We have often wondered why the popular and free video service Crackle has not been made available on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. Perhaps because it is free… Anyway that has changed this morning, as Sony has added the service in PlayStation Home – it’s virtual rest stop on the PS3. Sony has partnered up the service to bring free full-length movies – including the wonderful Final Fantasy: Advent Children – to PlayStation Home. Crackle is a free movie and TV show streaming service available via web browsers or a number of other devices – most notably Roku’s various boxes.
Home users in the United States can now watch Crackle movies in Home via the LOOT EOD Theater, Sunset Yacht, and the Hollywood Hills House.
While Crackle’s selection is smaller than Netflix, the service is free. And there are plenty of decent – albeit older – movies available for your viewing pleasure.
The video to your left shows how it works within Home.
