    It's not really a feature I was die-hard wanting, but its nice to see that rumor finally answered.

    I'm sure this will have a negative impact upon it's initial reception....given that at launch not all PSP games are supported, and no PSX at all, it's a major disappointment for those people with PSN accounts full of PSOne Classics hoping to replace their portable PSX machine with the Vita.

    It's about the fact that you're obliged to have both PSP and Vita if you want a portable system compatible with the PSN content you already have, which runs contrary to Sony's initial promises about BC.

    Who doesn't want options for $300+ for a handheld?

    Especially options that the previous one had.

    PSP didn't have PS1 when it launched, it's low-priority really.

    Has PS1 now, doesn't it? I see absolutely no reason why that shouldn't carry over.

    One reason could be that it isn't finished? ...

    Could the 3DS play DSi ware at launch?

    He meant DSiWare. And the answer is no.

    Given that it's supported on both the PS3 and the PSP, I can't see why it would take so long for them to implement it on the Vita.

    Did people complain?

    DSiWare didn't come on a cart...

    We don't know if it's taking long or it's just at the bottom of the list of things to do.
    Are people complaining now?
    Well yes, you.
