    Second news is about the number of accounts a UMD can be used which is 1.

    Final bit of news is on compatability

    1 account will be a disappointment for those who switch PSNs to different regions a lot, this means you need to pick the region with the best gaming experience for your situation. I'm sticking to Japanese PSN. I hope Armored Core Silent Line Portable or Gundam vs Gundam Next Plus gets in eventually.

    Great, so we can map some controls to the second analogue?

    I believe Guild posted something similar, no?

    Anyway, this is a great alternative for those still have UMDs. I didn't expect Sony to do this.

    I think it would be best if there was a set price regardless of how many or what games you wanted to transfer e.g. you pay something like £10/$15/whatever yen (probably more I guess) to actually download the transfer program then once the UMDs are registered, they are added to your account for "free".


    I'm thinking of possibly registering your existing UMDs, getting them on my account, downloading them on my PSP, then selling my UMDs for more than or equal to the discounted download price.


    Also: I wonder if it will let you register imported games? For example, I have a US PSP with some US games and some EU games. I wonder if it would let me register them all?

    I agree with you on the need for a one time price for the program.

    No, it will only register games from the region the account comes from so for example if you want Japanese UMDs on your Vita, you will need a Japanese account and since they are limited to 1 account only you will need to make a decision on which account to stay with.

    Pretty much.
