I thought that this type of thing was supposed to be coming right from the start of Blu-ray discs. Will I just need to buy a game to get the complete associated film or would you just get cut scene type video incorporated into a game? What will this mean to pricing? Despite my misgivings above I think this is a very promising development.

My understanding is that this would be a separate option, like a bundle. You could buy just the movie, or just the game, or you could buy both the game and the movie on one disk, presumably for a bit less than buying the game and the movie individually.
Given Blu-ray's space, this should be possible. It'd be nice, though a whole lot of games made from movies aren't worth playing...
This is good news the more mainstream blu-ray becomes the cheaper discs will be in the near future, thus cheaper productions costs and cheaper games for us, and hey we might be able to pickup burners and discs for ps3 backups very soon.
