Well roughly £10.50 to £15.30, if US figures are anything to go by, though as usual, we UK and European slobs will probably end up forking out a little bit more for the privilege, if things run to form.[br]How do we know? Well Sony US has just announced that its ever-growing UMD movie range will cost between $19.99 and $28.95, and has also added House of Flying Daggers, the newest kung-fu classic from director Zhang Yimou of Hero fame to its roster, bringing total confirmed UMD movie titles to seven.[br][br]The list of movies now reads like this: Hellboy, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, XXX, Spider Man 2 (free with the first million PSPs in the US) plus Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children and of course House of Flying Daggers.[br][br]But what will us UK and Euro slobs be forced to pay for a pre-recorded UMD movie? Well we've put in a call to Sony HQ to find out and are currently awaiting its response, though we'd be surprised if they commit to anything quite yet, given even the PSP's launch date is still to be confirmed.[br]However it would come as some surprise to find a direct correlation between US and UK and European prices for all sorts of reasons. How much would you pay for a PSP UMD?
