- Sony's John Koller
has confirmed that hybrid Blu-ray discs that contain both a PS3 game and movie are on the cards.
Koller noted there are a lot of developers who say they have a game based on a particular movie and would love to fit them together.
Apparently, we should see these hybrid discs coming out this year... to quote:
The details of the hybrid PS3 game/movie product are still being finalized, but the idea is that a PS3 videogame disc would also provide access to an entire feature film.
Plus, consumers would be able to transfer the film for view on the PlayStation Portable, similar to the way Sony Pictures Home Entertainment's digital copies can be transferred to the PSP.
"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," said John Koller, director of hardware marketing for the PS3.
"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."
