Movie Downloads Reportedly Coming to PS3
In a move that would add yet another option for at-home movie downloads, Sony is said to be in negotiations with movie studios to make videos online available through the PlayStation 3 console. The Los Angeles Times reported that Sony is planning to launch the service this summer, and it would include movies and television shows.
The Times quoted studio executives close to the negotiations.
The service is Sony’s third attempt at a download service, following the failed Movielink and Sony Connect experiments. The new service will compete with Microsoft’s Xbox Live, as well as Apple TV, Vudu, and other downloading options.
