PS3 HD Movies in Stereo? | PS3Blog.net
As a lowly Canadian, I do not currently rate access to Sony’s PSN video download service. But if I did have such access, I don’t know if I’d be using it after all.
When Sony announced the availability of the store, I was excited that I now had another source of HD content. But now I hear that HD movies (all of them? some of them?) on the PSN store are only in stereo.
As in, two channels of sound.
We aren’t in the 80’s anymore Sony. We need our surround sound. If I’m going to dish out that much dough for an HD movie rental, I expect top notch video and sound. That means at least 720p (preferably 1080p) video and 5.1 surround sound (at least!).
Quite a disappointment. I hope that this is only a temporary thing, or is just being reported incorrectly. Otherwise, once the video store finally does make it to Canada, I will not be partaking.
