Hi-Def Digest (Dec 13) via AfterDawn.com (Dec 15):
The movie studio Lionsgate has announced two new films it plans to release on Blu-ray in which it promises to "push the limits of next-gen interactivity." The movies, "Saw IV" and "War", will include new features never before seen on Blu-ray titles.
Dubbed "MoLog" (short for Movie Blog), Lionsgate tells the press that the new feature will enable consumers to create and share their own added value content via blog entries.
In addition, the studio plans to include a network-connected game on its Jan 1 release of 'War,' which Lionsgate says will allow fans to play each other online.
At press time, it still wasn't clear whether there any Blu-ray players (including the PS3) would be compatible with the new technology at launch. Although studio officials have hinted that an upcoming PS3 firmware update will unlock these web-enabled features, Sony has yet to confirm these reports, and no manufacturer has provided a timetable for the first true BD-Live hardware.
