Disney To Sell Movies On MicroSD Cards


I really liked this idea until I saw the estimated price was going to be $53! Seriously. Makes the "digital download" version DVDs seem like a blockbuster deal, and more practical anyways.

Walt Disney Company has partnered with Panasonic in order to kick-start the initiative, which will "package pre-recorded microSD cards together with DVDs holding the same movie content," giving users and easy watch to watch their favorite DVDs on portable players. The move is just the next in a long line of tries. Here recently, many DVDs and Blu-ray Discs have arrived with download codes that enabled consumers to login to iTunes (or a similar site) and download the film onto their portable device. We can only imagine that the chance for pirating is less with an actual flash card, but we’re not so certain we see the appeal here.
