Last month, word came out that the Japanese version of Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational
for the PlayStation Vita included an online pass
. With the embargo on North American Vita coverage lifted, we can now confirm that the American version does indeed feature an online pass. Of the Vita games we've acquired so far, Wipeout 2048
is the only other title to feature an online pass.
Those are currently the only titles with passes available on the US PlayStation Store, so it would seem that the rest of the launch lineup is free of the online pass's ten-dollar grip -- for now.
