Sony's PlayStation Portable disc-based titles aren't going away anytime soon. During a session at the Game Developers Conference this past week, the company said it has no plans in abandoning the UMD format.
The session was meant to inform independent developers about the marketplace advantages that exist on the PlayStation platform. When discussing the PSP, the company said its UMD format is "alive and well" and that all retail games will continue to be available on both a UMD disc and digitally on the PlayStation Network store.
Sony also provided its latest life-to-date sales for the PSP platform. Since its North American release in 2005, sales have reached 17 million total units. Worldwide sales have now topped 60 million total units.
Last October, Sony released the PSPgo, a UMD drive-less version of the original PSP that requires users to download titles directly off the PlayStation Network store. During last year's Tokyo Game Show, the company said it would remain committed to both versions, calling it a "dual platform strategy." Sony was unable to provide a solution to owners with UMD games who upgraded to the PSPgo due to "legal and technical reasons."
