Gaming console makers are starting to offer access to much more than just Netflix these days. Now Sony has announced that HBO content will be offered on the PlayStation 3 and PSP.

These two consoles are the first gaming platforms to provide access to HBO original programming in the U.S. PlayStation owners who want to take a break from Final Fantasy XIII can navigate over to the PlayStation Network Store purchase episodes of current HBO shows like True Blood. Or you can catch up on old favorites like Flight of the Conchords and The Wire instantly.

Unfortunately, not everything you'd want is ready yet (i.e. there are only two seasons of Entourage available so far). But Sony says that additional episodes and titles will be added weekly, so keep checking.

  • PS3 has Been Hacked!

    There are even hacks to get "the other OS" back. Most people don't realize that the reason Sony is attempting to prevent the use of "Other OS" is that the PS3 was hacked by none other than GeoHot (famed iphone jail breaker).

    Sony is in self destruct mode with SCE with Stringer in charge.

    HBO? .....why would you pay more for HBO from Sony than what you pay for it through your cable company? PSP...? maybe but then you're faced with worse DRM (Digital Rectal Manipulation) than with Apple's TV and movie downloads. At least on iTunes I can download and view them on most any platform. If I get it on PS3, I can only view on my PS3. If I get Yellow Light of Death? Sony just says SORRY..... you should have bought a Xbox 360!

    What a waste...... so much potential in Krazy Ken Kutaragi's original vision killed by a fat freak newscaster wrongly appointed head of all of Sony! ......and what does he do? Fire Ken and hire his brother to head Sony BMG. Wonder where the Root Kit came from? ......yes Sir Stringnutz's Crazier than Ken Brother!
