Wait, what's the problem here? Isn't this a good thing?

It is. It's just that some people were soured over buying these games during the recent flash sale because they couldn't be used on North American Vitas. As a result, some did not buy them.

Fortunately for me, I did buy the Crash games because I figured they'd be available one day! :) I'm sure my nephew is gonna love 'em!

Great, now open the floodgates for all the other games that mysteriously won't do it for no reason.

So you can buy games before they're officially available? Seems odd.

This raises a question, why was it no possible before but now it is? Sony acquired crash rights confirmed.

Bought all Crash and Spyro games this weekend. It's understand able if you didn't get any but considering there were already working on Vita in Europe and the outrage this weekend I honestly thought they were going to come eventually. If not I only spent a few bucks on stuff I still own and could play on my PS3.

Thank the heavens, the check finally cleared!

For some reason I have Crash Tag Team Racing on my PSN account. It's downloadable via the list too.
The PSP game? You couldn't play that on Vita before?

Whoa, basically everything on my PSN download list from PSP is downloadable now. Even a removed game like DBZ: Shin Budokai ...
Oh, interesting. I wonder why this is happening?

Luckily I received the Crash trilogy and Spyro for free back when they were free for PS+ members.

Heh. 6 bucks well spent. I wish I didn't start Crash on my PS3 already. Is there anyway to transfer save data?

Downloading Crash 2 right now to my Vita.

I honestly forget which Crash/Spyro games I own versus which are through PS+. Time to check the store.

Really fucking stupid that they didn't change this before they put them all on sale. There's no way I'm spending full price on them now.

This is a very merry development!

How I look forward to playing my Crash games on that bright, shiny OLED.
