How do I buy a PSP game for my Vita?

9 replies 136 views Edited Dec 30, 2012

How do I buy a PSP game for my Vita?  Note that I have never owned the game I want to buy.  In addition, this game is not available to buy and download from my PS Vita.  However, when I go to the PlayStation store on my PC, it says that this game is compatible with PS Vita.  So does anyone know how I can buy this game for my Vita?

Some PSP games work on the PS Vita but Sony hasn't updated the Vitas Store to buy or download alot of PSP games. In order to get the PSP games on your Vita you would need to buy it on a PS3 and transfer it to the Vita

In addition to Deaofly's answer: All of the games that appear on the PSN on the Vita are able to be downloaded directly on the Vita. Just open the store and choose "PSP" as a category, and then just browse.

I don't have PS3, and the games I want are not in the store on the Vita, so there's no other way to get them?

Sorry. There is no other way to do it.. Sony is being real slack about ps1 and psp games lately. A lot of people are mad about it.A lot of people are steping back from the vita because of it. A lot are waiting for sony to support it better. I like it but kind of wish they would too.

Don't jump to conclusions now. It only took a few years after they promised to launch the service on the PSP before it was put into full swing and actually happened. I'ma just hold my breath because I'm sure they're get everything taken care of within the next few months.

Just going to hold my breath....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

***Disclaimer, massive sarcasm. It was complete garbage how they handled everything on psp when they announced PSX games would be rolling out. I even upgraded my CFW (Like 2005-2006 here people) to OFW just so I could buy psx games. Within a few months I hacked it back and started compiling them myself to play.

That is what  i am hoping for also. I have been waiting for 10 months now for some that are not on there yet and it is starting to seem like a long time now. they will get there most likely as soon as sony quits playing around with it and gets serious about it. They will have to do something wild and crazy soon to boost things up. That is a lot will come our way.

Thanks so much for the replies.  I'm really sorry to hear that though.  I bought the Vita on the premise that I would be able to buy and play the PSP games.  Everything I read said that I would be able to do that, but obviously I hadn't found this forum.  Smiley Sad

You can still download a bunch of psp games off the store via digital download.

To be fair, it's Sony of America. Sony of Japan has provided PSV users with more than 400 PSX Classics and a wider array of PSP titles to buy off the PSV PSN. While not up to that level, Europe's PSV PSN is also far ahead of America's. It's not Sony as a whole the one lagging, only the branch of America~.
