Last week Sony revealed to Video Business the next PS3/Blu-ray marketing strategy. This year you will see a Blu-ray/Videogame combo disc released, maybe even three. Sony’s trojan horse, the gaming console that plays Blu-ray Discs, is still the bastion of hope.
In the article PS3 rep John Koller talked about marrying the concept of making a game from a movie by offering a disc that contains both. If the marriage is confirmed, we may be looking at combo disc with an MSRP somewhere between $70 and $80.
Will gamers pay an extra $15-$20 on top of a $60 gaming disc for the Blu-ray movie? We’ll have to wait and see. Something to peak your interest may be the ability to transfer the movie to a PlayStation Portable.
