Is ‘Curse of Chucky’ coming next week? I know the US get it on demand from Sunday. I really can’t wait to see it.


When PS Vita TV is launched in Europe next year, will the Video Store be discontinued? After all, considering the approach of partnering with third-party content providers (Hulu, Netflix etc.) should outsource some if not all of the legality issues of multi-region content delivery into the hands of specialists who deal with such matters as part of their day jobs, this would appear to be the silver bullet SCEE have been looking for in the face of the ongoing roadblocks in getting content to more than a select few “special” countries.

Let’s be honest, the Video Store initiatve has not worked out, with many promises being reneged on. Can we at least assume that a fresh direction next-gen might ensure millions of SCEE customers are no longer left out of the loop?


watched epic it was not bad worth a watch if you like cartoons like me.

not a patch on the best cartoon ever wreck it ralph :) but still fun

Bland CGI ‘cartoons’ with ‘popular’ hollywood actors and singers voicing the characters instead of properly skilled and experienced voice actors. Got tired of those a long time ago. Hand drawn 2D still looks better in my opinion. Was watching a few classic Disney movies recently from a variety of eras such as Peter Pan, Robin Hood and Aladdin and found myself hating CGI stuff like Pixar’s movies even more…

i like hand drawn animation just as much as cgi.

lots of cgi stuff i like have fantastic scripts.

my 2 favs without a doubt are wreck it ralph and the incredibles (with a honorable mention to the toy story films).
i like the fact that cartoons are now more original story’s, all the disney classics(which i still like and enjoy) were pretty much all retellings of fairy tales and classic stories, i kinda like the fact that the pixars (and others) are going with new ideas.


You mean like how Sony had adds running in The Nordic countries for the XperiaZ showcasing video unlimited but when we bought the phone/tablet it was ‘look jk no workie’.

Just look what Netflix/Spotify and iTunes(when they don’t force lingual region restrictions) did to Pirating here.

Yeah screw the cable/satellite providers go full present and stream you yahoos.



And not one reply. Says a lot about this service, doesn’t it?
