PS3 gets VUDU, yet another movie service

PS3′s got you covered for movies, America.

As Engadget reports, VUDU will release on American PS3s on November 23, joining Hulu Plus, Netflix, and, of course, Sony’s own Movie Store.

VUDU is Walmart’s recently-acquired video service, and provides on-demand HD titles streamed for a fee, up to 1080p and Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 surround sound. Sounds familiar.

A UI update is planned for the PS3 version of VUDU in mid-December, an update that will bring Move support.

    Because of choice.
    Theres probably loads of users registered to VUDU. Thats potential buyers of the console.

    Come VG247… keep up mate.

    The US probably looks at MUBI and LoveFilm and say the same but to europe its a welcomed service.

    Why is Sony cannibalizing it’s own Movie Store by letting these providers onto their system?
