PSPgo – UMD conversion program not possible for “legal reasons”

Friday, 25th September 2009 07:22 GMT By Patrick Garratt


SCEA’s finally confirmed that there will be no UMD conversion program for those upgrading to the discless PSPgo next week.

“We were evaluating a UMD conversion program, but due to legal and technical reasons we will not be offering the program at this time,” a rep for the firm’s US arm told Kotaku.

End of. Come to Europe, Americans: You get free games.

    ie: Our lawyers cost billions, so it’s technically more beneficial for us to force you to download the games you already have from the PSN store. Why pay once when you can pay twice? \o/

    Glad I cancelled my pre-order for this now. This was the deal-breaker.

    Did people really ever expect this to go ahead?

    The whole PSP Go! thing has been something of a clusterfuck, tbh. They don’t seem to know what they’re doing with it most of the time.

    Didn’t see that one coming!

    Okay Sony, you’ve given me ample reason NOT to buy a PSP GO.

    Now give me a reason to buy one.

    PSP Go!Away would be a more appropriate name, there’s no reason to buy one of these overpriced white elephants.

    I really think the PSPgo will flop now.

    It costs more than a 360 Elite for fuck sake.
