How confusing is this right?
Every few days we get a different word about what’s happening with PSoneclassics on Vita. First we get Joystiq saying it’s a gradual release, then we get Gamespot saying they’ll all be released. Then we get word that only the 6 or so PSoneclassics that have been shown will be the ones on the service. To confirm, not Joystiq or Gamespot gave a name to who told them their information. The only sourced interview done with anyone who works with PSOne classics on PSN is the interview I did with Monkey Paw games, which said he hasn’t had to convert his psoneclassics to work on Vita.
Yesterday the European Playstation blog said that Metal Gear Solid and Resident Evil 2 were confirmed to work with the new software 1.80, but now even more exciting news, Playstation Australia posts on their Facebook that at least 100 PSoneclassics will be playable on the Vita by the end of the month when 1.80 launched (August 28th).
This has been very confusing for everyone, I’m thinking someone at Sony Japan built the emulator and they don’t really know yet which games will work, so the testers are getting back to them with more games that work each few days. Don’t be surprised if like the PSP compatibility on the Vita certain games are purchasable through the store, and many many others work through transfer with the PS3.
Lets just hope that the new folders for music and videos works for games too, I’ll have a ton of them on my Vita.
