Looks like Sony’s Universal Media Disc,?the?PSP-only movie format, is drastically fizzling out of favour?with the major film studios. While the discs initially sold well?at PSP’s launch, sales rapidly dropped off and movie companies are no longer interested in producing titles.

According to the article, At least two major studios have completely stopped releasing movies on UMD, while others are either toying with the idea or drastically cutting back. A high-ranking executive said: "We are on hiatus with UMD," he said. "Releasing titles on UMD is the exception rather than the rule. No one’s even breaking even on them."

Did anyone really see a point to UMD anyway?
