On the latest issue of Famitsu, the magazine outlines a ton of new little facts about the PlayStation Vita.
Famitsu confirms that “Game Archives” will not be playable on the PS Vita on launch. These include PlayStation games such as PSOne classics. The magazine specified “at time of launch” so hopefully this means it will be implemented at a later date.
Here’s the full list of details about the PSP:
-Sony is looking into a method of allowing PSP owners to carry their save data over to the Vita.
-Sony will offer a “Portable Charger,” a battery which offers double the capacity of the system’s built in battery.
-The system’s web browser supports Java, HTML5, cookies, and so-forth. It does not support Flash. However, this is just initial functionality.
-As the Vita does not use Memory Stick or SD Card, if you want to transfer your music and images from PSP to Vita you’ll need to go through PC or PS3.
-The system’s brightness level setting is not step-based — you can make gradual adjustments.
-You can put the system into sleep mode by quickly pressing the power button. Outside of sleep mode, you can temporarily suspend the current game by pressing the PS Button, which takes you to the game’s Live Arena. You can then use such functionality as PS Store, friend lists, photos and so forth. If you want to boot up another game or the video player, though, you’ll need to exit the current game.
