    Is this the first step to finally kill UMD discs?
    Will the PSP 4000 no longer have an UMD-disc drive?

    Yeah i think we’re getting close to drive-less PSPs, the next version could easily just have an onboard hard drive…it better had if Sony thinks people will really buy first party memory sticks at their current price!

    A proper on board hdd for the PSP would make me buy a new one.
