PlayStation Vita Backwards Compatibility Plan: Re-Buy UMD Games At A Discount


imagePlayStation Vita is backwards compatible with PSP games, but only downloadable versions. So, what happens to that stack of UMDs you own? Sony Computer Entertainment Japan is working on a plan to migrate PSP owners to PlayStation Vita.


According to an interview with Dengeki PlayStation, SCEJ is considering a special offer where UMD owners can buy a downloadable version of the same title at a special price. No details were offered on how much each game will cost or if a similar program is under review for North America.


PlayStation Vita makes its debut in Japan on December 17.
