Sony Playstation TV (Vita TV) – Incompatible games

NOTE: The PSTV has been officially discontinued worldwide. This may mean future Vita titles are less likely to be compatible.

Below is a list of INcompatible titles (i.e. games on the below list won’t work). Some games may get patches adding compatibility at a later time, and some games have to be patched to the latest version in order to work with the Playstation TV, even if the retail packaging says the game is compatible. Even if a game is unlisted don’t immediately assume it’s compatible, especially if it isn’t on Sony’s official list. Some games may have to be redownloaded fully in order to work instead of restoring an older install through the content manager, or “refreshed” by hitting the icon with the two circular arrows on its launch “home” page, and on rare occasions a game may work even if the store warns that it won’t. Note that some touch-based rhythm games or Quick-Time Events in games such as Killzone: Mercenary may benefit from using a Dualshock 4 due to its touchpad if it expects touchscreen swipes, or be easier on a proper handheld Vita to better align with the on-screen swipe prompts.
