The only way to have games from multiple regions on the Vita is to have multiple memory cards (one card per region), and then go through a process of factory resetting the Vita each time you swap cards,

Thanks I have 2 cards but the process is annoying, wasn't sure if psp/ps1 were excempt. Only tried the ps3 transfer with Jp vita demos and was not successful.

Would like Breath of Fire 3 and the EA compilation with Road Rash on my vita. Not to mention dozens of ps1 games on jp psn.

The one PS1 game (Thrasher), and the one PSP game (Lumines) I want to play are probably never going to be released digitally. What a cruel world.

Hay Gaf, I'm just wondering with the Vita now being able to play all of the PSP and PS1 digital library, what games are the best? I put 20 bucks in my account (only cost 16 bucks thanks to Sony Rewards :)) and am aware of some of the games (Motor Storm Arctic Edge, GT PSP, Twisted Metal Head On, MGS Portable Ops and many others).

The thing is, I sadly really didn't get into Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 on Vita (got the HD collection a while back) and aren't the fimilar with the JRPG genera. What recommendations does Gaf recommend while the flood gates are still open? Any suggestions would be nice :).

Playing Parasite Eve, the upscaling is pretty good after a little tweaking to the screen size.

You can also set a custom screen size (I suggest keeping the same aspect ratio).

Absolutely. PAL-land Vita is stuck with PAL versions of PSone classics, which is reason enough to use a US account on the Vita.

Maybe it's just me, but it seems ever so slightly incorrectly scaled when in the "original" mode, and it aggregates me. Anyone else notice this with PS1 games?

I ended up getting Rock Band Unplugged Lite and the MotorStorm/Twisted Metal Double Pack (not a bad deal for 20 bucks :)). Considering all the phrase Gaf has given these games (notably Twisted Metal and Motor Storm Arctic Edge), I hope I have lots of fun with them :).

So happy Vita owners can play much more PSP and PS1 content on our Vita's; the system just makes playing these games all the more satisfying with the amazing screen and re-mappable buttons. Outside of maybe a game or two, glad I got all the games I wanted just encase this flood gate Sony opened up closes (there was a reason why these games didn't work on Vita before :().

I may not be as sensitive to it, but it looks perfect in Original. Zoom, Full, and "Normal" look borked though.

Sony Rewards is awesome. I buy tons of stuff off PSN store so being rewarded for my purchases is nice. I'm awaiting a $20 PSN card in the mail. :)

It also helps that where I work I get 10% off most everything, so the $50 PSN cards only cost me $45, but I still get the full $50 value from the card. Add to the fact that I always wait for "flash sales" or PS+ deals, and I'm netting tons of games and content for very little. Can't wait to shop around for some PSOne/PSP titles now. Been making a list after seeing so many people praise certain games. I'm really tempted by Gladiator Begins, that one looks pretty cool and I think I've heard a lot of people talk good about it.

You do that by using the points you already have (there is a minimum of 250 points for 10+ dollar items) + money you have on your credit card; I got a 10 Dollar Code from the site (about 400 points + 6 bucks in credit) and took out an additional 10 bucks via Fund Withdrawal. It is nice to finally use Sony Rewards again after loosing access to my account for so long (long story :().

Uh oh. Did Sony "fix" this now? I just purchased Jeane D'Arc, Daxter and Motorstorm: AE from the SEN online store. But now I can't download JD'A or Motorstorm from the Vita's download list. Plus, all of the games that I could download to it before -- including the Spyro and Crash games, along with Um Jammer Lammy -- are no longer downloadable.

God damn it. At least I can use a PS3 to get my copy of JD'A...

Not on my end in NA. Spyro: Ripto's Rage is still downloadable as well as the Peace Walker demo(those were the two games I tested when this popped up).

It's honestly infuriating. If they know there may be issues with certain games, just put in a "beta" or "experimental" caveat, like Amazon does with Kindle stuff.

That's just odd, as I just got Motorstorm, Rock Band PSP and Twisted Metal (around 11ish) and all installed perfectly...maybe you should try downloading the games via web store (as the download button once clicked gives you the option to download the games to your PS3/PSP/Vita).

You could try re-booting your Vita and seeing if that fixes your problem. I had a feeling this crap would happen; Sony closing the flood gates :(. At least you got the games on your account (plus the fact Daxter works natively on Vita :)).

Edit: Just checked my Download history and it still has the Crash/Spryo games, Pac-Man CE Mini, Twisted Metal, Motorstorm, and other normal non-compatible PS1/PSP games are still working... I think its just your Vita :l.

I tried rebooting my Vita -- I've watched too much IT Crowd not to! :) -- and I'm not sure what you mean by the web store. Like, the SEN store? I doubt that would work, as the Vita isn't listed as compatible for those games either.

Once you click the download icon, it will give you the option between downloading the game to your PS3, PS Vita, and PSP. It gave me that option when I got my games :l. I'm really sorry man, we can finally play these great games...and then Sony again doesn't let us play them. Good luck man :(.

No I believe you man :)! I can see Sony pulling this with there customers, as these games weren't compatible with the Vita before, so them granting it to everything is very unrealistic.

You should post a picture though, as you may be the first of many cases of people loosing access to their games to work on Vita.

So I kind of asked this before but I should be more specific. I'm interested in LoK: Blood Omen but mostly for the story. Does it hold up well enough to make a playthrough for that purpose worth it? Or should I just watch a Let's Play of it?

If the floodgates are really closing, Sony is going to have LOTS of fun dealing with the very angry Vita audience :l.

If you own a PS3 you can transfer Silent Hill and Metal Gear Solid to your Vita via PS3 to Vita transfer.
