We've known Amazon and Sony's VOD plans since they were in diapers, but today Amazon has introduced their promised instant-view capabilities to their Video on Demand service for both Macs and PCs, and rolled out a beta for Sony Bravia Link owners to start testing-allowing you to pair your TV with your Amazon account for instant purchases and rentals. Your purchases are also automatically added to "Your Video Library" for instant streams from any web browser. [Amazon]

This sounds awesome on paper, and I have a Bravia that is internet link compatible, but why the heck is it a $300 add on???? What is my value when I have a $400 Sony add on right underneath the TV (my PS3) that could easily handle the same task?
