I keep checking PSN video and comparing it to other ways that I could rent/buy movies and tv shows, and I must say, it’s horribly overpriced.
Take House. I missed some episodes in the middle of season 5, but I’m not 100% certain where I stopped watching. It’d be $48 to buy all of season 5 on PSN or another one of these video streaming sites at $2 an episode.
I could buy the whole thing for $20 though on DVD.
I’ve pretty much missed season 4 and 5 of Venture Bros as well. The price to watch this in SD on PSN? $32. To buy a Bluray disc in HD? $30. What’s the point in digital download if you can’t be competitive on price? Is it just that some people have an instant gratification thing on that exact show at that exact moment?
The only thing where I’m preferring digital so far to physical copies is the PSP. Mainly because the downloaded copies are faster than the physical ones, have minimal lag, etc.
