Vita’s New Firmware offers more PS1 support

With the Launch of the new 1.8 firmware your Vita has become capable of running a small handful of PlayStation one games. Luckily you won’t have to wait for your favorite title to become available on the Vita store. There is a workaround that will allow you to access more PSOne games on your shiny Vita, and the process is simple and only requires that you do not install the game on your PS3. Simply download the title you would like to transfer to your Vita via the PlayStation Store. When I say don’t install it I mean simply leave it in its “bubble” form on the PlayStation 3. Now, connect your Vita to your PS3 and run content manager. Choose to Transfer from PS3 to Vita and chose PlayStation One. That’s it. You now have a bigger list of games to play blowing away the small eight Sony listed.

Full list below of what is compatible thanks to users at NEOGAF, after the break.
