The Japanese gaming magazine says Sony's new portable won't provide access to your PSOne archives at launch. But is it only in Japan?
Yeah but, as much as I love my PSOne classics, I'm not buying PS Vita to play 10 year old games. I'm buying it to play PS Vita games. I can wait for this. It's not like there'll be a lack of games to play when it launches.
We've already been over this people. Why do the same things keep getting posted. This was released by Sony a long time ago. Psone games are compatible. 'Q: Is PS Vita compatible with other PlayStation platform games like PS3, PS2, or PSP? Do you have any plan to support other PlayStation platforms in the future? A: Users can play PSP titles, minis and PSone classics titles which are offered on PS Store. We do no have any plans to make PS Vita compatible with PS3 or PS2 titles at this point.' http://www.qj.net/ps-vita/n...
"Why do the same things keep getting posted." Fans of certain other hand held devices, or Sony haters in general need every shred of material, true or not, to try and punch holes in Vita's viability and worth.
@Misterhbk it's not a question on whether they'll be "compatible" but rather when they will be "released"... so not really the same thing.
There are also just overly excitable and neurotic fans, who immediately lose their minds when little things like this seem to go awry and begin preparing for the end times. Not everything's a conspiracy against Sony, guy. @disagree: Care to elaborate? Would you like to share your definitive proof of the international conspiracy against Sony and the Playstation 3 with the rest of the class? Or are you simply disagreeing because "u mad"?
PS3 titles will beable to stream to Vita which has been shown. PSN titles will work on both PS3 and Vita with cross platform features on some. Older PSN titles aren't determined to work or work the same yet, ie how sixaxis on vita could work with Flower. PS One, PSP, and Mini titles will transfer to Vita. PS2 Classics are unconfirmed but PS2 HD games as FFX HD and even Xbox/PC HD of Oddworld will work on Vita.
That's horrible! I love PSOne 'Donwloads!'
this is old news. Sony and devs will want to sell Vita games at launch. a few months later they'll probably include PS1 games. it makes sense
That's not true. Please read Misterhbk's post.
Probably bill us when they are finally supported too. I bought FF7 so many time I should own a fucking share of square enix by now.
Can't they just do it via software emulation? The vita has more than enough horse power to emulate PSone games plus with the new architecture it should be a snap. XperiaRay Edit: I just read Misterbhk comment. This article is just a hate article spreading BS.
Even if it's true, it says it won't have it at launch. That doesnt mean never, it'll have it eventually no matter what.
i really dnt care if it dnt play ps1 games it can play some pretty sweet lookin ps3 games while im anywhere and my ps3 aint even close to me :) sooo f*ck a ps1 game
Is it Famitsu not up-to-date about Vita or it's lost on translation? oh well, if it's true vita can't play PS1 games on launch than it's not a big deal sony can fix it with an update
According to the Vita FAQ released by Sony. It can play the PSOne classics. So I'm not sure what this report is all about, unless we are completely missing something here or this is entirely just speculation.
That's for Japan, and they say at launch, so eventually they'll support it. In the US, according to the official Vita FAQS posted in the official PlayStation site, they said that the Vita will be able to play PSone titles, but no plans yet for PS2 and even PS3 titles. So if someone imported a Japanese unit, he/she can still download PSone classics from the US PSN.
I doubt this. Hopefully. Reason why I'm buying Vita is to pretty much upgrade my PSP. I actively play PS One games in my regular PSP. And if this is true, Vita will be a no-buy for me for awhile.
why would you play ps'one titles at launch anyway, when u got uncharted, mod nation racers and fifa, and lbp !!!!
