Did Sony improve the emulator for PSP and PS1 games on the Vita in the last update and just didn't update the backend until now? Seems really really strange.

Darn it I didn't even know there was a limit on how many things you can set to download at once. I've never tried downloading so many things.

The emulator didn't need improving. These games always worked, its just that they weren't available due to licensing issues. Most companies didn't bother updating the license for the Vita store because they didn't find it worth their time and money.

Hopefully it still works when I get back from work at 2AM. Heck, hopefully it's permanent.

Wow, now I'm glad I decided to grab all the Crash and Spyro games in that flash sale. I was going to play them later once I could use my PS3 again, but this is way better.

It was obvious that SCEA would eventually add Vita support to those games considering all the other regions already had it.

This goes to show how good PS+ is:

I have all the Crash & Spyro games for free thanks to PS+ (aside from Crash 1, which I bought back when it first hit PSN).

Wait a god damn minute.

Did someone say that Pac-Man CE is now working?

And if all PS1 games are working, can I finally play R-Types and R-Type Delta on my Vita? I know they're delisted, but I have the install bubbles sat on my PS3 just incase they ever got enabled on the Vita. Or can I just grab them from my download list?

Good thing I bought them in anticipation of them being playable on the Vita one day.

I also hope all this other PSP stuff becoming playable isn't a mistake; this is how it should've been since day one.

Minis version of Pac-Man CE is awful so far as I'm concerned. The ghost timing is off compared to the Xbox 360 version, meaning a lot of strategies you may have learned go out the window.

It's a nice novelty, but I can't play it seriously.

Yes man, Pac-Man CE now works on Vita :)! Don't know about the R-Type games (as I don't own them) but for now, every PSP, PS1 and PS Mini now work on Vita. If you have the games in your download list....get them now man! Who knows if this is just a mistake or not with the Vita store, but just get them just in case :).

Jeanne D'Arc has always worked, you just needed to download it to your PS3 first and then transfer it over to the Vita using the Content Manager. Now you can download it straight to your Vita.

Those other reigions have had it since the feature was launched so it wasn't exactly obvious. I just think its scummy of Sony to not announce this with the sale rather than allowing them to playable as soon as it ends.

I already owned Crash 1, but I picked up 2 & 3 during the sale. Now, I wish I grabbed the Spyro games as well. I've been waiting so long for Crash to be playable on the Vita lol.

Well, yeah. You're right.

I did already have all the Spyro and Crash games on PSN, though, and my first reaction when seeing that they were discounted was "Well, now everyone is going to buy this and complain on social networks, so they'll have to add Vita support".

So glad I bought these during the sale. I didn't expect them to be enabled so soon afterwards, but I figured there was a good chance it would happen eventually (granted, they should have been downloadable ages ago).

Assuming this isn't a bug, a more charitable possibility is that all the complaints stemming from these games being on sale finally gave SCEA (and Activision?) a kick in the pants to make enabling these on Vita a priority. Isn't today the first full business day since the sale?

The Collection always worked on Vita (I own it myself :)), you just had to transfer it from your PS3. Great deal for 10 bucks; tons of awesome Genesis games and the only way to play Sonic 1 and 2 on Vita ;).

Yeah, I was content with PS3 access. Unless you only had a Vita and PS4 I don't see why you'd have skipped anyway if you would've bought with Vita compatibility.
