In an interview with Gamasutra, senior VP of marketing for PlayStation Peter Dille told Gamasutra that a direct download movie service for PSP and PS3 will be coming very soon, and that the company is actively working on the service. The comment was framed within a discussion of the PSP's new form factor.

"I think what might convince (people who havenít picked up a PSP) would be the advent of a service that allows them to put content onto the PSP in an easier fashion," said Dille. "Thereís been a lot of speculation about when weíll offer our video download service on PSP or PS3, and I think that could be more of a killer application to get people off the fence."

Commenting about when we might see something, Dille said, "We didnít have any announcements about that at the show, but what I can tell you is weíre working on it, we see that itís critical, not just for PSP but also for PS3, and itís something we know is super important to get right."

"We wonít have a second chance to make a first impression," Dille confessed, "If we launch it and itís not right, weíre going to get creamed. So we want to make sure we get the consumer experience right, get the right content, and weíre working really hard on it. And I donít think weíre talking about years, I think this is something we could get behind really soon."
