Hey, America ... no soup for you! Vita
apparently means no discounted downloads of your beloved disc-based PSP
games as Kotaku
won't be offering its "UMD Passport" service in the US. Since December, Sony has let existing Japanese PSP owners upgrade UMD games to Vita downloadable copies for around ¥500-1,000 ($6.50 - $13). Penny-pinching US gamers can perhaps console themselves with the fact that they can still get a discount
for digital downloads of Vita games. Well, that or make hungry eyes for free at Vitas displayed in kiosks
at select stores.
