Hmm. Hmm. So.

Got Xenogears off of my download list. Magical Drop F is no longer in my download list, guess it got pulled? Can't install a non-bubble. Can't install my game. Thanks, Sony!

Still can't get FF7 to show up on my Vita via Content Manager... wtf

Try downloading another PS1 game.

Very strange. At first my ps+ copy of sotn wasn't showing up but after I downloaded my purchased copy of FFVI they both showed up and are copying over now. Ps+ games work it seems.

Maybe it has to refresh...something? This is all so bizarre.

My God, Sony.

I don't even know what the hell they're doing anymore.

I thought for sure all games would be compatible with the Vita ;_;

The situation is pretty much simple.
Psone games needs to certified again to be published as Vita titles on the VIta store, that's why only a bunch of games are officially downloadable through the PSVita right now.
BUT the internal emulator has 100+ titles compatibility list and if you have purchased those titles through a PS3 you can trasfer them over the Vita and play them.

Unfortunately Sony created confusion on the matter because they probably don't want to explain the certification thing.

did you do some kind of restart?

What are you doing? Restarting the Vita? Restarting the PS3? Disconnecting anything? We need details man.

I didn't restart. I downloaded Final Fantasy VII and for some reason that didn't appear also. But then I tried again and Chronicles and FFVII appeared. But my Crash Bandicoot still didn't show up. So I really didn't do anything special

MAKE SURE YOUR GAMES ARE NOT INSTALLED ON PS3 OR ELSE THEY WON'T SHOW ON THE TRANSFER. I have to re-DL a few games since they won't show but are installed.

You can install, but don't delete the bubble. I had FF8 downloaded months ago with the bubble waiting for this very night and it worked the moment the Vita updated.

I had the opposite I had to install them to get them to transfer. nothing showed in content manager, I have the bubbles for FFVII, FFIX, Alundra, Castlevania and Kain. After I installed them to the PS3 all show as transferable. Holy molly does the transfer take forever.

you actually need to install them on your PS3 and have the bubbles to copy them to the Vita. Wild

No. You just need the bubbles. Don't install. If you install, you lose the bubble and have to download the game again. They don't have to be installed on the PS3. I just copied over Final Fantasy IX. I have the bubble on my PS3, but it's not installed.

I thought they did an update where installing from the bubble no longer deletes the bubble from the PS3. Maybe I'm mistaken?

Not true. The bubble stays even after you install a game for PSX games and PS minis.

I still can't get anything to show up, I guess I will go to sleep and hope that it works tomorrow.
