Is anyone actually excited for ps 1 games for the vita? I'm 27 and grew up playing all the classics but compared to today's games..they look kinda naff lol. Metal gear solid was great back in the day but i can't bring myself to buy that now...I need NEW ps vita quality games..
That's surely what the vita is about..

Or is that just me?
How do I add a picture here??

Re: PSOne Classics...really?

i love playing some of the PS1 titles, i just played through all the Crash Bandicoots and Crash Team Racing, and would love to have them on my Vita.

I understand some people may not want them, but wheres the harm in having more choice?

I still think Final Fantasy 7 & 8 are the best games ever to be made, hands down. There are loads of games I would still play when this feature finally arrives.

You're not on your own there buddy :smileywink:

 

Personally I'm not that bothered about PS1 compatibility. It does seem to be a feature that loads of people want so if it helps Vita sales and gives Vita owners more reason to use the device then I suppose it's all good.

 

I have to add when I was younger my brother and I were constantly playing GT2 on the PS1 and the other day I got my old dusty PS1 out of the cupboard and stuck GT2 on to see how I felt about it. My conclusion I came to was not what I wanted. I just felt no passion towards it. Not like I used to anyway :smileysad:

 

I would much rather see loads of new games coming through but lots of people like playing old classics and retro games. It's a good feature to add to the Vita's arsenal but not one I can see myself using too much if I'm totally honest.

 

I have a few PS1 classics on my PS3 via the PS+ sub and I have played a few of them but found about 5 minutes was all I could take. I used to love Destruction Derby but when I played it on my PS3 I found it to be a very underwhelming experience compared to my brilliant memories of playing the game all those many moons ago. 

 

Real shame because I want to love them like I used to but I just can't :smileysad:

 

I'm sure loads of people still get that same rush they used to get when they first played them but unfortunately I am just not one of those people, however much I try.

Ahh those memories of my Commodore C16 and how the cassette covers promised amazing graphics and adventures! Turns out the graphics were no more than differently coulured sprites making silly noises.

 

And you know what? It was amazing! But that was then. They can never compare to todays games.

 

One thing i can consider, is that older gamer will look better on a 5" screen compared to a 50" screen, so thats a benefit.

 

Bring me Tenchu 1 and 2 please Sony!!

Can't complain that we get more games. There are some RPGs that I would love to play but I rather have PS Vita exclusives.

Would rather they work on NEW games and use the time there instead of wasting it on ports.

New games are coming.

 

Sony have a seperate tech team working on ps1 emulator  so it is not effecting Vita games being made
