It's even sadder for older gamers like me because the Liverpool studio was formerly known as Psygnosis, I'm quite sure the other grandpas in here will instantly recognise that name
I remember Psygnosis, loved them when I had my C64/Amiga. Lemmings, Shadow of the Beast and Barbarian were some of the games I loved most. I remember them and Bitmap Brothers most when I has a young teen.
Anyways, for those not familiar with Psygnosis, check out what games they created:
I read somewhere that the majority of employees are being absorbed into other Sony studios, and that the studio itself would still get used- just not for making games. Hopefully they still make WipEout games- if not, I'm okay with it. The series had a long run. At least they're keeping most of the talent though... Still saddened by this news.
Though it will be interesting to be able to play FF7, all of these features should have shipped with the system day one. Ultra basic things such as the PS3 displaying Vita status and trophies are still left out. Maybe with the PS4 launch...
Game Center / PSN ID = Misantropus
Apparently, there is a lot more PS1 games compatible with the Vita in NA- they just aren't on PSN. You can do the PS3 transfer trick that was used to get unavailable PSP games on the Vita. List of titles confirmed to be working so far:
Arc the Lad
Arcade Hits: Shienryu
Arcade Hits: Sonic Wings Special
Cool Boarders 2
Cyberbots: Fullmetal Madness
Final Fantasy IV
Final Fantasy VI
Final Fantasy VII
Final Fantasy VIII
Final Fantasy IX
Hot Shots Golf 2
International Track and Field
Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver
Legend of Dragoon
Mega Man 2
Mega Man 3

That would have to come with a PS3 update, and they might have to update/reconfigure their servers too.
EDIT: So I updated, and WHAT THE FRICK they changed the backgrounds too. I liked my old one . The colors were much cooler looking.
EDIT 2: They added/changed quite a bit I didn't know about. Much bigger update than I though it was.
