Not Compatible with Sony’s New Handheld…Yet

We are only a couple of weeks away from the launch of Sony’s Playstation Vita system.  Among the new portable’s features is backward compatibility with several titles from the Playstation Portable.

Today, Sony released a list of compatible PSP titles able to be transferred and played on the PS Vita, and while there are a couple hundred that make the list, two notable ones for Sonic fans did not.  Both Sonic Rivals and Sonic Rivals 2 will not be backward compatible with the Vita, at least not in time for the handheld’s launch.

Company representatives will update the list of compatible titles as needed, but there is little indication as to the intervals updates would be made.  We’ll let you know if and when compatibility is confirmed for the Rivals series.  Thanks to AugieD who tipped us on Twitter.
