How to Download PSP Titles to PS Vita

PSP Gaming on PS Vita

PS Vita will begin making its way into gamers’ hands in just a few short days! Day one Vita owners will have many, many games to choose from, with 25 titles announced for launch on February 22nd. Actually, make that 26 — Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus is now a confirmed launch title as well.

If you’re being thorough, however, that number is off by a bit… like by 90%. Hundreds of classic PSP titles and minis will also be available to play on PS Vita on day one via the PlayStation Store. Even better, if you’ve already downloaded a compatible PSP title, you can download it directly onto your PS Vita at no extra cost (please note that some limitations do apply).

There are a couple of ways to get these PSP games onto your PS Vita:

  • Purchase PSP games from PS Vita’s PlayStation Store and download via WiFi directly to your system. If you’ve already purchased a game via PSN from the list below, you can redownload it from the Download List.

  • If you’ve already got one of these games sitting on your PS3 XMB (or have purchased from the PS3’s PlayStation Store), you can connect your PS Vita to the PS3 via the included USB cable, and transfer the game via PS Vita’s on-board Content Manager.

Here are the first 275 PSP titles ready to be downloaded onto PS Vita. Don’t worry if you don’t see your favorite title here now; more PSP titles will be made available for PS Vita play in the coming weeks. We’ll keep this list current and let you know when updates are made.

  • Crisis Core + Kindgom Hearts plz.

  • Grand Theft Auto Vice City Stories & China Town Wars! D:

  • i want Patapon 3 to be Vita ready!!! i was looking forward to playing it on the vita but it’s not ready yet :(

    will games become vita ready in big waves? what i mean is, a bunch becoming vita ready at a time? or what

  • Please put kingdom hearts birth by sleep on psn quick!

  • I was able to move my digital Gran Turismo PSP game to the PSVITA and it isn’t on the list. Just an FYI for others who are curious

  • Add WTF: Work Time Fun please. That game was insane.

  • Probably been said, but I thought it was funny that most of the most wanted games (LBP, Modnation, MGS:PW) have vita versions out or coming soon. Thinking that these games will hit after those versions have had a bit of time on the market.

  • I don’t know if it has been mentioned yet, but Patapon 1 & 3 are not on the list. I guess I can understand on having Patapon 1 on there, but Patapon 3 definitely should be! Just pointing that out!

  • KH: Birth by Sleep as well as both of the Star Ocean games ASAP. Please and Thank You.

  • yea i agree, patapon 3 is the best one imo by a LONG shot

  • I’ve redownloaded a bunch of minis I had on the list but when I use content manager nothing showed up. None of them are installed on ps3 just downloaded. This sucks any help?

  • Hoping like heck that NFS Carbon, Tron Evolution, Marvel Ultimate Alliance and Star Wars Battlefront Elite Squadron join this list soon.

  • Okay, you guys are going to love this. I downloaded Star Wars Battlefront II to my Playstation 3 and then with the cable installed it to my PSP AND IT WORKS! It’s not one of the games that’s on list.
    then do what ParkingtigersX posted here:
    ” Also, the first thing everyone should do when playing PSP games on a Vita is touch and hold the screen to bring up the customisation menu. You will want to turn on bilinear filtering. It is off by default, but turn it on and it makes the graphics of the PSP games look much better. Without it, they are a grainy and blurry mess, but flip that option on and they are really nice looking and only have a slight softness to the picture. Just trust me on this, you’ll thank me later.”
    Also on this menu is a way to adjust the right joystick for PSP GAMES.
    I wonder how many other games that aren’t listed can be downloaded per the PS3 that aren’t available on the Vita PSN STORE that work?

  • def jam fight for ney york the takeover
    please dont forget to add it :)

  • I can’t seem to get Age of Zombies to copy to my Vita. I tried Content Manager through my PS3, PSN store on my Vita and even my downloads list on the Store. Please remedy this bc i am dying to play using the dual analog. Thanks

  • So…Sony has already screwed over their fan base by not giving us access to the UMD transfer program. Now there are games that I bought digitally over PSN that I can’t put on the Vita? Are you serious? Is this an early April Fool’s foke?

  • Dear sony, how about releasing five emulated PSP games every day instead of 275 games in god knows how long? Cheers.

  • crisis core? please

  • I see some titles here and in the PSVita section of the PS3 store that can’t be copied to my PSVita!

    One example is Age of Zombies, it’s not even available in the PSVita store.

    Could anyone tell me how you did to copy these games??

  • i really wanna play my psp games on my vita

  • @jncasanova same here man I cant download Age of Zombies minis …. and the vita cant even see ANY of the minis on my PS3 to copy them to the Vita …. looks like they need to update the Vita

  • Sadly (for me anyway) I recently bought the digital version of Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection in anticipation of playing it on Vita.

    It is on my PS3 XMB but it will not copy to Vita. I have also tried to redownload it on the Vita itself. No dice.

    What a pity that the supported games (according to the list provided) actually don’t work at all.


  • there are a bunch of minis on the list that dont work age of zombies, i must run, lets golf, vempire.

    and alot not on the list that do work
    little big planet
    madden 2010
    wwe 2009
    unbound saga
    capcom classics
    bejewelled 2
    every day shooter
    super stardust portable
    king of pool
    puzzle quest
    savage moon
    final fantasy crystal defenders
    these all work by downloading them to your ps3 and keeping them in bubble form then plugging in your ps vita into ur ps3 and transferring them via content manager.

    PLEASE add your games that work that are not on the list and any on the list that dont work aswell!!!

  • killzone liberation works

  • I know that they will update this list with games currently on the psn. However I sure would like Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep to be added to psn and made vita compatible.

  • In germany no Assasains Creed Bloodlines
    and no Monster hunter freedom unite camey to the release how it is in other lands?

  • I was able to copy and play:

    Little Big Planet PSP (even with add ons)
    Assassins Creed Bloodlines
    Star Wars Clone Wars Republic Heroes
    LocoRoco Midnight Carnival

    I think maybe they didn’t write Little Big Planet PSP and Super Stardust PSP because there are newer versions comming.

    Hope my Tetris and Angry Birds minis work on my Vita soon but I guess there will have to be a Firmware Update for that.

  • what about dragonball z tenkaichi tag team and shin budokai another road and naruto games come on their so fun i need those games

  • when will patapon 3 be available?

  • yea why did they make patapon 2 compatible but not 3 -_-

    3 is so much better, awesome game

  • I’m not sure why, but a lot of the minis on this list are not showing up in the store on my vita itself. However, I do see them in the ps3s store under the vita section.

    I also have LittleBigPlanet PSP showing up in my PS3 to Vita transfer management for anyone wanting to try that one out on the Vita.

  • I noticed Age of Zombies is on the list but I can’t get it on Vita’s Store. Is it still possible to get it from the PS3? And why are certain titles highlighted?

  • @334 I just tried Age of Zombies and about 20 others showing up in the PS3 store under the Vita section, and none of them will show up in the content management app. Only the Minis in the store on the Vita itself seem to be available.

    I’m glad I noticed this too, because I was going to buy several I saw on the PS3’s Vita section to have a few extra things to play on the Vita.

  • Anyone know if the PSP Sega Genesis collection works? Thanks in advance I’m getting My Vita on the 29th so i cant check myself

  • For the record, I tried to copy Final Fantasy IV to the Vita from my PS3 again last night and this time it worked!!! It is now on Vita and working flawlessly!

    I also tried to copy Valkyria Chronicles 2 across and it failed on the first attempt. I tried a second time and it worked fine.

    Looks like the copy mechanism is a little wonky, but it does work with some persistance.

    Anyway – I (mostly) take back my snarky comment of yesterday.

    Hugs n kisses Sony :)

  • The best games aren’t available for vita yet, like Crisis Core, or any of the resistance or killzone titles for psp. The 2 GOW games are available but i already have the collection for PS3, so i have no interest.

  • I know a couple more games that are not on this list that will play on the vita. Grand Theft Auto Vice City Stories, Kill Zone Liberation, Pinball Hereos, Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker

  • I know a couple more games that are not on this list that will play on the vita. Grand Theft Auto Vice City Stories, Kill Zone Liberation, Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker,and Pinball Heroes

  • I didn’t know killzone liberation would work, i should be able to “redownload at no extra cost” then.

  • gta liberty city stories works and all you need is a ps3

  • I Must Run! mini does not show up on PSN nor in the Content Manager to download to Vita. And yes, I have re-downloaded it on my PS3 as well.

  • They really really need to make all psp titles compatible. I have only ever purchased 2 psp titles from PSN:
    Mortal Kombat Unchained
    Manhunt 2

    Neither of these titles are compatible…..come on sony…

  • This sucks ass!! Should’ve come here before I spent hours in front of my PC trying to transfer my PSP games to my Vita! This is so stupid! Something like this should be very easy especially if you have Media Go and a valid PSN account!! I also discovered that I can’t transfer most of my music to my Vita as well (no, I don’t own any pirated downloads!!)! even though they are all either CD copies or iTunes! Why? I have the Content Asst activated but my Media Go is not recognizing my Vita?!

  • please say that Silent Hill: Origins will be one of the psp titles that will be playable on Vita

  • @346 I can confirm that silent hill origin is indeed compatible

    @345 the reason it won’t let you copy from itunes is because music from itunes has drm added to it. If it’s just a regular mp3 that you’ve copied from a cd than it shouldn’t have any problem copying to you vita.

  • Is there any news as to whether patapon 3 is going to be able to be played on the vita, and if so if it will be within the near future, because they already have patapon 2 and i would really like to have number 3 as well!

  • is it possible that this list only applies for US games / PSN accounts?

    I downloaded Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow on the PS3 (vita does not allow me) but cannot see it in the content manager.
    On the contrary I got Resistance downloaded via the Vita. Also Tron could be copied via PS3.

  • To add to my earlier comment and while waiting for an official sony reply a quick question for those that got Killzone working:
    Are you guys talking about the EU or US version?

    Maybe we should all state which territory we are from. In my case i got to run the Germany/Europe-versions of
    – Resistance
    – Tron (only via PS3)
    – NOVA
    – Warhammer 40k
    – Force Unleashed
    – Obscure
    – Worms Battle Islands

    I could not get to run (not downloadable via vita / not seen in content manager):
    – Star Wars Battlefront Renegade Squadron
    – Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow
