GR: "The PS Vita can be hacked to run homebrew software and games on an emulator."
i thought running psp homebrew on a vita was old news? i mean if it was running a vita homebrew than that would be really interesting... and sony will be shitting their pants
coudnt agree more. i was hoping this had something to do with the ps suite that just come out :(
Why are people still hacking to do this now that the ps suite sdk is out?.. I though it's just homebrew they wanted? -_-
I haven't got a clue, maybe hackers just want total freedom and create homebrew for free. No matter what Sony does to try and promote developers to create great things for their systems, hackers always finds way to spoil it. PS2 linux was apparently pretty popular which led to Sony making Linux fully compatible with the PS3, but hackers just love to fuck around with Sony and spoil it for everyone.
The new playstation SDK that allows your own games/apps is FREE. They've released the tools, it's that simple. I agree with the last sentence :)
This is old because shortly after the Vita came out in Japan there was a video from Wololo where he played Doom on it. XperiaRay
Oh the irony, you know, cos the Vita is DOOMed. . .
what a troll Sent from my doomed PS Vita
At least you're acknowledging that it is doomed.
Oh dude shut up seriously. Im sure everyone is sick of seeing your negative comments towards Sony on every Sony related article. Piss off.
lol tbh I don't think sony are too fussed about homebrew as the article implies just pirated games... which they for obvious reasons if you look at the PSP feel will come from homebrew hacks :/
This is old.
So whats the name of the next PSP sony? lol
Now the fun begins
the vita is definitely not hacked, theres an exploit that makes psp things playable, nothing else. btw, this exploit requires that you have a very specific game and anytime that that game is spread through forums its going to be pulled form the store a day or two later and eventually the exploit will be removed. these victories are pyrrhic, if they keep using the few games that are capable of this exploit, every game that allows this will be patched. they probably wouldnt end up getting patched if it wasnt for them either. sony isnt going to go through every game they have, theyre going to let these guys do it. what does sony have to loose? the pirates here have to buy sony products to try and get this to work and if all they have are psp exploits theyre not going to have anything for very long. kind of a waste of someones time to sit there and test games for something that will undoubtedly be patched right after release. all sony has to do is take down whatever game theyre using for exploiting and the problem is solved from a piracy standpoint, the game still has to be patched though
have u heard that hackers already got access to the PSVita core files and they are building a Custom Firmware right now as i type this?
no i havent, but if its true its very disappointing. also, building custom firmware shouldnt take very long unless theyre changing a lot (they shouldnt, most likely they just need a custom launcher and to change a handfull of variables to have a stable release) so this must be very recent
This is so, so old... There has been a Motorstorm Artic Edge exploit, after that an Everybody's Golf exploit, if you want the latest news go to wololo.net and read up the newest stuff. The PSVita is partly hacked, but what it runs is what can run on the original PSP in homebrew, as its an exploit within the PSP emulator on the PSVita. That doesn't mean that more is upcoming though. The total PS3 CFW that runs PS3 games even started with a partial hack in the OtherOS/Linux part of the PS3's system, after that there was a hardware hack combined with OtherOS hack that lead to the total hack and control over GameOS. So... Interesting nontheless.
ha, this is from the pssuite beta... now that its open its easy to see ;)
Thats fine, just don't rob devs from their hard work. Plus more games will be out for it
