I remember back when the english version of this game first came out several of us were thinking of importing a Vita TV to play it on. Thankfully Wyrdwad let us know that the English version of Celceta wasn't compatible with the Vita TV.
Well spurred by a thread started on another forum I frequent, and my own desire to play the game. I was hoping Wyrdwad could let us know if the English version of Celceta would be getting a compatibility patch like the Japanese version did now that the Vita TV is officially released over here ?
I was also wondering if anyone knew about the Playstation TV's compatibility with the previous PSN Ys games?
All the previous Ys games are PSTV compatible for sure.
Celceta, however, is still not, and it's entirely up to Falcom if and when that will change. The patch from the Japanese version needs to be applied before Sony will approve the game for PSTV compatibility here, but it can't just be applied as-is without coding adjustments being made to account for differences in the English version, and Falcom hasn't had time to make those changes. It's unknown if and when they'll make the time to do it -- all we can do is continue to hound them at every opportunity and hope for the best, unfortunately.
Ha ha! I just came back to the board after, oh, I don't even know how long to ask the same thing and it's all squared away. Thanks for letting us know what's up, Wyrdy. I hope they fix it soon, but there's plenty of fun stuff to do on PS TV in the meantime. For those in the US who are considering one, Best Buy's running a killer deal on them- excited that I can finally play all my PS+ Vita games. Well, most of em.

I can confirm. Last friday I found that a local Best Buy was selling Playstation TVs for $40 (spoilers, Amazon has them for $35). I bought one just to play Ys Memories of Celceta because I don't own a Vita. So I spent $40 on a Falcom TV adapter (I only have Celceta and Brandish loaded on it). You don't even need a memory card to play Celceta. The internal memory on the PSTV is enough.
I almost considered picking up TitS:SC's PSP release just to play on PSTV because I still have my FC PSP save, but never got around to getting a complete FC save on Steam.
Other thoughts: Having the PSTV as a US-registered device is nice because I like to keep my PSP on JP-registered for my Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity DLC, LSD Dream Emulator, IQ Final, & Umihara Kawase. Good on XSEED for having so many games available digitally. Boo on Sega for not having Phantasy Star Portable 2 available digitally nor Sega of Japan for supporting PSO2 on PSTV. At $35 I almost considered buying another PSTV for my JP PSN account to be a Phantasy Star TV adapter....
