Ghostbusters on USB drive

Sony and portable flash drive maker PNY on Wednesday announced they are collaborating on the release of a 2GB flash drive that come preloaded with the 1984 blockbuster Ghostbusters. The two companies claim to be the first to release a full-length movie in such a method. Sony and PNY promises users will be able to watch the movie on their PCs or laptops, though whether it can be copied onto the computer and stored for uses in other devices or multiple devices is unknown but unlikely given copyright concerns.

Once the movie is off the drive, the 2GB capacity will allow users to store 12 hours of video content, 33 hours of music, or 1,080 pictures, PNY claims. The pre-loaded USB drive is available in the UK now at Argos chain of stores, although its pricing has not been revealed. A standard 2GB flash drive from PNY is priced at the equivalent of about $17.50 on Argos' webstore.
