A Japanese FAQ Has Cast Doubt Over Whether Downloadable PSone Games Will Work On The Vita.

The PSP can play PSone games. The PS3 can play PSone games. Why wouldn't the PlayStation Vita? But in a Japanese FAQ uploaded onto the official PlayStation website this afternoon, Sony has cast doubt over legacy game support.

The FAQ mentions that the PlayStation Vita will be able to play all downloadable PSP titles, except Game Archives releases — which is the Japanese label for PSone Classics, NeoGeo games and various other retro downloads. Apparently Sony's preparing to release more information about this limitation in a future update.

We just assumed we'd be able to load up Final Fantasy VII if and when we wanted on our brand-spanking new PlayStation Vita. That's not looking to be the case.
