Sony Queues Up Films for PSP Launch

By David Worthington, BetaNews

Sony has revealed that it will release four movie titles on its proprietary Universal Media Disc (UMD) format that will play on its new PSP PlayStation Portable handheld entertainment system. The flicks are slated to be released on April 19, one month after the PSP's availability in retail stores on March 24. The titles include "XXX," "Hellboy," "Resident Evil 2," and "Once Upon A Time in Mexico."

UMD is a proprietary disc format created by Sony, which can store up to 1.8GB of data on a single disc that is several times smaller than a standard compact disc. Sony has baked digital rights management into the format to thwart illicit duplication. The PSP is a versatile entertainment device that offers 3D games, as well as the ability to watch movies and listen to music. Units will retail for $249.99 USD and will include several accessories.

Sorry to have to say this but,........weak.
I doubt this format will go anywhere, besides for PSP games and Sony movies.

who in their right mind would buy another copy of a movie just to play on their psp? thats just stupid.
there are a few movies that might be worth buying on both formats, assuming the price is reasonable. but the 4 listed so far are super weak
