Ya, I dont like sony, but i must admit i love my PSP. Tip to anyone who buys one, dont upgrade the firmware ; ) (well of course this should be common knowledge but i just like to make sure). ctlusinger, i dont like your comment about me being a "sucka" (whatever the hell that means, english man!!), and quite frankly, this is the first time im ever defending sony. Its much easier to read when you spell things the correct way.

He posted his stuff here.

He told us that Sony was now forcing studios to drop the prices of UMD movies (they were over-priced, usually featureless, and they're physically smaller than DVDs so it gives consumers a certain mindset).

With UMDs selling for $9.99 at retail they're bound to start flying off of shelves again. I say 9.99 instead of $8.50 'cause, well you know how retail stores work.
