    ps3 PS3: Not Just For Games Anymore

    Starting tonight, our Video Delivery Service campaign officially launches with our first airing on Monday Night Football, but we're giving our loyal fans an early look right here.

    When the Video Delivery Service launched on July 15th, we broadened our content offering to include TV shows and movies to make the PS3 the total entertainment package. With nearly 1000 full-length movies and 2700 TV episodes for download onto the PS3 or PSP, the Video Delivery Service brings you digital entertainment right into your living room (popcorn not included). So check out great titles like The Dark Knight, Han$#@!, Iron Man, Family Guy, and much more.

    The TV spot uses humor to convey that the PS3 is not just a gaming machine but also a "movie downloading machine" when a guy tries to win over his skeptical girlfriend. You'll have to watch the TV spot to find out how this classic guy vs. girl face-off plays out to see who wins in the end.

    And don't forget, you only have until December 31, 2008 to save $150 on the purchase of a PLAYSTATION 3 by signing up for a PlayStation credit card!

    We know you guys are a vocal group and we look forward to reading your comments. Enjoy and roll the video!

    This is where the PS3 went wrong I believe.

    They are focusing on it being a entertainment system, not a gaming console.

    Maybe the gaming part of the PS3 isnt as popular since they still are (i think) making good games for the PS2?
    tho i cud be very wrong.
    the graphics on the PS3 are good so i think adding the movies and stuff is fine...as long as they dont stop making games for it altogether...

    Steering away from games is not helping them. The PS3 isn't a cheap Blu-Ray player anymore. Now you can get Blu-Ray players fairly cheap, so that aspect of the market is gone. I'm glad they have a video download service, but seriously, games, please?

    They were making PS1 games 4 years after the PS2s release. They support their consoles.

    As for the multimedia, not bad. They have something to fight against Netflix on the 360 now. Just focus on keeping more exclusives before anything else.
