Well this we haven't heard of in quite a while. A new UMD movie is out and about on sale at Amazon, and Warner Bros. is apparently hoping some of the magic will spill over to the dying format. In celebration of the release of the Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince movie, they are releasing a UMD box set containing the first five iterations of the wizarding franchise.
This collection is only available in Europe, however, and are region coded for video. So if you'd like to get this and you have a Region 1 North American PSP, sorry, but it's not gonna play on your unit. Japanese PSPs can also play them too, however.
Sounds like a cool collectible. It could be a good idea to pick up the set and play a Harry Potter marathon first before you head out to the cinemas for film #6. You can get it for UK 29.98 (about US 50).
The video game version of HP and the Half-Blood Prince (Xbox 360, PS3, PSP, PS2, Wii, DS, and PC) is also now available in retail.
