Sony sees UMD support drop


According to a story in the Hollywood reporter, support from Tinseltown’s movie giants for Sony’s UMD disc format, used in the PSP, is falling rapidly.

According to Games Digest, the article alleges that Paramount, Imagine and Universal have dropped UMD releases completely, with 20th Century Fox and Buena Vista said also to have scaled back their support. The piece blames a glut of too many titles, plus growing competition from the video iPod. Sony in return are said to be working on plans to let you watch UMD movies on home TVs.
