Firmware 1.80 for PS Vita will bring one of the most requested features to date for the platform: PSOne emulation support, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan announced today. It’s slated to arrive later this summer, as announced during the company’s E3 press conference last month.
While there isn’t much in the way of new news here, we at least now know which firmware revision to expect PSOne support in.
The announcement was made alongside word that Sony will launch a PlayStation 2 Game Archives section on the Japanese PSN later this month. Initial offerings include Resident Evil Code: Veronica, Kessen, Shin Contra, Dragon Force, and Siren. Prices range from 800-1,500 yen. The inclusion of Code Veronica is an odd one, considering Capcom released a slightly more expensive HD version on PSN not long ago.
