Rumor of the Day: New PSP Has No UMD Drive

Rumor of the Day: Sony plans to drop the UMD format on the not-yet-announced or confirmed new PlayStation Portable.

Gaming insider and Acclaim developer David Perry posted the following on both his twitter stream and his Facebook page:

"I hear Sony FINALLY has the PSP 2. And thank goodness, they've removed the stupid battery-sucking UMD disc drive. I'm excited!"

It isn't known how a new PSP would store, as well as load movies and games. But we imagine backward compatibility could prove be a huge issue with a UMD-less Portable. Who would buy a "new" PSP if they couldn't play their old games on it?

The UMD (Universal Media Disc) format has drawn criticism for its proprietary nature and lack of writers for recording your own material. A UMD-less PSP presents the problem of backwards compatibility with older games and movies.

This is an unconfirmed rumor about a device's specific feature. Like all Internet rumors, it could easily not be true. Another part of the rumor says that Sony plans to reveal the device at E3.I guess we'll have to wait until the beginning of June to find out!
