Ingenious... Get Sony to show people how good it feels to download a free movie... then make millions selling storage for all the torrents that will soon follow.

Someone at PNY deserves a raise.

Not to mention the fact that THE MOVIE WILL NOT PLAY ONCE YOU DOWNLOAD IT! I got a 16 GB card and adapter for Christmas and received the free movie download. Cool, I thought...... not really! I'm not the only person it's happened to, either.
