    Shit topic title.



    But IIRC, this is also a workaround for getting some PSP games on the Vita via the PS3. I don't know why Sony doesn't just allow access to it directly, though.

    I'm going to assume they dont offer them direct on the Vita possibly due to Sony having not tested them yet for perfect compatibility on the Vita yet. just a crazy arse hunch though

    That's pretty close to the thruth. According to the PlayStation BlogCast, the PS1 classics and PSP games that you can transfer to the Vita have in fact been tested, but they just have not been put up on the PlayStation Store for Vita. So the process of releasing a game for a Vita is first testing it for compatibility, the enabling transfer from a PS3 if it works and finally releasing it on the PlayStation Store.

    Brilliant, now to buy a Vita.. Curious if the screen play is better than my old PSP 3k and to try those sticks.
