The question that has been on everyone’s minds regarding the PSP Go (“Um, what do I do with all my games that I bought) has been answered, though somewhat vaguely. John Koller, Sony’s Director of Hardware Marketing, said that there will be a system in place for people to get their UMD-based games onto their PSP Go. No, you won’t be ripping the UMDs directly; Koller suggested it would be similar to how you’d get Blu-ray movies onto your PSP.

In all likelihood it’ll be free, although it will probably also have the kind of crippling DRM you’d expect from a system like this. Hey, at least they’re making it possible.

I wonder, is 16GB going to be enough? I was speculating that while compressing game assets to make games more bite-sized isn’t a good idea, they will probably compress the hell out of in-game video and music.
