    no UMD support. You'll only be able to play the ones on PSN for download, and they will be upscalled to fill in the Vita's screen.

    You will be able to play games that you've bought from the Playstation Store on the Vita though there isn't 100% compatibility so some games might not work.

    I would think Sony would release a list of those games at some point.

    To sum it up:
    UMDs will not work on the PSV
    Digital Downloads will, most of them

    Do you enjoy slow loading and reading discs in a portable system?

    Wow that's kinda dissapointing. I was really hoping to play my old psp games. Since I've never been able to hack mine I bought like 20 psp games lol.

    In terms of US UMDs, I don't really care as much; however it sucks for imported UMDs. :\ Would have loved to have played Gundam vs Gundam Next+ and Climax Heroes Fourze on the Vita. :(

    Really? When i use UMDs (well i only own one, Dissidia 012) i feel like its chewing up my disc with the terrible noises it makes and it takes FOREVER to load anything.

    It sucks but some UMDs maybe a part of the new download program so you can play the ones you owned on the Vita at a later date btw are you getting Gundam Extreme VS.

    Absolutely. :D Only thing that stinks is that it comes out the same day as Climax Heroes Fourze (Which I preordered on Wii and PSP as well). XD

    I see what you mean, Mario Kart 7 comes out on the same day as well (due to having a JP 3DS).
