So, now I can play, natively on my Vita:

Metal Gear
Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake
Metal Gear Solid
Metal Gear Solid 2
Metal Gear Solid 3
Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

Plus, I can play Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeros and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain through Remote Play. If Sony were to make Guns of the Patriots and Rising available on PlayStation Now, you could play the entire franchise on a Vita!

WAIT. Does this mean that I'll actually be able to buy Phantasy Star Portable, Brave Story and others!?

Or are they only available for people who already own them?

Just downloaded Tetris and tested it out with the Vita d-pad. It's every bit as good as I expected.

I'm no longer mad about not buying the crash games in that flash sale because of this and the Capcom collections.

It's delisted so only those who bought it before are getting it through the download list.

technically you can play mgs 4 and rising on the vita through remote play via a CFW ps3 (did that with dmc collection when i had my cfw ps3)
plus you forgot VR missions, which i still need to get to playing.

I never knew Brave Story was ever available as a download to begin with. Dammit, I wish I had gotten that before it was delisted.

Damn my insistence on not rebuying digital games I already own physically.

i.e., does Crisis Core work?

Someone at SCEA leaned against a giant "make everything compatible" button.

Until SCEA says something about it this is the only logical conclusion I can arrive at using several scientific disciplines.

Too bad someone didn't lean on the "market the vita's value" button.

It's just a backend change. No change to the Vita firmware needed. Games would be flagged in the store database as whether they're Vita compatible or not. Any games flagged as incompatible couldn't be downloaded.

They've just flagged EVERYTHING as compatible now.

Dissidia's worked for months at least. That's part of why I assumed it was all PSP games already.

If there was no firmware, then either the updated emulator is in the wrapper, as in you download it with the game. Or it was fixed in the last firmware update, and they only just flipped the switch at the store.

My bet is on the latter.

Nothing ever needed to be updated. These games always worked on the Vita as shown by hacked vitas, they just weren't available on the store.

I also believe the latter because I just bought silent hill 2 days ago and it wouldn't let me download it directly to the Vita.
