    Question for Vita owners with digital PSP games.

    So I had a PSPGO which everyone hated but I loved since once it was hacked, I had 16 gb of hard drive space without having to buy a memory stick. Anyway to my question. I bought a few games off the store as well and I was just wondering if these digital games can just be downloaded off the store and played on a Vita once I get one? Thank you all for your help.

    Some of them do but not all of them, there's places where you can find a list.

    As the other guy said, Sony has published a list of PSP games compatible with the Vita, but apparently there are others that are not on the list, but that work.

    Since what you're talking about is the games you already bought, there's no risk involved in just trying. Go to the store, then to the download list, and download the games to your Vita.

    I don't have a Vita yet. This was one of my deciding factors of getting one or not

    As far as I know all download PSP games work as long as you go through your download list to find them (since the vita store still doesn't show all PSP games yet).
    However if you got the free PSPGO games when that offer was on you will find some of those games won't work since they only work on the PSPGO

    Just remember to set up your Vita (if and when you get one) with the same PSN account that you bought the PSP games with. Even though it is possible to run multiple accounts on your Vita (reset to factory settings required to change accounts), the Vita will only allow you to play games purchased with the same account you log in with.

    Here is all of the titles available from PSP to Vita (if you don't want to go to my link) They said on the blog that they were going to update it and get more and more as time goes by.

    I have noticed one of my digital psp games don't work but it's on the list. I downloaded DJ Max portable 3 and when I try to transfer it to my Vita from my PS3 it doesn't show up in the list of media I can transfer over yet it says that it works on the Vita. Plus Rockband Unplugged works on the Vita but it's not on the list. Also does it really make any sence Patapon 2 works but not 3?

    You can add Capcom Classics Collection Reloaded/Remixed and Gottlieb Pinball Classics to that list.

    Easiest way to find out is to go into your download list at the PStore and whatever is available will be downloadable.

    OR

    If all your psp games are already on your PS3, then whatever can be transferred will be in the content manager window when you link up.

    So easy...forget about all the cross referencing and lists.
