So I got on my PS Vita a couple days ago. For some reason I was feeling like a good shot of nostalgia. I went to the psone classics section but was surprised to find that you couldn't get spyro or crash on the PS Vita. I know you can get it on the PS3, but why not the PS Vita? Help Please.

Those games have not been available for the Vita since the system launched. Since Sony recently bought the rights to Crash Bandicoot back from Activision we might see it soon
1. Sony never owned Crash to begin with. Universal Interactive did back in the PS1 era. Universal then merged with Vivendi, which then merged with Activision.
2. Do you have a link to an article that says "Sony just bought Crash!"? I have difficulty believing that.
Never mind about #3.
Kingbro1 after I looked into it I found a Activision post about the company saying they still rights to the series. With the rumors going around a while ago I stopped reading up on it. My Apologizes
Good to know.
I just wanted to bump this up. I've seen dedicated efforts going around for about a year but no coordinated effort.
There is this petition that people can sign but it seems that despite numerous amounts of people complaining on the PSblog even in the most unrelated posts(and the community managers have clearly taken notice but I am not sure if they have forwarded it) people need to shout louder and do whatever it takes.
The other thing people can do is mass tweet @yosp on twitter with the same hashtag or people who could bring this forward. I say use the hashtag #BringCrashandSpyrotoVita
With people remarking this on sites like Reddit, Neogaf, Gamespot, IGN etc and people complaining about it almost EVERYWHERE there needs to be more unity for something like this.
A simple google search brings up thousands of links of requests so the least they could do is address why it hasn't happened.
I have tried to transfer Crash 2 from my PS3 to PS Vita and it does not get detected at all when I try to do it. Can you tell me how did you do it and is your account EU or US?
As far as transfering from PS3 to VITA, I did it before but according to someone on the forums sony put a stop to this in a firmware update. I cannot verify as I sold my Vita a few months ago.
It is currently not possible to transfer the United States versions of the games to Vita from PS3.
However, apparantly both the Europe and Japanese versions on their PSN stores ARE possible, which I find to be very odd.
