Burbank (CA) – Sony has started bundling feature films with some of its premium Memory Stick Duos. Entertainment Packs for the 1 GB and 2 GB versions of Memory Stick Duos will include a DVD with four films: XXX State of the Union, Hitch, The Grudge and S.W.A.T. However, these films can be unlocked and played on – and only on – a PSP.
While Sony says the package gives a “quick, simple way to get a full-length movie,” the procedure seems anything but quick. Although the DVD holds all four movies, the user can only pick one. An unlock code in the package allows the user to unlock the movie and then transfer it to the Memory Stick. The movie can then only be played on the PSP.
The Entertainment Packs will be available next month for $60 for the 1 GB version, while $100 gets you the 2 GB version.
