Buy PsP games on PSN and play on PS3?

6 replies 231 views Edited Oct 10, 2012

If I purchase PsP games on the PSN can I play them on the PS3 or can you only play them on the PsP?  While I'm asking what about the Vita?  If I purchase a Vita game on the PSN can I play it on the PS3?

You will not be able to play those psp games on the ps3.

You could buy them through the ps3; then transfer it to the psp or if the vita supports that game; you can buy it through the vita or buy it from the ps3 and transfer it.

PSP titles can't be played on the PS3. I believe some PSP titles are supported on the Vita. You can get a few cross-buy titles that give you a copy of the game for both PS3 and Vita.

Here they are:

Sounds Shapes
Wipeout HD + Wipeout 2048 Bundle
Foosball 2012
Hustle Kings
StarDrone
Zen Pinball 2
MLB The Show 12
Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time (Upcoming title)
Playstation Allstars Battle Royale (Upcoming title)
Ratchet and Clank: Full Frontal Assualt (Upcoming Title)

These are titles you can play on your PS3 and Vita with one purchase of the game, either through PSN or getting a Retail Disc copy of the game that includes a download for the Vita version.

This is a damned shame.  They should fix this so I can..  Not really seeing the problem with me playing PSP and/or Vita games on the PS3.  They still getting my monies and I get to play the games I purchase how I want.  Win Win Sony!

But they'd lose hardware sales. Which is terrible in the long run.

PSP games look like crap on a small screen, upscale that to fit a 40" screen and it would look like you're playing a game made 10 years before Pong.

If the loss of hardware sales would be an issue then just verify that you own a PSP and/or Vita then they can allow the download. Fixed.
