Sony Reveals UMD Passport For Transferring PSP Titles To PS Vita

Sony Reveals UMD Passport For Transferring PSP Titles To PS Vita

November 11, 2011 | By Mike Rose




Sony today announced a new initiative that will allow PSP owners to bring their previously-purchased UMD games to the upcoming PS Vita handheld.

The program, called UMD Passport, will be made available to Japanese PSP owners on December 6, a couple of weeks ahead of the PS Vita launch on December 17, reports Andriasang.

Users will be able to download a UMD Registration Application from the PlayStation Store to their PSP, and register old UMD games with the application.

Once registered, digital versions of these games can then be bought from the PlayStation Store for a cut price, ranging from ¥400 ($5.17) to ¥2400 ($31.03).

At launch, the initiative will support around 200 UMD titles from 40 different companies, with titles such as Gran Turismo, Persona 3 and Phantom Kingdom supported.

There is as-of-yet no word regarding when other regions outside of Japan will receive the UMD Passport functionality.
