PSVita Firmware 1.80 out now, PSone Classic Support overly complicated

The new firmware for the PSvita that finally bring PSone classics support to the system is finally out.  The only thing is the whole idea having over 100 PSone classics titles available at the firmware’s launch seems to be a bit of bull as it tuns out that only nine games are available to download on the system directly.

The games currently available for download on the Vita are Arc the Lad, Cool Boarders 2, Final Fantasy VII, Hot Shots Golf 2, Jet Moto, Syphon Filter, Tomb Raider, Twisted Metal 2, and Wild Arms.  There is a way to get more than those titles on your Vita though, but it will require you to have a PS3 to purchase and download then games which you can then transfer to the Vita.  Hit the jump for the current list of titles confirmed to be compatible with transferring off a PS3.

Note: The games must be in their pre-installed form (bubble icon) on your PS3 in order to be transferred over to a Vita.
