Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, you may have noticed the number of stories slowing down here. Time moves on, but I'll always keep posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age.
Since I don't have the time or content for a Patreon or YT channel, please consider clicking an ad to help reach my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

How you'll play PSP games on the Vita

Having just announced how to get UMD games over the to Vita, Sony has also explained how you'll copy over save games and actually enjoy your PSP titles on the Vita (looks like I'm buying a 32MB card then!) The first bit of good news is that to get save game data over, you copy it via a PC (via a little program you'll need to install called Content Assistant) or PS3 to the Vita, so you won't have to start the game again.

Then when you've got your game and saved data over, there will be a LiveArea menu for PSP games on the Vita. Here you can choose to enable bilinear filtering for a better looking game, set up the right-stick for proper dual-stick gaming and then go play your game.

So, yes, you'll need to pay again for your UMD titles, buy that's a choice you make, you can always keep playing them on the PSP. Hopefully the discount will be a decent one. But it looks the PS Vita will happily keep the PSP legacy running.
