PS store in HK has a list of PSP games that can be played on Vita. The list doesn't cover all games, and many good PSOne classics are missed out. Wanted to make sure I can play those games before buying a Vita.

It depends. The Vita can play some PSP games not on the PS Vita PS store if you transfer them from a PS3 to the Vita.

I haven't bought a Vita yet, is there a PS Vita store on PSN? It appears all PSN games are for PS3 or PSP, but nothing for PS Vita. Can I download PSP games directly to Vita? After downloading, can I play it on Vita? I wouldn't want to pay for a game that can't be played on a Vita. Most importantly, if many good PSP games can't be played on Vita, then I need to rethink whether to buy a Vita at all, as there aren't many good Vita games yet... thanks.

There is a PS store on the Vita and anything on that store will work on the Vita. You would download the games directly to the device. There are some games that are not available on the Vita store that can be played on the Vita though. There is probably a list somewhere on the internet. You'd have to look.
