Vita Compatibility With PS1 and PSP Games Removed

By   /   Apr 24, 2014

Earlier this week, following a PlayStation Network maintenance, Sony surprised everyone by allowing many PlayStation One and PSP classics to be downloaded directly on to your PlayStation Vita.

Suffice to say Vita owners were thrilled about the new found compatibility. Unfortunately that functionality has now been completely removed.

Amongst the lot, players had confirmed to be able to download and play Crash and Spyro PS1 titles, Jeanne D’Arc, Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops, Brave Story, Motorstorm: Arctic Edge, and Phantasy Star Portable 2. Following the removal, many Vita owners have now confirmed that they are no longer able to download the said titles anymore.

However, those who had already downloaded the games will still be able to play them. So far there haven’t been any reports of players facing issues while playing their downloaded classic titles. Which spells bad news for those who were hoping to wait for the weekend to try out some PSOne titles.

Sony has kept throughout this ordeal. There was no announcement when the functionality was offered and there has been none following its removal.

It seems more like that it was a mistake on Sony’s part and they have corrected it days later. The company most likely wants to conduct further tests on the compatibility before making an official announcement.
