A UMD drive in the Vita TV device would have made it absolutely perfect.

Japan has that? They can play BbS and CC on a Vita? Lucky bastards.


Actually, no, they can't. UMD Passport doesn't work for those titles, because they have to be on the PSN Store. They're not.

Actually, there is a device that allows you to convert UMD into digital. Unfortunately, it's only available in Japan. Everyone should have the ability to take advantage of it. :-(


It doesn't work the way you think it does. I'm pretty sure you can only use it with titles that are already on the PSN Store - you put the UMD in and then you connect to the store, and it'll let you download a digital copy at a reduced price.

No

Anyone whining about the UMD passport doesn't even know what the hell it does.

All they did was allow you to register very few games and get a digital code for a discount

It wasn't worth the effort to even have it.

Most of the games that worked with it, aren't anything people wanted or even heard of.

Adding extra cost on production on a failed technology would make things perfect?

I don't think so Lordy.

That thing should stay dead. If not, a seperate attachment for those who really want one.

UMDs were awful. I'm really glad they left them out of the Vita.

There is nothing stopping them from making a UMD USB attachment later. This is not a portable Vita where the addition of a UMD for BC would have just turned the system into a bulky mess.
