Looking to expand the reach of the PlayStation 3, Sony
is planning the launch of a movie service
for the console. With it, PS3 owners will be able to download full-length movies straight to it, and possibly music as well. Given the capability of the console to output in HD and its built in hard drive, it's a perfect path for it. It may end up even being a selling point, which the PS3 eneds badly at this point. No word on pricing, availability, time or other such details has been made public. However, one bone of contention is likely to be DRM, especially if people are seeking to pull those movies or songs off the PS3 to put onto their computer or a portable device.
