* Crappy movie and partial game: $40

Playstation2/Sony
If this is what Sony thinks will get people to buy more UMD movies or PSP games, they're sadly mistaken: 3 levels of Wipeout and the movie "Stealth", for $40.

On November 15, Sony will release the military sci-fi film Stealth, which slipped under most summer moviegoers' radar, on UMD. The portable version of the $130-million-budget, $31-million-grossing film will come with the first three levels of the best-selling PSP racing game Wipeout Pure. It will also feature a "Stealth" track not found in the regular version of the game, which will let players race as the advanced fighter jet from Stealth. However, it will still sport the same three modes (single race, zone, and time trial) and speed levels (vector/beginner, venom/intermediate, and flash/expert) as the full game.
Note to Sony: it didn't slip under our radar. It was just pure crap.

Adding insult to injury, this disc ALSO forces your PSP to upgrade to the 2.0 firmware, instantly ruining any emulation software you may enjoy running. No thanks, I'm not paying Sony $40 for a crappy movie which is going to break my PSP.
