Friday, 11 November 2011 09:38 GMT By Johnny Cullen

SCEJ’s announced this morning a brand new program, known as UMD Passport, where PSP owners will be able to bring most of their catalogue to Vita.

The scheme will allow those with a UMD collection bring their titles to the new handheld for a discounted price.

All that’s needed is to download a program for PSP from December 6, as well as the UMD of the game you’re looking to push onto Vita. Once you’ve put in the UMD and done everything to register the game, you’ll be able to download it for Vita at a discount.

Some of the titles part of the scheme include Persona 3 and Gran Turismo, with third-party publishers including Square Enix, Sega, Capcom and Konami onboard.

Vita launches in Japan on December 17. It comes to Europe and the US in February.

Thanks, Andriasang.
