More UMD Videos Announced
"Input, More Input!"
Today, Image Entertainment has announced they'll be bringing several videos to Sony's PlayStation Portable. The videos range from feature films, music performances, comedy and television programming. The Hillz, Short Circuit, Magic of Flight, Jamie Foxx's "I Might Need Security," Tupac Shakur: Thug Angel, Endless Summer, and Godsmack Live are among the dozen Image Entertainment has planed, with more videos expected to be revealed later in the year.
President and CEO of Image Entertainment, Martin Greenwald, stated: "Image is recognized as a major independent provider of entertainment on DVD, and we are looking to occupy a similar position with the new and exciting UMD format. Supporting UMD will enable Image to create additional revenue from our existing library of content, and to reach a segment of game retailers looking to stock both PSP hardware and UMD software. Later this year as Sony releases PSP players in other parts of the world, Image will release UMD software in those territories accordingly. These international opportunities are exciting, and will tap into a previously non-existent revenue stream."
