Rumour: PS3 Games with BD Movies? |

The folks over at HighDef Digest give no source at all, unless you count “industry sources” as a source. But the rumour they came up with is interesting. Not that I believe it has any credibility, but because I think it’s interesting, do I mention it here.

So what do you think? Do you think Sony will bundle BD movies in with some of their games? If so, A-list games with A-list movies? Or mix and match it up a bit? I know I wouldn’t complain if they gave me Spider-Man 2 with a game I bought.

Sony to Bundle Free BD Movies with Games?

  • It would make sense to do a Movie / Licenced game of that movie package. I don’t know why it hasn’t been done before.

  • Because most licenced games are released within the cinema release of a movie, where no DVD is yet released…

    But with other games/movies its different… Like Reservoir Dogs (which the game sucks really bad) or The Godfather (which I never played). It would be a really nice opportunity,,,

    The problem I see is that if they did a game/movie combo they would have to use a DL BR disc. Movies are taking up the limit a 25 GB BR disc has. I am not saying that their isn’t a possible combo that could fit on one single layer disc, but I wouldn’t count on it.

    Sony could very easily make this happen though. They own a large portion of the movie industry and with many early adapters owning HDTVs the pay-off could be huge. Most people say that DVDs look fine on HDTV, but without comparing the two on your own set it is hard to see the difference.

    Fact is their is a huge difference between HDTV and SDTV. Their is also a huge difference between DVD and Next Gen DVDs. If Sony can make the public aware of the difference they could easily win the next gen DVD format war. They will have the most players on the market in the next months. They just need to find ways to get their gaming community to purchase BR movies.

    I personally haven’t bought a next gen movie player yet because the pleasure/pain(expense) isn’t their for me yet. Once the players come down in price and more importantly the movies become cheaper I am all in.
