Game over for UMD

July 22nd, 2006 · No Comments

US retail giant Target has pulled Sony’s UMD movie format from its shelves, citing poor sales.  Wal Mart has already dropped the format, and both Universal and New Line Home Entertainment have ceased production of films on UMD.
Widespread ripping of DVDs to Memory Stick using unofficial software is being blamed for the move, although the ridiculously high price of UMDs probably didn’t help much either…
