As the large pile of UMD discs gathers dust in the corner of our office, news has reached us that Sony's planning to drill the final nail in the MiniDisc spin off's coffin with video download for the PSP.According to the Financial Times, we'll all be downloading movies via PC for transfer to Memory Stick some time in 2007. With each download only taking up 400Mb of disk space we'd imagine they'll be customized for the PSP's lush 4.3in screen rather than full 1080p monsters.Word is that Movielink, CinemaNow and Amazon are in talks to sign up to the service. Should make for an interesting rival to iTunes' fledgling service.
