PSP Digital Copy Included on Sony Blu-ray Releases

Posted September 29, 2009 08:28 AM by Josh Dreuth

PlayStation PortableBeginning with the November 10th Blu-ray releases of 'Godzilla' and 'The Ugly Truth', Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will include a digital copy especially for the PSP on select Blu-ray disc releases. The announcement comes just days before the release the PSP Go, Sony's latest iteration of their portable gaming platform which will - for the first time - have no removable media option.

The PSP digital copy will only be accessible on the PS3, and will only play on the PSP. For some releases, like 'The Ugly Truth', a separate DVD will be included for the PC digital copy.

Rich Marty, Vice President of New Business Development at Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, commented, "This latest enhancement to Blu-ray and Digital Copy demonstrates the versatility of the format and its ability to deliver a multi-platform video experience. It also showcases the unique advantage that the PlayStation 3 brings to the Blu-ray consumer."

Pretty sure they already included it on at least one Blu-ray set, but I can't remember what it was. At the time I thought it was going to be standard on everything afterwards, but it seemed to be an anomaly.

I frankly don't care because I'll never use them anyway, despite having a PSP.

I used the digital copy on my PSP that came with Hancock last year. The problem is the action scenes in the movie are too fast and I had a lot of pixels show up--kind of like a bad HDTV. That digital copy also only worked with a PC (I have a Mac) and transferring the movie isn't as easy as iTunes.

While I appreciate the extra effort the movies will eat up the memory card(s) fairly quickly. I think is geared more for the new PSP coming out. Oh well.

I'm guessing the PSP version of the film will actually be on the Blu-ray and won't come on a separate disc.

Maybe I've been under a rock or too much of a home theater purist but how much is this feature used by consumers? The last thing I want to do is watch a movie on a hand held device, especially if it sucks up battery life like no one's business.

This is the feature they advertised like a year ago-- the psp copy is ON the blu ray and can be copied from the PS3 to the PSP. As a PSP owner, I think this is an awesome feature Sony should've started awhile ago. Now if only Sony would put out more movies I actually want to see...

Just was looking on the ONE Sony title I have that has a Digital Copy, which is The International, and the insert says that its for PC, PSP and iTunes. Hopefully they stick with the iTunes ones, though, cause I need that as a Mac guy.

ehtamgnie, I'm with you man - but last time I tried to pass my 50-inch DLP through the x-ray machine at the airport the guards got awfully cross with me.

About time!

Judging by the CES 2008 demo, the transfer process from PS3 to PSP is very straightforward.

I am all about Digital Copies because it's the best you can get for your iPod, converting yourself takes time, knowledge, effort, and a GOOD quality copy to begin with, ripping a DVD to an iPod format sucks because DVD is already compressed and ripping compresses more, then you have to convert. Plus if I am gonna buy the movie on Blu Ray I want a digital copy with it because that saves me the outrageous price Apple charges on their store. I just hope they continue to include iPod format and not just PSP because I have an iPod and never have and never will own a Playstation brand product.

I have a bunch of movies downloaded from PSN that I put on a 16GB memory stick for my Amarillo Texas Trip and I found out the hard way that they sometimes get glitchy in certain spots.

(For me)

Deathproof goes into slowmo during the car chase at the end.
Empire Records freezes up about 10 minutes in (if I fast forward past that it's okay)
Lost In translation had all sorts of audio drop outs.

So on and so on.

Who the heck watches movies on a PSP or iPod? Maybe I'm getting old (okay, I am getting old), but why watch a movie on a two inch screen? I don't know about these kids today, with their ipods and rock music.

The screen on the PSP is pretty large for a handheld and provides a very good image. If you have a PSP 2000 or PSP 3000 you can even plug it into a TV and watch a video or play a game through the TV. However, trying to watch a feature length movie on it is difficult for me. The one time I tried it glare was an issue, holding it was annoying and I felt like I was getting hypnotized focusing on such a small screen for so long. I use my PSP almost exclusively as an MP3 player.

As long as they aren't PSP only I have no problem with this. I'm an iTunes guy.

Oh geez says Archie Bunker... More digital copies I gotta keep up with... Here is an idea why not put the movie and extras on one blu-ray disc and give me the poster artwork for the cover....

Oh please can I get the edition that has the dvd digital copy and the psp digital copy and the extras on another disc....
