Hybrid Game/Feature Film Blu-ray Discs Coming to PS3, Real Soon

Sony has revealed the latest effort to boost sales of its PlayStation 3 console – Blu-ray discs with films and games on the same disc. Finally we can realize the power of blu-ray.

"We are actively pushing, and the way that we see the future is that the movie and the game are placed on the same disc," John Koller, director of hardware marketing for the PS3, told Video Business. "There are a lot of developers who say, we have this game based on a movie, wouldn't it be great to marry these concepts? We will definitely see this stuff this year."

As it currently stands, Sony reportedly plans to offer an entire movie on the same disc as a PS3 game. PSPs would also factor into the proceedings, as gamers could transfer and then watch the film on their handhelds. Sony expects two to three titles to ship using the hybrid method this year.
