UMD Finally Shelved?


It’s been a while coming but it looks as though Sony has finally shelved the UMD disc format for movies in favour of its recently announced Memory Stick Entertainment Pack (MSEP). According to Realtechnews sales of the UMDs have slowed to a trickle and as we reported back in March several major movie studios have withdrawn support for the format. However, the killer blow was an unconfirmed report that US retail giants Wal-Mart and Best Buy were scaling back on stocks, whilst Target has stopped stocking them altogether.
