Earlier this week, Sony released software update v1.80 for the PlayStation Vita. Along with a number of mechanical tweaks, the update included the much requested inclusion of PlayStation One game support. While there is a workaround to get most of your digital PSX games working, the official release only included a measly nine titles. That number has been upped in just a matter of days, however, as another 26 titles have officially been added to the list.
When only nine games were included in the launch for PSX backwards compatibility this past Tuesday, PlayStation Vita gamers were a bit miffed, to say the least. Sony reps were quick to state that more games would be rolled out regularly, though it’s a pretty safe bet that nobody was expecting “regularly” to mean “we’re tripling that number in just two days.”
The original list included the following titles: Arc the Lad, Cool Boarders 2, Final Fantasy VII, Hot Shots Golf 2, Jet Moto, Syphon Filter, Tomb Raider, Twisted Metal 2 and Wild Arms.
SCEA Digital Platforms Community Manager Morgan Haro recently posted on the PlayStation forums, announcing a boatload of additional titles.
“This isn’t the end though, we’re doing our best to get even more PS One titles on PS Vita as quickly as possible,” Haro added. “As a reminder, if you’ve already purchased any of these titles you’ll be able to re-download them directly from your PS Store account or transfer them to your PS Vita from your PS3 at no extra charge.”
And, according to the title of the post, even more titles are “coming soon.” So, maybe in two days? There’s no telling, really. But at least these newest additions should keep you busy for a little while.
Here’s the new list:
Arc the Lad II
Hi Octane: The Track Fights Back
Klonoa: Door to Phantomile
Medal of Honor
Medal of Honor: Underground
Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
Oddworld: Abe’s Exodus
Populous- The Beginning
R4 Ridge Racer Type 4
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six
Wing Commander IV
