Sorry UMD owners but according to Sony there will not be a way for you to convert your UMD’s to a digital state in order to play it on the PSPGo. When asked by Gamer blog Kotaku on reasons why the option wouldn’t be available upon launch, a Sony spokesperson replied “We were evaluating a UMD conversion program, but due to legal and technical reasons we will not be offering the program at this time,”
When Sony announced the new revision to there PSP product many had one question on their minds. What do I do about my UMDs? It seems that there are many roadblocks ahead blocking Sony from being able to give consumers such a option. As it stands now consumers are going to have re-buy their favourite PSP games from off the PSP store. Or wait for Sony to overcome these roadblocks with an alternative. Until then stay tuned to Playstation University for an update on the situation as soon as it happens.
