We want all the PSoneclassics, thanks.
There has been a small debate going on between websites, Joystiq and Ign in particular in the case of PSoneclassics on the the Vita. Earlier this week at the Sony E3 Press conference it was announced that they would be available to play on the Vita “This summer”. This wasn’t the best news, considering this feature has been promised since the device launched here in the West in February, and in the December when it was launched in Japan.
Joystiq’s JC Fletcher yesterday wrote an article stating that PSoneclassics would be rolled out gradually over the summer, but just the next day IGN’s Playstation editor Colin Moriarty stated that all PSoneclassics on the network would all be available to play as soon as the firmware is available over PSN. Who is to be believed? I asked Jeff Rubenstein on the Playstation blog for a bit of a clarification, but him being just a figurehead this is what we received.
So what’s happening with PSoneclassics?
Well it seems like we need a bit more info from the people in the computer labs actually making the emulator for the Vita. One would assume that they would all be available to play on the Vita just like any other emulator would enable. It’s kind of surprising that just a little bit of inconsistency with your message can make a bit confusion with consumers (and as it would seem, journalists).
Hopefully there’s an official word coming from Sony soon, one would hope that from this video one could assume that all the games would be available and not just a few.
