Sony today announced an advancement to the Blu-ray format, whereby users can now transfer a Digital Copy of the movie directly from the Blu-ray Disc to their PSP via a PlayStation 3. This new technology eliminates the need to include the PSP file on a separate DVD-ROM, packaged with the Blu-ray, which would normally contain the Digital Copy files. This feature will launch with the November 10th Blu-ray release of Godzilla and will be included on select releases going forward, including The Ugly Truth.
Rich Marty of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment commented, “This latest enhancement to Blu-ray and Digital Copy demonstrates the versatility of the format… [and] showcases the unique advantage that the PlayStation 3 brings to the Blu-ray consumer.”
The enhanced Digital Copy feature is the latest addition to Sony Pictures’ portfolio of Blu-ray Disc features, which also include BD-Live, movieIQ (real-time movie information), social networking through cinechat, multiplayer games, an interactive video editing suite, as well as soundtrack playlists, e-Movie Cash and more.
