E3: PSPgo to get UMD-to-digital solution

Sony promises one before launch.

Sony is working on a solution for PSPgo owners who want to turn their UMD games into digital versions.

"We're in the midst of putting together a goodwill program," Sony America's hardware marketeer John Koller told Gizmodo. "We'll be unveiling that soon [because] we actually think there's a significant group that will be upgrading from the [PSP] 1000... In the past we've seen a 20-25 per cent trade-up factor, and I assume that's going to be the case here.

Sony America spokesperson Brian Keltner added to Kotaku that he hopes a solution will be found by PSPgo launch on 1st October (Europe, US).

The PSPgo was unveiled proper at Sony's E3 conference. The smaller and lighter machine with fancy sliding screen will only play digital content and costs EUR 250.

Sony plans to launch all future PSP games on the PlayStation Network and in shops, simultaneously.
