Earlier in the week, Sony made a version 1.80 firmware update available for the PlayStation Vita, and began to make PSOne Classics compatible with the device. While Europe saw more than 100 Vita-compatible PSOne games, North America only saw a handful. Today, Sony have added a few more to the U.S. compatibility list.


Here are the PSone games that are “officially” compatible with the Vita thus far  in North America:


  • Alundra
  • Arc the Lad II
  • Championship Bass
  • Extreme Pinball
  • Grandia
  • Hi Octane: The Track Fights Back
  • Klonoa: Door to Phantomile
  • Magic Carpet
  • Medal of Honor
  • Medal of Honor Underground
  • Nuclear Strike
  • Oddworld Abe’s Exxodus
  • Oddworld Abe’s Oddysee
