    I'm not sure if this should be here or in hacking and homebrew. Anyways does anyone know if it is possible to transfer peace walker to a vita using a PS3 emulator?

    Is there not one in existence? This is my first Sony product since PSX so I don't really follow any developments on the PS3

    Yeah probably should've done a bit of research before asking this. Well anywho has anyone come across any news of peace walker on the vita without a ps3. The only thing I'm hearing that I can do is find a friend with a PS3 or wait for peace walker to get put on the vita store

    If this is your first console since the Psx, how were you able to buy Peace Walker on the Vita if its not available on the Vita Psn store? :wtf:

    It should be on the PSP PSN Store and you can buy PSP games for your Vita.

    I don't own a Vita so this is complete guesswork but could you transfer the save to your Vita via some type of data manager? I'm not much help though, sorry.

    i have a vita

    psp save data that you want to send to your vita (you MUST have CMA installed)
    on your PC PSP save are in a folder
    C:\User\"username"\Documents\PS Vita\PSAVEDATA\"account id"\"psp saves go here"

    you should able to copy them over

    the vita should see the save if you have it in the right place on your computer

    I haven't purchased it yet, but you can buy Peace Walker via MediaGo


    The PSP games downloaded onto a computer are in an eboot format rather than the .psvimg format used by a vita. And people who have managed to get Peace Walker or the demo on it using their PC's have said that their Vita recognizes it but then reports it as corrupt data

    Create a Peace Walker save on the Vita, backup to PC, replace the needed files with your Peace Walker save, restore backup and done.

    My friend did it so it should for you.

    Edit: and you can buy Peace Walker off Media Go and then download it on your Vita from the download/purchase history list. I'm guessing that's what OP is doing.

    Well this is my first time playing peace walker so saves are not the problem. The problem is that north American accounts cannot download peace walker directly onto the vita even if it's in the download history
