So can you not play PS1 games from PSN on the Vita?

I just recently got my Vita along with a couple of games (Soul Sacrifice and P4G), and one of the things I was looking forward to was playing some of the Playstation classics I had on my PSN account on the go. So I got to download some Spyro and Bloody Roar and...it says that I cannot download them on the Vita. What gives? Even the PSP let me play my PS1 games on it.

Some games can be downloaded from the Vita store directly.
Some other games can be downloaded on the PS3 then transferred to Vita.
The other games won't work through either ways.

Nope, Vita has no games.

This topic should be useful for reference. Just avoid games marked in RED in those lists as they aren't compatible. Games in Blue require downloading to PS3 first, then transferring to Vita.

Enjoy!

That scam is only for US people. In EU every game which is in vita's psn works on vita though US versions are better...

That sucks man. I absolutely despise Sonys lackadaisical attitude towards PS1 titles on the Vita. There's no damn reason most PS1 titles aren't compatible.... None.
