UMD sales take off [via Ars Technica]
i agree with Elle in this story in Ars Technica about how UMD sales are surprising. i personally see the price tag at about $10 more for a UMD than a DVD and wonder why I would buy one...yet i am intrigued. i want to watch movies on my PSP, and yes, i'm sure i can find any one of 10 software packages that will rip them to a memory stick - so why can't Sony make these things cheaper? at any rate, i didn't expect sales to take off like this but if you go to target these days, the selections of UMDs are starting to look pretty impressive. and when i was recently in Tokyo, you should see the music video releases that have come out on UMD.
netflix, will you please carry UMDs?
