PS Vita Firmware V1.80 Is Live. FINALLY, PSOne Classic Support!

It’s time to blow the dust from that unpocketable portable device because this new update brings sweet new features like the ability to navigate the home menu with buttons instead of getting all touchy-swipey, and the web browser gets a little more Safari iOS-ish with a search bar in the browser menu and giving you the ability to jump to the top of a page.

Here’s a video rundown of all the new features.


But we know what you really care about: PSOne Classic support! Here’s a list of the first batch of games that you can download as soon as the PSN store updates later today/tonight.

  • Arc the Lad
  • Cool Boarders 2
  • Hot Shots Golf 2
  • Jet Moto
  • Syphon Filter
  • Tomb Raider
  • Twisted Metal 2
  • Wild Arms

Yeah, it kind of sucks that they’ll be rolling out small handfuls of games on a weekly basis instead of giving us access to the massive library already available on PSN, but at least FFVII’s in there, so we doubt there’ll be too many complaints.

Which PSOne games are you looking forward to playing on your Vita?
