GameStop to Sell Digital Video Game Content Downloads

GameStop to Sell Digital Video Game Content Downloads 200°
277w ago - Retailer GameStop is set to begin selling digital video game content downloads as part of a new service.

The idea behind this is that a GameStop shopper could learn about a new level for their favorite game, purchase it and then immediately play it when they get home.

To quote: "The new program, which GameStop will start testing early next year, will work in conjunction with online services offered by leading console makers, such as Microsoft Corp's Xbox Live and Sony Corp's PlayStation Network.

Under the program, a GameStop shopper who learns about a new level available for, say, a war or sports game could immediately purchase that upgrade. When the shopper arrives home, the add-on will be available to download and play.

"A large market for full game downloads is not imminent, (but) the add-on downloadable market will grow," GameStop Chief Operating Officer Paul Raines said at the BMO Capital Management Digital Entertainment conference."
 

Burn2u Service - Your File Downloads Sent to You By Mail

Burn2u Service - Your File Downloads Sent to You By Mail 850°
283w ago - Hi guys, I can't stress it enough how excited I am to start my own business. Finally - I mean I bought everything I need and have full copyrights + patents.

Anyways - Burn2u (linked above) is very simple and a great program for the people with slow Internet connections, or just don't want to waste space on their computer.

What we do is simple: You send us your order form. You fill out your info. You give us 10 URLs, we download them for you, and burn them on the media type of your choice.

That's right, CD/CD-RW/DVD+R/DVD-R/DVD+RW - Coming soon are flash drives and memory cards.

We download the files you sent us and burn them to CD. We then send you an invoice via PayPal (more payment methods coming soon!) and once you've paid, we send you the CD/DVD(s) in the mail!

It's a flat-rate price for unlimited orders. If you order 20 links, or 30, we use 3 to 10 cds for it, or dvds, it's still the same price for shipping!

You get 3 free backups, just in case you break or damage a cd, you can request another by email.

And, not only that - We send you AIM/MSN/YM alerts for your download progress. Be sure to check our terms page!

I'm always updating my site for bugs/etc. You will probably not notice any changes but I am always editing it to...
 

PSP Video Downloads Direct from PSN go Live in Japan

PSP Video Downloads Direct from PSN go Live in Japan 50°
293w ago - We've known since E3 in June that Sony would open up the PlayStation Network for direct video downloads over WiFi to the PSP - no PC or PS3 required.

Now it's live, in Japan anyway. At the moment, there are about 90 PSN video titles to choose from at the moment including anime episodes at 200 (about $2) per or animated movies for 500 ($5.30) in standard definition or 600 ($6.40) for HD.

PSP downloaded videos can be transferred to the PS3 and some content can be rented for 72-hours at a pop. No word on US or European launches but really, how much longer could it be with the PSP Go launching on October 1st.

To quote, roughly translated: PSP PlayStation Store's video rental service is now available as well. Traditionally the first drop in the PS3 from the PSP to "move" is needed to further download the PSP via WiFi directly to Memory Stick and you can play.

Once downloaded to the start of play the first 72 hours are available for viewing and using the same DRM restrictions from the PS3. Like the PSP to the PS3, PSP and download content directly to the PS3 can play and move. "Of course" I should add, PSP can only rent the SD version.

And according to today's launch for the PSP:

•"Toro travel and THE MOVIE" (SD 500 version, HD version of 600)
 

GameStop Study Claims Game Downloads Not Viable Until 2014

GameStop Study Claims Game Downloads Not Viable Until 2014 400°
298w ago - Retailer GameStop has claimed that digital game downloads will not really take-off until 2014.

Their study also concludes that gamers are only willing to spend $39 per downloadable game.

To quote: In what it claims is the "most thorough study [of its variety] to date," videogame retailer GameStop has found that digital downloads - like those found on Steam, Impulse, Xbox Live Arcade and other such services - won't be making any real waves until 2014. Er, what?

And even once the strange, mysterious stardate of 2014 brings widespread acceptance of things like "The Internet," apparently only 25 percent of customers will "have access to the technology required to download full games."

Also, the study found that, as of now, gamers are only willing to spend $39 per downloadable game, "so publishers will be less incentivized than some in the industry think."
 

Rumor: Music Downloads Coming to Sony's PlayStation Network?

Rumor: Music Downloads Coming to Sony's PlayStation Network? 100°
302w ago - CNET has an interesting PSP/PSN rumor that might interest all you music lovers out there.

The word from CNET is that Sony has been talking to some big recording labels. This is of course about placing music on the PlayStation Network for download.

Apparently the pitched idea is focused on the PSP. This would make yet another great expansion to the PSN library. Add the rumored game rental service, the ever growing movies/TV shows library, and the talks about making PSN for other Sony products, this could get PSN to be a full fledged download hub from Sony.

Not a bad idea if you ask me. The focus on PSN will grow our reach, and will potentially cover the things we have been wanting for a long time. If this is Sony slowly trying to get digital distribution to us, they seem to be doing it the right way.

Don't get your hopes up though, this is all rumors. Now with that said, where is my cloud gaming?!
