PSP games on Vita (warning)

#1toms86Posted 4/9/2012 2:03:13 AM
Ok I'm sure a lot of people already know this but I found out the hard way. I picked up my vita and was able to transfer all my downloaded PSP games from my ps3 to my Vita, not all of them where available on vita PSN. I thought this is great I'll go out and get another PSP game. I picked up Naruto Impact for the PSP threw my ps3 and when I went to port it nothing showed up. I thought I did something wrong but no it turns out that many PSP games, even using ps3 for download/transfer, do not work/show up. So I spent $39.99 on a game that I can't even play. Hopefully future updates will allow me to play it. On that note if anyone knows when there going to update Vita's PSP library please post.

Thanks

They will usually note on the PSN if it won't work on the Vita.

Read the description for a game thoroughly before you buy it. :(

It has been said many times that the PS3 transfer method doesn't work with all PSP games.

1. Stop throwing your ps3 around.

2. If game is not available in Vita's PS store PSP section, it most likely will not work on vita.

That's not true. I am playing KOF Collection and Valkyria Chronicles on the Vita. And those two are not anywhere to be found on the PSV PSN. A lot of games out there that are working on the Vita. So I'd suggest look around the board to see if anyone asked about the same game.

Since I am here that means I am hopelessly lost and need your help with something (or I have nothing better to do at the moment).

This is something you should have researched first. We even have topics on this board full of lists of what works and what doesn't

Anyway, you will be able to play it eventually as Sony has stated that every game currently available on PSN will work at some point

Not true. There is a LARGE amount of psp games not officially compatible that work by transferring through a ps3
