For the first time in India, Excel Home Videos in association with Twentieth Century Fox is releasing Movies that are compatible with gaming consoles. Says M N Kapasi, Managing Director, Excel Home Videos, “The initiative focuses on the ongoing convergence of various Media and enriching the Cinema experience for our viewers since it can be viewed in transit.”

The Movies are available on UMD (Universal Media Disc) and can be viewed on Play Station Portable gaming console. The Movies that have been initially released on the format include Alien, Alien Vs. Predator, Aliens, Day After Tomorrow, Garfield: The Movie, I - Robot, Ice Age, Independence Day, Mr. And Mrs. Smith, Phone Booth, Speed, Here's Something About Mary, Transporter, The X-Men (1 & 2).

The UMD format is an optical disc medium developed by Sony for use on the PlayStation Portable. It can hold up to 1.8 gigabytes of data, which can include games, movies, music, or a combination. In an effort to combat piracy and maintain exclusive control, the UMD Disk format is proprietary, and neither blank media nor media writers are available to the public. The primary application for UMD discs is as a storage medium for PSP games, although the format later started being used for the storage of motion pictures, and to a lesser degree, television shows for playback on the PSP. For markets like Japan and UK, the initiative has fuelled the sales of gaming consoles. Adds M N Kapasi, “The Initiative will go a long way in converging these Media and also checking piracy to a large extent.“
