    The UMD format was created specifically for the PSP. Not only for games but also for movies. The UMD disc is an 8cm disc that comes in a caddy and can store 1.8GB dual layer. I'm sure that Sony will release other compatible devices and will probably try to convince other manufacturers to do the same.

    Apparently UMDs will only be pressed by Sony and won't be available in a "UMD-R" style format to burn at home. I suppose this makes sense from a piracy pov, but its a real kick in the :eek: for a new format. I can't see many people buying both the DVD and UMD versions of a film (or just the UMD).
