American Vita Will Not Support UMD Passport

You want UMD on Vita?! Too damn bad!


Sony has announced that it will not release the UMD Passport program for when the Vita releases in the United States.

The Passport program allows Japanese PSP users to catalog their UMD versions of their games on PSN, and after paying a title transfer fee (different depending on the publisher/game) they would be able to download that game on their Vita.

PSP games purchased off of the Playstation Network will not be affected. These titles can still be accessed and played on the Vita.
