    that's rather awesome, much more practical to me than movies on UMD. Why buy the same movie twice?

    At Wal-Mart if you buy Resident Evil Extinction you get a PSP version for free, so I guess they've got it figured out.

    I dont think you get what Im saying. According to that article, it looks like you can make a copy of your BR movie to put on a memory stick. If Sony allows that to happen, it just looks like an easy way for people to pirate movies

    I dunno. It looks like you can only move Blu Ray titles to a memory stick, and if BluRay supplies a UMD film with a BluRay title, why pirate?

    Maybe the Bluray movie would go straight from the PS3 to the PSP, not like the file will be saved to the PS3 and then have the option of converting it down to the PSP. Also I really doubt the image/sound quality will be the same, for obvious reasons (not just storage space).

    Playing a 1080i Blu-Ray movie on a PSP is a complete waste of resources and thousands of pixels. I doubt the PSP even has the RAM capacity/speed to stream and compress a Blu-Ray sized file appropriately at viewable framerates.

    perhaps Sony has something figured out that you haven't thought of. It's definitely an idea to keep an eye on

    I like the PSP as much as the next guy (i don´t have one, but plan to when God of War came out), but i´ll never get a UMD movie.
    Does people even buy UMD movies?
    What´s cool about watching a movie in a resolution of 480 x 272?
    To play games, sure, but to watch movies???
    Sure, you can get a cable and hook the psp to a tv screen, but.....why do you want to do that insted of buying it on DVD?

    no people don't buy UMD movies because they're overpriced and lack extra features, plus why buy the same movie twice?. However if you can buy a Blu-Ray once and use it on any BD player and on your PSP, well that's a great idea

    That's what the Wal-Mart deal is. You buy the movie and you can transfer it to your memory stick right out of the box.

    I'd honestly rather watch a movie on a PSP or IPOD (maybe) than carry around a portable DVD player.

    As for what you said WHF, the PSP wouldn't be streaming the content, but I mean you can play PS and PS3 games on your PSP through remote play, so being able to watch movies might not be that far off, or it might end up an exclusive feature to the new PSP Slim models, since it has twice the ram or the original PSP.
