If you go to the site above you will see it says that Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops works with both the PSP AND the PS VITA. Go look and see it says that info right next to the word Platform.

Platform:PSP®, PSVita

Don't believe that site's lies. It says almost every PSP game is Vita compatible. Even games that were never released on PSN: http://us.playstation.com/games/yu-g...force-psp.html

Any game that is downloadable on PS3 is transferable to Vita and should work

Heck even those who hacked the PSP emulator on the Vita can confirm that even UMD rips of games that never came to PSN work.

Aside from a few exceptions the PSP emulator on the VIta is universally compatible.

Its just licensing issues guys. Stuff that gets put on the back burner because PSP has been out of the picture for the most part

I really hope they are working on setting up the legacy library for an update to preserve all of these great games that so many missed out on

So if I can download MGS:PO to my PS3 I will then be able to transfer it to my PS Vita? Are you sure about that?

I don't know if just on mobile or what but the OP of this CAG thread needs to fix the tags in his code. Hard to read. It's been like that for ages. Still the best overall list on the web, though.

...Ape Escape On the Loose is downloadable on Vita already; its even in the Vita PSN Store. Its a great game that is well worth the 7 bucks :).

I know what Sony pulled really sucks, but lets not forget that there are still a large amount of PS1 and PSP games that can still be played on Vita. There are lists on Gaf and other sites that explain this better than I could :).

Today's date: April 30th 2014: the day Sony releases the PS Vita's 3.15 firmware update.

I have my "forbidden" games backed up on my PC and PS3 ; have my Vita in "Flight Mode"; modified my router's security to MAC address filtering and excluded my Vita ; got all the games I wanted from the Golden Week sale in preparation to isolate my Vita from the outside world.

Bring it on, Sony, I'm ready.



Doesn't hurt to be prepared, does it? :P

Fuck man. I just got my 64GB card and I could swear some games I had on the vita and deleted at one time now won't transfer at all from PS3.

Specifically trying:
Blood Omen Legacy of Kain
Crash Bandicoot
Bloody Roar
Brave Story New Traveler

It's like it can't even see these games on the PS3 and I am pretty sure a few of them used to be visible. I wonder what else has changed?

Can someone give me the idiots guide to backing these games up.

During the "glitch" I bought Def Jam NY, Sega Collection and Midway Collection.
I would like to delete them from my Vita.
I see people saying to back them up to the PS3..which I can do.
But when I check my Download List on the PS3 those 3 games are available to download.

If I d/l them directly to my PS3 via the account management will they work when I am ready to transfer them to my Vita?

No. Plug your Vita into your PS3 via the USB cable and start Content Manager on Vita. It should be fairly straightforward from there.

Hmm, i don't get it. Does Dissidia work on Vita, and only the DLC is blocked? Or nothing works at all?

By works, I mean Sony allows it to work of course.

I just turned on my US Vita to DL Dragon's Crown and my incomplete PSP2 download from the previous glitch completed and installed. Booted it up to make sure, and yep it's working. No idea if this is a short term glitch or if they are finally unlocking it for real.

I haven't done it, but supposedly yes if you transfer it from a PS3. This requires you to not have 2FA enabled on your PSN account.

Yup. I was able to get a large handful of games on my Vita during the glitch. But there were more important ones I simply didn't own at the time, and wish I had.
