The PSP only has one analogue stick. The PSVita has two.
The Vita can play PSP games, so what if there was a way for a PSP game to benefit from the Vita’s extra analogue stick?
Well, I’m glad that I asked that question, because Square Enix has announced that if you play PSP game Final Fantasy Type-0 on a Vita system you can use the second analogue stick for camera control.
Type-0 director Hajime Tabata told an audience at a Square-Enix event in Japan that using the right analogue stick “ups the playability” of the portable title.
The game’s multiplayer won’t be a problem on the Vita either, with a Square-Enix representative confirming that it will work just fine.
This news isn’t exactly going to be the most exciting thing you’ve read all day, but at least it’s encouraging news that some PSP titles might get an extra lease of life on the Vita with a second analogue stick for camera control, especially considering how woefully inept it could be on the PSP itself.
