Companies are dropping Sony's UMD format like crazy. Here's the story straight from Slashdot.

Thought I found this comment very interesting.

"Universal Studios Home Entertainment has completely stopped producing UMD movies, according to executives who asked not to be identified by name. Said one high-ranking exec: 'It's awful. Sales are near zilch. It's another Sony bomb -- like Blu-ray."'"

Just like Blu-Ray? Do they know something we don't?

Sony is big on proprietary media, I wouldn't be suprised if blu-ray was a failure. Lets go through their list:

beta-max
minidisc
minidisc-hd
umd
duo

I believe there are more but this is off the top of my head.

They should lower the price of the movies to $9.99 - $12.99. I the find UMD format appealing but not enough so to spend $20 on one devoid of any extras and lower quality sound.
