However, with PlayStation Mobile trying to create a new vibe, perhaps having these old games hanging on (and the possibility of them reappearing on a Gaikai-powered service) isn't much of a priority. Of course, Android users probably have enough emulators running for this not to be a problem.
Here's the quote from Sony's press release. "In conjunction with the launch of dedicated content for PlayStation Mobile through PlayStation Store, legendary PlayStation games (PS one® Classics) for PlayStation Certified devices will no longer be offered."
With Vita users raring to go on PS One games (the 1.80 firmware update is just a week away), I've already got memory card space ear-marked for Ridge Racer Type 4 and Vagrant Story, you have to hope Sony will increase the pace of releases in western markets. Or just launch the PSOne, PS2 all-in Gaikai subscription service and be done with it.
