Blu-ray Demo Disc To Come With PS3 At Launch?

The rumour mill creaks into gear today with much Internet discussion regarding the possible inclusion of a Blu-ray demo disc designed to erm, demonstrate how lush films can look given the high-def treatment.

Basic Instinct 2, xXx, RV, Training Day, Hitch, Resident Evil Apocalypse, Black Hawk Down, Layer Cake and Saw to name a few – could well be available to sample with the PS3 launch. Then again, maybe not.

Sony, I could have swore the future was digital distrubution. Anyways why not preload the content onto the harddrive like what microsoft did with the xbox 360.

Probably cos it would take too much room up.Blu-ray could be like 25Gb or 50Gb.Makes sense.

I heard that Sony might even allow you to download these demos at launch, that might be the cheapest route, however a disk is much better in my opinion. I hope this turns out to be true.

i hope they have some game demos aswell. i am a movie buff but i do want to test games aswell, i hope they do the same thing with the ps2 and gives a game demo and film demo aswell.

Well, with both the PS1 & PS2, there was always a demo disc, so there is little reason for there not to be one this time.

PoE: Deadfire, Unless you have a or PS5 or an SSD don't bother, loading times are insane. A minute and a half to go into a room to investigate a desk in an inn and then an additional 1 1/2 minutes to leave the room and then load to leave the inn???

And they never fixed it.

RMT ruins the economy for people who aren’t paying for in game money. Prices sky rocket for items. They really need to come up with a system that prevents in game money/item sales and still be able to trade items. I’m sure it can be done but the cost to do it is the issue.

One thing I do to combat this is not play.

Remember, dudes, game companies have no issues if you pay money to THEM to "save the time"
But how dare you pay to somebody else.
