Ok so I just got this thing, and I have a shit load of PSone games on my PS3. I don't seem to be able to transfer them. Is it possible/not allowed, if possible what are the procedures? Copying them to the PSP was easy peezy, but I don't know wtf Sony's doing with this shit.
Vita can't play PSone games yet, Some games will come this summer. One of the fuck ups.
http://www.joystiq.com/2012/06/04/ps...oming-to-vita/Wild Arms, Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy 7, Twisted Metal 2, Arc the Lad, Cool Boarders 2 and Jet Moto will all be coming to PlayStation Vita as PSOne Classics starting sometime this summer.
http://uk.ign.com/articles/2012/06/0...assics-on-vitaThe PlayStation Network is crowded with games to download and play, but for many old-school gamers, the PSone Classics library, hundreds of titles strong, is where the action’s at. But ever since the PlayStation Vita was launched, complaints about how Sony’s new handheld couldn’t play PSone Classics remained consistently loud. Thankfully, those complaints can soon subside, because a firmware update for Vita, launching soon, will rectify the situation.
At E3, Sony showed-off a new firmware-equipped PlayStation Vita with seven playable PSone Classics: Final Fantasy VII, Cool Boarders 2, Wild Arms, Arc the Lad, Tomb Raider, Jet Moto and Twisted Metal 2. I spent a brief amount of time with Final Fantasy VII, and what I found is pretty much what you’d expect. Final Fantasy VII looked and played just like the real thing, and that’s all you really want, right?
Interestingly, the firmware on the Vita I was using seemed to be incomplete. The Sony representative I was with told me that all manner of extras were being added to make the future firmware update as complete as possible. For instance, PSone Classics were only controllable with the directional pad on the Vita I was using, but left analog stick support was promised. PSone Classics that take advantage of L2 and R2 buttons will allow the use of Vita’s back touch pad on the left and right side, respectively, in order to replicate those buttons’ functionality. And strangely, some sort of widescreen support was promised. When I inquired whether that meant that the picture would be improperly stretched or if the support would still somehow retain PSone games’ native aspect ratio (which is 4:3), I never received a satisfactory answer.
The best news of all, however, is that if you already own a PSone Classic, whether on PS3 or PSP or both, you won’t have to purchase the game again. All you’ll have to do is connect your Vita to your PS3 or directly to the PlayStation Network and transfer the game(s) desired from your purchased items list. And if you don’t own a PSone Classic and want to play it on Vita, there will be no restrictions. Every game currently available in the PSone Classics catalog will be available for play on Vita with no exceptions.
You'll be looking for firmware 1.8
http://andriasang.com/con1rn/ps_vita_classics/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.
Sony said today that PS Classics support will be added to Vita via the system's version 1.8 firmware update. As previously announced, this firmware update will be available some time during the Summer.
The version 1.8 firmware update was mentioned during Sony's announcement of the PlayStation 2 Game Archives service for PlayStation 3.

http://www.xtremepsvita.com/2012/08/...n-august-28th/Over 100 PSOne Classics will be Compatible with PS Vita on August 28th
In a Press Release, Sony has confirmed that over a 100 PSOne Classics will be compatible on the PS Vita when Firmware v1.80 launches at the end of August. Jim Ryan revealed that from August 28th, over 100 PS One classics including Final Fantasy VII, Metal Gear Solid, and Resident Evil 2 will be available to download for PS Vita.
Previously, it was thought that only a handful of titles would be compatible with the PS Vita with further titles rolling out in stages.
pretty cool...should bundle Vita with a couple games from PS Mobile when it launches as well...
Price-cut could do the most significant spikes, but good bundles should be good enough for Vita this year hopefully to increase the user-base. I would love to play all my old classic PS games on Vita as well as some great PSP titles. I think 3DS really beat Vita to the punch with that price-cut, momentum never really slowed down for the platform after that.

mmmmm... if this is true, you Americans are not going to be happy bunnies:
Your list http://blog.us.playstation.com/2012/...ke-the-tour-2/
Our list http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2012/...ssics-line-up/
First the PS+ support now this, SCEE is trying hard to get their name out of the mud while SCEA is trying their best to take their place.
not mentioned about the new update is the ability to use touchscreen with PSP games now!
Got to say that it's hilarious flicking from the European blog to the American blog! The comments are SO different especially now that some of those on the American blog have seen the European blog. Classic stuff this. Sony should have done this on April 1st
by the way, people are copying PS1 games over from their PS3s that are not on that list and they're working, so perhaps it's just a typo. And some of those games are not on either list

It would seem SCEA wants to roll out titles a few at a time but it seems there are quite a few you can get by transferring from the PS3,
I'm actually shocked at how many people have bought PS1 games for the PS3. Some people have dozens of them. I wonder when PSMobile hits?
LOL. This has to be a deliberate wind up surely?
SCEJ embarrassing both
http://www.jp.playstation.com/psvita.../lineup01.htmlSCEJ is posting 297 PS1 games for #Vita today, 207 on 9/4, 120 on 9/11, and 36 on 9/18 for a total of 660.
LOLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've got to post that on N4G
where was that posted by the way?
edit: can you read Japanese?

Fuck backwards compatibility on PS3. But backwards-backwards compatibility is the shit.
The former I've heard since the Slim. The latter I've hard the past few days. Interesting.
In general, access to historical game libraries should always be revered. We all grew up on something that inspired us to keep gaming and revisiting that past can be one of the most joyful occasions in gaming. Finding that spark, that kid that was amazed at something...it pushes us to demand better from out content creators.
While Nintendo has always done better at offering up the past (GBA classics, e-Reader games, Animal Crossing [had full NES games built in], Virtual Console, etc...), it's not led to a major demand that Nintendo push those IPs (or create new ones to take that place) to continue that same creative passion for, for, I say, those same people. Nintendo is largely locked in retelling the same stories they did in the late 1980's. They are damn good about recreating the gameplay mechanics that surround that story, which is admirable in itself, but they rely to solidly on those same IP almost to a fault....which is also why their push to bring back the past has found such success.
Sony has taken much the opposite road. Pushing more for new IP than heralding their classic IP for the new and old age.
