I have to admit that I'm a huge PlayStation fan. I know a lot of people go on and on about their Xbox but for me, it's all about Sony's pride and joy. Last week Sony Network Entertainment International contacted us about some Marvel animated shows that are now available on PlayStation Network.
 
Awesome video games, Blu-rays and now Marvel cartoons can be played on the PlayStation. What shows are available?
  • The Super Hero Squad Show
  • X-Men: Evolution
  • Wolverine and the X-Men
  • Iron Man: Extremis Motion Comic
  • Spider-Woman: Agent of SWORD Motion Comic
  • Astonishing X-Men: Gifted Motion Comic

Those that buy the "Director's Edition" of the Iron Man: Extremis series in comic book shops will be able to download the corresponding episode free from PlayStation Network when it's released.
 
Shows are available in SD or HD by navigating TV Shows>Networks>Marvel within the PlayStation Store. For more information, check with the PlayStation Network on your PS3.

"Spider-man, Spider-man, Radio-active Spider-man"
 
Spider-Man: The Animated Series was one of my favourites. If it's not on there I'm not interested, not that the service is available for us UKers because apparently we're not worth the effort.

Are these free to view? If so, I'm sure I'll be checking some out.

That's a great step forward for this sort of stuff and for the PS3 / Sony in particular. Thanks for the heads up ;)

I don't have a PS3, but I have a PSP.  Will it be possible to get the shows for it?  If not....... well, I don't know.  To uTorrent, I guess.

Actually, now that I think about it, I've already seen some of these on the PSN.

Yeah, it seems no American companies want our cash... Oh well, sooner or later someone will realize that I want to pay them for entertainment...
