TGS 09′: No UMD Conversion Program For Existing PSP Users Who Upgrade To The PSP Go

leave a comment »

In what can only be seen as a major kick in the balls for people looking to upgrade from their old PSP to the new PSP Go, Sony have announced that due to ‘legal’ and ‘technical’ reasons, there is no programme in place to allow the trading in of a UMD copy of a game for it’s digitally distributed equivalent.

In a statement to gaming website Kotaku, a spokesperson for Sony said “We were evaluating a UMD conversion programme, but due to legal and technical reasons we will not be offering the programme at this time,”.

I’m sorry Sony, offering three free games from an (old) selection of sixteen titles is *no* substitution whatsover for people being able to bring across their existing library of games to their new PSP Go console.

What a way to dump on your loyal PSP auidence.
