Initial Slate of Vita-Compatible PSP Games Revealed

275 games are available right now, with more promised in the coming weeks.

If you only have a stack of UMDs, there's no way to take those bad boys over to a Vita in the US.

If you’re one of the people who’ve lucked into an early Vita, it’s now possible to start downloading PSP games onto the device. You can’t just dump any PSP game from PlayStation Network onto a Vita.

On the PlayStation Blog, Sony has outlined a list of 275 games that are already capable of making the PSP-to-Vita transition, with “more” games being added to that list “in the coming weeks.”

Whether Sony is aiming for complete compatibility isn’t known, but I’ve asked for clarity on that.

The list is, uh, pretty big (and doesn't include PSP Minis, which are listed on the blog separately):
