In a post to PlayStation.Blog, Peter Dille, Senior Vice President, Marketing & PLAYSTATION Network, lists a number of updates, games, and features coming to the PlayStation3 in 2008. The one I’m most interested in is the long-awaited downloadable content. Sony has been talking about providing real, full-length entertainment video downloads (not just trailers and such) for a while now, and it sounds like it is finally getting close:
Many of you have been hearing rumblings about a video service that will allow you to download full-length TV shows and movies via PLAYSTATION Network for North America. While I donâ€™t have any new announcements here for the PlayStation Nation, itâ€™s already been confirmed that weâ€™ll be offering a video service for PS3 in a way that separates the service from others youâ€™ve seen or used. Ultimately the goal of the PLAYSTATION Network service will be to break through the overwhelming clutter of digital media to give you the TV, movies and gaming content you want. More on this very soon â€¦
I’m very curious as to what Sony will offer, especially if they offer HD downloads with better quality than what the others are offering today.
