Sony releases supported PSP title list for Vita

PSP titles that will work on Vita

Today Sony released a first-round list of downloadable PSP titles that will work on the upcoming PlayStation Vita. There are, of course, a disappointing number of games that aren’t on this list, such as Valkyria Chronicles II, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

That’s not to say that the games won’t be added eventually, as Sony mentions that this list is just a first round for the Vita.

This list is only helpful to those who own these PSP games in a digital form, however, as UMD transfer of titles is not coming to the North American market. Those who have owned a PSP and UMD titles for years can only play their titles on their old PSP (which is not necessarily a bad thing, since the battery life is far better on the PSP than the Vita). Alternatively, they could re-purchase their games in a digital form (provided they’re on the list).

The Vita launch in North America continues to suffer from minor missteps; individually they aren’t much of a big deal but when you add them up, Sony seems to be lacking the polish of other manufacturers’ product launches.

Hey, at least Final Fantasy Tactics is on the list.

    BHHammy Too bad I hate Final Fantasy Tactics.

    Financial points prevent me from becoming an early adopter of systems, but I wouldn't do it for this system even if I did. The stuff that keeps piling on about the launch is making me wonder if this is just going to be the PSPgo all over again.

    RahnalH102 This thing has been off to a rough start lately. I'd like a PSP of some sort and the older version are looking like my target since they have the games I want. No UMD and this limited (although still has potential) list aren't exactly helping. I'm a niche gamer when it comes to this area so I expect this trouble.

Howdy, Stranger!
