Q: What comes out of a vending machine?

A: Drinks, Snacks, Blu-Rays, Games

What!? Games and Blu-Rays don’t come from vending machines. They will do by Christmas. Stuff is reporting that Sony and Universal have teamed up to create ‘POP’. ‘POP’ machines are “entertainment vending machines” which are to be “distributed across the UK”. The machines will apparently be put “in gyms, cinemas, universities and travel stations” this winter.

These machines will be selling PS3 games, DVD’s and Blu-Rays as well as offering direct downloads to your MP3/MP4 player or memory stick. Quite cool, although these machines have been available in the U.S. for some time.

I can certainly see these being a feature of town centres e.t.c. across the UK. If this is a success I can see Microsoft and Nintendo following suit.

Don’t forget the continent where they sell not just any drinks but alcoholic drinks, hmmm beer. Should I have a nice Fanta lemon or a San Miguel? lol They can do that over there where they haven’t got the problems we have with binge drinking. lol

Nice. Personally I don’t want to be putting £40 worth of pound coins into a vending machine 🙂
