Playstation Video Store Impressions

December 21, 2009 | | 5 Comments


The Playstation Video Store was launched in Europe last month and I got round to watching a couple of movies to test the service out.

First up I purchased Quentin Tarentino’s Inglorious Basterds (£11.99), at the moment you can only purchase movies in standard definition which is disappointing but the quality is about as good as upscaling a DVD through the PS3. The best feature about the video store without doubt is the fact that you can watch whilst the film is downloading. On the XMB go to Network > Downloads and then press triangle and select play, your movie will start instantly and not stop or skip at all. Its fantastic that you are able to watch a movie instantly and in full download quality as opposed to the video being streamed. Unfortunately I couldn’t say the same superlatives about the movie…

The Weekly Recap (December 13-19)

December 19, 2009 | | 2 Comments

There was a lot of buzz this week concerning the PlayStation Network and the mysterious “Premium Subscription” service that’s been hinted at for a few weeks now. Eddie’s post concerning a survey that went out solidifies what it’s supposed to be, assuming it’s the real deal. There’s actually quite a bit there and some of it is even cooler than what Live has (such as 1 hour of playtime on New Releases to the PlayStation Store and Store discounts in general). Other than that, we also got a few Final Fantasy bits in there as well, and some cool videos for other games and features. Also, be sure to check out Darrin’s opinion pieces, which I, myself, enjoy reading (it’s like his trademark, almost like Blackstaffer’s rants :P).

Oh yeah, and if you enjoy reading stuff on this site, be sure to subscribe to the new YouTube channel. I’m always throwing up new trailers on there (most in HD), and we were the first channel to host the new gameplay trailer for Red Dead Redemption outside of the official site :P. There’s also a few videos up there currently that aren’t trailers, such as the Need for Speed: SHIFT press event videos and my PS3 Netflix videos. Enough of this now, here’s the recap.

Not too much going on in the community this week. I did change the banners on this thing, though, and I think it came out looking pretty good. I’m glad the pattern I made with Tosh’s banner worked out OK haha. Also, I skipped over the new game release post for the past week because, well, there wasn’t anything that came out. Most releases are planned for the upcoming months, so I’ll definitely be busy then!

Also, just a heads up, there is a new poll up, and we’re planning on getting new ones up more often so it’s not the same poll you’ve been looking at for a month and a half :lol:. Here’s our recognitions, out of the 21 counted submissions:
