NOTE: If you post whether or not a game worked, please indicate if the PSone game was purchased or acquired through Plus. Will be updated as new titles get confirmed.

How To Transfer A PSone Game From Your PS3 To Your Vita:
If you have a game you'd like to copy that isn't available on the Vita's version of the PSN yet, don't fret just yet. If you see a game listed above you can copy it from a PS3 to your Vita. Please note that you have to do all of these steps even if you currently have the PSone game you want installed on your PS3.

Step One: Go to the PS Store on your PS3. You must be logged into the same account on your PS3 that is on your Vita.

Step Two: Go to the PS3 Games section and then the PSone Classics.

Step Three: Find the game you'd like to copy. Download it to your PS3. Purchase it if you haven't already, but previously bought games and PS Plus freebies will also work on your PS3 & Vita, too.

Step Four: With the game downloaded to your PS3, it will look like this on the PS3's main menu/XMB. This is the game's installation bubble which you can use to install the game to your Vita, PS3, or both.

Step Five: Making sure you're at the PS3's main menu/XMB with nothing else open on the PS3 or Vita, plug your Vita into your PS3 using the Vita's data cable. Your Vita will automatically start bobbing the Content Manager icon. Open it.

Your PS3 will automatically display this screen.

Step Six: You're going to select Copy Content from PS3 to Vita, Applications, PlayStation, and then Applications Downloaded on the PS3 System. This is all super-obvious, but I figured extra screen caps couldn't hurt.

Step Seven: Select your PSone game(s) you wish to copy. Hit copy. The game will copy from the PS3 to Vita.

That's it, you're done! The game will pop up on the last screen on your Vita at the bottom, just scroll down.

Congrats- you might have just added one of the best games ever made to your Vita.


works for Gamestop (lol)
Might have conflicting reports judging from other thread, but Crash Bandicoot and Castlevania Chronicles do not transfer.

These are PS+ copies

Make a list of games that do not transfer too, OP :)

Someone said SotN wouldn't transfer but my legit bought PSN copy does so it may be tied to plus. Maybe it has to roll out on Vita for things to work. Not sure.


there's ALWAYS ONE
I'm in the process of copying them over now, but barring the Vita giving me an error when I try to launch them, Front Mission 3, Klonoa, and Breath of Fire IV work.
Anyone know if PSone games are region locked? For example, I assume Japanese PSone games won't work on a North American Vita, but am I right?
Can you give a step by step tutorial how to copy the games? I can't copy anything and some of my games are from that list.
Basically, you go to the classics section on a PS3 and redownload the game to the PS3.

Once it's fully downloaded (you don't need to install it), you connect your Vita and go to content manager. You can copy the game from there.
Hot Shots Golf 2 worked for me via PS3 transfer, i received it via playstation plus.

downloading international track and field (other PS+ freebie), will test/edit in results in like 5 min.

International Track and Field PS+ ps3 transfer worked.
Copy and paste from the other thread:

It seems like Sony can't get their message together.
If you download the games from the store on the PS3 and you DON'T install them so that they're still represented as bubbles, then you can transfer them on the PSVita.
The short list on the US Blog refers to the titles directly downloadable through the PSVita, but if you have a PS3 you can transfer other games.
