European PS Vita users were able to purchase the first PSOne Classic
to be released on the platform yesterday. But don't get too excited – it didn't work. And it was Buzz Lightyear of Star Command
. The game could be purchased, but presented errors when users attempted to run it or view the manual, suggesting that PSOne Classics support is not quite ready on the Vita.
However, the "LiveArea" for the game – the screen that pops up when you tap a game's icon, where you can choose to launch the game, view the manual, check the store for DLC, etc. – displayed a custom PSOne-style background, suggesting that, at least, some work has been put in on the Vita's PSOne emulation.
