UMD Movies

Due to lack of UMD movie sales. Hollywood producers are cutting down the amount of UMD films they make. If UMD video sales increase again then UMD production might increase. Popular old films have came out on UMD aswell as new one's. The UMD can hold to 1.8gb. UMD films don't have full special features unlike the DVD's.

PSP Replacement Faceplates

Psp replacement faceplates have been made. The faceplates rage from all kinds of colours and designs. Replacement faceplates cost about $50.00 and come with brand new buttons depending on what colour faceplate bought. To remove the existing faceplate on the psp you would have to take off the warranty void. I would suggest that you wait until your warranty runs out and then think about replacing the faceplate. Once you take off the existing faceplate dust can easliy gather on the screen. Visit the psp message boards on http://www.us.playstation.com/ to see full tutorial's on how to remove the faceplate.

New Sony DVD Records Straight to PSP

Sony Electronics has made the move to make its products more compatible by releasing a new range of DVD recorders capable of recording straight on to the company's handheld games console, the PSP. Not only that, but the new RDZ-D97A, RDZ-77A, and RDZ-87 models also allow the recording of three programmes at the same time, including one in high-definition (HD). They have a storage capacity ranging between 250GB and 500GB. The PSP connectivity is a new feature, although bizarrely the most powerful model, the RDZ-87, does not have this capability.Owners of the PSP have also had the option of buying movies for the device, although this function has reportedly not been as successful as some had hoped. With the ability to record straight on to the device, perhaps using the PSP as a programme viewing tool will become more popular.The three models will have an initial release only in Japan from May 19th.

White Sony PSP

Currently only white japanese psp's are available. A lot of gamers are waiting for Sony to launch American white psp's. UMD games are not region coded but the movies are so this create's a problem for white psp owner's who do not live in Japan. There is no say to when Sony will release white psp's in North America and Europe.

Psp Firmware update v3.00

A lot of questions about the new firmware update are constanly being asked on almost all psp message boards. Only sony employee's know when the update is coming out and i suggest that you don't keep asking the same question because sony employee's are not allowed to say when the firmware updates is coming out and they risk loosing there job if they tell you when the update is coming out.
