Whoa I came to be snarky but when I saw it downloaded and installed AND there's already a PS1 classic background picture for it when you are on the Live Area Screen. This is...arousing.

Finally I can finish that whore of a game UmJammer Lammy. Fucking broken fucking game. Fuck you lammy. Fuck you. Oh yeah um PS1 games whoooooooo

This is good news. Hopefully the announcement will be soon and I can finally buy a Vita. I have tons of PSOne games from PS+ and my own purchases.

Either it was a mistake, seems unlikely that the Vita would even show it, or there's an incoming firmware update that will enable it.
yeah i was thinkin since they put it up, even if it was a mistake, we're going to see a firmware update with ps1 support real soon since they are configuring everything i guess, which is why i thought it was threadworthy.

For £3.99, I decided to confirm that this is legit and poke around a bit. The thing boots into the PSP emulator, which would initially suggest it's just mislabelled or something, but the custom Live Area background confirms the support is coming.

I tried to pull up the parental controls and size for it, but it just gives a blank screen.

I still don't understand why Sony is having trouble with PSone games on the Vita. I mean, this should have been included day 1.
You don't see how testing compatibility of every psone game could take time? Let alone writing a hopefully better emulator than the one that runs on the Xperia play.

I imagine they just ported the PSone emulator from PS3 over, but now it's the matter of testing it out. They're probably testing it with every game from every region currently available to make sure there's no unexpected surprises.

I guess they had to test every PSP game too, and that seemed to be the number one priority for launch.

Its probably taking long because the Vita is new hardware and the games all have their own unique emulator for 100% compatibility. If they used a universal emulator a few games would probably run like crap.

They also have to work on getting all the Minis working on the Vita. It's so frustrating getting so many of them from PS+ and almost none of them working on the Vita.
