So that means, what, 600 will be unplayable?
smashcrashbash  +   894d ago
Just for now. Why do gamers always have to look at everything as glass half empty. Why can't you see it as you do have one hundred PS1 games to play instead of none at all?
Xof  +   894d ago
Because it was an advertised feature prior to launch and because the PSP and PS3 can play 100% of all PS1 games on the network.

It's not me looking at a glass half-empty, it's you telling a man wandering in the desert, half-dead, that he should appreciate getting a teaspoon's worth of water after he was offered a full glass.

Ok you cannot use a dying man in a desert as a good analogy with a gamer not being able to play PS1 games on the Vita. A gamer is not gonna die because he/she cant play PS1 games on the Vita lol
GribbleGrunger  +   894d ago
I can't remember Sony promising that PS1 games would be available for the Vita at launch. All PS1 games aren't available for the PS3 on PSN, and my glass is full. You just see your glass as half full because your glass is far too big
Axecution  +   892d ago
@Relientk (This is my deathbed, i lie here alone... ;)

The analogy was that he was promised a full glass of water (all psx games), but was given a teaspoon of water (a list of compatible games later on) >.>

There aren't 600 on the store anyway, are there? lol
FragGen  +   894d ago
I'll be happy if they hit the highlights in the first round and add stuff later. I'm sure that'll be the strategy. They'll look at the top sellers as the priority list.

FF7, MGS, Castlevania: Sotn, Crash Series, Spyro, they key/classic JRPGs, etc.

Then more obscure gems can be brought on over time. Maybe they'll let you transfer stuff via PS3 early too. Like they have for PSP titles. No reason to be negative, this is a very positive development, IMHO.

This is incredibly good news :D Cant wait to get my nostalgia on and start playing my favorite games on the go!
darkride66  +   893d ago
Meh. I get some people do the whole nostalgia thing, but I'm finding it hard to even play PSP games on my Vita. It just doesn't feel right. I want Vita games on my Vita, just like I've never cared to play PSone or PS2 games on my PS3. I bought the 60gb version because I still had PS2 games to play at the time, but I bought my PS3 to play PS3 games.

I'll never argue against consumer choice. I think it's fantastic they're making PSone games available for the Vita. I just won't be buying them any time soon. I'm just fine with Sound Shapes and Rayman Origins for now until something else comes out.

Edit: Ok I just looked at the release calendar for the next couple of months. Maybe I will look at some PSP or PSone games. :)

triplev16  +   893d ago
You will not be disappointed! I'm lovin' my Vita right now.
smashcrashbash  +   894d ago
@ Xof Ahhh!!! I see. So if you were in the desert with no water at all and someone offered you a teaspoon of water you would throw it away because at the beginning of your journey someone gave you a full glass. So we should completely ignore the fact that we can play any PS1 games on the VITA because they didn't input all the thousands of games they had before. Your logic is we should wait until they give us ALL the PS1 games before we accept any of them, right. Well good luck with that. I am sure people will play the PS1 games they have right now and wait for the rest. It's better then listening to everyone cry about not being able to play any PS1 games on the VITA. Not to mention you are talking crap seeing that a PSP and new PS3s can't play all PS1 games at all.Only the ones that are available to download

I agree with you that people like Xof are just a bunch of immature cry babies.

Take YouTube for example.

Wah there's no YouTube on the Vita and after Vita got youtube it became wah youtube on Vita has terrible search options.

With PSX classics first it's people crying that they don't have them and when they do get then they throw a huge tantrum because it isn't all of them.

But hey 100 titles is better than only 5.

By the way I never played Final Fantasy 7 which is one of the games in the list. Can't wait for the update.

crawling182  +   894d ago
I'm glad FF7 is on there. I don't have many PSOne classics (outside the PS+ ones) but FF7 is one. Would enjoy playing it on the go.
Relientk77  +   894d ago
Awesome news
Is this supposed to help Vita sales? I am not trolling, but curious as this doesnt seem like a major deal, unless the lack of games on Vita is desperately affecting the owners that they are really relying on games from over 10 years ago.

In contrast, I wouldnt expect a 3DS to sell more because Super Nintendo games are on it...so why would PS1 games have any major affect to Vita. Did people really buy this just to play PS1 games?...And are others holding out on buying one until the PS1 games are released for this?

But I guess its a good addition nontheless, I just dont see it being a major game changer for Vita. If anyone can give me further insight as to why this is a major deal, please explain it to me :)

GribbleGrunger  +   894d ago
No, we bought it for the solid library of Vita games already on it. the 250 PSP games and 100 PS1 games are just a bonus. I can't recall anyone saying it would shift Vitas? Where did you read that?

And why do people want what isn't there until it is and then want something else that isn't there instead? Odd.

It's very stupid to think that anyone would buy a Vita just for PS1 games, as all Playstation systems can play PS1 games, and even more stupid to think that the Vita is desperate, and relies on games released over a decade or so ago.

PS1 games on the Vita can be considered a "game changer", in the fact that it will have more available games for the Vita itself. For example, there might be PSP owners, who might want to play PS1 games on the go with the Vita's bigger OLED-screen, rather than on the PSP's smaller screen (might seem stupid, but then Nintendo did with the XL, and people bought it). Another thing can be that it can be used to market the Vita. The Vita has now been out for over 5 months, so it's natural that Sony wants to get out of the PSP, and start focusing on the Vita. If a kid sees a game he really wants to play, but it's only on the Vita, and doesn't want to pay $250 for a new console just for one game, then it's a lost Vita sale. However, it the kid also sees that it plays PS1 games, and a few of the PS1 games he sees are games he remembers playing and loving as when he was younger, he might invest on a Vita for nostalgia's sake and to buy that game he really wants. Then, after he's done playing those games, and awaiting for the next Vita game that interests him, he might go to the PS Store, and see another game he really wants, keeping that Vita for a longer time.
I don't think these reasons are major "game changers", but they are enough to sell a few Vitas, keep the current install base and even make it larger, and ultimately giving more games, from PS1 to PSP to Vita, and options for PS Vita owners. Heck, I'm pretty sure most Vita owners are happy finally getting PS1 support anyways, whether you admit it or not. I've been wanting to replay FFVII on my PSP again, but I wanted to play it again on my Vita instead, and now it's finally going to happen next week.
FragGen  +   894d ago
Agreed. I'm a PSP owner who upgraded to Vita in the middle of replaying metal gear solid. I put that on hold after upgrading and I'm looking forward to getting back to it on the new toy.

It's called providing a great feature for your existing customers. I'm confused at all the negativity here since I don't see how this is anything but good. If you don't care about older games feel free to continue not playing them. It's not like PS1 classics are going to stop new development on the box.

Again, this is long term value added thinking from Sony, not the whole " if we don't move a billion units in Q4, we're dead", western business thinking.

Damnit not this bullshit again. We were supposed to get full BC on psp games. We get 200 out of who knows how many thousand. We were supposed to get a umd program, no dice. They said all psx games would work and now its a hundred. They better make sure all the rpgs work at least.
Teflon02  +   893d ago
there are only around 200 PSOne titles on PSN, be happy damn.
KentBlake  +   894d ago
The way I see it, next week I'll have 100 more options of games to play on my Vita. How is that a bad thing? I bet these people who keep complaining won't even play a PSOne game on their Vitas.

Just like the people who say the Vita has no games. I'd like to see their trophy lists and find out how many games they've actually played before complaining.
Teflon02  +   893d ago
I don't get it, people say PS Vita has no games. Yet, I can name games I still want and loved on it.

Uncharted: Golden Abyss
WipEout 2048
Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational
Gravity Rush
Dynasty Warriors NEXT

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend
Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3
Rayman Origins

Plus PSP games

and soon to be releases. Can't wait
CloudyAero  +   894d ago

I have been a gamer since PS1 was relevant. I owned a PS1 AND Final Fantasy VII. But still, I have never played it.

On the 28th, this will finally change. I'm Excited.

Teflon02  +   893d ago
these people complaining can't be PS product owners because, PSN has under 200 I believe plus there are 2 or so games PSP can't play. I'm disappointed it won't be all right away but hopefully all crash games and all Final Fantasy's as well as threads of fate and wild arms 2 work, the others i don't own yet so i can't be the one to complain. But I just hope i can atleast transfer the rest through PS3 like my peace walker on psn
