According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal Studios Home Entertainment has confirmed reports that it will be the fourth major studio to release movies for Sony's PlayStation Portable.

Uni's first slate of six titles on the Universal Media Disc, due July 26 at $29.98 each, are widescreen versions of Assault on Precinct 13, The Rundown, Van Helsing, Dawn of the Dead: Unrated Director's Cut, The Chronicles of Riddick: Unrated Director's Cut and The Fast and the Furious.

Universal president Craig Kornblau said the PSP offers consumers "an exciting opportunity to expand their entertainment experience beyond the living room," referring to the booming entertainment-to-go market that includes such hand-held devices as PSP, portable DVD players and laptops, and mobile DVD units for cars and boats.
