Hey All,

 

Now the store is finally with us, whats your thoughts?

 

I personally think it's pretty good, films to rent are roughly the same as blockbusters pricing, and some films to buy are only £6.99 so it seems good value to me...  (Plus getting a film out without even leaving your house? Can't be bad!)

 

Its a free service so i think it's spot on, but thats me..... your thoughts??

You can't get Transformers for free if you've already had a PSN account on your PS3. :Argh:

 

Guess I won't be able to see Megan Fox in HD then. :xCry:

I'm still waiting for my free copy of Casino Royale which I should've got when I bought my PS3 :|

 

I guess I'll just stick to using mininova instead then :P

I've got to admit, I was taken back a bit by this news. I would've gladly sawn off my left nut with my free copy of Casino Royal to see Megan Fox in HD..... IF.... I hadn't already perved over her on Sky+HD months ago.

 

I feel sorry for those (like me) that activated their PS3's a long time ago, but really I don't feel I'm missing out on anything. I got my free film a long time ago, to keep getting them for free would feel like stealing. I'm not entitled to it, fair play. NEXT!

Think its fine to drop the price over time and add new bundles but when its free content for registering a device I think it should be global not segmented into groups.

EPIC FAIL! I am normally the first to support Sony but I cant believe everyone is singing the film store's praises! SD films with 2.0 sound for £11.99???? Are you all mad???? A fiver to rent an HD film (only 720p I might add)?????? Are you all crazy???

This is a retro grade step for Sony big time.

Why showcase the PS3 as an HD entertainment system with all its capabilities to the then offer SD and no surround sound. I for one will be sticking to amazon.co.uk for the cheapest blu rays around (starting from £6.98!!!!)

It's just 2 channel stereo on the films, no 5.1/7.1 on them.

£7 for a blu-ray movie is pretty good?

£7.00 for a bluray movie is good when its a hard copy on bluray disk not when it's a digital download im sure u can order the latest movies from sky box office for around £3.91

Is that not a rental price? In which case the rental price for the videostore is around that anyway, this one you get to keep. I hope the £6.99 even is HD though its more likely to be SD considering the retail price.
