People like movies. People love free. …nothing wrong here.
Starting this Saturday, it seems the PlayStation Store will be updated with one free movie rental as part of a new "Midnight Movies" promotion. Provided you log in between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. EST, you can download the featured film for free and watch it that night; perhaps it could act as a nice complement to all your game playing. However, according to the official word from Sony, this promotion probably only applies to US PSN subscribers, so European PS3 owners might be left out in the cold on this one. The Sony update can be found at Joystiq :
"Halloween is here! This week you can find your favorite monsters, zombies and blood-thirsty creatures all in one place. Get incredible discounts on monster movies like Let the Right One In, Dawn of the Dead, The Fog and many more! Plus, you can rent Bram Stoker's Dracula for FREE when you visit the Halloween Horror Flicks collection on PlayStation®Store, Saturday, 10/16, from 5 PM PDT through 3 AM PDT 10/17!"
Yep, Bram Stoker's Dracula is first on the list; it'll be interesting to see the other movies that arrive for free. We're also willing to bet that PlayStation Plus members will receive some sort of movie-related bonus, if they haven't already. This, combined with today's Netflix announcement , helps to solidify Sony's machine as a diverse entertainment hub.
