Sony, thru Sony Pictures Home Entertainment president Benjamin Feingold, is still optimistic about their hand-held movie-watching feature, revealing that plans of making the PSP connectable to TV sets for big-screen viewing (I thought there were other gadgets specifically made for that, like let's say, THE DVD PLAYER?!) are being finalized to draw back the public's interest.
"We're hoping the format's going to be reinvigorated with next-generation capability that may include living-room or normal television playback," he added. I believe there's a word for that, quixotic, you can even say, desperate.

I think this should have been something to come out a long time ago. I mean, why buy a UMD for the same price, if not more, than a DVD, when you can watch a DVD at home on your TV or on a portable DVD player, and even rip it to your memory stick to play on the PSP. I believe this is the reason for the lack of UMD movie sales.
Hopefully, the TV adapter that's in the works will give the UMD movie market a new boom in the market.
Any other news of this official adapter would be great...
