.hack//The Movie Blu-ray to Include PlayStation 3 Game

Anriasang writes, "CyberConnect2 announced .hack//The Movie earlier today. While fans were likely pleased at the news of a 3DCG movie based off the franchise, it appears that many had been hoping for a PlayStation 3 revival when CC2 began teasing the announcement last week." (.hack, PS3)

Question, do these types of movies play on regular blu ray players? Just curious. either way I'd be playing it in my ps3

Edit: what does the disagree mean? does that mean it DOESN'T play? Does it mean I WON'T be laying it in my ps3?

I think you got a disagree for this:

"The hybrid discs are playable on both PS3 and standard Blu-ray players."

Which is written in the actual article, if you clicked it.

For the tekken hybrid both are able to watch the movie but only the ps3 will be able to play the games. So probably its the same with this one too.

Either a new .hack or at least an HD remake of the games while they do that dust off Xenosaga and turn it into an HD remake as well

To my knowledge, this has only been done once before. The first Macross Frontier movie, "The False Songstress," was released on a BD/PS3 hybrid along with a short (but totally awesome) Macross game based off of the (even better) PSP Macross games.

You stick the disc in the PS3, and an icon shows up under both the video tab and the games tab--pretty self explanatory. Nice to have everything on one disc.

(They're doing the same thing with the second Frontier movie, Wings of Goodbye, due to be released in a month or two).

So, what does this have to do with this dot hack hybrid pack?

Basically... don't get too excited guys. Movies in Japan are expensive. Games are expensive, too. And these hybrid products? Yeah--they're not going to cost much more than your average movie (which is LESS than your average game). What that means is that you should NOT expect to see much in the way of content. The Macross game I mentioned earlier was more like a demo than a game--it had something like 6 selectable units, 8 selectable missions, and 2 difficulty levels--and NO SAVING.

To be even clearer, if anyone thinks I'm being vague here... a new PS3 game can have an MSRP of around 6000-8000 (75-110 USD) yen. Expect this hybrid pack to cost about 5000 yen ($65 USD).

I wish I could offer some kind of hope, like, "maybe it's just a demo for a REAL dot hack sequel," but people had the same wishful thoughts about the last Macross hybrid... but instead of getting a sequel we're getting ANOTHER demo, titled, "Last Frontier," so I find it hard to be optimistic.

That said, it's been a long time since we've seen anything Dot Hack, so they ought to have something to show for the several-years of silence.

The Watchmen Blu-ray came with the two games I believe.

So when does this release on Bluray in NA?

Must have more .hack. An awesome franchise that needs to be continued or finished with a bang, yes an MMO on the next-gens and PC would be perfect. A rare occurrence we get to see this news on N4G. I hope this movie will be just as good as Trilogy or even better.

In my Natsume voice: I really want that item.
