UK PoP Machines To Spit Out Games


Have a late-night hankering for some PS3 games, movies or music? For the right price, this unusual vending device will quench your thirst for electronic entertainment.

European vending machines are about to get a hell of a lot more exciting in the near future, thanks to a new partnership between Sony Entertainment and Universal. The two entertainment behemoths are teaming up to unleash PoP “instant entertainment 24/7” dispensers in the UK, according to Stuff Magazine, which unveiled the product at the recent Stuff Live Expo.

Instead of tasty snacks, the unusual vending machine will dish out shrink wrapped PS3 titles, DVDs, CDs, and Blu-ray Discs. Customers will also be able to use a variety of flash storage media to purchase and digitally download music and movies or download them directly to their audio/video playing devices.

The PoP machines are operated via a handy touch screen interface and will allow people to meet their entertainment needs at all hours of the day. A total of 150 movies are expected to be available at launch. While there’s no mention of releasing the PoP machines in the U.S., don’t rule out the possibility. Americans are just as hungry for entertainment.
