Six Major Movie Studios Contribute To Expanding PSN
The PlayStation 3 is an all-in-one entertainment device, which is why Sony continues to provide owners with more and more Network content.
Today, Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) has announced the arrival of six new major motion picture studios for the PSN. 20th Century Fox, Walt Disney Pictures, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Universal Pictures, and Warner Bros. Digital Distribution will all contribute some of their high-definition films, which users will be able to rent or buy from the PSN in the US. The Network is the first to offer HD movies for purchase from all the major studios. Added SCEA senior vice president of marketing and the PSN, Peter Dille:
"Securing high definition content from these studios is another significant milestone further validating PlayStation Network as a complete entertainment network in the home. PlayStation Network is the first and only service to deliver high definition home entertainment from all six major studios, directly to consumers for download. PlayStation Network continues to offer the most comprehensive catalogue of HD movies to PlayStation Network members that realize the wide-ranging entertainment power of the PS3 system."
The list of added movies from each studio is as follows:
- 20th Century Fox – "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian", "Jennifer's Body" and "Fantastic Mr. Fox" (on March 23)
- Walt Disney Pictures – Disney Pixar's "Up", Jerry Bruckheimer's "G-Force" and Disney's "Earth"
- Paramount Pictures – "Star Trek", "Paranormal Activity" and "Zoolander"
- Sony Pictures – "This Is It", "2012", "District 9" and "Zombieland"
- Universal – "Inglourious Basterds", "Couples Retreat" and "Public Enemies"
- Warner Bros. Digital Distribution - "The Hangover", "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince" and "The Wizard of Oz"
One would think I'd find a pic of the best movie in that lot, but instead, I decided to go with Megan Fox. So sue me.
