Sony Planning UMD to PSP Go Game Transfer

Sony is planning a system which will allow owners of physical UMD-based PSP games to receive digital copies for play on the download-only PSP Go, according to Gizmodo.

"We're in the midst of putting together a good will program," director of hardware marketing John Koller told the site, "A short term good-will program that would continue for years afterward," though he revealed very little of what it will entail.

Koller likened the program to the Portable Copy system that allows the download of Blu-ray movies onto the PSP--but he says users will not be ripping their UMDs.

Koller mentioned that Sony is "looking at what kind of games will be offered," suggesting that not all games will be available for transfer from UMD onto the PSP Go.
