According to online retail site Amazon.com, the PSP is getting three more films to add to its ever-expanding roster. Columbia Tri-Star's Kung Fu Hustle (August 9), from Shaolin Soccer director Stephen Chow, Labyrinth (July 26), and The Dark Crystal (July 26) are all PSP-bound.

Entertainment trade magazine Variety reported today that Majesco has agreed to bring DreamWorks films to the Game Boy Video format. The film studio will be the first to bring films to the Game Boy Advance's video library. Among the films scheduled for release on the GBA are Shrek, Shrek 2, and A Shark's Tale. The films will be available this summer at a price point near $20.

To bring films to the GBA, Majesco had to rework its previous technology so the handheld could play back feature-length video. Previously, Game Boy Video was used primarily for children's television shows, such as SpongeBob SquarePants.
