Seems like it, as long as the game was released on PS Store (even delisted ones via download history). Games that doesn't appear on the Vita store can be accessed on the webstore too.

If only SEGA puts back PSP2 on the store ;_;

Have you already bought them? Try checking your download history.

@porkchopxp: They both work on Vita. If you can't download them directly to your Vita from your download list, you could download them to your PS3, then transfer to your Vita.

I believe he's talking about this.

Sony has stealth-activated a load of PSP and PSone classics on PS Vita (as reported by CVG News), allowing you to download and play practically any of the classic content still available on the store on your handheld.

@porkchopxp: I can personally confirm that valkyria chronicles 2 DOES work, I downloaded and ran it last night, along with NCAA 10 and Star Wars battlefront 2.

So, after you purchase a game, you go to your download list on your Vita, and the game shows up there right?

When I use content manager to transfer both games to my Vita, neither game is recognized(they don't show up), thus unplayable for me.

Edit: duh, forgot to use the Vita's account menu, retrieving them both from that download list as I type this, thanks all. . . ooooh, I'm in heaven.

Just an FYI, sony "fixed" whatever allowed people to download all psp/ps1 games to vita via download list, so this is no longer available.

The games downloaded still work, they just can't be redoenloaded or new stuff be added if it's not available on the vita ps store.

I wonder if this move by Sony was purely for the "free games" for PS+ Vita members in the future?
