I was thinking about this over the weekend, and how we haven’t heard anything more on this. I did a story about this back in Jan 07. Will this just be a firmware upgrade or will the blu-ray discs need to have those portable files on it? Also has Sony completely forgot about this cool feature?? This would be a big boost for blu-ray I think. Being able to watch blu-ray movies on the go with the PSP, iPhone, or other media devices. Of course piracy is a issue, but hopefully they find a way to prevent that.
Sony Pictures Entertainment will include portable files on Blu-Ray DVDs that can be transferred without a download. Sony may add the feature this year. It’s not currently part of anything on our current release schedule, but we’ll probably roll it out sometime this year.
