Why should we have to pay for a game that we already pyed for again >_< I think I will hold onto my PSP to play my UMD's.

Most likely to prevent people from cheating the system and claiming games for free. The UMD tracking is another safeguard against that.

How is there going to be support for a right analog stick if developers never coded that into their PSP games?

Pretty sure it means use the right analog stick instead of the left one instead.

No, that would be pretty awkward. I wish I could remember where I read it but there's going to be support for the second stick. I don't know how it'll be done and Sony didn't mention anything about it with today's announcement.

That's a pretty crappy move, considering gamers already paid for these UMDs. Can't they simply use the unique ID of the UMD as enough proof that the person owns the game?

Yet another reason the Vita won't be getting my cash. I don't own any UMDs, but if that's how Sony treats their longtime fans, I'm not interested.
Agreed and I'm a pretty big Sony fan. Regardless though I'm going to buy it, it's not region locked and it has a solid lineup.

I think I'm going to just hang on to my PSP after I get a Vita (which will probably be a long time from now),I don't want to have to pay money just to play games I've had for years on it.

I'm def not getting rid of my PSP anytime soon, it's a 1000 still chugging along just fine, with nothing replaced but the occasional faceplate =] i will be getting a vita eventually though, just not right at launch
