SCEA has today announced a new collaborative deal with MTV that will bring favorite MTV programming to the PSP’s UMD video format. And that’s effective immediately too, as the first wave of 10 MTV UMDs hits retail starting this week at $14.99 a pop, including the following titles:

“Beavis & Butt-head: The Mike Judge Collection,” Vol. 2 and 3
“Jackass,” Vol. 2 and 3
“Wildboyz,” Vol. 1 and 2
“Viva La Bam,” Vol. 2, 3, and 4
“Aeon Flux: The Complete Animated Collection” (2-disc set)

From here on out, MTV UMD titles will continue to be released on an “ongoing basis.” So keep an eye peeled for additional UMD content announcements soon.

“This collaboration with MTV is a key first step in meeting the needs of our consumers, who are utilizing PSP as a video player more than ever and are thirsting for more content, particularly short-form videos,” said Phil Rosenberg, senior vice president of sales and business development, SCEA. “MTV’s programming is hugely popular, and SCEA can utilize our internal resources to appropriately manage the publishing and distribution of these hit shows on UMD. This demonstrates our commitment to supporting the UMD video format by delivering what consumers want to watch at the right price. SCEA will continue to license movie, TV, and other video content, leveraging our sales and marketing strengths, as a strategic focus moving forward.”

“We’re very happy to be working with SCEA to bring our content to the PSP,” said Paul DeGooyer, senior vice president of home entertainment, games and music for MTV Networks’ Music & Logo Group. “Our viewers consistently choose to experience our programming on a number of platforms, and the PSP is a particularly well-loved device among our audience. We’re very pleased that PSP users will be able to watch their favorite MTV shows when they are on the go—plus, the shows look fantastic on the PSP’s LCD screen.”
