Only the folks at the PSN Blog/Store know the answer to that. But if you can't wait you can set up a UK PSN account and with a spare memory card, or formatting the one you currently have; buying a UK PSN card online, you could play it within the hour or so.

Re: 131 PSOne Classics on Vita so far... (US 02/12)

So, who wants some useless PSOne Classics info? I have oodles of it!

 

To honor the Vita's 1st anniversary (a bit late :/), I did some simple research regarding the Classics and compiled a list of the transfer-only and incompatible ones at the moment. Figured it would make some nice info. Sorry if it's a bit redundant, but I haven't seen an up to date list regarding this matter (barring games on the store)

 

Some simple statistics to get started:

 

198 Psone Classics overall

131 compatible

28 Transfer-Only

22 incompatible

9 untested

8 removed

 

Taking what's known from here and  here, I managed to do four lists of everything that's not available immediately on the store:

 

"Removed games"

This, of course, refers to the Classics already removed from the PSN. As of today, there are eight removed games, which are:

 

Arcade Hits: Magical Drop

Arcade Hits: Outlaws of the Lost Dynasty

Jet Moto 3

Kyuiin

Magical Drop F

R-Type Delta

R-Types

Yakiniku Bugyou

 

The American games wont work due to the fact that they aren't supported anymore. And the imports wont work either due to it being "Sony's online structue's fault":

"Transfer only games"

This refers to the games that need to be downloaded onto the PS3 (and leaving them uninstalled) before they can be transferred to the Vita. These are:

 

Arcade Hits: Shienryu

Arcade Hits: Sonic Wings Special

Art Camion Sugorokuden

Blockids

Burst Angel

Castlevania Chronicles

Cho Aniki

Cool Boarders

Dezaemon Plus!

Dezaemon Kids!

Finger Flashing

GaiaSeed

Galaxy Fight

International Track & Field

Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver

Legend of Dragoon

Lup*Salad

Makeruna Makendo 2

Metal Gear Solid

Money Idol Exchanger

Pandemonium!

Persona 2: Eternal Punishment

Rapid Angel

Silent Hill

Suikoden

Tall Unlimited

Um Jammer Lammy

Zanac X Zanac

 

In a nutshell, this list is made by imports, the Konami games and some Sony and Eidos omissions.

 

"Incompatible games"

The most painful to watch for sure. This one is comprised by games not available from the Vita OR transferable by use of the PS3, rendering them unplayable on Vita

 

Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare

Arc The Lad III

Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain

Bloody Roar

Bloody Roar 2

Command & Conquer

Crash Bandicoot

Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back

Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped

CTR: Crash Team Racing

Final Fantasy V

Future Cop: L.A.P.D.

Motor Toon Grand Prix (confirmed by me)

Myst

Pocket Fighter

Sim Theme Park (confirmed by CAG thread in comments)

Spyro the Dragon

Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage

Spyro: Year of the Dragon

Star Wars Dark Forces

Vehicle Cavalier

 

"Untested"

This is self explanatory. Games that have yet to be tested to see if they can be played on Vita (omitted untested removed games, see above).

 

Arc Arena: Monster Tournament

Bomberman Fantasy Race

Bomberman Party Edition

Command & Conquer: Red Alert

Command & Conquer: Red Alert Retaliation

Delta Force Urban Warfare

Ford Racing

Sno-Cross Championship Racing

Turnabout

 

A relatively short list considering how long the games have been enabled, but its still weird to see no love for some of these games. I can see why tough.

 

With some common sense, this list can be made shorter. The Bomberman games were published by Hudson, whose Bloddy Roar games are incompatible. The first C&C isn't compatible, so why it's sequels would be? And Delta Force is "PS3 Only" So... That leaves us with just:

 

Arc Arena: Monster Tournament 

Ford Racing

Sno-Cross Championship Racing

Turnabout

 

I could be wrong, though, so if you happen to own these Classics (or any of the removed imports) please post their compatibility state for completion's sake.

 

So there you have it. This might have a sloppy feel to it, but I made it at 2AM and have some works overdue but w/e  I made it for my love of the Classics with the hopes of seeing the entire Classics library compatible with Vita someday (and more additions too!)

Please point out any mistake I might have for quick correction or deletion. Sorry to hijack this thread, writer, but I wanted to get this off my brain :V

How often does SONY usually update the ps1 list? Is it weekly on Tuesday like video releases, or monthly?
