No UMD Passport in North America

The UMD Passport program, which Japanese gamers have access to, will not be making its way to the US or Canada.

According to Kotaku, Sony have confirmed to them that the novel new idea won’t be available in the region.

The program would have allowed certain UMDs to be registered on a PSP (via the PSN) and then be downloaded on the Vita for a reduced price. Any PSP titles that were downloaded originally will of course still be accessible on the Vita.

Although nothing has been mentioned in regards to Europe and Australia just yet, I think we can safely assume this will be a Japan-exclusive feature.
