“With the advent of flash drives, we always wondered about getting our favourite movies and games on these compact and easy to carry devices?”
This wish seems to get materialize with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and PNY Technologies, embarking the first ever release of a movie on a flash USB drive.
The duo has announced the release of a 2GB USB 2.0 flash drive preloaded with the movie, Ghostbusters (ed: Why Ghostbusters?)
This marks a paradigm shift in the usage of Flash Drive, as it would enable users to carry the movie on a small stick and watch it on their laptops or PCs.
It works on an effortless plug-and-play basis and is compatible with all the prominent operating systems like, Windows XP, Vista, Linux, Mac OS X, etc.
Marketed by Argos, device is expected to cost around GBP29.99; there are concerns about the unauthorised copying of the movie from the drive, as its cost is far more than the DVD version of the film.
In contrast, the DVD version of the movie is available for only £3.89 including delivery at Play.com
