    (Note - Title limit cut Scheme into Sche)

    The rumour mill has been fired up for ages wondering what Sony intended to do to placate current PSP owners loaded with UMD's which would be incompatible with the PSPGo....a 1-1 trade in scheme was probably the most popular idea. Well hold your breath for the Sony Masterplan!

    atleast my theory of registering some kind of serial number from your game is close enough.

    My previous theory is that you need to give a code ala-nitnendo-product code to sony and you'll be entitle to re-download it for free.

    Oh well.....

    What a crappy selection there for the US and Europe, I'll see what Japan has to offer me before getting one.

    So you just have to use your old PSP with the UMD to get a free download on the PSP Go? So why all the negative reactions? I'm sure the number of supported games will greatly increase. At least you can keep your UMDs and use them on the PSP Go as well. As far as I'm concerned, this is much better than trading them in.

    Edit: oh wait, you get three free games if you have a PSP with at least one UMD. Well, that kind of sucks because you still won't be able to play your old games.

    i actually got both, never really saw much out of them, basically Playstation, not Sony, never left a lasting impression. That doesn't mean i never bought their products, just never enjoyed them as much as compared to others.

    Just wait for the CFW and DIY.

    Still wont get one, button placement looks awful so will stick to an old PSP.

    It's still shitty compensation for former PSP owners. If you bought like 20 PSP games, all you get is 3 of them on the PSP Go? I mean, could they not do something like add a code for each game (like Club Nintendo does for points) to get that game for your PSP Go? I just think this system will flop. It's ahead of it's time, which is a good thing, but just sucks with the lack of backward compatability.

    I have no plans on getting a PSPgo, nor a PSP. But I noticed something amusing. Go buy the game, do this "rewards" thing, take the game back. That's 17 free games.

    Most retailers over here aren't even gonna stock many units. Can't blame them seeing actual game sales count more for their business, especially used games.
