Default Digital PSP sales to end in 2016

Sony’s first handheld is being removed from the PlayStation Store in Japan on March 31st 2016, the platform holder has announced.

The UMD Passport service, which allowed players to pay a small fee to convert their physical games into a digital version, is being retired on the same date.

Owners of the portable system will still be able to download their already purchased content on PS3, Vita, PC or mobile and transfer it across.

The move follows the end of production of the PSP in Japan last year.

Of course, the digital purge means the effective death of the UMD drive-less PSP Go (pictured), while standard PSP owners will still be able to purchase pre-owned boxed software – if they can find it.
