Vudu, the streaming Walmart alternative to the PlayStation Store, recently received an update. The new Vudu player for PS3, dubbed "2.0," adds support for the PlayStation Move motion controller, and overhauls the interface to be more pointer-friendly. The update comes just in time for Vudu's End of the Year Special, which offers over 400 movies to rent or purchase for only 99 cents. This even includes videos in Vudu's "HDX" format, which streams in 1080p with 5.1 Dolby surround sound.

In addition to this promotion, Vudu is still offering one free HD rental (up to $6 in value) for new users on the PS3. To access Vudu, you'll first need to download it from the PlayStation Store.
