload purchases, I’m not touching this thing. These files aren’t exactly small and even with upgrading hard drives and/or using external drives, the cost/benefit quickly goes to me just buying it on disc (or from another site like Amazon.com).

  • caliminius@35
    I hope that they fix they browser and adobe flash support so that HULU becomes a viable option to augment this movie service.

  • yey! all we need is d “video store here in canada”

  • 1) Why is the first episode of season 1 from Lost in Space missing? Wouldn’t it make sense to include it?

    2) Please bring all of the episodes and the TV movies of Babylon 5 TV series.

  • This is all nice but Canada wants some to

  • Can u Guys ADD DragonBall Z (The Cell and Majiin Buu Series), The Simpsons & That 70’s Show PLZ!!!!

  • Glad to see Chuck on there. I would really love to see some Burn Notice in HD as well as some Futurama and maybe some Psych.

  • So um are seasons being sold in packages yet so they don’t cost more than their DVD counter parts?

  • @20
    I’ve rented some stuff and bought some TV show eps of How I Met Your mother so it has to be at least 3 people buying all of the Top 20 once

  • oh yea not being able to re-download them sucks…a lot makes me iffy on buying some stuff what’s the point of showing the list like the game portion if you can’t even re-download stuff in case you do a switch of the hard drive without backing it up you just lost all the stuff you bought, by not letting you re-download it is basically saying I don’t own it but renting it for the lifetime of my hard drive. #29 has some good points, all movies have trailers just add trailers in the “folder” of the movie after you pick it to look at the synopsis, hell the synopsis could come from imdb, wikipedia, or the movies/studio site as long as it’s there

  • This update is killer! Is the movie store coming to Canada within the next month or so? I heard it is going through the censors at CTRC. I just can’t wait for this service to hit up north! My girlfriend loves Across the Universe, and is dying to have it on the PS3.

    Thanks!

  • edit: CRTC

  • Are there more than the first 4 episodes of Afro???

    And when you say Season 1… as far as I know you can only buy by episode not season…

  • Would be curious to also see the top ten most active online titles played each week on PSN as well.

  • this is good, you just need to put up some south park too! and get the service to europe.

  • how come I can’t rent movies or tv programs in Canada? I have looked through my playstation store and no where to be found. When can we expect rentals to come here? Will there be a external storage device offered to people like myself who already paid the 499 for the 80gb?

    thanks
