A simple trade in your old UMD's for the new format should be do-able I think.
Doesn't look much different from the original PSP.
Sony isn't doing well in production, I see.
neither does the 3DS to all the other DS's
whats your point?
Do Sony honestly expect us to believe that? They said exactly the same thing for the PSP Go, it was the reason most people even bought the damn thing, yet they never bothered with a way to transfer UMDs to your PSP Go at all! Sorry guys, but don't go buying an NGP thinking you'll one day be able to play your UMD games on it. You never will. Sony hasn't cared about backwards compatibility since 2006. The only reason the NGP will play PSP games bought off of PSN is because it won't actually cost them anything to put in that function.
The ignorance on this board astounds me.
now copying.. Nintendo AGAIN!!!
I don`t if it is true what Wintrale is saying but if it is I think that`s a valid criticism...
The idea though is pretty good and I think people would be happy to not having to swop games anymore (at least for PSP games ).
Not really a "valid criticism" since he doesn't even take into account why they may have given up on it and see it from there point of view.
A PSPGo is pretty much a closed system, Sony was trying to accomplish two things:
1) See how the download only market would work.
2) To try and stop piracy on their system.
And for the most part, it worked. It wasn't until recently that they could run pirated PSP games. If they were to allow some sort of transfer to the PSP from UMD, that could lead to an exploit in itself. So its only natural to want to scrap the idea. If Nintendo were in their shoes, I'm very sure they would have done the exact same thing. The fact that they are going to re-release them on their new format could mean that they are very confident in the piracy protection in the system.
They offered like 5 free downloads, but you had to register them before you could download them. To people who bought the Go with a bunch of games it was a rip-off. However, people with very few games, or no games starting out, it was a perfect buy. I didn't buy it because I thought it was silly. The shelve at my local Gamestop were packed with Gos for months, and they started selling them at extremely low prices to get rid of them (Like 100 dollars apiece).
To be fair to Sony, they did say that it wasn't going to be possible before they released the system.
Investigating? Please. That's just another way of saying "just say it to shut them up, but lets just sit on our asses and act like we're doing shit to revolutionize gaming."
Citation needed. This entire post is inaccurate.
Actually it isn't. I even remembered reading on the net that they were "planning" on bringing out kiosks to game stores like EB or GameStop, or have a trade in where you trade in UMD's, and you get a voucher to download that game on the Go for free.
No they weren't. There was NEVER any mention of a UMD copy scheme...people just got carried away with the idea and ran with it, blaming Sony for not going through with something that they never promised to. What was actually said was along the lines of
Then cite it like xist said...
except it has 3d and more power the ngp is just a psp with more power
How is that Sony's fault that they bought a PSPGo? They should have bought a 1/2/3000 if it were the case. Sony never promised that they were going to make it, they said they were looking into it. They can't accomplish every little thing and satisfy everyone. Nintendo removed GBA compatibility starting with the DSi, everyone bitched about it then they got over it. The DSi had accomplished nothing and not a significant upgrade much like the PSPGo. And if you wanted to play your GBA games, they didn't upgrade from a DSL. The very same applies to the Go.
i remember a mega64 video showing how he literally broke his pspgo to put a UMD in it and when he returned it to the store, he asked for a ds lol
i dont think sony would do the same mistake twice
