'No UMD conversion for PSP Go,' says Sony

Although Sony reps previously stated, or at least hinted at, the idea of having UMD-to-digital conversion software or hardware of some kind, that idea has officially been thrown in the trash. Also, along with the aforementioned statement, Sony has also stated that the UK "PSP Go rewards" promo will NOT be in effect in the U.S., which may prove to be a bad move on Sony's part. I predict Sony won't make nearly as much off the Go as was originally thought by Sony. According to a Sony rep in an interview with GameSpot, "We were evaluating a UMD conversion program, but due to legal and technical reasons we will not be offering the program at this time." But he did say "at this time." Perhaps in the future? We can only hope.
