What more do you want from your PlayStation? Sony thinks it’s music, video and the ability to transfer all of this content between devices, including the PlayStation Portable (PSP).

Don’t call your couch space just; the first step is to have additional content available via Sony’s PlayStation Network, says the Financial Times. That would be nice, since Microsoft already offers high-def TV and film content on its Xbox Live service. 

When that’s actually going to happen is still a mystery. But when it does, then the company will work on the compatibility phase.

“We are trying to get our devices to talk to each other efficiently. PlayStation Network should migrate from gadget to gadget. But initially it starts with PlayStation devices and then to TV and beyond. That’s the goal,” said Sir Howard Stringer, Sony chief executive, during an interview in Moscow. Sounds like a good one too. The new offerings could give the unit a much-needed holiday push.

Currently, the Playstation Network offers a few freebies, including game demos, premium game content and movie trailers.

Sony also recently announced a digital video recorder add-on, which will allow users to record TV content directly to the PS3’s hard drive.
