Kingston Technology Company, a leading supplier of DRAM and flash-based products, and Paramount Pictures this week agreed to deliver full-length motion picture feature films on Kingston flash memory products.

"This unique agreement enables Paramount Digital Entertainment to make available its entertainment offerings on USB and SD cards. As more and more movies are viewed on computers and other portable devices, having a relationship with Kingston will become increasingly important to Paramount for years to come,” said Alex Carloss, executive vice president and general manager of Paramount Digital Entertainment.

Back in September ’08 PNY Technologies, a supplier of graphics cards and memory products, and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment announced they would pre-load Ghostbusters movie on 2GB flash drives to boost their popularity among end-users. Unfortunately, back then a 2GB flash with Ghostbusters ended up with a $50 price-tag, which is even more than the price of Blu-ray disc with a movie.

The movies on Kingston memory will be available to consumers as part of a bundle package and for sale. Exact pricing of Kingston’s flash products with movies by Paramount Pictures is unknown at this point.

"Kingston is very excited to join forces with Paramount on this venture as they are one of the most innovative and forward thinking studios for digital distribution. PDE adds great value to our memory products. We look forward to working with them to bundle additional Paramount content on our full line of USB drives and flash memory cards," said Rick Webb, vice president of consumer markets group at Kingston.

And as usual they will over price themselves out of the market by charging wayyyy to much for something that should sell at or below the price of a DVD
