Sony PS Vita PlayStation Store: Play PSone Games

Home > Everywhere > Game Reviews
Published November 3rd 2012
The unique thing about having a PS Vita, is its access to the PlayStation Store.

The PS Store offers a range of titles to choose from at cheap and affordable prices. But what really makes me admire the PlayStation Store is its PSone category, which allows gamers to take a trip down memory lane and relive some of the great titles of the PSone.

Categorised from A-Z, you can search up the PS One title that you require to purchase and download, however it is highly possible the store may not have the game you're looking for. Nevertheless it's still able to provide you with a sense of surprise, when you stumble across a familiar title causing you to say, 'I haven't played that in ages!' Which has you pressing the purchase button.

Prices range from $4.25 - $15.95, why wouldn't you? A bargain.

The PS Store also helps save money especially when it comes to purchasing rare PS One titles, such as Final Fantasy VII, which in the PS One store is at a selling price of $15.95 compared to Ebay and other game outlet stores, which are at ridiculous selling prices ranging from $100 $150. Why spend that much when you can purchase through the PS Store and save. Also a good thing about using the store is you'll know your game is guaranteed to work, rather than getting a physical copy and finding out one of the discs don't work, plus they'll also be safely stored within your console.

Title greats such as the original Resident Evil series, Crash Bandicoot, Cool Boarders, Metal Gear Solid, Medievil, Driver, Parasite Eve, Silent Hill, the Final Fantasy series and many other titles are up for grabs within the store, which tend to ignite thoughts of good memories just as the Sega Mega Drive, Master System, Super Nintendo still do.

Due to the Vita's large display of controls, it's very fulfilling and satisfying while playing the games on the big '5' inch OLED screen.

Although the games still have their PS One graphics, the Vita is able to tone the gameplay experience down, especially in its gameplay and cinematic graphics where it's not too over pixelated or fuzzy, making reliving the old classics fun and enjoyable.
