Report: Vita won’t support Flash or Game Archives titles at Launch

Wednesday, 26th October 2011 19:04 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

It looks as though PlayStation Vita’s browser won’t support Flash at launch, according to a Famitsu report.

It will, however, support Javascript version 1.7 and HTML5 upon release.

The report also states users will be able to transfer save files from previous PSP games through PS3 or PC to continue playing  where left off with bi-linear filtering enabled in order to smooth out textures from PSP’s 270p to Vita’s 540p screen.

The Famitsu FAQ also noted that Game Archives titles will not be supported at launch, which supports downloadable PsOne and TurboGrafx-16 titles in Japan.

Since Vita is suppoedly compatible with PsOne games, support for the feature will possibly be released in an update sometime after launch.

Thanks, Shack. Via Siliconera.

    Well considering it’s launch in japan is Dec 17th that gives them 2 FULL months to get the kinks worked out with the Japanese community being the beta testers. I think that’s fair since they get early access. Still my most anticipated device

    Ooh, bad choice, Sony. For the Western market, at least. As I’m certain that being able to watch videos on Youtube and other flash-based video services would help the device sell.

    When did they ever promise Flash support? Please link me to it. The impressions and expectations you yourself create of the handheld are not in any way Sony’s fault.
