Amazon Instant Video comes to PS3

Seemingly out of nowhere, Amazon Instant Video has hit the PS3. Like other media plugins for the console, all you need to do is go to the “TV/Video Services” tab and select the Amazon icon to download a small client. After registering your PS3 on your Amazon account, you’ll have access to all previously purchased video content, any Prime Instant Video if you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber, and the ability to rent or buy tens of thousands of movies and television shows.

No other gaming console has adopted Amazon’s streaming solution yet and this announcement came with essentially no warning. Nonetheless, this puts the PS3 in a much better position in an increasingly heated video content fight with Microsoft.
