Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, which was released this week on PSN as a PSone classic, isn’t compatible with Vita or PSP as of yet. While it’s playable on PS3, Sony said it is working on a fix which will make the game playable on the portable systems, as was promised when it was announced. According to a post on the PS forums from community manager Morgan Haro, “worst case scenario” is that it may be a few weeks before you can take your Persona 2: Eternal Punishment on-the-go. We’ll keep on top of this for you, and as soon as we hear anything more, we’ll let you know. Thanks, Joystiq.

Only Eternal Punishment was localised at the time, so a PSP port of Innocent Sin headed in 2011. Eternal Punishment also got a PSP port in Japan in May 2012, but according to the PlayStation Blog, the version we’re getting is a PSOne Classic.
