This is a neat feature that I found one day while fiddling with someone’s PlayStation 3. If you get a movie in the play station movie store or the PlayStation instant movie queue, one of the audio language tracks is the audio description track found on the DVD.

NOTE: the track will not be called audio description. You have to cycle through all the English language tracks.
