SCEE Undecided On UMD Passoprt Program

Sony PS Vita News

After a report revealed that the UMD Passport Program will not be heading to North America, there were some unanswered questions on whether the program will make its way to Europe and PAL territories. According to Eurogamer, it seems that SCEE is still undecided on whether they will implement the program, which will allow Playstation Portable owners to obtain digital copies of their games at a discounted price.

The comment was made by a Sony Europe representative:

We’ve not made any announcement about the program in the UK and Europe as yet. We’ll let you know as and when that changes.

So far, the Land of the Rising Sun (Japan) is the only territory where PSP owners can use the program for their libraries. However, if you still want to play PSP games on the Vita, then you would have to buy the game of the Playstation Store at its current price.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
