SOE Picks Emergent
Some PSN games to germinate from Gamebryo.
by Greg Miller

January 7, 2008 - If you're anxiously awaiting new original titles for the PlayStation Network, Sony is bringing in help to satisfy your needs. Today, Sony Online Entertainment announced that it has selected Gamebryo, the Emergent Elements engine used in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Fallout 3, to create some upcoming PSN titles. Sony described the partnership in a release as a way to bring developers the tools they need to create games faster than ever before.

"Gamebryo gives us a great deal of flexibility in creating downloadable titles for the PlayStation Network," said Shalom Mann, SOE senior vice president. "The codebase provides an solid foundation for our downloadable games framework that allows us to bring a variety of different types of games to the PlayStation Network in a fraction of the time had we coded the base engine ourselves."

The first SOE games using the Gamebryo engine are set to launch before February's Game Developers Conference and are described as being based on "gameshow IPs."

THIS IS AWESOME!!!:eek::eek::eek::up:

Blu-Rays Go Portable
Hi-def movies copied to PSPs and memory sticks.
by Jeff Haynes

January 7, 2008 - Now, your Blu-ray library can follow you wherever you go. According to an article from PC World, Sony demonstrated the ability to insert a Blu-ray movie into a PS3 and then transfer a copy of that movie to a PSP or a Memory Stick at its booth at CES. Highlighted as the next level of disc copying, this was merely one part of the new "BD Live" functionality, which will include the ability to download ring tones and new content to BD Live players.

According to David Bishop, president of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, "This way, you can have a portable copy you can take with you. There was always the promise of greater interactivity. You'll see that coming in the new year."

We tried to contact SCEA, but they were unavailable for comment at the time of publication of this article. While there was no estimated time that consumers would see this new function, it could make 2008 a very entertaining year for PSP and PS3 users, and further strengthen Blu-ray in the format war.
 
I wonder how they will regulate that bc that just seems ripe for piracy
 
that's rather awesome, much more practical to me than movies on UMD. Why buy the same movie twice?

At Wal-Mart if you buy Resident Evil Extinction you get a PSP version for free, so I guess they've got it figured out.

I dont think you get what Im saying. According to that article, it looks like you can make a copy of your BR movie to put on a memory stick. If Sony allows that to happen, it just looks like an easy way for people to pirate movies
 
I dunno. It looks like you can only move Blu Ray titles to a memory stick, and if BluRay supplies a UMD film with a BluRay title, why pirate?
 
Maybe the Bluray movie would go straight from the PS3 to the PSP, not like the file will be saved to the PS3 and then have the option of converting it down to the PSP. Also I really doubt the image/sound quality will be the same, for obvious reasons (not just storage space).
 
Playing a 1080i Blu-Ray movie on a PSP is a complete waste of resources and thousands of pixels. I doubt the PSP even has the RAM capacity/speed to stream and compress a Blu-Ray sized file appropriately at viewable framerates.

perhaps Sony has something figured out that you haven't thought of. It's definitely an idea to keep an eye on
 
I like the PSP as much as the next guy (i don´t have one, but plan to when God of War came out), but i´ll never get a UMD movie.
Does people even buy UMD movies?
What´s cool about watching a movie in a resolution of 480 x 272?
To play games, sure, but to watch movies???
Sure, you can get a cable and hook the psp to a tv screen, but.....why do you want to do that insted of buying it on DVD?
 
no people don't buy UMD movies because they're overpriced and lack extra features, plus why buy the same movie twice?. However if you can buy a Blu-Ray once and use it on any BD player and on your PSP, well that's a great idea

That's what the Wal-Mart deal is. You buy the movie and you can transfer it to your memory stick right out of the box.
 
I'd honestly rather watch a movie on a PSP or IPOD (maybe) than carry around a portable DVD player.

As for what you said WHF, the PSP wouldn't be streaming the content, but I mean you can play PS and PS3 games on your PSP through remote play, so being able to watch movies might not be that far off, or it might end up an exclusive feature to the new PSP Slim models, since it has twice the ram or the original PSP.
