    SCEA Only uploaded 7% of the Vita PSoneclassics library

    SCEA uploads 7% of the PSoneclassics that Europe does for Vita. Gamers should be pissed. | PSOneClassics


    Sony Computer Entertainment America didnít do their job very well

    This was a huge feature release for the Vita, many early adopters waited patiently for this update to make their PSoneclassics work. The European Playstation blog did an excellent job, but their North American counterparts dropped the ball.

    The amount of games that will be downloadable to the Vita tomorrow is laughable, 9 games will be available in NA territories, and 129 available in Pal regions. Of course there are many games that are transferable via PS3, but these games should be on the store. No exceptions. SCEA even told one of their developers that their games would be playable but they arenít. MonkeyPaw games had to go to Twitter to explain they were surprised by the announcements (at right click to enlarge).

    SCEA had months of planning to get ready for this, but after all that time they managed to ready 9 titles while their European counterparts readied 129. Heads should be rolling as SCEA, releasing 7% of Europeís list is an embarrassment.

    Thatís right, we have 7% of what Europe has.

    So the gamers are stuck doing the work that SCEA should have been doing Ė Testing the firmware for games that work.

    All over the net, there are people posting what games work and what games donít via PS3 transfer with the Vita. NeoGaf, Reddit, Cheap Ass gamer, and the same thing happened with the PSP compatibility with the Vita as well. Games like Metal gear solid Portable Ops, work fine in Europe, but theyíre unavailable in NA. Peacewalker as well doesnít play on a NA vita if you donít have a PS3 to download it from. Gamers should be upset about this, and they should be e-mailing SCEA complaints. I have e-mailed Sony North American Playstation Blog for a reason for the discrepancy, as soon as I hear back I will update this post.

    American's complain when they are on short end of something. Us in Europe always get a short end usually and it pisses me off that the american store is so much better than the Europe one, they should both be the same. Also american store is always updated before ours. Same with new releases.

    Wow, I had no idea that this was happening. But that's inexcusable for SCEA to put in such a poor show compared to SCEE

    Before anything, There are like 30 new articles on how the Vita has PS1 support now in the last hour alone. And you PS360 choose the one article that says anything negative about and that is only because this guy hasn't done any real research. You must have literally spent hours trying to find this.

    Main point of this. I read through this article (Not just the stuff in bold)
    1) This is based on the official list. Of which the europe has 129 confirmed and US has 9. Not how many are actually available to be played
    2) This percent is comparing the the US to EU. Not how many actually work. 7% of 129 is 9(.03)
    3) The US titles list is only showing games which can be downloaded straight off the vita. The EU list shows any game which works on the vita, of whichall but 120 of the 129 have to be copied from a PS3 or PC. The remaining 9 can be put on the vita via this method or downloaded directly onto the Vita from the store, Guess which games those 9 games are that the Vita can download in Europe (In case you can't see where this is going, the same as the 9 games the US lists)

    The US list is laziness on the US playstations behalf fair be it. But any little bit of research will tell you that the extra 120 games do work in the US.

    So yeah, this article is written to make the vita look bad. They are saying the Vita lacks the ability to work with particular titles, when it does work with them. They even find out that other games work but they manipulate what they say to make it sound as if they didn't.
    Peacewalker as well doesn’t play on a NA vita if you don’t have a PS3 to download it from.
    They even try to make the company look bad by posting stuff like this:
    So the gamers are stuck doing the work that SCEA should have been doing – Testing the firmware for games that work.
    As if they don't know what is in their own update. Maybe these extra games just somehow got into the update by those magical pixies that work in Sonys products during the night?

    Why is it whenever Sony does anything people are asking for it suddenly isn't good enough for people once it comes out?

    Because for me it's stuff that should've been there from the start

    It's like the first versions of the PSN, sure they're improved on it massively, but a lot of that stuff really should've been there from the start for me

    Yeah but it has been public knowledge for the whole day that you can easily get the games off of your ps3.

    Also you get your news off of Reddit? That is really really sad.

    Well that explains a lot about what you post. It is good to know that any credibility you claim to have has gone right out the window.

    Let me guess you other sites are 4chan and Wikipedia?

    What is worse is the fact that none of the PS1 classics don't have trophies. If I already own the game for the PS1, and its free to just get it for an emulator, why bother playing it on my PS3 if there are no trophies?

    To me, 0% or 100% makes no difference to me for what the US store has compared to the Europe store, when there is no incentive to re-buy something I already have.

    You mean none of the PS1 classics have trophies.
    Why bother playing if there even ARE trophies?

    I'm not sure why this is such a big deal. I have a few PSOne games on my PS3 from the plus program and they transferred over and played just fine. So there not all available for direct download, it's an additional thirty seconds for the transfer.

    so what if the family is poor, got the vita as a gift for their son/daughter on their birthday, and is unable to buy a ps3 due to money issues?
