Vita owners rejoice! At long last, Sony adds PS1 Classics to the Vita, among other small updates with the new firmware available today. Sony also adds D-Pad support to the main menu and have made the internet browser a bit easier to use. However, arguably the biggest and best change is the addition of the PS1 games. That said, Sony have only added 9 PS1 games to the PSN Store, with more games coming each week. Each game also comes with customizable controls, as well as the feature to play in different aspect ratios.
While the list of games is small at the moment, Playstation 3 owners are in for a treat. With a PS3, you can download PS1 games to the system and copy them to the Vita. While it may seem like a hassle, it’s definitely worth it to play the games that aren’t up on the Vita’s PSN Store quite yet. Personally however, I believe this method will only further anger Vita owners who have been awaiting this feature, as not all may have a PS3 at home. As well as the fact that the European PSN Store managed to get all 100+ PS1 classics onto the Vita. While I’m very pleased to finally be able to play Final Fantasy 6 on the Vita, Sony has a lot of work to do to please some fans.
