In regards to the possibility of PS Vita being able to play the downloadable PS2 Classics games on the Playstation Store, Shuhei Yoshida answered with a simple “doubt it.”
He also clarified that the digital release of Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational includes the online pass:
DL version of Hot Shots Golf also includes online play ticket, no need to buy a separate voucher to play online.
Furthermore, he confirmed that the PS Vita memory cards are region free. So Europeans can import the 32 GB card from North America:
You may, you may not. There’s no region lock on the cards, so American ones might be found in Europe. SRP $99.99 in the US.
The PS Vita will be released in North America starting on February 15th with the first edition bundle.
