Backwards Compatible PlayStation Portable Games To Get Improved Controls On PlayStation Vita

Posted by Sammy Barker

Sony Worldwide Studios president, Shuhei Yoshida, has confirmed that the platform holder is aiming to make a "high" number of PlayStation Portable games compatible with the PlayStation Vita

The executive stressed that the company can't yet "confirm 100 percent compatibility" as the system is still undergoing testing.

That said, those titles that do work will benefit from the advanced features of the PlayStation Vita. "Because PS Vita has a much larger, nicer-looking screen, and the existence of dual analog sticks, we will provide from a system level that some games benefit using the right analog stick," Shuhei explained.

"Like FPS or third-person action-adventure games. We will provide options to remap the control from either face buttons or the action buttons to right analog stick. So the control would be much better on PS Vita."

With the remapped controls operating at the system level, we suspect a lot of legacy PSP titles are about to get a whole lot more playable.
