Metal Gear Solid is a must in my book. I'd also recommend Final Fantasy VII and Castlevania SotN

Until we get an official localization of VC3 that's playable on an unmodded Vita, hell yeah. I mean, I'd recommend VC3 over VC2 any day, but VC2 has that one major advantage.

Anyway, the moment of truth for tomorrow shall be interesting. That said, I'm half sure that Shuhei "not knowing" about this probably has to do with how poorly the tweet was worded to him. Didn't even state the word Vita in it, so.

What's the moment of truth tomorrow? Please tell me it's not a sale or something since I just bought a VC2 hahaha.

I just got my Vita the other day and one of the first games I downloaded was Capcom Classics Reloaded. People said I would need to push it through the PS3 but it was just sitting there waiting to be downloaded on my Vita, thought that was weird.

Does the Midway classics collection work now?

The PSP's native resolution is 480 × 272, where as the Vita's native res is 960 × 544.

So the Vita is exactly 4x the res of the PSP, meaning there isn't any upscaling/blurring. Each PSP pixel becomes 4 Vita pixels, giving a wonderfully clean image.

It can be jarring going from native Vita games to PSP ones, especially with the low res UI and text in PSP games. But the games themselves have never looked better.

Nope! The vita screen can display them perfectly or upscale them thanks it having four pixels for every PSP pixel. The screen should also be better (never owned a PSP) and battery life playing PSP games is something like 10 hours on the Vita. Did I mention you could map the right analog to the dpad as well? :D

Perhaps I didn't word that as well as I meant to.

I mean if the games suddenly download-enabled will appear on Vita's store or suddenly no longer be able to download directly on Vita like before.

And either way, don't worry. If you have a PS3, you can just transfer VC2 by wire to your Vita.

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!

YEEEESSSS!!!!

Also, don't forget FFI-X/2

I'd love confirmation. This would basically be the HD re-release of Alpha 3 that I've always wanted.

Yes, I can confirm ad-hoc and online works. I play the Capcom games through ad-hoc with my nephew Vita-to-PSP all the time. I've also connected to online in various games as well.

Did anyone else get Pocket Fighter (PSone) wiped from there download list? I'm staring at my email receipt from when I purchased it but it's not showing up. Also, when I go to the game's page on the store, it says "Add To Cart" instead of "Download". :(

Don't know if its related, but Pocket Fighter was always a weird one, in that it was only ever PS3 compilable. As far as I know, it was the only PS1 game that didn't work on PSP.

Imagine that ad. "I've always wanted to try out the Metal Gear series, but I don't want to buy all these old consoles..." *EXPLOSIONS* Vita bursts on the screen along with box art of every Metal Gear game up to 4.

Or in my case, I already had all my shit digitally on PSP to begin and thus already had a pretty decent reason for the upgrade.

Completely agree. My Vita is easily my favorite gaming console of all time. It's like having 6 consoles in 1! (PSone and PSP games, PS2 and PS3 ports, indies and native Vita games).

Depends if the servers are still up I think. I bought field commander last year and the servers were closed. I emailed SOE about it and they were cool enough to turn them back on. :D
