PlayStation 3 gets Amazon Instant Video ... kinda out of nowhere


After the hosts of the PlayStation Blogcast teased a new video service on their last show, we've been anxiously waiting for news on what said service could be. Much like the stealth Blogcast tease, Amazon Instant Video quietly appeared on the PlayStation 3's cross-media bar today under the video header.

Rather than being implemented via system update, the service is a clickable icon in the XMB's video section that prompts a 19MB download. Individual films and TV shows are available for rental and purchase individually at varying costs, though Amazon Prime members are given full access based on their annual subscription. Looks like we finally have to buy a media remote for the ol' PS3, eh?
