PS3_member.jpg

Netflix will soon be accessible to PlayStation 3 owners. Xbox 360 users, Roku owners and some Internet connected TVs already have the capability. The streaming service will be free to PS3 users who have a subscription starting at $8.99, as opposed to Xbox 360 owners, who must pay $50.00 a year and join the Xbox Live "Gold" club.

Recent word hits us that Wii will also have the capability. Users need a Netflix Instant Streaming Disc at a price of $9.99. In both cases, a broadband connection is needed.

Look Ma, no glasses. Sony has jumped on the 3D bandwagon with their prototype 360º Display. Debuted at this week's Tokyo's Digital Contents Expo, it stands about 10.6" with a diameter of 5.1". With support for 24-bit 96x128 resolution color, this may just be the next generation of digital frames. The company also plans to launch an LCD TV with 3D capability, and will build in support into the PS3, VAIO laptops and Blu-ray players.

Sony to Offer Blu-ray Streaming on PSP and PS3

godzillanew.jpg

Beginning in November, some Sony Picture films will include an extra disc that allows an additional download via USB. The PSP copy is accessible on the PS3 and in some cases a separate DVD is included. Both "Godzilla" and "The Ugly Truth" will be part of the collection. We call that a clever advertising move on Sony's part as cross marketing has a tendency to inspire holiday shopping.

Logitech Harmony Adapter for PS3

harmony_adapter.jpg

Logitech recently launched its Harmony Adapter for Playstation 3 that
supports all 51 commands. The accessory converts Harmony IR commands to Bluetooth signals with a simple guided set up. Play a game, turn your PS3 on or off, watch a DVD or Blu-ray movie with one button press. The adapter is AC powered, a good thing if you want instant use, a bad thing if you thought it would work when the PS3 is powered down.

Loot Aims For Virtual Rooms at a Price

livingroom.jpg

Sony has teamed with a developers group to form Loot. They plan to offer "interactive entertainment products" for PlayStation Home gamers. They already have one for us all called "Living Room Stage Set." It's basically an empty media soundstage that can be filled with cameras, props and furniture. Each "set" will undoubtedly cost $4.99 at Sony's Home Mall. We are not so sure about this idea, which they hope will spur on your friends to compete with their own Stage Set. If we had that kind of extra money, we would probably spend it on another bean bag chair.

Sony Announces Video-On-Demand for PS3 and PSP Owners

sonyvod.jpg

Our sister site TVSnob has some great news for PS3 and PSP owners, a new video service from Sony is on the way:

Just days after Microsoft announced Netflix would be coming to the Xbox 360, Sony has announced a new video service for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable that has already kicked off with 300 full-length movie titles and 1200 TV shows. That's just a start-Sony claims that they have signed seven movie studios to the service including Disney, Fox, MGM, Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, and Lions Gate.

Both HD and SD movie rentals will be available priced between $2.99 and $5.99 and TV shows will set you back $1.99 per episode, and you'll be able to purchase standard-def movies with the exception of those from Disney.

While that's some great news, we'd still like to see some free content coming from Sony.

PS3 Media Streaming Guide


PS3.jpeg


We came across a pretty simple setup guide to get your PS3 streaming all of your media to your TV. There have been a lot of updates to the PS3 over the past couple of months and it has turned into a pretty full functioning media streamer. If you already own a PS3 then you might not need to go out and buy a pure media streamer at all. From the looks of it the PS3 can handle all of the streaming duties you throw at it.

It is nice to see the PS3 really catch up with the Xbox 360 in this area. It seems that all of the companies producing the next generation consoles realized the extra benefit of adding media streaming capability to their device. We know a lot of people that aren't geeky gadget owners and who aren't into the whole streaming thing, but once they found they could stream movies via their console they loved it and were converts. It seems that console streaming could be the gateway application to get a wider audience to realize the beauty of having all of your movies, music and pictures at your fingertips. Anyway, check out the simple guide to get the server and the PS3 working together here.
