Top Gun & Days of Thunder to get Blu-ray game/movie combo

Two upcoming releases combine a movie and game into one Blu-ray disc: Top Gun and Days of Thunder.

5

Given Blu-ray's massive capacity, and PS3's ability to play both disc-based games and movies, it's odd that not many more movies have offered the option to play a game and watch a movie on a single disc. Most recently, Blu-ray discs for Battle LA included a sneak preview of Resistance 3. Midway's Stranglehold added the movie Hard Boiled to special editions of the game.

505 Games is adding two more to the shortlist of hybrid game and movie discs. According to Joystiq, both Top Gun and Days of Thunder will get new releases on June 7th that include the movie and PlayStation Network game. Amazon lists both games for $29.99, which is actually more expensive than buying the movie and game separately. (The Blu-ray goes for about $16.99, while the games currently cost $9.99 each.) Still, the novelty warrants some sort of premium, right?

      Why exactly would I pay more than the individual cost to get the two things on the same disc?

        Because you have so much money just laying around.

      Why would I want to pay for any one of them...?
      Awful films, awful games.

        It's not the NES game. This was released last August on PlayStation Network and was developed by Doublesix games. I didn't think the combo packs were new either, but maybe just officially announced recently (retailers have been listing them since last October).

      What we need is a game in which you can use F-14s to bomb NASCAR tracks.
