Owners of Sony's PlayStation Portable (PSP) game devices are now able to download full-length movies via a WiFi connection, without the need of a computer. According to published reports, only about 90 titles are currently available via the PlayStation Network for direct download (and some of these are TV episodes). For the time being, all of the titles represent animated fare, which are available at $5.30 for standard resolution and $640 for high definition. The company gave no indication when the WiFi service will come to the U.S. and Europe, although some writers observed that portable downloading may be far more practical in Japan, where downloading speeds are typically 5-10 times faster than they are in the U.S.
