Talking Portable movie files to be included on future BDs!

http://kotaku.com/gaming/blu+ray-sho...vds-227862.php

So apparently they could put a portable (PSP version!) version of say Pirates of the Carribbean on the Pirates of the Carribbean Blu-ray disc. That would be sweet.

I don't ever plan on getting a portable gaming system (even though I like the PSP) because I can't imagine when I would use it, but I would like to have a portable version of the movie I bought to play on my MP3 player.

That sounds great. They're really making a lot out of the PSP/PS3/Blu-ray inter-relationships.

Makes sense. The best counter to piracy has historically been to make the files too big to practically copy. BD50 currently makes downloads painfull enough. Then to keep the consumer happy why not provide a LQ version on the same disk.

You still want the HD version but having both ends the vast majority of the DRM complaints.

Nothing too revolutionary, but a nice benefit. There are programs now that let you make "back-up" copies of your movies you already own and then convert them into a PSP playable format.

Take it with a grain of salt guys. Sony threw the key words in there.

"Probably".....and "may add"

If this does happen, wouldn't you need to have a Blu-ray drive on your computer in order to get the file off of the disc and transfer it to your memory card, or am I missing something? Is this something that is only going to be catered to those with PS3s as their BD drives?

well PS3 will more then likely be able to do it and yes, like anything else, you will probably need a Blu-ray player so you can take the files off

I just notice this and that is really cool. Maybe even be able transmit from PS3 to PSP.

By the way I just signed up for Amazon Prime and got both Pirates for $37

Can't see what the fuss is about - people have been doing this for years anyway!
