PSP UMD Movies Priced
We have the scoop on the pricing and dates for PSP UMD movies, including a new release that was previously unannounced!
The first slate of previously announced catalogue UMD titles includes XXX, Hellboy, Resident Evil 2 and Once Upon A Time In Mexico and debuts on April 19 and will be priced at $19.95.
The Academy Award-nominated action film House of Flying Daggers will be released in North America on the UMD video format that plays on PSP. The street date is April 19 - day and date with the DVD - with the suggested list price of $28.95. We don't know if the price difference means this new disc will have special features or anything extra.
Additional UMD titles are scheduled to be released monthly thereafter. These UMD releases will include a mix of day and date titles priced similarly to their respective DVDs and catalogue titles priced at $19.95.
The announcement was made by Marshall Forster, Executive Vice President for SPHE North America.
"The release of these hit action films for the PlayStation Portable marks an important chapter in the personal entertainment industry for our consumers and a new, incremental business for our business partners," noted Mr. Forster. "SPHE is delighted to be part of the introduction of this remarkable entertainment technology to the home entertainment market."
