Image Entertainment is committing films, TV shows, music and comedy programming to Sony’s PlayStation Portable handheld videogame console.

The Paris Hilton-starring DVD premiere movie The Hillz, Jamie Foxx stand-up special I Might Need Security and concert disc Godsmack Live are among the titles streeting from Image June 28 for the PSP. Prices have not yet been determined for Image’s PSP-compatible Universal Media Discs.

Short Circuit, Magic of Flight, Tupac Shakur: Thug Angel and Endless Summer also are slotted for that date.

Image aims to release fresh PSP titles on a monthly basis and hopes to launch them internationally in the future.

At this point, studios’ dominant PSP contributions are popular feature films. As expected, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment last week unveiled a slate of summer PSP releases, including hits Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story and Napoleon Dynamite.

Geneon Entertainment is on board to supply anime niche titles for the PSP, starting with Appleseed and Samurai Champloo July 5.

“Image is recognized as a major independent provider of entertainment on DVD, and we are looking to occupy a similar position with the new and exciting UMD format,” Image president and CEO Martin Greenwald said. “Supporting UMD will enable Image to create additional revenue from our existing library of content and to reach a segment of game retailers looking to stock both PSP hardware and UMD software.”
