No UMD Passport programme for US Vitas

Sony yet to confirm situation for PlayStation Vita in Europe

The UMD Passport programme available to Japanese PlayStation Vita users will not launch in America.

The handheld manufacturer confirmed the news to Kotaku, while SCEE spoke to Eurogamer, but remained vague on the situation for the Vita in Europe.

"We've not made any announcement about the program in the UK and Europe as yet. We'll let you know as and when that changes."

The UMD Passport service allows Japanese gamers to register their current UMD titles on their PSP, and then download them, for a small fee, to their new PlayStation Vita.

The Vita will launch in the UK and US on February 22.
