It would be awesome. For those trying to explain why they shouldn't or why they won't think about this. Sony is in 3rd place. Why? Because they have put profits before just providing a good service. Valves Steam proves once and for all that if you provide great service the money will come. They sale $60 games for $10. Why? Because you'll end up spending $300 on "good deals". Denying your customers options will NEVER equal success. The Wii plays all Gamecube games, yet people still bought Wii games. If people are using the PS 3 and Vita then Sony wins, END OF STORY. The more great games on the two consoles, the more cool features the better. Sony HAS to stop half assing every single launch and feature. They have to stop promising the moon and delivering a moon pie. Actually, ALL console manufacturers have to get their act together. Steam WILL over take them if they can't get this thing going. My computer is far more powerful then any console on the market and is seven years old. They will have to launch next gen consoles just to catch up with your average users PC. Not to mention the cost of console HDD's, controlers, subscription fee's, and $60 downloadable games. In conclusion, the Vita needs everything it can get. PS 2 games is a good start. If you think Sony can spend lose another console war, then you are sadly mistaken.
tonicmole that is what I have been trying to say also. You get bashed on here for saying the truth about it. All eletronics that I have seen in the years gone by (which is many for me now) that has succeded has only succeded by asking people what do you want. Then they work at making it happen. All that have not are gone or faded to last place. Sony is not doing real great at that right now. There are still problems from launch that are still here. And I am compairing eletronics al the way back to when there was only transister radios with am only.Sony does good with there other equipment. I have several and they have more functions than you can use on them. I would compaire them to anyone elses in quality and performance. But for some reasion they haven't brought this policy over to the vita or there gaming industry in general for several years now. I don't understand how they were #1, they started changing and now there #3.Get the picture. Thry have to listen to people and respond to them. If not there are too many other choices to choose from now. PS2 games. No question about it. It would boost the vita and would sell like crazy. Sell like crazy? That's what they wont don't they? Did you know that a review on the vita about a year before it come out on I think IGN showed a god of war game bubble on the vita they were showing. PS2 games? No problem.
have a 80 GB PS3 that can play PS1 and PS2 discs as well as a brand new Slim PS2 i bought from Walmart today for 50$
I'll just buy PS1 and PS2 games off Amazon and Ebay and not give Sony any more of my money
The PS1 and PS2 days i actually liked some of the stuff coming out on Sony's consoles is long gone
and the fact that Sony of America was run by that **bleep** Bernie Stolar in the late 90s with his anti rpg attitude **bleep**ed up alot by preventing a ton of good rpgs from coming out in NA
If any SMT fans didn't know, He's the one who prevented Atlus from releasing the PS1 version of Soul Hackers over here so many years ago
Sony definately needs to put ps2 games onn the vita, among other things, like maybe letting the entire catalogue of downloadable psp games show up on the vitas psn store, instead of some of them. I remember there being so many more download options on psp before i sold it, and the lack of those options on the vita just seems wrong.
The Wii plays all Gamecube games, yet people still bought Wii games.
Nobody bought Wii games, they bought Wiis, played Wii Sports for 2 months, and then threw them in a box of tangled AV cables next to the TV and forgot about them.
It is hard for me to believe that as long as sony has been doing this and as much as the game companys need games on all consoles right now because of low sells of games that sony would not have enough pull to persuade game companys to put games on psn. I have a filling that they could. It is just not as important to them as it is to us.
