Hybrid PS3 discs will be available to purchase later this year, combining both game content and Blu-Ray video content. This works perfect for games that are based on Movies like the upcoming Transformers 2 PS3 game. John Koller, director of hardware marketing for the PS3 said, "We are actively pushing, and the way that we see the future is that the movie and the game are placed on the same disc. There are a lot of developers who say, we have this game based on a movie, wouldn t it be great to marry these concepts? We will definitely see this stuff this year."
Of course, the concept only works for games which don’t use up all the space available on the Blu-Ray disc, like Metal Gear Solid 4. We’re looking forward to see which games will use the new format over the next few months. Video games have been announced for various movies including G.I Joe, Wolverine and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
