Sony: no plans to bring PS2 or PS3 games to PS Vita

"At this point."

Sony has no plans to bring PS2 or PS3 games to PS Vita, it's confirmed.

"Users can play supported digital PSP titles and supported minis," Sony said in a Vita FAQ on the PlayStation Blog.

"In regard to PSone classics titles, we will announce further details when they are ready.

"PlayStation does not have plans to make PS Vita compatible with PS3 or PS2 titles at this point."

The news is sure to disappoint PlayStation fans buoyed by the addition of games such as God Hand in the PS2 Classics range to the European PlayStation Store this week.

And it is a somewhat surprising decision given the Vita's horsepower is significantly higher than the PS2's.

Vita launches in Europe and the US on 22nd February.
