Playstation Vita Version 1.8 Firmware Adds PS Classics Support


We still don't have a precise start date for PS Classics support on PlayStation Vita. But we do have something a bit more specific -- a firmware version number.

Nice.... bring it, sony.. ps2 would be nice too, eventually.

jamesensor2697d ago

PS2 games would be a revolution in this console! Imagine playing God Hand on this, omg...

LightofDarkness2697d ago

It'd be nice to be able to catch up on the plethora of PS2 RPGs I missed out on.

Aggesan2697d ago

Would be nice, but unfortunatly I don't think it's powerfull enough to emulate PS2 games.

Tidybrutes2697d ago

I disagree, there are ps2 emulators you can get off the internet (illegally yes, im not condoning it) that will run on much less powerful hardware than the vita.

Seraphemz2697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

It did pretty good with Metal Gear Solid 2... and pretty soon FF10 is coming out.

wnek92697d ago

@tidybrutes emulators are 100% legal they are just coded programs. downloading roms and iso's is illegal but playing your games on them isnt.

LightofDarkness2697d ago

TidyBrutes: I doubt that. PCSX2 has a pretty hard time coping with CPU intensive games like Dark Cloud 2 or SOTC on an i7 2600k overclocked. Something much less powerful than a Vita has no chance with a 3rd party emulator.

Aggesan2697d ago

@Tidybrutes My experiences with PS2 emulators are quite the opposite of what you're claiming. It takes a lot of power to run those things.

@Seraphemz MGS 2 is not emulated on the Vita, it runs natively. All PS2 games could run on Vita if they were made made for it Natively, but that's not going to happen.

think of it lke this
PS1 1.0
PSP 1.5
PS2 2.0
PS3 3.0

so yes psvita can manage

Final Fantasy 10 run perfectly on my PC at 1920x1080 resolution. I uploaded a video of it this morning infact. And it looks pretty nice too.

I won't be playing it though. I'm waiting for the Vita version =]

hkgamer2697d ago

with the amount of ram the vita has, i think it may just be able to handle it... also pentium 4's can handle most ps2 games so i believe that vita maybe able to emulate the games at the same fps as ps2

emulation doesn't work like that...

mxkite2697d ago

What do you even have a ps vita? it seems that that is not the case...

Every person that has hold in their hands a PS vita knows how powerful is the machine.

Aggesan2695d ago

@mxkite yes I have a Vity, and I love it, but that doesn't mean I think it can do anything.

Lets me ask you something, why do you think the early PS3's had additional hardware from the PS2 in them if they're powerfull enough to emulate the PS2 without those parts?
And since the Vita is weaker than the PS3, it would be even harder to emulate PS2 games on it.

God Hand on the Vita would make me cum.

jamesensor2696d ago

Regarding emulation talked about it here, it's not ilegal. You just have to own the game. And about hardware to emulate it, in the case of God Hand for example, emulation is slow. It requires a powerful processor with high clock speed. My laptop has 4gb ram core i5 and an ati 5650hd and still is not enough. Colosseum Road to Freedom works, but because its a less 3d demanding game (just an example).

The time is coming, it is getting closer.

HarryMasonHerpderp2697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

Damn got well excited then! been waiting for this for ages!

Biggest2697d ago

Ages. . . Four months. . . Perspective is for chumps!

HarryMasonHerpderp2697d ago

Hurrr durrr I'm glad you cleared that up for me you are a clever boy.

DivineAssault 2697d ago
