PS Vita gets added PSP and minis support

Submitted by on Tuesday, 15 May 20126 Comments

PSP PSVita e1337110658183 PS Vita gets added PSP and minis supportPS Vita owners will have a little more to do with their shiny new handheld. While its not Resistance: Burning Skies or Gravity Rush, many legacy PSP titles and minis will be playable on the Vita starting today.

The US PlayStation Blog explains that the new additions to the list of Vita supported PSP and minis is due to several improvements. Jamil Miles, Senior Manager of Brand Marketing Handheld Consoles explains:

These aren’t just the same games you might have played at one time in the past! We’ve not only improved graphics for some of these titles, but in some cases, we’ve also improved playability on Vita.

Early PS Vita adopters have been waiting eagerly for legacy support to get more attention than it has. A US PlayStation Blog post from Jeff Rubenstein dated 9 Feb revealed the initial list of PSP and minis on Vita. The real question is, how much longer will we need to wait for more titles to be added? More importantly, when will support for PSOne Classics be added?

Take a look at the list of supported PSP and minis titles being added today, as well as a list of “Coming Soon” titles. After reading through the list, tell us in the comments which titles your most looking forward to and which titles are missing. I see no sign of SOCOM in the Vita’s future.
