PSP Firmware 6.0 Coming Soon, Not A Major Update

It’s been a long time coming, but Sony has finally revealed its plans for allowing PSP owners to digitally transfer their UMD games onto to their new PSP Go’s. And the plans are thus: there are no plans to support such a service.

Sony told Kotaku, “We were evaluating a UMD conversion program, but due to legal and technical reasons we will not be offering the program at this time.” Considering that Sony has been rather tight lipped about this whole thing for a while now, this latest news doesn’t come as that big of a shock. Although, I would imagine that quite a few PSP owners will have some strong words for Sony on this one.

In the hopes of quelling potential frustrations, Sony has also announced that it will be offering PSP owners in the UK looking to upgrade to a PSP Go three free digitally transferred games of their choice.


As Eurogamer reports, PSP owners can sign on to the PlayStation Network and will be eligible to receive a voucher via email that will be good for any three of the following games:

Like I said, this deal is currently only planned for the UK, but it seems unlikely that it won't land stateside in the near future.

What do you think of Sony abandoning its plans for a UMD transfer service? Will that influence your decision to purchase a PSP Go? Do three free games make up for not (eventually) being able to covert your current PSP library onto your PSP Go?
