News: PSN Video Delivery Service in Oz

Sony Australia announced today their plans for Australia to finally join the rest of the world and offer the ‘PSN Video Delivery Service’.

Australians will now be able to download standard-definition and high-definition movies from the PlayStation Network. Sony Computer Entertainment Australia (SCEA) has stated that the service will officially release this Thursday (20th) at 1 AM AEST and will open with over 600 titles on launch. Some of the launch titles will include Jennifer’s body, Sherlock Holmes, Capote, Avatar, Dreamland, Inglourious Basterds, Up in the Air and Surrogates.

The pricing for rentals (in SD of HD) is from $3.99 AUD and will be the same as the Xbox 360 allowing the user to keep the movie for 14 days, but this will lower to 48 hours after first viewing. Alternatively, PSN users can purchase the films outright from $7.99 AUD. These purchases will come from your PSN account using money from your PSN wallet and can be stored on either your PS3 or PSP.

    Sounds good, the HD movies will rape my DL allowance though :(
    Will stick to hard copy rentals for now, I can at least make 'back ups' of those ;)
