With Halloween coming up, there are some nice deals going on at the PSN video store. On Friday the 21st you will be able to rent Scary Movie 4 for free. Pretty sure it will be for one day only. Then on you Saturday you will be able to vote for a free rental of 1408 or Halloween here.
So, the PlayStation 3 has had Netflix for some time, and only recently was able to get a disc-free version of the service (which, I might add, is lightning fast compared to the disc), and Hulu Plus will officially launch next week. Now word is floating around that the VUDU service may also be heading to the system, and as soon as this December.
For those unfamiliar with VUDU, it is an HD Movie and TV streaming service, similar in a way to Netflix, that also allows you to purchase movies as well (and, unlike Netflix, it has a lot of new releases available to stream as well). It’s not subscription-based, though, so you’ll have to ‘rent’ movies like on-demand services from cable/satellite providers. IGN has gotten a hold of some internal documents from VUDU’s parent company, Wal-Mart, that says:
- PS3 and Vudu
- Walmart’s own digital download service will be available on the Playstation network
- Over 20 million existing PS3 customers will have access to this service
Of course, making it sound pretty official, IGN contacted both Sony and VUDU, and both declined to comment.
Starting Oct. 16th, and every Saturday through Halloween, PSN is “offering a FREE ‘Midnight’ movie rental from 5pm PST to 3am PST.” All three films will be SD (unfortunately), but what the heck, they’re FREE!! The movies will be the following:
Bram Stoker’s Dracula will be available Saturday night from 5pm PST 10/16/2010 and ending 3am PST 10/17/2010.
Savage County will be available Saturday night from 5pm PST 10/23/2010 and ending 3am PST 10/24/2010.
A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) will be available Saturday night from 5pm PST 10/30/2010 and ending 3am PST 10/31/2010.
PSN also has great Halloween movie and TV show deals going on each week in October, so be sure to check them out. More information can be found on their Halloween Fright Flicks page.
For what probably seemed like an eternity for Canadians, Sony has launched the long-awaited video store today. And between now and the 14th, you will be getting an email for a free SD copy of Charlie’s Angels (and only for Canada). And it came on Canada Day.
Heartless is to be the first ever film to get a simultaneous release in cinemas and on the the PS Video Store. Heartless, a new new film starring Noel Clarke and directed by Philip Ridley, will be available for download on the 21st May (or in the cinemas in the UK).
