Update: Spyro the Dragon and Crash Bandicoot Games Could be Downloaded on Vita, But Not Anymore
Too Bad!

Merely hours after their weekend flash sale including the games, Sony has allowed Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon games to be openly downloaded on Playstation Vita. Spyro 1-3, Crash 1-3, and Crash Team Racing are now all available for direct download, and will be on your Vita’s download page if you bought them this weekend. It seems a bit odd that they became available after the sale ended, but for all of us who said “eh whatever” and dropped the 99 cents for a classic game, it’s nice to have it portable.

It is unknown at the time how Sony procured the rights to distribute the games on Vita. I have emailed Sony about this, and will update the page when more is known.

UPDATE: According to NeoGAF, a bunch of other PSP games and demos that were previously removed from the store are now able to be downloaded again, such as the Dragonball Z Budokai game for PSP. It is unconfirmed exactly how many games are being made available again, but it’s starting to look like…all of them.

UPDATE 2: The availability of deleted and unavailable games seems to have been a fluke. Any games that you downloaded onto your Vita still work, but if you didn’t download them yet, they’re gone again. Damn shame.
