I'm sure they said the same thing when the PSPGo was going to be released.

The pspGo didn't use flash cards for games, it was download only.

Actually, this is a rather important concern for me and will impact whether I decide to go to the NGP from my current PSP-2000. Over the years I have built up a rather large PSP UMD catalogue, with many more movies than games. And, to be honest, I really am not interested in re-purchasing movies/games for the NGP that I already have legally for the PSP-2000. If SONY can find a way to legally allow legally owned UMDs to be transfered to the NGP (a method that benefits all parties involved, including the companies that made thew UMD content) then purchasing an NGP becomes a very easy choice. If not, and all the UMDs are relegated to more-or-less obscurity (i.e. just PSP use) then where is the incentive, except being cutting edge with dual sticks, for current PSP owners to upgrade? Are the PSP-1000-3000 owners to be the ones to loose out and have to pay again for something they already legally own?

I do not know if it will work, but perhaps SONY et al. can allow for each legally owned UMD to be registered and downloaded to one NGP via the code on the back of the UMD disk? This way the game or movie can be "locked" to a single NGP and not repeatedly downloaded to multiple NGPs, such as a UMD that is resold through another place like GameStop or eBay? Thus once that disk is registered a single time, it can no longer be transferred to another NGP. This may suck a bit if one buys a UMD used from a place like GameStop, but it is the "risk" one takes by buying used. What do you all think?

I totally agree with you, Santeh...Sony should think of some other way than flash card for UMD games...I mean, it's still good but not good enough for folks who own lots of UMD games and movies, including myself.

Another way is Sony can make a portable UMD drive for PSP2 (connect through USB port)??? At least gamers can enjoy existing games or movies without recollecting or buying classic UMD games again on flash card???

Although downloading good for folks with fast and efficient internet connections...I think may gamers will shun for it just because of shitty internet connections (in some countries including Australia, cough*)....

Yeap. Game flash cards are still attractive for some players who have limited amounts of downloading data from ISP or even memory card.

I think even some new games for PSP2 can come out optionally on flash card for convenient use or purchase!

Honestly, I do in a way feel for people but it's a next gen console. People shouldn't expect it to be immediately backwards compatible, and considering Sony doesn't even sell the PS3's that can play PS2 games anymore I don't see why people are surprised.

Besides, in all honesty, why did you waste your money building up a movie library on UMD? It's not like it was a big format and only recently has sunken into obscurity. From the very beginning it's been a format largely ignored and only functional on the PSP. It just lacks common sense to invest in a limited format.

I hope my favorite PSP game is re-released in that format,but I somehow doubt it will be,considering it was never released on the PSN either...
