World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) will jump into the PlayStation Portable fray with UMD titles for the PSP this September.
WWE will release two of its top-selling DVD titles: Hard Knocks: The Chris Benoit Story and The Monday Night War in UMD format.
Both titles will include the complete main feature and a limited number of extras.
In addition, the highly anticipated new release titled The Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior will also be available on the UMD video format.
All three titles will be released Sept. 27 in the U.S. and in the U.K. via WWE's European licensee, Clearvision.
Additional UMD releases will be announced in the future.
“We are excited to bring our home video catalog and new release titles to the UMD video format,” said Donna Goldsmith, SVP of WWE Consumer Products. “We are constantly looking for new ways to exploit our home video library and take advantage of technological advances.”
