Default Amazon Instant Video App. on PS3 is Live.

(As I posted in the Netflix thread)

And with this, Netflix is holding on by a thread. (Concerning my subscription that is.LOL.)

PS3: The First Console to Offer Amazon Instant Video

Hi again, PlayStation community. I’m here to bring some good news today: Amazon Instant Video is available now on PlayStation Network, making the PS3 the first and only video game console to offer the service! Head on over to the TV/Video Services category of the XMB, where you can download and install the new Amazon Instant Video app right now for free. Once you launch the app, you’ll have instant access to thousands of streaming and downloadable movies and TV shows for rental or purchase. There are more than 120,000 commercial-free movies and TV shows for rental or purchase, including new releases, classic favorites, major TV shows, full seasons and even new episodes of some of your favorite TV shows the day after they air. Many of the DVD and Blu-Ray titles on Amazon.com are also offered on Amazon Instant Video available through this new app.

If you’re an Amazon Prime member (I am!), you’ll also be able to watch as many of the more than 17,000 Prime Instant Videos as you can handle, at no additional cost. If you’re not yet an Amazon Prime member, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial right there within the app or just sign up—it’s $79 per year and totally worth it.
Video at the jump.

I've been hoping this would happen soon. Amazon Prime is a fantastic deal without the free instant videos, but now that I finally have easy access to it I'm excited to give it a better go.

Yeah, it's an amazing service. They just keep adding things to it: free Kindle books, 2-day shipping, and the streaming videos. It's a wonderful value.

I thought that this was an inevitability IMO. Sony has been really pushing to get all of the major streaming services and Amazon has been really wanting to get their content platforms onto as much **** as possible. Add in the fact that this was already on my Sony blu-ray player and has been put onto various BRAVIA models, it was only natural to conclude that this was going to happen sooner or later. I'm glad that it was sooner.

That said, I'm still quite surprised that Sony has not yet put out an app for Crackle and YouTube considering that those platforms can be used on the PlayStation 3.

The only thing I'm surprised about, is that it took this long to come out.
