Cnet: The PS Vita is a pretty phenomenal piece of hardware that's technically capable of being backwards-compatible with the entire PSP library.
Indeed, any ETA for the update?
Any news on remote play compatibility?
No. Meanwhile people with hacked ps3's can play whatever with remote play. Perfect example of why custom firmware is better. It may not work perfectly but it's not going to cut you off because it might stumble. It's idiotic to cut you off.
Those people also sacrifice controls and there is a decent amount of lag between button press and actions on screen. If they enabled it for all, it would just cause more complaints.
Meanwhile people with hacked PS3s can't get the updated firmware to be compatible with the Vita, thus making the entire thing that much more complicated.
Man... Was really hoping it would of had the feature out of the box. Would be awesome playing MGS HD remotely while im at work.
I really would like R Type Tactics to be supported. I know its not on the list, and I don't want to drop 14.99 to find out its not recognized through the content manager.
Doesn't look like it. If it doesn't show up in the store on your Vita, it won't work. Flying Hamster wouldn't show up in the content manager when connected to my ps3, but I was able to download it from the store on my Vita.
"If it doesn't show up in the store on your Vita, it won't work." This is total BS. That statement has already been disproved or did you not bother reading the article?
I would have thought that the entire catalogue of PSP games would work on Vita anyway as that would be a good and cheap way of making the system more attractive as then people would instantly have access to lot's of games at launch. And I think it's fair to say it wouldn't affect the sales of Vita games as people are obviously going to want the new stuff even if they like the old. Plus does anyone know if they are making it so that you can use the 2 analogue sticks to play the old PSP games? And do the PSone games work on it?
Yes you can map the analog stick. So far the PSP library on PSN is huge. I re-downloaded 3rd Birthday from PSN, mapped the sticks and it's a modern 3rd person shooter. If you own the game on the PSP game on the PS3 just re-download it from PSN to your Vita. You can customize your PSP settings with the Right analog stick. To do this you open a PSP game, press down on the touch screen for about 4 seconds, a menu will come up that allows a few configuration changes. This includes mapping buttons from clunky PSP games to a stick. @Darth below. No the support doesn't need to be in the game. How did they built support into a game before the Vita was even designed? If the game can use face buttons they can be mapped to the stick.
I wasnt meaning support "in" the game. I was meaning the game is supported for play on the vita. Like the official list of games you can play and remap controls because they have tested them and certified them to work. The "unsupported" ones are the ones not on the list but still work. I dont have the vita so I dont know how well those games work with remapped buttons. They arent on the official list for some reason or another. could be they couldnt get the controls to remap so they didnt make it on the list? you just misread what i typed.
darth dude you wrote it wrong. why would anyone even discuss stick support for a game that doesnt play on the vita in the first place. you just phrased it wrong.
its coming. As for the stick thing, I think there is a way to remap controls but the game needs to be supported for this to work. Not sure on unsupported but still playable games though. 2 more weeks and then i get mine. Oh and as for the whole library thing...yeah you would think but if there was support for the former versions of a game that has a vita version then people would not have much reason to buy the new vita version. Example: mod nation racers vita is a prettier version of the same game. Maybe a few new things added but not worth the $40 asking price when I got mine free from sony.
Thanks for both of the replies! That is really good you can remap the controls to stick.... it instantly makes potentially good PSP games, actually good! Vita has a real chance so let's hope Sony don't start making any silly decisions regarding it.... like getting too greedy for example!
I get the feeling it is coming really soon too. On the PS3 store, the PS One Classics section has the PS3, PSP, and Vita symbols already.
through remote play, all ps1 games work
What a load of bs. This shit doesn't work at all. I have tons psp games on my ps3 and the vita doesn't recognize any of them. This post is a bogus u can't play most of your psp game on the vita no matter what u do. Sony did this on purpose so people can focus on buying the vita and it's games. It backfired though.
Make sure everything is updated to the latest firmware. If the games still do not copy to the Vita, delete and redownload. Or throw your PS3 and Vita as hard as you can at a wall for a quicker fix.
I got lbp and kz liberation to work but im kind of salty all psp games dont work. I wanted portable ops, resistance, and the 2 syphon filters to play with 2 analog sticks but po for sure doesnt work and the rest are very iffy. Its good most do but i exped them all to as its basically the psp2. The psp psn prices are pretty insane also. Some older psp games are still 30 bucks. I hate dd for new games but they were sold out of uncharted and im imptient so i got that and ninja gaiden (both rock btw). Those 2 filled an 8 gb mem stick also, sucks but thats the biggest they had. Someone let me know if dark mirror or logans shadow is working because il buy the 2 bundles with them. I had both on psp but they would really benefit from the screen and analog stick. I wonder if sony removed some games to resell them on vita alone or in bundles?
I'm disappointed LBP and mod nation racers for psp that I got from the psn redemption thing won't transfer or download to my ps vita
i have BOTH LBP and Modnation working on my PS Vita. go to the PS Store (FROM THE VITA), then, go to the download history... you can download it from there. (european store btw) edit: below What about LBP?
Oh what the hell. I'm in the US and I'm looking at the Download History right now. It says "Cannot download using a PS Vita system" for ModNation. Looks like they have a lot of updating to do to their database.
I get "Cannot download using a PS Vita system" through the download history on the ps vita store as well. On both LBP and MNR. I live in the US. I guess Sony needs to update
you need to redownload both LBP and MNR on your PS3, not the Vita. like I've posted above, I got trouble transferring them at 1st too but then I redownloaded them both on my PS3 and after that no problem transferring them through content manager.
GTA LCS works too. you can't download it from the PS Vita but it transfer correctly from the PS3
All oldpsp titles need are TROPHIES!
Is there a way to transfer from PC > vita these games. I have quite a few from my media go directroy?
I think you can use that
Some of the games worked, but not all of them. I managed to get castlevania, peace walker, gta on it.
Has anyone tried Jean D Arc yet?
