    This is very close to a dealbreaker for me, but i have hope for homebrew. Homebrew is heaven for this type of shit.

    You can still just play them on the PSP.

    But it's still a bit of a downer, since the dual analogs would be nice. Hopefully they'll give us some PS2 Classics.

    You guys are probably best waiting for Sony to say something about this (but I know you all won't anyway

    The original FAQ says you can play Playstation Classics, it could be a mistranslation or just jumping at the gun.

    It says 'Game Archives', which probably means more to the Neo Geo, etc games.

    EDIT: My bad, game archives in Japan means Playstation Classic, Andriasang tells a different story though...

    It would be cool if someone puts rumour on the title though so nobody gets the wrong idea.

    maybe not at launch, like the psp
    but it should come latter

    but go to SONY'S support page
    http://us.playstation.com/support/answer/index.htm?a_id=2254
    so
    ps1 games should work on the vita

    If true it's not a dealbreaker for me, I do have a PSP and Xperia Play for handheld PS1 games.

    I am curious what the reasoning behind it would be though - all it really does is confuse consumers, and it removes a possible source of income for Sony, all they need is a well done emulator and then just keep throwing old games at us for £5+ a game, surely that's just easy money?

    Your wish is my command.

    I do think it'd be silly if they didn't sell PSOne Classics. It's just basically pure profit, almost every PSX game they sell on there turned a profit a long time ago.

    I'm gonna guess Sony need time to create another PSOne emulator. If memory serves me correct, the PS3 took a little time to play PSOne classic.

    They've coded a PSP emulator for it. The PSOne emulator is coded for PSP. Surely they can just run the emulator under the emulator so we can game while we game? Wait...
    Point is they say that you'll be able to run all PSP games on it. If they've got an emulator accurate enough for that it should be able to run POPSloader as well.

    I'm pretty sure the PSP ran PSOne games by virtualization which means it (if memory serves me correct) had PSOne hardware to run PSOne games. If that PSOne hardware isn't in the Vita than they just can't reuse POPSloader.

    They'd probably want a new emulator to incorporate some new stuff (second analog stick, new screen, maybe add some features, etc). I think running the PSOne emulator on the PSP through the PSP emulator on the Vita would be kinda silly.

    This reminds me when Nintendo said that the 3DS wont have any GBA games on the VC.

    Cutting out PS1 games seems like a bit of a deal breaker to me, but PS2 games would go a long way to make up for that.

    Crap, now I may not be able to play the classic Front Mission games and Chocobo Dungeon series on my Vita

    I hope PS2 classics are Vita compatible, Front Mission 5 is the best in the series and would make up for losing the ability to play the other 4 games in the series that are PS classics, plus there's FM4 which is just as good.

    Not too many good PSX games anyway.
    PS2 games on the other hand...
    If the Vita had a huge library of PS2 games, I will consider getting it.

    *jaw drops, brain implodes, someone just insulted the best 32-bit console in the world, the Saturn Stomper, the N64 Destroyer, the cream of the crop*

    You, sir, never played on a PSX before. Otherwise you'd know better.

    I can't even begin to understand your train of thought, mainly because I can think of hundreds of great games for the PSX, and only a handful for the Saturn and the N64.
