Default One More Anacdotal Thread

I just came back from both Wal-mart AND Target.
No, this isn't about how many BD to HD discs were in each store (For the record, they are pretty much evenly matched, with Wal-mart carrying one of each title, Jet Li's Fearless on HD DVD in the DVD aisle, and Ghost Rider on BD in the PS3 game bin), but what I thought was weird was that BOTH stores had more films on UMD than on either hi-def format! Both of these chains had loudly and publicly dropped UMD as a dead format, but now it is back and healthier, seemingly, than HI DEF discs. Comments??

UMD lives on thanks to the PSP price cut. I've had a PSP for a while now, and I've never bought a single UMD. I just rip my DVDs and download movies, then simply transfer the file to the PSP. But for the lazy type, UMDs are fine if they are cheap.
