Associated Press claims Sony is in talks with movie studios over a video service for the PlayStation 3.
Citing studio executives who asked to remain anonymous because of the sensitivity of the negotiations, The Los Angeles Times newspaper reported Monday that Sony could launch the service as early as summer.

A Sony spokesman declined to comment.

"We don't have anything new to announce at this time," Sony spokesman Patrick Seybold said in an e-mail.

But a Sony marketing executive said in a blog post last week that news could come soon.

"Ultimately the goal of the PlayStation Network service will be to break through the overwhelming clutter of digital media to give you the TV, movies and gaming content you want. More on this very soon ...," Sony's Peter Dille wrote on its PlayStation blog.
