    i have always thought that video UMDs should be about $10 and no more.
    if i'm gonna pay DVD price then i'll just buy a DVD and convert it.

    What they should do is include UMDs of a movie with the DVD, at an additional price (not a lot).

    The quality of the video on UMD's is great tho... and the picture's like twice the size. An incredible amount of video storage on that iPod tho, i mean O-M-G... but it will all be copyright infringed video, right? I mean... any video on the iPod will have to be downloaded or converted somehow and then transfered to the iPod... and at 600 megs a high quality full length video, you could store 100 full length movies on 1 60 gig iPod... that's an insane amount of space for one device... tiny little video tho... but imagine that 100 full length high quality movies in your pocket at all times... at 20 bucks a dvd that's 2000 dollars worth of copyright infringement bouncing around in the pockets of iPod owners around the world at any time... way to go Apple!

    I also agree the prices are ridiculous for UMDs... has anyone bought any of them? and how much did you pay? I see them for 19.99 - 24.99 over at best buy... haven't bought any tho... has anyone here?

    i seriously don't see the practicality behind umd video. how many times can you watch t2 on the shitter? 4gb hdd and THEN the psp will be a practical video tool.
