Here we go! SCEE’s just confirmed it’s going to finally put some details down on the European PS3 Video Store in Cologne next week.
Said PS Store manager Angela Madronero in the comments thread of this FAQ: “We will be making an official announcement regarding our forthcoming Video Store, next week, at GamesCom!”
Sony said at Games Convention in Laipzig last year that the European version of the US Movie Store would launch this year: we’ve heard nothing since.
“At Games Convention in August last year, we announced that we had a long-term plan to launch a video on demand service for some countries in the SCEE region,” Madronero added.
“This is still our plan, and as soon as we have all the details locked down, one of my colleagues who is working on the programme will give you an update on when and what will be available.”
Bring it! Fucking bring it! Over-pump to the 40,000 percent max! There’s no way we’re going to get through any of this without having some sort of collective heart problem.

Despite the fact the US PC movie store clearly states in its terms and conditions that downloaded content stays deleted if you deleted it, Arstechnica’s reporting the SCEA is, in fact, a little more lenient than advertised with its DRM policy.
“If a consumer deletes a purchased movie from their PS3, they will not be able to redownload the movie without assistance from SCEA’s consumer services,” said PSN PR Lincoln Davis.
“Consumer service can issue a redownload as a one-time courtesy, as provided by our guidelines, for the title to allow the consumer to go back and download the movie from their PSN download list.”
Don’t get frisky if you’re allowed to download stuff again, however: you won’t be allowed to get content a third time.
Plenty more through there.

Speaking to VG247 at Games Convention in Germany last week, SCEE president David Reeves highlighted the difficulties in bringing the Movie Store service to European PS3s, but assured that SCEE “will get there” and launch the functionality on the Continent.
“On the video side, you will appreciate that when a movie comes out in Europe, if it’s a Fox movie, it’s not always Fox in Europe or Australia,” he said. “So we can’t take content from the USA and say, ‘I’ll talk to Fox headquarters in Europe,’ because they don’t have it, and that’s happened with several movies.
“We have to talk to a thousand different people to get the rights… And it does take a little bit of time to get that sorted out for Europe, and we’ve got all the languages and all the different cultures. We’re a bit behind, but we will get there.”
The US Movie Store was announced and launch at E3.
