Does anyone with a PSP really have that long to wait for a movie to download over it's slow wi-fi?

It's time Sony took it a bit more serious and offered an Itunes like site for movie and game downloads for the psp.

It wont work. viewing a website is a pain in the 4$$ alone on the psp. Cache on the psp is pethitic. Otherwise great idea, laid to Rest In Peaces

i have actually downloaded a song onto my psp through the web browser didnt take long either and it even asked me where to save it!

Music yes. its quite good at that. video not likely much much slower than Music.. But then you have Macromedia protection type 1&2 were defeated by dvd decrypter then theres type 3 were it automagicly Delets itself after set number of days. this would hammer the psps cache to death becoase it looks up the website from wich it was downloaded to see if times up of coares you could refrain from going on line to see if its times up but it will loop & loop then eventualy crash your psp

Well i dont know about your internet connection but when my psp is on mines it works fairly fast for a mobile multimedia game system. I think people are expect way more out of the psp then what its capable of and mind you it has surpassed all mobile devices with lower but similar capabilities. The controls are suspect which i hope with the newer version coming out soon they will fix that and yes the other analog added would be great. But honestly the PSP has been out for like 3 - 4 years and has done things that people would not believe. It hasnt been perfect but still its done more then what people paid for in my opinion. As for video on-demand. It would be nice if the price isnt high but knowing the way pricing has been its going be more then what people want to spend.
