Sony making UMD PSP movies cheaper
Sony is reportedly preparing to cut the price of new UMD videos by $10 to $25 less than the UMD initial pricing.
This will see many new releases hit the market for a maximum of $15.
To quote: "We want to provide a legal offering from the studios, ... and itís an easier conversation to have with them now," said John Koller, director of hardware marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment America.
"Thereís a lot of positive momentum with the PSP."
To make sure consumers buy UMDs this go around, Sony is shaving new release list prices to $9.99 to $14.99. That is $10 to $25 less than UMD initial pricing a few years ago. More PlayStation 3 News...

This is way too late. Noone really wanted to buy UMD's when they were more costly than a DVD with less quality of picture/sound. This should have been from day one. Then people would have bought the UMD inaddition to the DVD...

That is very true, now you buy the dvd, rip it, convert it, any load it onto your memory card.
Too little too late.
