    Casual question - why is everybody so fixated on emulating an incredibly old system on a contemporary console if their PSP's (if they own PSP's) do that natively already and there's no need for further backwards compatibility? Besides, it's a rumour anyways - I'm pretty sure the Vita has more than enough power to pull this off flawlessly.

    We obviously have different definitions of 'great games'

    Truth to be told, it's not the console that counts but the games that represent it. For me, Tekken, Metal Gear Solid, Syphon Filter and Crock made the PSX what it is to me. You probably preferred Super Mario 64 and Starfox, and there ain't nothing wrong about that. A matter of taste, mm-hmm.

    Probably because Foxi's definition is better. The N64 had good games but nearly as many as the PSX.

    That's your opinion that PSX has more games that you'd play, other people may say something else.

    Quantitatively the PSX had a larger library of games.

    There's a reason the PSX outsold the N64 by like 3:1.

    and again if people enjoyed more games on the N64 over PSX, sheer amount of numbers means nothing to them.

    Might be using a virtualizer for the CPU, but the rest must be done in pure software emulation (like the GPU). The Vita's CPU is powerful enough to emulate a poor little R3000 anyways.

    I'm sure we'll be able to play them one day, one way or another :creep:
    Doesn't really matter if you can't do it from day one, I still play my PSP a lot for PSX titles.

    It's almost like they know it's gonna be hacked.

    The dual analog sticks would be perfect for a lot of PS1 games.

    Exactly. If it will rake in cash for them, then chances are they won't cut compatibility for PSone classics.

    As Yoshida said on twitter, they will not be playable thay one in Japan. I'm sure they're making modifications on the PS1 emulator they use on PS3/PSP, to accept the new inputs Vita uses. I think it'll be ready for US release anyway.

    lol what? I never ever played my psx and LIVED on my n64, you must have never played one. Its all opinion and perspective, and I can see where hes coming from I was never a big fan of sony consoles (never really touched my ps2 till GTA vice city and the KH and Ratchet and clank series came out)

    Unless there's no native virtualization and nobody decides to write/port a third-party emulator...

    Yeah, if they're not doing it it's likely for technical reasons.

    ITT Nintentards, the Thread.

    Seriously? N64 fucking sucks outside of Nintendo games and some 3rd party games. PS1 had a lot of gems, a lot more than N64 and even Gamecube. Just because you guys don't like, doesn't mean a lot of other people don't like too.

    Yet apparently, when the same people talk about NDS vs PSP, sheer numbers means everything. *ahem, bias*

    lol what.

    I'd ideally like to replace my PSP altogether - which I won't be able to do as of yet, as it might not play my bought classics or my UMD's - and I'm not willing to repay for them. I can't carry around a Vita, PSP, 3DS, and a phone. That being said, I don't see this affecting a lot of people. I don't know many people, outside of myself and a few friends, who use their PSP's to play Playstation Classics. And even so, unless you're a hardcore Playstation classic fan, I don't see it acting as a deal breaker.

    Not a deal breaker, just a major disappointment. It isn't as if I play PSX games often, but I'd certainly like the option, especially since I've bought them thinking they'll be compatible across future hardware as well as current.
