Sony to pair game demo with Battle: Los Angeles Blu-ray

For all the talk of film and video game synergy, you don’t see a lot of real world applications. Now, Sony’s putting its money where its mouth is. Battle-los-angeles

The company will include a demo for the upcoming “Resistance 3” in the Blu-ray release of “Battle: Los Angeles”. The game is expected to hit store shelves in September.

The game and film actually have quite a history together. The first confirmation that “Resistance 3” was on the way came from an on-set photo when “B:LA” was filming. (Sony had positioned an ad for the game on a billboard in a scene of the disaster flick.)

Game demos on Blu-rays aren’t unheard of, but they’re rare. Sony paired a demo for “God of War III” on the 2009 home release of “District 9,” while Disney included the full “Toy Story 3” game in the collector’s edition of the movie.

    Whether Sony’s breach is due to its inability to protect financial informatio­n, or due to its negligence to invest in the appropriat­e infrastruc­ture to prevent data theft, is a debatable discussion point.
