You probably remember seeing that our last update on PSone Classics coming to Vita wasn’t so great for U.S. Vita owners, with only nine titles being officially compatible at the time of the update. While nowhere near the 100+ titles available to European Vita owners, Siliconera has recently updated this list with a few more officially compatible titles:
• Arc the Lad II
• Championship Bass
• Extreme Pinball
• Hi Octane: The Track Fights Back
• Klonoa: Door to Phantomile
• Magic Carpet
• Medal of Honor
• Medal of Honor Underground
• Nuclear Strike
• Oddworld Abe’s Exxodus
• Oddworld Abe’s Oddysee
• Populous-The Beginning
• R4 Ridge Racer Type 4
• Rayman 1
• Rayman 2
• SimCity 2000
• Soviet Strike
• Tekken 2
• Theme Hospital
• Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six
• Vanguard Bandits
• Wing Commander IV
Twenty-six titles on top of the nine already available is quite nice and with the likes of Magic Carpet, Tomba! and Grandia making the list, there’s a healthy mix of quality classics now available. With Sony claiming that they’re making the classics compatible “as quickly as possible,” hopefully it won’t be too long before we have full compatibility.
PSone Classics are available to purchase on PSN via PS Vita, or PS3. Already purchased titles can be re-downloaded onto Vita, or transferred from a PS3 at no additional cost.
Grandia! Yay! I've been saving that one 😀
I've come so close to buying Grandia, so many times. Maybe one day I'll finally grab it. There's just so much to play these days!
Oh, do play Grandia. It's something special
Yeah, I know it is. I've read so many great reviews of it. It's just the matter of time. I've 50 hours deep into both Rainbow Moon and Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention and I've got Persona 3 and Tales of the Abyss sitting right behind both of them.
Hahah, yeah, being a RPG fan really does mess with time.
Oh, I didn't mention that I'm already about 5 hours into Dragon Fantasy (iOS) too, did I?
Haha… never enough time to play them all these days. Just never enough time.
Oh thank god- at least we get Oddworld, the Strike games, and Alundra. I don't get why Sony is being so ho-hum about PSOne classics- especially when there are so few new games on the Vita.
