CES 2008: Live from Sony Pictures Conference

Posted January 7, 2008 03:03 PM by Josh Dreuth

CESSony Pictures today showcased upcoming Blu-ray interactive features for their titles. One feature will allow viewers to send a ring tone to their phone from the movie. Additionally, PSP owners will be happy to hear that a portable copy will be available on the disc encoded specifically for the PSP. Also shown was a Men In Black network trivia game. More later.

Portable copy of Men in Black?

Or for all upcoming Sony releases on BD?

All very interesting -- but no so useful. The number of people who would like to access these features must be fairly small.

@ mikesoba: I disagree about the usefulness. As a PSP owner, I welcome the ability to play the movie on my PSP without having to pay for the same movie twice. Instead I can watch the Blu-ray, and copy the PSP version to a memory stick when I want to view it on there (e.g., when flying).

Yeah title announcements need to come. New Line needs to fill up their schedule.

I would agree, but then how do we explain HD DVD fans?

OMG.......portable version for the PSP, I can't wait..... I remember when they were talking about this a long time ago, and was beginning to think that it wouldn't happen.

@richteer - You would definitely fall in the "some" category. I have a PSP but have no interest in watching movies on it - I'd rather see a portable HD player at this point, for the same reasons you mention.

I wonder if the PSP encode will work on the video Walkmans. That would be killer!!

Does that mean a UMD in the BD box as well? Or is it a file transfer thing? Or are they talking about
ring tones? Also how do they get it to talk to the phone?
It will be very interesting to see how this all works.

Also, glad to hear about Men in Black!

I welcome the psp version. they all ready have dvds that come with a digital copy for your computer (i guess they figure if they give you a drm ridden copy for free when you buy it legit, you are less likely to pirate it) so why not? It saves me money from buying a second copy.

Ringtones are defintely better than being able to order toilet paper!

I would expect its not a free UMD, but a version of the movie that can be accessed from the BD, saved onto a Memory stick and then viewed on the PSP. If this was true, it would be just another huge reason for me to get a PSP, assuming most/all new releases carried this feature, or if there was software to make this availabe for older movies as well

I assume what they're basically allowing is an SDDVD rip of the movie onto a PSP (and SDDVD quality is more than adequate on the tiny screen) which adds tremendous value to the PSP.

Imagine it this way, with the new PSP having video output capability, you can now take an SD version to any tv (in the kids room, on trips, in the bedroom, etc) without having to deal with combo discs.

"Ringtones are defintely better than being able to order toilet paper!"

Speak for yourself, Universal sells toilet paper in such mass quantities that I can buy Quilted Aloe Vera for a song (S&H extra).

Also works great for those of us with a PS3 in the bathroom, should we realize we forgot to restock!

Well if they are burning a copy of the blu movie I guess I can finally toss out those few UMD's? hehehe not that I thought that would take off but cmon some of these are going for 5 dollars nowadays. It would be awesome to have a copy of my blu's for use on my psp.

I am very interested in this PSP version thing. I have a PS3 and a PSP, however, I don't want to go out and buy a bunch of memory sticks though either. That means I may have to only carry around one movie at a time.

The PSP feature is GREAT!!! I hope more companies other than Sony Pictures support this eventually. I hope it will allow you to rip it(or whatever) onto PC or PS3, that would be very nice!

The PSP encodes is awesome news! I have been trying to come up with a way to encode my Blus for playback on my PSP, but nothing I tried was viable. If I could copy a file from my PS3 to my PSP and play it wherever, I'd be a happy camper indeed.

Where's the iPod love? I don't own a PSP. Ah, I see. They want me to buy a PSP. Very clever, Sony!
