Harry Potter Temporarily Resurrects UMD Video



Sony is aggressively shifting towards digital downloads, but apparently Warner Brothers still believes in UMD video. They’re celebrating the launch of the latest Harry Potter movie with a UMD box set containing the first five films.


The Harry Potter collection has five movies on five UMDs and it’s only being released in Europe. Since PSPs are region coded for video, but not games, you won’t be able to watch these films if you have a Region 1 North American PSP. Region 2 PSPs — Japanese and European PSPs can play the movies, though.


Since the PSP Go is right around the corner I don’t think this will get a huge print run. So, take note Harry Potter fans and track this down before it becomes an obscure collectable sold on eBay!
