More details on Sony PlayStation Vita

Posted in PS Vita by Conner Flynn on June 9th, 2011

It was thought that the PlayStation Vita might be able to do video output using the multiport on the bottom, but now it is looking like that’s a big no according to the official FAQ. However, Sony exec Michael Denny said today that the PS Vita will be region-free just like the PS3. That’s some good news.

Sony has ruled out a UMD reader of any sort. No surprise there, but Sony says that it will “consider every possibility for support on bought UMD games,”. I wonder what they will do on that front. Nothing at the moment, but soon perhaps.

Sony PSP-4000 coming soon with UMD?

Posted in PSP by Conner Flynn on December 21st, 2009

There have been some rumors for a little while now about a PSP-4000 and some of them say that it might reinstate the UMD drive. Well, now it looks like an advertisement in a UK magazine for a PSP accessory has actually mentioned the PSP-4000.

Listing the supported devices for the PSP accessory, they show a PSP-4000 in the list. Many of you hate the UMD, but probably just as many would like the UMD drive back on the PSP. What do you think?

Sony axes UMD conversion program

Sony axes UMD conversion programHere’s some bad news for PSP owners who want to upgrade to the PSP Go when it’s released. Sony has killed the UMD conversion plan. The idea was that PSP owners who had original UMD copies of their games would be entitled to free PSN downloads of the title, so that they can play it on the PSP Go when they upgrade.

But sadly “legal and technical reasons” put the axe on this plan. Which really sucks for PSP owners who have games they absolutely love. It sure doesn’t encourage PSP owners to upgrade and must feel like a slap in the face.

PSP 2 won’t have a UMD drive

New PSP to be a slider?According to Acclaim developer David Perry, the new Playstation Portable won’t feature a UMD disc drive.

“I hear Sony FINALLY has the PSP 2. And thank goodness, they’ve removed the stupid battery-sucking UMD disc drive. I’m excited!” Perry wrote on both his Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Whether or not he has actually seen the rumored new Playstation Portable himself is not clear. He may just be hearing rumors through the development community. Ditching the UMD wouldn’t be a surprise as it would cut costs and make the device slimmer. It fits with the other rumor, that the new PSP will be a slider, but have the same guts as its predecessor.

Homemade PSP phone is not what we were hoping for

Homemade PSP phone is not what we were hoping for
This guy got sick and tired of waiting on a real honest to god PSP phone, so he took matters into his own hands. He integrated what looks like a HAIER mobile phone with a touchscreen to the back of the PSP, getting rid of the UMD drive. He gets props for doing it and I don’t want to rain on anybody’s PSP parade, but um, well I have to say it’s a tad fugly isn’t it? Still, at least he’s doing something to birth a PSP phone into the world.
