Sony's Blu-ray Movies, Java Games On The Way!

The President of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (SPHE), Benjamin S. Feingold, announced in an official statement the first twenty movies that will be released on the next generation Blu-Ray Disc Format. Blu-Ray is a dual layer 50 GB disc format which boasts high def video and audio. The movie titles that will be released are Sony and MGM movies which Sony acquired in September 2004. Some of them are House of Flying Daggers, Hitch, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, Black Hawk Down, Robocop, and TV series Stargate: Atlantis. The discs are scheduled to be available sometime this summer. Included in many of the discs are java games that buyers of the movies will be able to enjoy, even in just a Blu-Ray player itself. There are already interactive trivia and puzzle games on many DVDs on the market, with the Blu-Ray technology, more features with complex programming and better graphics will be added. The PS3, which is rumored to launch in spring of this year, will be one of the players able to play the games on the Blu-Ray discs. Of course, with the technology of the PS3, more powerful games will be played on that console using its unique hardware. Feingold stated, Beginning this Spring, SPHE will support the rollout of BD-compatible players, PCs and drives from a variety of consumer electronics and computer companies by offering a wide- breadth of high definition movies and promotional materials. He also mentioned, With the announcement of these first twenty titles, I am delighted that the age of Blu-Ray has truly arrived. SPHE will release four titles a month starting this summer and will increase to ten titles a month during the last quarter of 2006.
