Sony has said that the transferring of Blu-ray films to PSP is a decision for Hollywood studios, not the platform holder.

Speaking with Eurogamer, a spokesperson for Sony stated that Blu-ray releases of Tropic Thunder and RocknRolla already support the feature for the handheald, but are viewed at a reduced quality.

This statement from Sony comes on the heels of a report from Blu-ray.com, which stated that the first two Blu-ray releases to feature PSP copies of the films will arrive November 10 in the US.

These movies are Godzilla and The Ugly Truth, and include a digital copy especially for the PSP but you will need to use your PS3 to transfer them.

Speaking with Kotaku, Patrick Seybold, Sr. Director, Corporate Communications and Social Media for SCEA, said that Sony’s […]
