US: New partners for PSN video service

Publish date:

SCEA has penned deals with a number of film companies that will bring a whole host of new content to the PS3 video rental service.

Leading the line-up is Star Wars creator LucasArts. Recent animated release Star Wars: The Clone Wars has already been confirmed for PSN, but the possibility of the entire sci-fi sags hitting Sony's service will be exciting to PS3 owners.

Other companies now on board with the US PSN video service include Cinetic FilmBuff, ContentFilm International, Image Entertainment, MPI Media Group and New Video.

Sony now claims that there is over 10,000 hours worth of downloadable content now available on the service, including 2,300 films and 14,400 TV episodes.
