Sony Memory Stick Movie BundleThat’s right.  One of the world’s best portable video game systems has already undermined its proprietary format and cut all further production of UMD movies.  Sony’s medium of choice for the PSP is now Sony’s somewhat other failed format: The Memory Stick.  Don’t worry, it gets worse.  According to EHomeUpgrade, Sony’s PSP can handle 480×272 – what you’d expect all your movies in, right?  Guess again.  Sony’s Memory Stick movies will be scaled down to 320×240 – probably done to reduce size and accomplish the necessary “squeeze”.  What does this mean for Sony PSP games?  Who knows, but we gotta question Blu Ray, and oh ya, there is that damn Mini Disc format that never quite took off, but just won’t disappear.
