I'm familiar with the PS Vita's Cross-Play games, which can carry your Vita progress over to your PS3, or vice versa.

This got me to wondering if it was possible to play any of the PS Vita Store's downloadable PSP titles with someone using a PSP, assuming the game itself has multiplayer.

For example, if I tried to play Dissidia Final Fantasy on my PS Vita against a friend who was playing it on the PSP, would I be able to do this?

I believe this works. I cant find a concrete source but when I do, I'll post this as an answer. –  JohnoBoy Feb 14 '13 at 5:36

Yes you can play PSP games online with the PS Vita so long as the servers are still up and running.

Also, apparently if the original PSP game supported Ad Hoc mode, Ad Hoc mode will work on the PS Vita as well.

Cool, thanks. Hm, if this is the case I wonder why Patapon 3 isn't on Vita. I initially assumed the missing games were due to online features –  Ben Brocka Feb 14 '13 at 19:12
