301w ago - Courtesy of Ro Hernandez (PLAYSTATION Store Team) today:

As promised, we're delivering many (most, really) of the videos seen at today's PlayStation E3 press conference to the PLAYSTATION Store for your enjoyment.

As announced at the event, the video download service will hit the store tonight, and will *not* require a firmware upgrade. Recent PSP Firmware v4.05 also enabled compatibility with the video service, for taking TV shows and movies on the go.

As far as video of the entire press conference is concerned, we're working on converting that video now, and will post it on the Store when it's complete, so you can see everything we showcased today.

We hope you enjoy this fresh E3 update, and we'll have more for you as the week progresses.
