It’s been no secret that Sony had been planning to rollout a video download service for the Playstation Portable – without PC or PS3 support – and it’s gone out and delivered its promise in Japan.

Japanese enthusiasts can now download anime episodes, movie titles and even rent content through the service. Most anime episodes go at about $2 a pop; movies at about $5.50 on standard quality, $6.50 on HD. Downloads can also be transferred to a PS3.

There has been no official announcement yet as to availability in Europe and the US, unfortunately.
