Umd: Sony's New Beta?


Raising new questions about the suitability of portable devices for watching motion pictures, Paramount and Universal, citing poor sales, have stopped releasing movies on Sony's Universal Media Disc (UMD), which plays on the popular PlayStation Portable gaming device. According to today's (Thursday) Hollywood Reporter, other studios are cutting back on releases, while retailers are reducing the amount of shelf space devoted to UMDs. "No one's watching movies on PSP," the president of one of the six major studios' home entertainment divisions told the trade publication. "It's a game player, period." But Benjamin Feingold, president of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, said that he believed owners of the device were loading movies into its memory stick and watching them that way.
