Sony Putting Movies On Memory Sticks
Called the Memory Stick Entertainment Pack, the package will include a disc containing four movies. When you insert the disc into your PC, the disc will prompt you for a code from the packaging, which will allow you to place one of the movies onto the included Memory Stick.
The four movies to be distributed are XXX: State of the Union, Hitch, The Grudge, and Swat. The 1GB pack will retail for roughly $60, whereas the 2GB pack will sell for approximately $100.
While this is a far cry from the on-demand downloadable movies that people want, it is a start at least. Also, those Memory Stick prices represent a significant price-drop compared to what first-party sticks sell for now.
