New Entertainment Pack Comes with Everything but Popcorn

SAN DIEGO, Calif., July 12, 2006 – Sony’s new Memory Stick® Entertainment Packs are designed for people who want to experience the full range of multi-functional features on their PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system.

In concert with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Sony Electronics will be making 1GB and 2GB Memory Stick Duo™ Entertainment Packs available that will be bundled with an installer DVD.
