    Thats pretty cool but why do you need to play a movie on your PSP on the Television set? Isn't that useless?

    ok, the resolution of a PSP is pretty good...
    but stretch it out to a tv, and you have a resolution as bad or worse than a regular nintendo. Why would they release something like that? so people will buy UMD discs, which cost more than dvds, for no benefit?
    I like watching moveis atleast at a standard definition, not something that is going to look worse than vhs.
    the Resolution of HDTV is generally 1650x900 or 1920x1080 (for computers its usually 1920x1200, or 1650x1080, dont get them mixed up, its 16:10 or 16:9); the psp has a resolution of 480x272. Even 1280x800 stretched out on a TV is just above average resolution, any lower than that is a degrading resolution. Pixel for Pixel, HDTV has 15.8 times more pixels than the PSP, so imagine HDTV divided by approximately 16, stretched out. Not to mention, if you dont have a 16:9 TV it is going to look goofy. Sorry for the rant, but this is retarded...
