Copy a Blu-ray through your PS3

Today, Sony demonstrated that you will eventually be able to slide a Blu-ray disc into your PlayStation 3 console and copy it to either your PlayStation Portable or a memory stick.

"This way, you can have a portable copy you can take with you," explains David Bishop, who is the President of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. "There was always the promise of greater interactivity. You’ll see that coming in the new year," Bishop added.

Sony also demonstrated for the audience how you can now copy and download media such as ringtones to a BD Live player. They used Men In Black for this demonstration.

BD Live has been one of Sony’s bigger headline catchers at CES 2008. With Panasonic announcing the BD Live player yesterday and Fox presenting an Alien Vs Predator multiplayer game at the Blu-ray Disc Association’s booth, it has caused a nice stir for the Sony camp.

Sony also revealed a Men In Black interactive trivia game which was being played by two different people on a PlayStation 3 in two different locations.
