Watchmen: The End is Nigh Blu-ray to combine game and film

Andrew Yoon of Joystiq writes:
Watchmen: The End is Nigh The Complete Experience is one of the first Blu-ray discs to offer a video game and movie in a single package. (The special edition of Stranglehold on PS3 included a copy of Hard Boiled.) Not only will the package include the Director's Cut of the Watchmen film, it will also include The End is Nigh Parts 1 and 2. The two-disc set will feature exclusive artwork and packaging. (PS3, Watchmen: The End is Nigh)

I may consider this and yes it's a great idea.

...this is the only way I'd consider purchasing this game with movie in tow. It'd be nice for a version of Batman AA to come special with a bluray version of Dark Knight. Collectors Edition maybe. However it'd also suck for me if I did buy it since I already have bluray for Dark Knight...meh oh well cannot win them all.

im not a huge fan of the movie.. Too long and drawn out, but i might pick this up depending on the price point. I hope they start doing this with more blu ray's

This is a great idea but doesn't it kinda validate the things the Xbox fanboys say about PS3 beign bought to watch films?

To the person who mentioned AA and Dark Knight, I think Gotham Knight would be nice to put on the PS3 AA.

"doesn't it kinda validate the things the Xbox fanboys say about PS3 beign bought to watch films"
Ummm... lots of people do buy PS3s to watch films. This doesn't validate any argument because the argument was never valid.
How is the ability to watch Blu-ray discs on PS3 a bad thing?
Anybody stating that as though it was a bad thing is simply jealous or mad.

Well yes, it's not a bad thing, but it seems to me like a gigantic target is being painted on your chests.

Sony actually said they planned to do this a few months ago as well.

EDIT: I'm on about the Xbox Fanboys saying you guys buy the PS3 ONLY to watch films.

I have to disagree with this. I say anyone who doesn't take advantage of the features the system has to offer then they are wasting their money. I also try to avoid DD as much as possible so to be honest, I enjoy the fact that I get a game with the movie.

Also, if anything this encourage more people to buy a PS3 as a bluray player. When you have a PS3, chances are you will buy games for it. So, in a way, the Bluray feature is a trojan horse for more people to buy PS3 games.

I think this is way better than those games offer with DVD/Bluray.
