Music and Video for PlayStation Network

  • submit to reddit

Purveyors of Walkmans and exploding batteries, Sony, are planning to increase the media capabilities of their current PlayStation iteration.

The new plan, according to the Financial Times, is for Video and Music to be downloaded from the PlayStation Network to the PS3. While it has already been confirmed that the PSN will soon offer Video-on-demand services, the inclusion of Music downloads is new.

However, no release date or any other details are available at the time of writing. Hopefully, the music will be transferable to a PSP, so it can be listened to on the move.

Also, there will be all kinds of crazy DRM stuff to do with the media, with play of the files likely to be limited to so many PSP’s and the console it was downloaded to.

We'll keep you updated on any further developments.

Stay tuned.
