A tweet from Sony Computer Entertainment's Shuhei Yoshida revealed that the company's engineers are "working hard" to provide PS1 game support for the Vita.
The original PlayStation title Buzz Lightyear of Star Command was recently detected on the Vita Store in Europe, but attempts to purchase the game have resulted in error.
Regardless, this appearance likely means that Sony is close to making PS1 support on the Vita official. No word yet on whether the same treatment will be extended to North America, but chances are we'll be playing PlayStation One Classics on the handheld soon.
