    Since PSP launch the best selling media for the PSP was UMD Movies more so than UMD games.

    What Sony needs to do to keep this alive is to make UMD Writers and UMD Media available to the public so they can make their own UMD movies that will keep the format alive.

    Plus you will then see UMD Players available be they for UMD movies or Music..

    If they don't then yeah its heading for extinction on the movies side.

    Personally I would just rip a movie and watch on it off my Memory Stick if I really wanted to on the PSP. See the only UMD movie I have is the free Spiderman one.

    well, if Sony wants teh UMD format to live, im going to email them this idea, why not make a UMD player like a DVD player for home theater systems, and be less than DVD players, im sure that could help boost up their sales and make Universal come back to the UMD format, just my 2 cents

    That would be a good. I thought of this a long time ago, as I never understood why SONY never gave us the ability to watch our UMD's on the big screen. It would be a great idea if we could and I really don't want to open up my PSP and mod it to see it on the big screen so SONY should just release a UMD player.
    1 God 1 King is truly a king =D He saved me from leaving the scene, but kindly donating his PSP to me. Anybody who talks to him on these forums, is not worthy of his kindness =P THANK YOU 1 GOD 1 KING!!!!

    there is an easy was to keep UMD movies alive, all Sony have to do it make it so you can plug your PSP in to your TV and watch it on there, that way you can watch it on both PSP and TV. That would motivate me to buy one. bout you?
