REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Sony Unveils UMD Passport Program for Japan's Vita Launch

Posted on Tuesday, November 15 @ 08:35:12 Eastern by


Got a lot of PSP games? Want to transfer them to the Vita when it comes out? Get your wallet ready. Although it's not clear if something similar will come to North America, Sony's UMD Passport Program for Japan is not a good sign.

It's quite a few steps, which is a pain in the ass. Even worse, you have to re-pay to get the UMD games on your Vita. First, you must download a special UMD registration app on the PSP. Then, insert the UMD you want on your Vita into the PSP, and register it with the PlayStation Network. From there, you'll be able to pay to turn the UMD into a downloadable form, which you can then download onto the Vita.

Prices range from 500-1500 yen, which ranges from about $5 to $20 per title. And there's only a select list of titles that will be offered. At least for now.

Sounds like a clusterfuck to me, but it's good that Sony is trying to come up with something. For the PSPgo, they just said "fuck it" and skipped out on any UMD conversion altogether.

Let's just hope they get their shit together before the Vita's launch in North America this February.
