Sony unveiled its PlayStation Go mobile media device at E3 today and extended its video delivery service to its line of PlayStation mobile devices. The slimmed-down Go doesn’t use physical media (no shiny little discs!); instead all content is downloaded to the device via Wi-Fi. At the same time, Sony announced a number of new partners to its PlayStation Network video service, including Showtime, Starz Media, G4 and E!. All said and done, the service will have nearly 1,900 movies and 9,400 TV episodes, and according to Multichannel News, 35 percent of the movies are in an HD format. The Go will be available this fall.
Sony’s press conference was certainly lighter on video-related news than Microsoft’s was yesterday, when the Redmond giant unveiled tighter integration with Netflix along with streaming of 1080p movies.
