Amazon Prime’s “Amazon Instant Video” pack-in is now getting a little cooler and a little more of a threat to services like Netflix. Amazon Instant Video is now available on the PS3,. Sony's mystery addition to the PlayStation 3's streaming video service lineup is a mystery no more: it's Amazon Instant Video, the online retailer's collection of an estimated 120,000 movies.

Amazon Prime streaming service will now be available through the PlayStation 3 gaming console.

Sony announced that it will be beefing up its video content on Wednesday, adding the service to its line-up that includes other popular streamers such as NetFlix and Hulu Plus.

Jack Buser, Sony's Senior Director for PlayStation Digital Platforms, posted in a blog that there are more than 120,000 movies and TV shows on Amazon Prime that will now become available through the PlayStation 3.

For users looking to rent videos from Amazon, they will now have to link their Amazon account to PlayStation and verify it through their computer, the same way it is done with Netflix and Hulu Plus.

This new partnership between the world's largest internet retailer and one of the largest companies in the video game industry comes at a time when its main rival, Microsoft, is also rapidly expanding its video streaming content by acquiring HBO Go, MLB.TV and Xfinity.

Microsoft also recently stated that Xbox 360 owners use their consoles more for entertainment purposes than gaming, making the acquiring of streaming services a top priority for the company.

Both Sony and Microsoft are expected to reveal new consoles within the next two years, and with the trend of technology moving towards an all-in-one entertainment device, the companies are probably researching more efficient ways to incorporate these services into their next-generation systems.

The two companies are also rumored to be eliminating physical games by creating streaming services for them along with online markets for downloading.
