WoW players: we have all your patch 2.4 news!

Blu-ray to PSP movies about 1GB in size, DRM protected


Want some more details on the upcoming ability to transfer movies from Blu-ray? Gizmodo got some. According to the site, "the movies are around 1GB (standard def and PSP-optimized) and take about 3-5 minutes to download via USB to the Memory Stick Duo in your PSP." Obviously, DRM will be utilized when a movie is copied to the system, although exact details haven't been worked out yet. We're assuming it'll work similarly to the DRM used for downloadable games from the PLAYSTATION Store.

Unfortunately, there isn't an exact timeframe set for this feature. It's some time this year -- and that's all we get. [Update: More images can be found at Watch Impress.]

Why would anyone bother? It's much easier to just rip the DVD-video release of the same movie...

Does this mean we'll see 480x272 resolution video off of the memory stick???? I hope so.

Or am I late to the party?... is there already a way to watch 480x272 resolution on the memstick?

It's too bad... i really liked the UMD format. It was cool... like the miniDisc.

Interesting point: if it's "DVD resolution" (e.g. bigger than the PSP screen res), does that mean it will work at full 480p over the PSP-2000's TV out? Would have semi-interesting DRM implications, I guess...
