Does anyone know of a good list online of all the PlayStation 3 games that also released on the PlayStation Vita?

I’ve suddenly realised the vast amount of really great games on the PS Vita since I never really knew much about them when they were popular and on the market (plus, I was a kid and a 3DS boy). So I realised that getting a Vita will be an awesome way to play PS3 games, for those that were ported. This will be perfect for me, because I’m going to be moving into a van, and only bringing a PS5 in, leaving the PS3 in storage. So playing them on a PS Vita will be the only convenient way to do so, since a Vita doesn’t take up much space.

So far, the main games I’ve added to my Vita wishlist from the PS3 are: LittleBigPlanet; PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale; Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster; Sly Collection

But I’d really like to find a list of all of them so I can look into more and perhaps find more games to play on the Vita instead of PS3.

      The cross-buy list seems to mostly serve the same use, thanks. So how does this work exactly? If the game is cross-buy compatible with PS3 & PS4, does that mean that buying it on PS3 or 4 will make the game become downloadable on the PS Vita too? And is the PS Vita Store still online? Can I buy a game for PS4 physically on disc and get access to the PS Vita game through cross-buy, or does it only work with digital games? Plus, you can buy PS4 games on the PS store for PS5, so if I buy a PS4 that has cross-buy support with the Vita on a PS5, will cross-buy still work and give me access to the game on the PS Vita?

        Yes, that’s the idea.

        And is the PS Vita Store still online?

        It is! The only caveat is if you ever want to buy something, you’ll need PSN credit on your account (paypal / credit card payment can’t be used anymore).

        Can I buy a game for PS4 physically on disc and get access to the PS Vita game through cross-buy, or does it only work with digital games?

        Ish, that’s somewhat iffy. If you were to buy it new, then maybe, but since it relies on a coupon (afaik) which could be expired by now, there’s no way to be 100% sure. Used, that’s a no-go.

        Plus, you can buy PS4 games on the PS store for PS5, so if I buy a PS4 that has cross-buy support with the Vita on a PS5, will cross-buy still work and give me access to the game on the PS Vita?

        Absolutely, that would work.

          Awesome, thanks for answering these questions. I noticed a typo in my last question though and I want to know you didn’t misunderstand it. Where I said “so if I buy a PS4 that has cross-buy support with the Vita on a PS5”, I meant to say “so if I buy a PS4 game that has cross-buy…”. Is your answer still the same?

            Oh right, that’s what I actually understood anyways, so my answer is still the same!

      Thanks. Despite not owning a Vita, I’ve actually got a loose cartridge of Borderlands 2 somewhere which I’ve owned for like 5 years now, lol. I know it’s a bad port, but it seems like it would be a fun novelty to play on an overclocked console (I’ve seen some video tests and performance can really be boosted)

      Most of those games in your list I’m getting on other platforms though. Like The Walking Dead on PS4, Spelunky on GOG (PC), Hotline Miami on GOG, Rayman Origins I already own on GOG, MGS HD on PS5. But thanks for the small list, it’s a good one otherwise.
