Syphon Filter 2 on PAL Vita

I recently purchased some PSone classics for the Vita. There's a bit of confusion as to what's compatible and what isn't. I purchased all three Resident Evil PSone games via the PlayStation Store. To my surprise, Resident Evil 2 was downloadable to the Vita despite only being listed as compatible with the PSP and PS3 and not showing up at all on the Vita's Store's library. I then purchased the Syphon Filter trilogy, but wasn't as lucky this time. Syphon Filter 2 won't download to the Vita, that's despite being Vita compatible in NTSC regions. When I called to complain, I was told it was due to licensing issues. The game is fucking owned by Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe! What possible issues could they have in licensing their own game to Australian Vitas?!

I can download the game to my PSP without issue, but it's awkward to play without the L2 and R2 buttons. I recently acquired trigger grips for my Vita and it makes a world of difference playing PSone games that use L2 and R2. Is there anyway to force load Syphon Filter 2 onto the Vita? I'm on firmware 3.68. Thanks.

this is it and if you are on FW3.68 you can see if it will transfer with a PS3 that way as a few titles can to that like soul reaver for example.
