Sony to Enable Blu-ray PS3 - PSP Playback

Sony to Enable Blu-ray PS3 - PSP Playback

Not sure how viable this idea is, but it's another check box for the PS3: plug in a Blu-ray movie and play it on your PSP via wi-fi.

Here's a hypothetical situation for you: you own a Full HD, 60in Pioneer Kuro PSP-LX608D, a kick-arse set of Ferguson Hill speakers, a PlayStation 3 and a PSP and you fancy watching a film, do you a) use your preposterously good home cinema setup to enjoy Casino Royale the way it was meant to be or do you b) sit in a huff wishing there was some way you could enjoy your Blu-ray titles on your PSP before going to bed? Well, if Sony is to be believed, option ‘b' may be more applicable than one might immediately think - bizarre no?

We suppose this could work if you wanted to say, put the Blu-ray disc into your PSP in another room and play it say on your PSP in another room?  Otherwise, we're still confused about who might really want this!

could you really tell the difference between standard and hi def on the psp screen and how much room would be on  a psp bluray disc

I suppose if you wanted to watch movies while someone else is watching TV this might help.  I imagine that you could watch regular DVDs over wi-fi as well.  This beats shelling out money for UMD movies.  I don't remember if you can be on another network and connect to the PS3, but how cool would it be to load up a BD before you leave to get your car worked on, and connect to the wi-fi and watch your movie while you wait?

Right now, you can already watch videos and play certain games from your PS3 on your PSP from any wireless network.  So if this idea comes to light, yeah, you'd be able to turn on your PS3 before you left your house, and watch a Blu-ray movie at Starbucks or a hotel or whatever.

This sounds better. Though the point of watching movies on your PSP if someone else was using the TV was a good point.

Yay, another option to keep myself from falling asleep in my finance lecture. 3 hour night class + dim lights for power point + boring voice + finance = zzzzzzz

Sorry guys, but i think this is pretty dumb. I own a PS3 and a PSP and I will never stream a HD movie to a small screen with small stereo speakers. That's why i sunk a fortune on a big TV, PS3, and 7.1 surround sound. Sometimes it just baffles me what companies come up with.

Though you could plug in a DVD, and watch it while you are taking a dump.  Now that is the life!
