I was checking today and noticed Spyro and Crash games were not in the ps one Classic section. I heard they are in other Regions. Is it because a legal issue of some sort with Activision? I would love to play these games again, i guess i will just have to buy a Ps1. Both great titles for the Ps1 and Spyro is my favorite.

If you have a PS3 you can still download those onto the Vita using the usb cable. Not sure why they aren't on the Vita store but they're definitely playable on it.

you may be able to long into psn on your computer and download those games. what country do you live in? and i don't think Activision owns the licence to the first 3 Spyro games and the first 4 or so Crash games

I'm in Australia, and all Crash Bandicoot and Spyro PSOne Classics are downloadable directly from the store on Vita.

If you have a PS3, you should be able to buy them from your country's store, download them to your PS3, then use the Vita's content manager to transfer them over.

Alternatively, original disc versions of these games will play on any PS3, PS2, or PS1 just fine.

If you don't have a PS3; don't buy a PS1 - buy a PS3.
