The Twitter account for PlayStation Europe is taking questions from you regarding the PlayStation Vita, which is due for release next Wednesday.They will be accepting questions throughout the week from questions tagged with the hashtag #vitadeets.
So far there has been a few unanswered questions answered, we have put together a short list of answered questions to make it easy to find. We’ll add to it as the week goes to give you a one stop shop for Vita questions. Questions asked will be in Bold and answers will be Italics.
What’s happening with the UMD Passport scheme?
There is no news on the UMD Passport scheme for Europe at the moment. But you can download any PS Store PSP game onto the Vita.
What will come in the box and does it come with a memory card?
In the box will be a USB/power cable, six AR cards and a voucher to download some free AR games.
Will the PS Vita and PS3 pool trophies together?
Yes, you can have the device show all of your PlayStation Network trophies or just your Vita ones. (We think that the poster was asking whether you can see your Vita Trophies on PS3 and vice versa.)
Will Near work on both models?
Yes, Near works on both models.
Can I play my free (promotional) PSP Go games on the PS Vita?
Yes, you can.
If I import a game card will I be able to play in on my native account?

Do you have to buy a 3G PS Vita from Vodafone to get the free WipeOut?
That offer is exclusive to Vodafone. It has to be bought from a Vodafone store. (This doesn’t seem to be a definite answer as we were told by Vodafone that as long as you top-up a fiver with them on the sim card, you can buy the PS Vita from anywhere.)
Will the PS Store be live and updated for launch?
It will be ready for launch day.
If there is a game that is available on Vita and PS3 will it be shared trophies lists?
There will be seperate trophy lists. (They were not 100% on this though) _______________________________________________________________________________________________________
