Sony Drops Support for PS1/PSP Games Recently Made Available on Vita

Sony Drops Support for PS1/PSP Games Recently Made Available on Vita 1

Earlier this week after the Playstation Network Store went under maintenance, North American Vita owners were surprised when they found out that they could then purchase almost every PSP and PS1 game unavailable to them.

Now the support for these titles seem to be dropped.

Multiple sources have confirmed that the same titles that have been locked out of the North American Vita PSN store  such as Metal Gear Solid, Crash Bandicoot, and Spyro The Dragon have been locked again.

It is unclear why Sony suddenly allowed these games to be downloaded, and then stopped it a few days later.

The idea that it was a mistake caused by the maintenance seems likely, seeing as though Sony remained silent after the titles were available. It is also still unclear why Sony won’t allow these titles to be purchased.

Before this, a group of gamers on Neogaf found a way to bypass this by downloading the games from a PlayStation3 to a Playstation Vita, and tested out which games actually work this way.

Customers who purchased and downloaded any of the titles to their Vita will still continue to be able to play them, but everyone else seems to be out of luck.

Ironically Shuhei Yoshida, the President of Worldwide Studios for Sony Computer Entertainment didn’t seem to mind customers obtaining these games.
