one more reason to own one. Period!
Abash  +   1263d ago
Gravity Rush is the only reason you need, it's just that fantastic
AznGaara  +   1263d ago
Gravity Rush is the reason I bought one. Bought it, beat it and then my memory card got corrupted so now I must beat it again :)
jeseth  +   1263d ago
Cool to get the PSone support ... wanted to buy a Vita leading up to launch, just haven't jumped yet.

I really want one but I feel like the Vita is stagnant right now ...
ABizzel1  +   1263d ago
I really enjoyed the demo of Gravity Rush, and the game is great so far
FriedGoat  +   1263d ago
@jeseth that would be because that's what the media wants you to think.
DarkHeroZX  +   1263d ago
that feature and the ability to be a ps3 controller. THere's just so much to look forward to this tuesday with the vita. I also think GOW HD collection becomes vita compatible too.

I just found out papa and yo is ps vita compatable, gonna turn mine on now to see if I get it for free on the vita as I bought the ps3 version the other day.

You don't get it free. Only cross buy game as of now is sounds and shapes.
belac09  +   1263d ago
sound shapes.
IRetrouk  +   1263d ago
It says it's vita compatable on the ps3, I'm gonna try transferring it by hooking the vita up to the ps3 n see what happens
doogiebear  +   1263d ago
Now we just need ps2 (emulated like on ps3) and psn games support and were good

I need a bigger memory card.
blitz0623  +   1263d ago
I got a 32GB for $70. Really good price if you ask me. Probly won't need another one ever.

You can also just use your PC as a form of storage which is what I used to do when I only had a 4GB. I would store some downloaded games on my PC whenever I got new ones to play. Then I just put them back in the memory card to replace other ones again. Yeah it's a hassle, but it's not like you play 5 games all the time right?
doogiebear  +   1263d ago
Serious question from potential Vita buyer:
Can the games also be stored on ps3, or is pc more convenient?
just_looken  +   1263d ago
storing on ps3 is way easier you can buy/download and transfer to your vita just like a psp and store said game if you want to like psp games. when you transfer a game the vita it may auto delete but just re-download it on your ps3 and dont transfer.
Jurat  +   1263d ago
Would love to see a HD remake of Colony Wars for Vita.
Hufandpuf  +   1263d ago
:nostalgia engaged:
Jurat  +   1263d ago
Doesn't look like we'll be seeing it anytime soon though, as SCE Studio Liverpool (formerly Psygnosis) closed down last week.

End of an era - those guys made some amazing titles...
doogiebear  +   1263d ago
Or at least a ps one classics release at the very least
Bowzabub  +   1263d ago
Anybody have a clue when the remote play for 1st party games (GoW, Ico collections) will be playable remotely? Is that also part of this firmware?
wanieldiik  +   1263d ago
finally I get to play final fantasy 9 on my psvita!!! wait... will every ps one classic be compatible?

Not from the start, no.
abzdine  +   1263d ago
who not ?
josephps3  +   1263d ago
I've never even owned and played any PSOne games. Man was that 15 years ago? I was still playing with my Playschool Lego blocks when PSone was released.

Games get updated graphics and sound the gameplay is still gameplay and that never gets outdated.

So what are the top 10 PSone games? Any recommendations?

LordMe  +   1263d ago
PS1 had some awesome games, but with so many of them you will get a ton of mixed lists. I'm not gonna say they are the best, but these are some great ones.

FFVII, VIII, IX, and Tactics, and if the ever add it, Bushido Blade 2. Squaresoft was a beast of a company back then. Most of what they made was great, while I never got to play it much, Xenogears was highly revered.

Metal Gear Solid is always great.

Resident Evil 2, Legend of the Dragoon, and Megaman Legends are also great.

While not the greatest around (And I doubt they will be on the PSN ever) Evil Zone was a blast to play.

Again, there is allot of games, And I am sure I am missing allot of them. This was just a quick post off the top of my head.
DarkHeroZX  +   1263d ago
Chrono trigger belongs on that list too.
LordMe  +   1263d ago
That it does. >.< As I said, I am sure I am missing a good bit, thanks for the addition!
GhostHero333  +   1263d ago
Evil zone and legend of dragoon were the greatest those two games on the vita would be amazing!
asmith2306  +   1263d ago
How did you get three downvotes for asking for recommendations? Anyways, Resident Evil 1, 2 & 3 will be the first PSOne classics I will be loading up. Played through them all back to back on the PS3 recently and they are still as good as they were back then. Also, download RE Code Veronica X from the PSN if you plan on playing them all back to back :) Can't wait to blast through them all again on my Vita! MGS, as always, FFVII too.
Anon1974  +   1263d ago
Castlevania Symphony of the Night. I think that's the only PSone game I'll replay on the Vita. This game really was the best Castlevania game in my opinion and just a shining example of all the 2d sidescrolling genre had to offer.
I might even consider loading up Medieval. I haven't looked at FFVII in years as I don't know how well it'll hold up, but this would certainly be worth a look if you have any love of JRPG's. It was the reason I finally bought a PSone back in the day.
blumatt  +   1262d ago
FF7 was my absolute favorite PS1 game back in the day. Logged over 100 hours into it. Such an amazing story. And characters. The love story between squall and rinoa was awesome.
blumatt  +   1262d ago
Oops I meant to say FF 8.
boybato  +   1263d ago
depends on what you want. most of the games might turn you off considering how the tech had advanced since the ps1 days.
castlevania:sotn is a definitely a must buy. great game, great soundtrack. i would also imagine that its 2d graphics would just shine on the version vita.

MelonSaurus  +   1263d ago
Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, and Abe's Exoddus. Also Spyro, Crash Bandicoot, and Metal Gear Solid of course.
ddurand1  +   1263d ago
oddworld collection coming out in 2012, i think?
MelonSaurus  +   1262d ago
No, they're doing a reboot of the first game. It's not a collection.
trent44  +   1263d ago

belac09  +   1263d ago
Final fantasy 7 is a MUST have, 8 and 9 next. of course metal gear solid, grandia, resident evil 1-3. parasite eve 1 and 2. there are plenty more as well.
DigitalAnalog  +   1263d ago
You can always start off with the Crash Trilogy. Then go ahead with games like FF, Parappa the Rapper the original MGS. Eventually you'll find out how charming the console was back then.
dboyman  +   1263d ago
We should have had this feature DAY ONE!!!

I agree, It should have been there since day one.
GribbleGrunger  +   1263d ago
Why do I get the impression that you just answered yourself there?
Bimkoblerutso  +   1263d ago
^^There was no question asked there, chief...
DivineAssault  +   1263d ago
Vita rocks.. Best handheld ever made hands down..

Wait, peace walker HD is coming to vita or psn? i know they omitted it in the vita collection for some stupid reason

JellyJelly  +   1263d ago
This will sell them some of their overpriced memory cards.
DivineAssault  +   1263d ago
cross buy will too.. PS1 dont take up much memory but full vita games will.. Looks like ima have to cash in on my reward points from Gamestop & Best Buy to get a couple 32gigers
Hicken  +   1263d ago
Does it bother you? You don't have a PS3 or a Vita, and you're not interested in either. Just as with all things, the price will come down.

But since you have no intention of buying one, what does it matter to you?

Maybe you should create your own handheld, have it hacked to death, and then decide on a different approach next time. Or you could make the same mistake again and then be upset when support for the system quickly dries up.

Or you could stop trolling.
2pacalypsenow  +   1263d ago
anybody know what the 100 ps1 calssics will be?
Bimkoblerutso  +   1263d ago
Yeah, I wanna know too. Hopefully we'll get the Final Fantasies. I would love to play those on the OLED.
Soldierone  +   1263d ago
Waiting for MGS to go on sale.....its been on sale everywhere but NA for 5 dollars, what gives?
boybato  +   1263d ago
same here... eu has it on sale due to the 25th anniversary celebration. hoping us psn gets the same treatment.

Rusco87  +   1263d ago
3 days ago on the EU store it was £3.99 now it has shot back up to £7.99. I think sony are aware of what games people want for their Vita.
Soldierone  +   1262d ago
Yeah because they keep jacking the prices up, its annoying. Here we are saying the device is awesome, suffering through all the doom and gloom articles, not caring that not many games released as of late.....and they reward us early buyers with jacked up prices.....

I love Sony, but come on. I'm not buying the game for 10 dollars, I own every variation of it and still have the original disc, ill just wait to get it digital though.
JoeSchmoh  +   1263d ago
In the PSone games that would be cool if you can program the buttons to work with the touch screen or touch pad on the back. I cant wait until a PS2 firmware is released. Then everybody will be thinking about buying a Vita.
KentBlake  +   1263d ago
I don't think this will ever happen, although I'd love to see it. The PS2 thing, that is.
#12.1 (Edited 1263d ago ) | Agree(0) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
DivineAssault  +   1263d ago
I dont see why they couldnt.. Maybe around the time PS4 gets released & they update the psn ecosystem, it will be available.. Gaikai will make many possibilities with psv/ps4 combo
PhoenixRising37  +   1263d ago
idk about you guys, but i want the PSone comic spiderman games on the store. I haven't played those in forever!
josephayal  +   1263d ago
GOOD NEWS!! I haven't played on my PS Vita in around 1 month, I hope they add lots more things like PS2 Clsssics and GEARS OF WARS HD COLLECTION
2pacalypsenow  +   1263d ago
you bought a vita to play Ps2 and ps1 games? also i think you mean GOD OF WAR not gears of war
3-4-5  +   1263d ago
Load times are on thing that has kept me away from Playstation.

Are the old systems load times carried over into the games you download ?
r21  +   1263d ago
I dont know about that but the load times for ps vita games are really short. Gravity Rush takes a few seconds to load up :D
Fyflin  +   1263d ago
The only game I've come across so far that has long load times is Wipeout 2048.

Saying that, if you download the PS3 tracks (HD and Fury) they actually load up a lot faster.
3-4-5  +   1262d ago
k thanks for the info. both of you.
Killman  +   1263d ago
PS1 Classics = Awesome
Also, anyone else notice: "-support for buttons to navigate the Vita's UI"

Thank you Sony!
tiffac008  +   1263d ago
Yeah, they actually listened to some of their critics and added that feature ^^
Smokingunz  +   1263d ago
It's about time! I've been waiting for this! Here are my favorite ps1 games I always play and you guys too:

1.castlevania sotn
2.resident evil 1,2,3

I do need to buy street fighter alpha 2
iNcRiMiNaTi  +   1263d ago
Those were the exact games I had in mind along with MGS1 and Tomba
r21  +   1263d ago
Nice to see that with this new update, I can finally use these buttons for the UI. Thats 2 of my list:

The other one is the playlist complaint
TENTONGUN  +   1263d ago
i bought ff7 a week before the vita was released so i could play it on the vita. this is great news man. also bought legacy of kain blood omen. loved that one back in the day too. RE as well. time to load up
Vitalogy  +   1263d ago
Although isn't a bad thing, PS Vita don't need psone classics but brand new IPs designed for it. If I want to play psone games, I'll plug mine to the tv and play, I didn't bought psvita to play games from 1995-2000.
