Playstation Vita Discussion Thread

Can the Vita play PSP download games? I ask because my copy of Uncharted 2 for PS3, I think it was, came with a code for several PSP pinball games. I may eventually end up with a Vita. It's extremely unlikely I'll ever buy a PSP. So I'm wondering if I should keep the things around or just delete them and forget about it.

If by PSP download games you mean the PS Minis, then yes, they're all there in the store.

Delete what? The Psp games? You can if you want to and always redownload them later. Yes the Vita plays downloaded PSP games off PSN, however at this moment it's not 100% compatible. Some games are available off the Vita store, some games need to be purchased on a PS3 then transferred to a Vita, others(not very many) just dont work at all.

*EDIT*

Sale is live. Silent Hill and Fifa 2013 are $24.99 each, tempted to get them.
Which country is that? Because I don't think Canada best buy has the same deal

US, not sure about Canada, sorry.

I ended up getting Smart As and Silent Hill, hope their half decent for the price.

Just tried Book of Memories demo. It's ok. It's what I expected the game to be. Not as bad as what those moronic, stupid SH fanboys claims to be. But I wouldn't spend it above 20 bucks.

I'm gonna just get Golden Abyss and Gravity Rush.

Just wondering what everyone else who owns a Vita feels about Project Shield I know it's not a real product yet but it might just be a real competitor. Killer feature's would have to be the PC game streaming, Micro SD, full Android and of course the Tegra 4.

I'm a bit conflicted now I admit, hopefully it will make Sony up their game it's really about time they did.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

My interest in the Sield is piqued, but it all hinges on the price of the unit itself. If its cheap enough with decent developer backing, it could be pretty good.

Still, love my Vita for what it is and could see myself going to the shield as well.
