Classic PlayStation Title Appears in Vita Store, But Isn't Playable Yet

A classic PlayStation title appeared in the PS Vita store overnight, kindling hopes that players would now be able to enjoy their classic games on the go. Alas, the game is not actually playable, but its appearance does indicate that perhaps the anticipated feature is nearly ready for prime time.

NeoGAF users spotted the game, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, in the European Vita store and were able to purchase and download it, but the game generated an error code on launch and could not be run.

Sony Worldwide Studios head Shuhei Yoshida recently tweeted that engineers were "working hard" on adding support for PS One games to the Vita, and begged for patience from fans.

So far it seems that the only known arrival time for the feature is "soon," constant bane of gamers everywhere.
