In Japan -


I wonder if blockbuster will do it here??

Not that I would ever bother renting for my PSP. I would just use the memory card.

I really hope Blockbuster will have that service. A lot of movies are coming out in UMD format.
New Line will publish movies in UMD too. Sorry, no Lord of the Rings yet.
here is the article:
Gamespot article (http://gamespot.com/news/2005/07/13/news_6129017.html)
Amazon.com shows a big selection of UMD movies, check it out:
Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/search-handle-url/index=dvd&field-keywords=psp&search-type=ss&bq=1&store-name=dvd/ref=xs_ap_l_xgl74/102-2412979-7444954)
I hope to see Star Wars in UMD format soon too. :D

Surely many people will just transfer a dvd to a memory card to watch on the PSP rather than splashing out on a UMD.

I bet pirates will love this in the US. It probably won't happen in the US untill people stop transfering games to memory cards and posting the games on websites and P2P programs for every peep to see and download, in other words, once Sony THINKS they have a good firmware version to stop hacking.
