PSOne compatibility hits PSVita on August 28


At their press conference at GamesCom this morning, Sony announced that the long awaited PSOne compatibility for the PlayStation Vita will start rolling out from August 28.

Unfortunately, not all games will work out of the gate – it sounds like Sony will be rolling compatibility out slowly, with Tomb Raider and Final Fantasy VII mentioned as being among the first wave of titles.

Probably not the most delicate way of handling it, but I guess we should be happy that Sony is giving the ailing handheld some attention.

The Legend of Dragoon coming to PSN

Shu Yoshida, President of SCE Worldwide Studios, has today announced that the much-loved RPG The Legend of Dragoon will be available May 1 as a PSone Classic on the US PlayStation Store.

The Legend of Dragoon was developed and published by Sony Computer Entertainment, and released in 2000 for North America and 2001 for Europe.

This turn-based RPG sees players take the role of Dart, the spiky-haired protagonist, as he embarks on a heroic journey to save his childhood friend and protect the world. The title has nine playable characters and eight Dragoon Spirits which transform characters into a more powerful form – a Dragoon.

PSX Platinum Games Guide updated

As those with keen eyes might have noticed, I’ve been sidetracked lately with tarting up the site to make it look the slightest bit appealing. Unfortunately when I get wrapped up in one project, the others all get ignored.

I spurred into action today to deliver a vital update to the PSX Platinum Games List. The new version contains more correct release date information, along with corrections on the status of a couple of titles. If you notice any omissions or errors, please contact me.

PSX Platinum Games Guide

As a bit of a side project over the last week, I decided to make a list of all Platinum releases on the original PlayStation since the one on Wikipedia was rather inaccurate. This should prove helpful to those of you who want to avoid having those dreaded silver releases and keep your collections original and pretty. Inversely, if you are compelled to collect all of the Platinum titles (surely one of you is), then this list should help you on your way.

I’m currently working on an equivalent guide for the PlayStation 2, as well as a major update to the list of games that support 60Hz. Those will be posted up here in the coming days.
