Well, I spent the money just to find out and no, Gradius Collection (PSP) is NOT compatible with the PSTV/PS Vita for whatever strange reason.
Sony should be ashamed of the PSTV. It's far worse than the Virtual Boy or anything else which people claim to be a huge flop. They didn't even try with it. I feel bad for people that paid full price for it. I paid $35 and feel it was not a deal at that price.
For me personally, it's worth around $5 to play TkX on a big screen and that's about it.
There is no reason every PSP and PS1 games shouldn't work on it and to require some games to be copied from a PS3 via a media manager is really ridiculous.
But Chimpmeister just said it worked for him. Was he mistaken, or could it depend on whether or not the Vita is a slim maybe? Mine's a slim.
This is even worse than the Destiny interview 2 weeks ago or so.
It's not on that level at all... If you had been holding out for two years for them to update the old version I could see it somehow hitting home. otherwise, pretty obvious that those versions weren't getting updates. And of course the new versions will get updates because the updating process is a lot easier for devs, to say nothing of the increased power and storage on current gen consoles.
Samurai Warriors 3 Chronicles just came out and is PS TV compatible. The controls are fairly different between Vita and PS TV since the game normally uses a lot of touch screen functions, but they mapped them to the DualShock well for PS TV. Here's some Twitch footage:
