A rumor has appeared on Wednesday that has Logitech developing an add-on UMD drive for the PSP Go portable gaming console, which only has the ability to download content or transfer it using memory cards. The add-on would attach to the back of the PSP Go and make it bulky, according to an unnamed source speaking to CVG. Likely, a software update of some sort would also be required in order for the PSP Go to play back UMD movies and games.
Logitech UK maintains it has no idea of such a device, saying its US arm may be developing it, but there has been no response to a query regarding this. Sony has also not yet commented on this rumor.
The PSP Go is criticized for the absence of a UMD drive, with at least one Dutch retailer refusing to carry it as it renders UMD game sales and re-sales obsolete.
