From gamesindustry.biz:

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan has confirmed that a new download service offering movies on the PlayStation 3 is set to launch shortly.

The service will go live in the US this summer, according to Kaz Hirai, with a roll-out in Japan and Europe at later dates. Official timings are expected next month.

Note: Screenshots over at famitsu.com suggest the price for renting a movie could be $5.99

5.99 is not a bad price, especially if the movies were 1080p. My only concern though is it too little too late? Microsoft is supposedly in talks with Netflix to expand the already popular Xbox Live download service.
