Future reveals Blu-ray covermount

The covermount will feature playable demos of both first and third party titles alongside other multimedia content – and will eventually include user generated content.

"We are very excited to partner with Future to offer a playable Blu-ray disc to UK PlayStation 3 owners,” said managing director of SCE UK Ray Maguire. “The high capacity of Blu-ray media is the perfect method to distribute large volumes of unique existing, and user-generated content in HD, showcasing PS3's multimedia capabilities to the full. Combined with the PlayStation Network Store, we're offering a content distribution channel unmatched anywhere else in the industry.”

Publisher of Official PlayStation Magazine Matt Pierce added: “We are delighted that Official PlayStation Magazine will deliver to its readers a monthly playable disc, and the world's first covermounted Blu-ray disc. Future has worked closely with Sony since 1995 to offer playable demo discs for PlayStation, PS2 and PSP and we will be working hard to ensure gamers get the very best content for their PS3 as well.”
