    I've seen people transfer PS1 games through their PS3s, and I wanted to transfer Crash 1. I plugged in the cable, but the game wan't in the list I could transfer (and yes, it was in bubble form). I'm pretty sure i've transferred PSP games in the past, so why can't I transfer this?

    BTW, i'm in the U.S. if that matters.

    I've tried a few times and it should be easily done if the game isn't installed. If it's installed, it shouldn't show up IIRC. Can you try re-downloading the installer?

    not all ps1 game can be sent to the vita from the ps3 (Sony has control of the list of game that work and can be sent)
    can you just d/l right from the vita using your download list

    are you on the newest FW for both systems

    edit:
    i look at the PSN store on my vita (NA account)
    crash bandicoot not listed in the psOne section of the PSN vita store
    so it look like it not vita compatible at this time

    I have Crash Bandicoot 1 on my PSVita and it was downloaded straight to the PSVita via WiFi. Using EU PSN though. Pic below of the online PSN via a browser.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    for the EU PSN it works
    but
    for the US PSN it dose not work


    IDK what is keeping Sony from getting the games on the PSN for the vita to play (SE looking at you)

    EU has it NA doesn't.
    Same with Spyro iirc.
    But then NA has awesomeness like Xenogears and Chrono Cross and EU doesn't :(

    If you want it badly enough you could invest in a 4GB memory card and use it just for EU stuff (make a second account as EU!).
    I'm considering getting one myself just for NA stuff.

    Thanks for the info.

    Why can't they just release all the games, and if there are glitches, they can patch them?
