PlayStation Vita Supports A Lot More PSP Games Than Originally Announced (Updated)
Many of you Vita owners will love this one. It seems that the PlayStation Vita is capable of playing a LOT more than the 275 PSP games that were said to be compatible with the system at launch. Even though there’s a limited amount of purchasable PSP games from the PSN Store, users have been able to play many of the games they’ve purchased in the past and that aren’t listed on the Vita PSN store at all.
Hit the jump to find out how to get these PSP games onto the Vita.
Many PSP owners like myself who’ve purchased and downloaded games from the PlayStation Network in the past have been able to install games using the Content Manager app found on the Vita. So far I’ve been able to install Guilty Gear Judgement, LittleBigPlanet PSP, Flow, and Echochrome.
To install these games, players will have to:
- On their PS3, go to their downloaded items list. From there, re-download the PSP Games they’ve purchased before onto their PS3 system.
- Once download is complete, connect the PS Vita to the PS3 using the Vita’s USB charging cable (which came with the product).
- Using the Vita, access the Content Manager App, click on start. Choose – Copy Content – PS3 System to PS Vita System.
- Choose Applications (PSP/Other) – Click on “Applications Downloaded on the PS3 System”
- Once there, a list of PSP Games should be listed for copying. Players can choose which ones they want copied or choose select all to copy all games to their PS Vita system.
- Once games are chosen, click on the “Copy” button found on the lower right of the screen.
(Supported PSP Games will be copied to the Vita)
Stay tuned to this article in the next few days as I will update it with PSP games that are found to be compatible with the PlayStation Vita system, other than the 275 games that have been announced by Sony.
