CES 2008: Blu-ray movies to PSP

Submitted by: OSiRiS 341 @ 01:12 PM | Tuesday, January 8, 2008 | (url: http://www.gamesi...)

At the company's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Sony demonstrated Blu-ray movie discs embedded with a lower-resolution version of the film for portable devices.

Because the lower-resolution version is permanently stored on the purchased Blu-ray disc, the portable version would not need to be downloaded online for a separate fee and there would be no expiration date. Although it was not specifically demonstrated, it is possible that the portable version could also be played on an iPod or a Zune.

sure, but my understanding is its just a separate low res file on the same blu-ray disc.

The idea is that, using a PSP and a PS3, you can use your Memory stick to download your blu-ray movie onto the PSP. The advantage is that you'd only have to buy the movie once...no more UMD movies, basically.
