    I may be having a memory lapse, but what's UMD? (I went to your site
    and searched, but couldn't find an explanation.)

    Does the UMD disk play on regular players? I assume with a name like
    Universal that it would.

    -- but you never know with marketing.

    Hi Stan,

    It stands for Universal Media Disc, a variation of the DVD specifically for
    the Sony Playstation 2. Many of the larger studios are releasing their
    titles on this format.

    UMD is actually for the PSP Playstation Portable, not Playstation 2.
