How well do PSP games run on vita?

#1BlazakenkiPosted 2/16/2013 10:17:11 PM
Hey guys, I got Fate/Extra on my PSP through some.... interesting means. But i was thinking of buying it off the PSN (supporting the developper and hopefully we get the sequel) for my vita.

So i just wanted to ask if anyone has encountered some issues while running PSP games on the vita. Also, can you take screenshots?

For the record, i find F/E very challenging. Not frustratingly hard, just challenging.

You cannot take screenshots of PSP games, this I know for sure.

But other than that, I haven't encountered any game breaking crashes or freezes with the stuff I've played on it. But I figure an unstable Psp game will be unstable anywhere.

The Vita automatically tries to fit the Psp games into the Vita's resolution, so text may come across differently dependent on what you're playing. Just F.Y.I.

I have quite a few PSP games and I've yet to encounter anything that is detrimental when played on the Vita. FFT:WotL is still slow as molasses but that's because of crappy coding so it's present in both the PSP and Vita versions.

They look better on the Vita and the load times are seriously cut down

You can also map the second analog stick to either the directional d-pad or the front buttons.

I've only got one PSP game (Monster Hunter Freedom Unite) but I've had no issues at all, in fact it's even better with a second analog stick and the load times are noticeably faster than the disc + data install.

I got the Dissidia duodecim, it visually it has some jaggies, if you turn on the bilinear filtering the edge smooth a bit. game runs very smooth
