TVGB: With the release of PS2 Classics onto the PlayStation Store recently there has speculation that Sony could end up making these downloads compatible with the PS Vita, just like PlayStation minis and (eventually) PSOne Classics.
I kind of figured. I think the tech demo they showed at E3 with all the PS3 games was just to show how easy it was to make ports, meaning that developers can make games for PS3 and easily port it over to Vita. This article meaning like already existing PS3 titles. and now we await the PSvita is doomed article because of no PS2/PS3 game support
But it is doomed. DOOOOMED because....eh...uh....I'll think of something eventually. I'm not sure that it matters too much that these won't make it over as if the games that come out for the Vita are as strong as the ones in the launch line up then there will be enough to keep Vita owners occupied without pining to play PS2/3 games on it.
We'll see PS2 games on the Vita in the form of Final Fantasy X HD and in Collections like Metal Gear Solid HD. And for PS3 games, there's Remote Play and multiplatform games.
I really don't see why Sony wouldn't want to bring old PS2 and PS3 games to the PS Vita. The way I see it, the more games made available for Vita users, the more money Sony will make. Its a stupid decision in my opinion. If developer support ever does drop off for whatever reason, you can be sure that Sony will change their tune.
The good thing is that Sony has confirmed that if you buy a game that has the Cross Play feature you can download it for free on the PS3 or Vita (whichever one you don't have) if you buy it on the other one. That's amazing news for us. http://dlb-network.com/2012... - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Either way, I hope they change their minds about bringing PS2 Classics to the Vita. I for one would love to play a lot of PS2 games on the Vita.
The way I see it, this seems like a missed opportunity. The point of a handheld, to me, is the convenience of it. You can bring a library of games with you on the go. It would be nice to have the option to mix it up from time to time as none of the Vita launch titles necessarily have to depth of some of the PS2 classics. In time I'm sure it will, but not at this moment, and it would be nice to have something to hold me over.
The PS2 games are a huge missed opportunity. I understand it'll be hard to do thanks to game size and Vita Memory being so small, but it's something that should be here come E3. It's just more of a reason to buy a Vita. You may not sell as many Vita games, but you'll still be selling games (PS2) if you have PS2 games playable on Vita. That was the whole purpose of PlayStation Suites to be able to play PlayStation 1, 2, PSP, Minis on a PlayStation Certified device, and the Vita is by all means capable of running the emulation.
I applaud your ability to come up with funny usernames for your many accounts. Joined 2 days ago or rejoined 2 days ago?
kaveti6616 Rejoined 2/3 days ago. I rage quit just over a month ago. I can't say I'm a fan of my current username though as I keep forgetting it when I'm typing it out and it takes too long to type as well. Should've given it more thought.
I mean it would have been cool to play at least some ps2 classics. I think sooner or later they will bring some out.
The emulated PS2 Classics will come eventually. For now titles like God of War, MGS Collection and soon Final Fantasy HD will all be Vita compatible. Id like to think people are buying the Vita to play Vita games, but of course it's a failure to this generations' idiotic media if it doesn't play games from 1995.
I never owned a PSOne so I've been catching up on the classics on my PSP. Handheld is the perfect way to play past games because when I'm home I want to play current games. This news bums me out cause I was waiting to buy God Hand and all the other classics on Vita :(
For $300 I'd expect to get the best from my device day 1, but I guess only some gamers think like that. If the vita can play PS2/PS3 games, I'd expect it to do just that day 1. The reason I'm not a fan of early adapting. Once they "do have plans" to get the best out of the vita, I'll purchase one.
Very well, my liege. But not everyone would describe "the best" as developers spending time on preparing old games when a brand new device could use new ones.
@SilentNegotiator Thats beside the point, people want the device to come out with as much features as POSSIBLE. You cant tell me it wouldn't be attractive if you could play ANY PS3 game remotely, not just a hand full( http://playstationlifestyle... or to play that old classic PS2 game on the go. To me the PSV is just losing more appeal by the second seeing it doesn't do all the thing I'd hope it would when it was first revealed. I mean seriously the hand held has the technology... USE it!
What a missed opportunity...
What missed opportunity? I know Atlus is bringing persona 4 to the vita and that Square is bringing ffx which are ps2 titles so... Of course sony wouldnt allow ps2 bc on vita, after all those hd remixes we bought? i mean cmon
if i wanna play ps2 games ill play my ps2, if wanna play ps3 games ill play my ps3. i play the vita to play vita games not the latter.
Hey, This isn't just about you. A good day to you.
i didnt say it was all about me, buy yet all of you are making about you. id rather have new games than games ive already played. if you wanna play ps2 games buy a ps2 simple.
Yeah man, I can totally bring my PS2 with me on my way to work. /s
not my problem
Neither is it our problem that you are fine without it. The point here is that some do want these options. When the Vita does have any of these features; how will it affect you? __________ "if you wanna play ps2 games buy a ps2 simple." __________ You speak as if it will ruin your gaming experience. As if it shouldn't be there. Do not pretend you have some privilege over this. You're acting like a complete bigot. In fact your comment is redundant. I shouldn't have bothered.
Thats a smart move. Why do that when you can focus on new games or enhanced ports and remakes?
Some of us like to mix it up. Currently I just started Farcry 2 because it was free on PS+ after burning myself out on DA:Origins, all while knocking away on Chrono Cross on my PSP. Don't mean to be a douche, and you're not saying this to this degree, but this argument of classics not having a place in today's gamer's lives is unfounded. I don't game on 3DS, but I sure hope its fans have access to SNES games. Cheers.
the only douche I see is you especially when you put words in my mouth
He's correct. No where in his post did you (SandwichHammock or anyone else) see anything about "this argument of classics not having a place in today's gamer's lives is unfounded. I don't game on 3DS, but I sure hope its fans have access to SNES games". You said "and you're not saying this to this degree", but he didn't say anything remotely similar. You put words in his mouth. Mixing up the games is fine. Like you, I play PS1/2/3 games on a regular basis. That doesn't mean that there is something wrong with the Vita for not focusing on PS2/3 games. I didn't hear complaints about the 3DS's lack of SNES classics. It's not a big deal. There are many ways to play the games you want to play. Every single facet of Sony gaming doesn't have to be the same. You can play PS1/2/3 on the PS3. You can play PS1/2 on the PS2. You can play PS1/2 on the PSP. Enjoy!
GBA games on the 3ds need to happen as well
I'm being very vocal about the PSOne classics (I know its coming) being patched ASAP and am very surprised this feature appears not to be ready for launch. As for the PS2 games, I really would like to see it, but from a technical standpoint when it comes to emulating the PS2 hardware...maybe that is the problem. PS3 games: there is remote play, and Sony should really get their shit together on this, as its an outstanding feature, and as seen with the CFW videos, possible without developers needing to "put" it into their games. Wallet it ready come next week.
the only reason that i might not get vita right away is because theres no ps1 compatibility, i want to play my other games also, and am seriously considering putting the vita off for a while and picking up a psp while i wait. i have lots of ps1 classics, but since i dont have a psp anymore i havnt played them. i want to get uncharted for vita, but the rest of the games i can wait for so really, all i would want it for is uncharted and ps1/psp games, but if theyre not going to give me those, why should i get one? definitely hope ps1 classics get compatibility soon
Why waste money on getting a PSP? lol Just get a Vita, and wait for the PS1 Classics compatibility patch. I'm sure it's not far off.
Blumatt, I can buy another PS3 and a game or two with the cost of the Vita. A PSP can be had for a tiny amount compared to the Vita.
Yeah I could see retro not being supported for the Vita, it was inevitable if you think about it, the way they've shifted from backwards compatibility to remakes. Sony wants to focus on the new rather than the old with the Vita.
Good, then I hope they enable remote play on those titles instead.
I wouldn't be surprised if we see it in some form sooner or later. I was however hoping that the HD remakes would be compatible with vita. I'd love to be able to play shadows of the colossus or jak and daxter while I'm on a train or something.
Of course it will happens , i think they just wanna establish that the vita wont just be a ps2-ps3 portable . It's that kind of idea that harmed the psp at first
They should bring HD classics to the Vita. Sly Cooper, Jak and Daxter, Silent Hill etc I know we are getting the MGS HD collection and that's a system seller for me but I still think it needs more.
I was hoping for PS2 classics, which would be identical to the 'HD classics' on PS3 since the only thing 'HD classics' add is increased resolution and 3D support (all game and art content is identical). I would happily pay $10-15 for downloadable PS2 games since I never had a PS2 (I had an Xbox) and there were so many excellent games I missed out on. Shame. :(
just buy a ps2. gamestop still carries them cheaply and the games are dirt cheap
But they have no problem selling PS2 HD remakes on the PS3. Weird.
Lesson learned from this gen is keep your old system/games. Anyway, I can see a combo of the PS2 classics and future HD remakes for Vita. DMC HD collection will be perfect for Vita.
Shouldn't that be a lesson from past generations? This is only the second generation where backwards compatibility has even been an issue. Don't get me wrong: my PS1 died (still have it) so both my PS2 and PS3 being able to play PS1 games is great. But I also have no intention of getting rid of my old tech just because new tech exists. I still have a VCR and cassette player; I don't expect their replacement devices to also play their format.
does this answer your Question. flow is a PS3 game http://www.esrb.org/ratings... Playstation Suite can bring PS3 an i would imagine PS2 games over to the PSVita,
I saw a youtube video of someone playing PSOne classics I think he downloaded them from his PS3 to vita.
he couldve been using remote play, you can play your ps1 title via remote play
I cant really remember all I know is he had a classic library in his PS VITA and he started playing it.
Hopefully they add the feature when the PS Vita have enough games to support itself.
well i dnt mind if they bring ps2 games 2 vita but i deff dnt want my ps3 games on vita just remote play every title and im sure we will be just fine.
I'm still really hoping that Sony decide to add PS2 Classics support. I think PS3 games are a bit too unlikely, though. My reason for remaining optimistic about PS2 game support is because the Vita was originally not going to support PS One games, but Sony have decided to support it now after the reaction. Perhaps if there is enough support Sony will consider it.
Sony Rep: We have no plans to bring ps3/ps2 games to vita Sony Associate: Maybe we should plan that, it's a good business model Sony Rep: Good idea, as of 1 minute after our press release, we're now secretly planning to bring ps3/ps2 games to Vita. Entire Dialogue AKA - Press releases don't mean shit for the future.
Oh but that's the least of my concerns. My concern is that they will port all of the Vita's top titles to the PS3, nullifying my Vita purchase. The same thing happened of the PSP. How many of the PSP's (few) good games remained exclusives? Not a lot. GTA LCS, VCS = ported to PS2 Syphon Flter DM, LS = ported to PS2 Wipeout Pure, Pulse = ported to PS2, PS3 God of War CoO, GoS = ported to PS3 Peace Walker = ported to PS3 The list goes on... And they have even created a line of PSP Remasters, so expect more to come. Outside of Valkyria Chronicles II and Dissidia (which is probably gonna end up a PSP Remaster), virtually no high quality PSP game remained exclusive. I wish Sony would come forward and say: "All first party Vita exclusives will remain Vita exclusives for ever." That would go a long way in convincing me to buy a Vita. Cause I still have the sour taste of worthless PSP puchases in my mouth. I'm interested in Gravity Rush, it's a unique IP, I'd buy a Vita for games like that. But if in fall 2012, they announce a PS3 port for the PSN, I'll be pretty bitter about it.
they port games because people stopped buying them so they didn't lose anything , they don't port it in the same day it released , that's a good thing for them , same happening to ps2 games , people don't buy them now so they port them , people start buying them again even if they have the game .. they port only when people stop buying , that will happen to the ps3 to vita , that's a bad move because they showed that it's possible but they are not using it , they hyped people for nothing , i for one would buy vita right now if they made vita play ps3 games ...
Maybe a stupid question, but can't PS2 games be played threw remote play if you bought them on the store for PS3?
There is a possiblity, but numberous reports claim only a selected games can be played so far through remote play which BS. Now we probably have to wait months in advanced to see a feature like this implemented
the vita has a bunch of launch window games a nice list of PSP compatible PS one is coming i know we want the vita to do everything a and now, but at least allow it time to launch and show off its true nature, PS employees have their hands full as it is
people still buy psp games even though they have ps3 so it won't hirt , if it can do it then it's useless to make vita powerfull , why not making vita like the ps2 and make it cheaper if they won't use it's power
I never really thought of this before for some reason. But now that I know we won't have it...I'm just imagining the wonderful time I could have playing Kingdom Hearts on the Vita x.x
Uhh...Ninja Gaiden Sigma anyone?
Shame, I would love to play San Andreas on the Vita.
no limits to the vita. im a very happy and excited customer. cannot wait! for those apps to come. loving uncharted already. it does feel like im playing ps3 on a small screen on the go. yup!
Like there was no plan to bring the ps2 backward compatibility for all ps3? hahaha what a joke sony! No one believes you anymore except blind donkey dumb fanboys.
Darn Sony. I hate you for not allowing us to play games totally for free from other systems that we most likely already own on your totally new handheld that has it's own games What kind of business are you running here? :/
C'mon, there will eventually be PS2 games on PSV, no doubt. PS3 is more of the question mark.
if vita can't play ps2 games then no buy.. i was going to get one solely for that purpose.
I was going to get one solely for Remote play, but ATM it just streams PS1, minis, and 3 or 4 PS3 games. So whats the point?
They will eventually; psp didn't originally have ps1 games did it? no; let them fix the psp emulation and ps1 emulation 1st then they'll work on this and improve remote play- can't help but think that in the days before firmware updates consoles had to release with all this stuff finished....
Yeah I agree, but I don't want to risk buying one yet in case if it doesn't ever happen. The PSP is amazing that it can play PS1 games but that was because the PS1 was a very simple coded console. The PS2 how ever is very complex even PCs can not emulate it properly. I hope the Sony devs work around this and make it happen. I am going to wait until maybe 5 or 6 months because that's when all of the firmware fixes and hopefully the latest vita software releases.
I think when they've sorted the other emulation stuff they'll do it; it's more than capable of running them... in time we will see them on there it would be a big selling point I mean adding a massive libary of ps2 games to the vita's game libary would be a big thing; I give it a year and I expect an announcement about it...
does this mean we can't play ps3 games in remote mode ?.. i saw few videos doing it ... if not then it's useless for me , that was the biggest hype for me
not yet they say we will be able to remote plat most soon:the ps3 will process then stream it to the ps vita they claim this si coming.....
