    UMD Passport not in america

    Vita 'UMD Passport' won't be offered in US | Joystiq


    It will not be possible to get discounted Vita downloads of the disc-based UMD games you bought for PSP in the US. A Sony representative told Kotaku that the "UMD Passport" service will not be available to American Vita owners.

    Of course, you'll still be able to buy any digitally-distributed PSP games through the Vita's PlayStation Store and play them on the new hardware -- and you'll be able to play the PSN games you already bought on your PSP. But those UMD games will be of no use unless you keep your PSP.

    Meanwhile at sony

    Damn, that sucks. Doesn't really matter though because I won't be selling my PSP, and now people can't bitch and say Sony are being greedy arseholes by trying to make us by our PSP games twice.

    Although I agree that it's lame giving Japan something and screwing over the rest of us, I understand the other side of it too; if people wanna play their PSP games, they should keep their PSP. I didn't sell my PS2 expecting to play PS2 games elsewhere either.

    Out of all countries in the world, why make it unavailable to the US?

    A big load of bullshit to me.

    Makes sence to me because not EVERY title on UMD is on the PSN store such as Kingdom Hearts and FF7 CC so to enjoy those games you would have to keep the discs. I was a sucker and bought the psp go so I still am able to re-download all those psp games I bought to my Vita
