Sony announces UMD pricing

heavy liquid

Recommended Posts



SPE representatives reveal that while the final lineup of releases has yet to be set, Japan will see its first UMD releases in April, similar to America. Pricing for Japan is expected to be in the same range as current DVDs, which the representatives state is between 3,800 yen and 3,980 yen.


DVDs tend to cost more in Japan than they do in America, so we expect far cheaper pricing for the US. However, if pricing strategies remain the same in all territories, you should expect to pay DVD prices for UMD movies in April.


I think the format would have a better chance if it was a bit cheaper than DVDs. I can't see it doing well going up against DVDs at the same price.
