Play your PS1 games on your PS Vita
If only vita wasn't so expensive where I live...
How much is it?
549 US$. Surprise, disagreeers? :P
idk why people disagree with you, in countries like mexico the 3G PSVita cost around $500 USD.
lol , i bought the vita but i don't have money to buy games for it >.< even if i got money i won't buy games for it because next month/november these games will release resident evil 6 dishonored medal of honor ( i like how it looks but i think i won't buy it because it always makes me feel bad when i play the campaign ) need for speed assassin creed 3 call of duty black ops 2 hitman >.<
expect another Wipeout game!!!!! the wipeout 2048 official Facebook page just posted this: "WE. ARE. ALIVE." YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would love a Vita, but my wallet is a little light to pick one up right now.
It bothers me that PS1 is considered "retro". Makes me feel old... the thing is 18 years old and that just doesn't seem right...
I agree with what you are saying. I was playing Soul Reaver (not officially supported but works great on the Vita with super control) this afternoon laying on the couch and nothing felt retro to me.
what do oyu mean of 'not officially' :)
@IDeath480 - Unofficially recognised :D
That was my first console (I'm 16) and i still don't consider it retro. NES and SNES is retro.
NES was mine... I still have trouble accepting SNES as retro sometimes. When I think of retro I think Atari, mostly. Damn my age.
@ PirateThom Well, it's a hell of a bitter pill to swallow, but it is what it is. I listen to the classic rock station while I'm at work, and they play Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam... It breaks my heart, but I'm back in college getting another degree, and I'm technically old enough to be the parent of a freshmen. I don't consider PS1 retro, but I can see why some of the youngsters do.
Heck I feel old with the retro statement, and i just turned 17 2 weeks ago
The older you get the shorter your life will seem to be.
I think the bundles would be a good offer. -Free game (LBP, or COD, or AssCreed: Liberation, or, PSABR, etc) -Free Memory Card (I forget the size but it's a few GB) ... If you get the AssCreed: Liberation, that alone I think is worth the $250 and it still comes with the game. I just checked on the Sony store and it DOES NOT comes with a memory card (which seems like a jip). But, I suspect the memory cards might have a price cut sometime soon during the holidays (fingers crossed).
Sony just needs to be smarter and not overcharge for something that can be purchased a lot cheaper.
I agree. Srsly, there are a few things I am questioning why SCE and Sony are not being so open about their motivation. But, as I look across the industry, I realize that there are a lot of administrative bullcrap each company has (not saying any of it is right, just that I see it). I would be okay with any behind the scenes stuff (esp now leading up to a new console gen) as long as SCE hire great people and have a consistent, company wide outlook of doing what they do to entertain peoples imaginations. That being said, I look forward to what the future holds for Playstation and Sony. Financially, it can only get better for the company. I worry about their marketing of goods/services to consumers (I think anyone can tell that their marketing ppl do not talk to their engineers, devs, and people making this cool stuff).
The content for vita is ever so slowly trickling out, guess I'll have to suffice playing the classics!
If youre waiting on good vita games, pick up LPB Vita. Best vita game so far.
Already got lbp 2 on ps plus for free :)
LBP Vita is essentially LBP 3. Thats how good it is. All Vita owners should pick this game up.
Sorry, I can't justify $250 plus memory card to play Playstation games. It's a nice feature but not what the system is for it's about playing Vita games. Maybe a price drop I'll get one.
yet you're a mac user? How did you justify that?
haha good 1.
If Sony cannot afford to drop the system, least drop the memory card prices!!!
did you know that the PSVita was speculated to cost more than $400+ because of the amazing specs it has? if what Jihaad_cpt says is true, damn dude thats pretty sad, seeing how apple is ripping you off hard.
All you need is one memory / one account in vita to play everything you want ... you can download anything like demos and full games and copy themin pc as a back up , if you finished them you can delete them yes i agree with you on the price , there must be at least 2 drop price xD
LBP, Graviy Rush, Dynasty Warriors, Blaz Blue, Uncharted are my vita titles so far & will grow by about 6-8 more titles this yr.. PSP,PS1, apps, & demos have my 16GB card full already.. Only thing i hate about vita is the memory being so damn pricey.. hope theres a black friday sale for a 32GB card, i need one b4 yrs end... when i look at it & use its features i wonder "how the hell is this thing being ignored?" I feel its the best handheld ever made, especially with all the good games coming for it.. sexy lil beast is putting it lightly..
while im glad that ps1 games can finally be played on vita, I will always have a negative feeling toward sony for not allowing this at system launch. Its rediculous that anything playable digital game that can be played on psp cannont be played on vita.
I'd love to play some PSOne Classics on my Vita. I just don't have much free time after work and I've got tons of stuff left to do in the PS Vita games I own. I just started LittleBigPlanet PS Vita today, it's incredible. I'm absolutely loving my Vita. Greatest handheld of all time. Looking forward to Ragnarok Odyssey, Dokuro, Persona 4 Golden, AC III: Liberation, PSASBR, Sly Cooper: TIT, Guacamelee, Retro City Rampage, Jet Set Radio, Killzone: Mercenary, Tearaway and more.
I ve gotta say, going through all my favourites ps1 games again, reminds me why i love playstation in the first place. La Vita bella .
OH WOW, PS1 IS SOOO RETRO!!!! THE 90'S!!! What the hell would Atari/ColecoVision be then? Vintage? You've got to be close to 12 to consider this to be accurate.
I feel the same way when I listen to the radio and hear what the consider "Classic Rock". It makes me feel old as hell. I am almost 31 so I guess I am getting pretty old. LOL
"Retro Gaming on the PS Vita" because what else are you gonna do with your $300 paperweight....lol...jk.....bu t i am annoyed, i bought a vita finally after wanting one since launch, i think im going to return it. not a single game i love that justifies the price, thank goodness i got it from target, they're really cool about returns
You bought it when you didn't like anything it offers ? well that's on you buddy,it's just a no-brainer ..!
thats why im returning it, no loss to me, i rented a few games in the hopes i wouyld love it, nahhh....maybe in a few years, love my psp, got like 30 games that i love for that thing
PS1 is not old. Newbies wrote this?? Anyway I got to admit the ps1 titles look a hell of a lot better on Vita then my full hd 3d tv.
I agree to that,I bought Alundra,harvest moon,Vanguard bandits,syphon filter,grandia,Tomba,Final Fantasy 7,klonoa & wild arms,they all look superb and smooth on the OLED small screen :D ! <3
Im playing FF IX, couldn't finish it when I was a kid, NOW I OWN DAT!!! ;D great great great games
