Over 100 PSone classics playable on Vita next week

Including Final Fantasy VII, Metal Gear Solid and Resident Evil 2

Sony has said that over 100 PSone games will be available to download and play on Vita next week.


The PlayStation Store is already brimming with PlayStation titles of yesteryear including Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil and numerous Final Fantasy games. Although it didn't mention any specifics, we expect Sony is planning to add new classics periodically.

"Looking to downloadable products, Jim Ryan revealed that from August 28th, over 100 PS One classics including Final Fantasy VII, Metal Gear Solid, and Resident Evil 2 will be available to download for PS Vita," reads a press release.

The much-requested PSone support for Vita was revealed during Sony's GamesCom conference earlier this month.

The functionality will arrive with Vita firmware 1.80 on August 28. The update will also enable the Wii U-like Cross Controller mode, which allows players to control compatible PS3 titles with Vita, as well as music playlists, rear touch pad support for the web browser, and additional home screen button controls.
