Information About Universal Media Discs (UMDs)

Universal Media Discs (UMDs) can store a broad range of digital content, including games, music and films, and are playable only in the PlayStation Portable console. UMDs are not playable in DVD players.

To find a UMD title, type the title in the search box in the DVD store. Alternatively, type "UMD" in the DVD search box for a more general search of UMD titles. UMDs have the label "[UMD Mini for PSP]" in the title.

  • All UMDs are released in widescreen–comparable to the 16:9 screen ratio
  • Like DVDs, UMDs are region-coded; UMD movies sold by Amazon.co.uk are encoded for UK and Europe and may not work on PSP consoles bought in other countries
  • It's not yet possible to purchase blank UMDs
