bdtransfer.jpgThe PSP’s had a rough time living up to its promise as a top-shelf multimedia device. Short battery life hasn’t helped, but perhaps most damning for the system has been – thanks to convoluted formatting processes and a useless proprietary disc format – it’s movie playback. It’s a pain in the ass! Well no longer. Sony have made official at CES today something they’ve been planning for around a year now: the ability to buy a Blu-Ray movie, insert it in your PS3 and download it to your PSP. For keeps. Awesome news, and it’s sure to increase interest in all parties involved, particularly Blu-Ray.
