There is no way to make it work. The PSP version of PES 2013 is not certified on the Vita, so the Content Manager will not transfer it to the Vita, from a PS3 or anywhere else. The reason should be obvious. Konami released a Vita version of PES 2013 that it would no doubt prefer that Vita owners play, so it isn't going to certify the PSP version on the Vita also. The Vita version will probably be in the Playstation Store after this Tuesday's update. It was released this week, but apparently it didn't make last Tuesday's update.

I also bought the game thinking it could work on Vita, since in the PSN Store and the Playstation website the game was listed as compatible with PES and PS Vita.
I contacted the support and they confirmed that the game does not work and i am trying to get a refund right now, since i don´t have a PSP and just bought the game because it was showed in the PSN that it was compatible with PSP and PS Vita.
Also the strange thing is that i believe that the European version of the PES 2013 for PSP works on Vita, have no idea why the US version does not work, maybe is just a matter of certifying tha game for the Vita...
If i get a refund or if they update me about the possibility of the game work in the Vita in the future i will post the information here.

You never have anything to lose by asking for a refund, but you don't have a strong argument for one. The Playstation web site stated that the game was supported on the PSP and the Vita. That is true, but there are different versions of the game for each. The web site did not say that the PSP version would run on the Vita. The Playstation Store page for the PSP version of the game does not indicate that it is compatible with the Vita either. It was very optimistic to assume that the PSP version of the game, which is a third less money than the Vita version, would be certified for the Vita where it would compete with a Vita version.
The "good" news from your perspective is that it isn't clear if Konami is even going to release the Vita version of the game. It was scheduled to come out on the 22nd with the rest, but it isn't listed on Amazon.com at all; so apparently the retail release was cancelled. Maybe the PSN release was cancelled too, in which case Konami probably will certify the PSP game on the Vita in the near future.
Let us know how you make out though, bearing in mind that granting a refund to one customer does not obligate Sony to grant a refund to other customers in the same circumstances. The official policy is still no refunds.

There's no version of PES 2013 for Vita and probably won't have, since even game producer, Konami, did not announce the game for Vita so far.
I have a picture from both playstation website and PSN where the game PES 2013 was listed compatible with PSP and PS Vita, also the European version of the game is still listed as being compatible with both platforms and i believe that the game can be buy directly from the Vita, don't know why the US version is not compatible.
I never asked for a refund, i prefer that the game works in Vita, the refund was suggested by the support itself as a solution for the problem.
