CES 08: Blu-Ray Interactive

At CES today, Sony again continued promoting the Blu-Ray format, by showing many new interactive features to come of it. These features include downloadable content from a service called "Blu-Ray Live" (real original :-P) and ways to transfer Blu-Ray movies from your PS3 to your PSP.

Now, the PS3 will be able to transfer a 2 hour Blu-Ray movie from the PS3 to the PSP, within 2 minutes with remarkable picture quality. Of course, you can't expect it to be as good as on your HD TV, but still pretty good.

That's the jist of it, but considering Blu-Ray movies will eventually get as big 300GB (or at least disc storage will be), I am a bit skeptical about how the PSP will store or support it. The demo only showed a 20 minute clip being transferred, so how this will all play out.... well, we'll have to wait and see, I suppose....
