Ya, i'm a member of those, you can't rent ps3 stuff too
It will be a "Flop"
By Europe, they mean the UK only.
WTF?! the video isn't working, isn't this supposed to advertise and make us want this? What a crock. Netflix, easy, works, already there... hmmm, and I get real physical discs too?!!? OMG!
This will definitely be a flop and it is just a matter of time before Sony releases a new "update" that will prevent present mediastreamers such as PMS to stop working since Sony will see it as another "security issue" and a threat to their dominance on the market.
I will keep my firmware 3.41 to all costs for sure.
Big Flick, like... Star Trek, Collateral, Alexander, and other big hits.
Wow, can't wait for this, i may even stop downloading from newsgroups altogether with movies like that!
They are so old, they may as well still be on VHS.
So true, what sony needs to do is give us a real media player like xbmc, but of course they cannot as they want blurays to exist.
Roll on a media player like vlc or xbmc for jb ps3's.
Hopfully one day i'll be able to use this on my ps3
