    General games Sony Demos Copying From Blu-ray Disc

    The concept of copying a lower-resolution version of a film from a packaged media disc to a portable device is not new--in fact, late last year, Fox and Warner released the first standard definition titles to offer this capability (on Live Free, Die Hard and Harry Potter: The Order of the Phoenix, respectively).

    Sony today demonstrated the next level of disc copying. At the company's booth at CES, Sony demonstrated how you could put a Blu-ray Disc movie into a Playstation 3 and copy the film to a Playstation Portable or a Memory Stick. "This way, you can have a portable copy you can take with you," explains David Bishop, president of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

    "There was always the promise of greater interactivity. You'll see that coming in the new year," Bishop added. In addition to the PSP copying example, Sony also demonstrated how you could download ring tones and new content to a BD Live player, using Men in Black as the example.

    BD Live is proving to be a big catchphrase at the show: Panasonic announced its BD Live player yesterday, Fox showcased an early version of its Alien vs. Predator multiplayer game at the Blu-ray Disc Association's booth, and Sony showed its interactive Men in Black trivia game. The game was being played by two people in two locations on a Playstation 3.

    Sweet! I hope they have a new firmware that allows you to copy all current Blu-ray discs to PSP

    And give us UMD writables and writers to put these demos on UMDs.

    Seriously Sony, how about giving a rat's ass about your formats?

    Hey $n!pR, thought you'd find this useful.

    Nintendo might have invented console-to-handheld connectivity, but Sony finally made it useful. According to PC World, Sony demonstrated the new technology at CES that will make it possible for owners to copy a Blu-Ray movie to their PSP.

    In an update coming later this year, PS3 owners will be able to automatically make a lower quality version of any High Def Blu-Ray movie in their library and save it to PSP or Memory stick.

    This is sweet because the PSP has been notoriously tedious to encode for and you won't have to buy any more UMD's. Not only that, but watching movies on the PSP via memory stick increases battery life compared to watching them via UMD.

    While Sony might have been all excited about Skype on a PSP, TheFeed is ready to rock some portable Blade Runner and 300.

    No word on exactly when the update will be available
