Everyone's Dumping UMD Movies

Looks like watching movies on your PSP will soon be going the way of the dodo. Next-Generation is reporting that the UMD movie format is a complete dud. Everyone from major Hollywood studios to Wal-Mart are dropping the format like turds into a toilet.

An anonymous Hollywood executive scoffed at UMD, saying that absolutely no one is watching movies on the PSP. Likewise, Paramount is claiming that releasing UMD format editions of popular movies is 'the exception, rather than the rule': 'No one's even breaking even on them,' he claimed. And a Universal Studios executive went even farther: 'Sales are near zilch. It's another Sony bomb.' Ouch!

  1. yeah I've owned a PSP for about 7 months, and have never watched a movie on it, or even thought about it. I'm not surprised stores are dropping them.

    either way, I still love my psp :)
