More PSP/PS1 games on PSN (compatible with Vita)

[ Edited ]

I really would love to see more games appear from the PS1 and PSP that are also playable on the PSVita. I love my Vita, but I'm not that much of a fan of all those indiegames and thus I'd love to see more PSP games appear again.
I loved SSX On Tour and Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's Tag Force 3 for example but they aren't available on PSN...

They are not available due to legal reasons
As they got to get permission to release them available for PS vita

And yet you can transfer them with a PS3; I'm not entirely sure it's about legal reasons. Mind you, I'm not saying it isn't, just that I've my doubts. Also, you still can't browse PSP DLC content on the PSV PSN however a while a go they unlocked said content for download. Meaning that if you buy it through Media Go, when you go to your PSV's download list, the content appears as available to download~.

 

Makes me wonder if the same doesn't apply to the games that aren't on the PSV PSN but that we can transfer with a PS3~.

Did you know that some of the games not on the handheld vita is on sonys handheld tablets and phones. 

So for some that makes three handhelds that have games not on vita.

Makes me kind of think that the legal part is not the problem.

Wonder if they will be avalable on the vita tv. If they are I know it is not a legal problem.

Sony will not give a answer to this question also which makes me think they do not want anyone to know the reasion.

Any answer that is not from them is just a wild guess.
