UMD Passport is an application for PSPthat allows users to register UMD games to their PSN accounts, and download them to their PS Vita for a nominal fee. The Japanese have been able to use this system but not all games were supported and the prices varied greatly.  So it is of no suprise that Sony has confirmed that the scheme will not be available to US Vita buyers when the system launches later this month.

“SCEA will not be offering the UMD Passport program. U.S. consumers who already own digital versions of select PSP titles will be able to seamlessly transfer those games to their PS Vita system. What’s great for PS Vita owners is that they can enjoy PSP games with upscaled video quality that’s ideal for the system’s 5-inch OLED screen, along with controls that are optimized for its features such as the dual analog sticks. More than 250 PSP titles (including minis) will be available at the launch of PS Vita, and hundreds of additional titles will be available post-launch.”
