    Just got these UMD disks. Picture quality is awesome! :thumbsup:

    Since I live in japan, I got the R2 edition which will only work on Jap PSP's. This confirms that movies are region locked.

    Format is as I thought, Mpeg 4 (AVC)
    Sound is only 2.0 stereo but sounds pretty good.

    Screen is in 1.78:1 wide.

    Haven't actually watched them all yet, but so far no extras on the disks. I guess that would be asking too much from a 1.5gb disk!

    Overall, im happy, but I dont see this format catching on as a replacement for DVD or anything else for that matter.
    It will be its own niche market.

    Still, nobody else has ever tried anything like this.
    So if sony have the good sense to licence out the UMD format to other companies we could see lots of cool stuff coming out on the PSP.

    At the moment only sony pictures are making anything.
    (So much for Universal Media Disk huh!? :D )

    Buena Vista (Kill Bill) and Lions Gate (Saw, Open Water) have both signed up too for UMDs so expect to see more soon. Where did you get your region 2 UMDs from just out of interest?

    I got them in a shop called "Bic Camera". (in other words, I live in japan)

    By the way. Cost wise Resi Evil 1 was a little cheaper than newer films like resi 2 or Spidey 2.

    Resi cost 2690 yen and Speidy 2 cost 3500yen. About 1000 yen difference.

    200 yen = 1 pound.
