281w ago - 0komp0 has posted a video on YouTube showing his European PS3 connected to gain access to Sony's US Video Store. He hasn't tried purchasing any content yet, and the video below is just to show that it is possible for Europeans to access the Video Store.
To quote: After watching E3 live via a friends stream I heard about the New Video Store for PS3 Owners. It sounded amazing and I planned to purchase content. However the days past and the news comes that its not available to us EU-based PS3 owners!
Here is a proof of concept video to show it can be accessed from other countries. Thanks for screwing us EU users AGAIN SONY!!!

285w ago - A new menu option has appeared under account management on the PS3 which suggests a movie store is coming up soon.
If you follow this path: XMB > Account Management > Account Management > Activate System, you will see a new option to activate the system for different types of content, for now you can only select game but previously you could only activate the system for all content.
This change suggests that more types of content are coming to the PS3 very soon - perhaps the downtime was for a server upgrade?
With Firmware 2.4 and its host of tasty features due soon, we're quite excited (as usual) about the PS3 this year. We're fully expecting a raft of announcements for the video store and associated partners at E3.
