Sony To Offer Proprietary Format Movies On PSP

from the is-this-what-we-want dept

For a company that claims they’ve learned their lessons about proprietary formats and DRM, Sony doesn’t appear to be slowing down any time soon. Beyond just trying to make the new portable gaming platform, the PSP, have its own download music store they’re also going to be releasing videos of some movies for the PSP on the special format discs that will only work on the PSP. At what point does Sony realize that they’re shooting themselves in the foot? People don’t want proprietary formats that only work in very specific devices any more, and every time Sony tries and fails to do so again, they seem to simply ignore this lesson.
