Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has announced a partnership with leading online film library MUBI, to bring to PlayStation 3 a new service that will break open the world of independent, international and classic cinema, and introduce PS3 owners to movies outside the mainstream.
MUBI will be a free, downloadable application that gives PS3 owners the key to the ever-expanding film library of MUBI – an incredible online “cinemateque” for movie lovers, packed to the rafters with acclaimed independent, foreign and classic films to stream on demand.
The application will be available to download this Autumn and will offer more than 300 films at launch from directors from Audiard to Zeferelli; and they’re all going to be available to stream directly to your PS3.
Hope the prices aren’t bloated as PS Video Store!
