Sony Mega Officially Confirms No Game Archives Support at PlayStation Vita Launch

If you want to find out what's happening in scenes like this, you'll need a PS3 or a PSP (or a PlayStation)

PlayStation Vita was pretty much confirmed to not support Game Archives games at launch. But it wasn't mega officially confirmed. Now Sony has totally confirmed it.

Sony added an item to its growing PlayStation Vita Q&A specifically dealing with Game Archives games. The question asks "Can Vita play PlayStation Game Archives games?" The response is something to the effect of, "It won't be supported at the time of the PS Vita launch. Regarding future support, we'll share details later."

The term "Game Archives" usually covers both PlayStation and PC Engine/Turbo Grafx game downloads through PlayStation Network. It looks like early Vita buyers will need to wait to go retro on the system.
