Sony has revealed a fresh initiative that it hopes will encourage PSP owners to make the step up to PlayStation Vita when it is released in Japan in a month’s time.
Andriasang has first word of the ‘UMD Passport’. Once downloaded it will allow gamers to purchase digital version of their UMD titles for a ‘discounted price’ of between 4 and 12.
Gamers need access to their current PSP system and all the games they own on UMD that they wish to register on the service.
The total catalogue of games will be limited to around 200 titles from 40 publishers.
Lest we forget though – this is still asking gamers to buy titles for a second time, no matter how cheaply.
UMD Passport will be released on December 6th in Japan.
