While the PlayStation Vita has a nice selection of games to choose from, it is missing a lot of games that made the original PlayStation so popular in the first place. Well, if you’re one of those people who refuse to let go of the past, you’re in luck. It has been reported that an upcoming firmware update for the PlayStation Vita will let you enjoy the classic games of the original PlayStation – on Sony’s latest portable console.
The Vita 1.80 firmware update is said to add the ability to play classic PSOne titles, with over 700 titles to choose from. No word on what games will be released at launch, but a lot of gamers are probably keeping their fingers crossed for Final Fantasy VII to arrive sooner than later.
In addition to the Vita update, a new update that’s on the way for the PlayStation 3 is said to bring support for PlayStation 2 games – bringing back the backwards compatibility feature that was present in earlier versions of the console. The updates are slated to arrive in Japan this week – no word on when the rest of the world will have access to them, but let’s hope it won’t be too long.
