Who cares what it has on it, its a scam to buy anything movie wise from the psn movie service. I learned the hard way. I bought tons of movies from the psn movie store in a span of years, which by the way has no record of a download list of anything bought movie or TV episode wise like we have for games purchased. Its throwing money away. On vudu when we BUY A MOVIE its keeps it on their cloud to watch when we want and keeps a record and list of movies or tv episodes bought unlike the scam of the psn video store. They only allow 1 activation for video on ps3 so I don’t understand why they can't have a download list for TV and movie content bought like you do for the games section on the psn store. I have lost lots of money cause I backed up my movies on usb stick's with the feature they gave us to allow that and I bought a new harddrive for my ps3 and changed it and transferred my movies back onto the same ps3 but it says it wants the license renewed, so I click on the message and it sends me to the psn store to BUY the movie again I mean come on. Untill they give us a download list for movies and tv episodes bought like they have for games bought they don’t need to waste my time with their offerings on the PS BLOG. The psn video store without a download like like they have for games is a RIP OFF. Its throwing money away if you change a harddrive or your ps3 goes bad and you buy a new one you have no way of reclaiming your bought movies. The usb transfer feature will NOT work on a different PS3 or a New harddrive on the same ps3. I learned the hard way and lost out on movies I BOUGHT. Thanks Sony PSN Video Store team for Ripping me off. You need a DOWNLOAD LIST for the video store as well. Without it, its a SCAM! A expensive rental service at charging us full prices for a glorified digital rental. If we have ps3 issues and buy a new ps3, or change a harddrive it wants us to renew the movie license which means REBUY IT AGAIN. What is the point of buying your movies then? RIP OFF! Vudu knows how to do it right!
Whilst I agree with your sentiment & have some sympathy for your position, I also think Sony should / could have a better way of adminstering the video store & it's purchases, this has been known for some time & it clearly states that videos are a one-time only download.

I agree it makes no sense to pay full price for a rental agreement. Sony sales show im not the only one that thinks this. And now anyone who bought comics on PSN will never get them back unless they make backups of what they own. Who else does this?
But I agree the Sony video store is bad news to deal with...

It's fine for renting movies, but don't buy any movies..unless they're on sale for like $5.
Thats all it is good for.
