UK PlayStation Video Store Gets Release Date

VG247 are reporting that the UK PlayStation Video Service will kick off on the 18th of November, which they claim is revealed via an invite to a party that TheSixthAxis also received a couple of weeks back but assumed wasn’t meant to be public knowledge.  The invite, as far as we knew, is actually for the launch party and not necessarily the actual public release date of the service, which we think is still going to be the week after, accompanied with a firmware update – we were told the Video Service needs new system software, and we’ve been told that update won’t be until the 25th (or thereabouts).

Release date fight, then, all bets are on!


In the meantime, we haven’t been told any details on pricing yet, but as we said before, we do have a list of studios behind the service – 20th Century Fox, Disney-ABC-ESPN Television, Lionsgate, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures, Starz Media, Universal, and Warner Bros – and a list of films available, which includes Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Hannah Montana: The Movie, Bruno, Angels & Demons, Casino Royale, Crank 2: High Voltage and The Hills Have Eyes. We’ll let you know when we get anything else.

Thanks, RadioactiveMouse.
