Sony has acted with lightning speed to shut down a new exploit by computer science student and self-proclaimed "Vita hacker" Andy Nguyen aka theFlow.
Seems Sony still support the Vita.... lol
Isn't it the most ironic thibg in gaming industry?
Why ironic? It's an 8 year old system that never really sold well, obviously it won't be heavily supported by Sony, but it's still a part of the PlayStation ecosystem and games still release for it. If some well known person is advertising how they are hacking it i'd expect them to shut that down. Not ironic at all.
Why would you want to play vita right now. I don’t even want to play switch on handheld mode.
I'm playing Catherine on Vita.
Although they stopped production I dont think they will stop supporting it any time soon.
These updates aren't really support... not for users anyway. Can't remember an update that was a new feature, or fixing a bug non-related to hacks.
Keep dreaming, they killed the ps vita when they launched the PS4, and that a fact.
Yep very true I was pissed 😤 I had the OLED Vita 32 gb memory stick Killzone Mercenaries Ninja Gaiden 2 were the main games I played besides psp fight night round 3.I remember soon as ps4 came about the vita commercials slowed down than we started getting cell phone quality games and that was it. The Vita reminds me of Dreamcast a little because its impressive tech that didn’t get a chance to show itself
The PS4 launch helped the Vita in a sense because it offered widespread remote play and the Vita was almost positioned as a PS4 companion. Vita just didn't sell and PS4 did, so obviously PS4 got the attention. blueben Obviously Sony focused marketing and development towards the PS4 upon its release, PS4 was brand new and it was their main console as well as massively popular. However, there were still excellent games that released around or after the launch of the PS4. Tearaway -2014 Freedom Wars - 2014 SEVERED - 2015 World of Final Fantasy - 2016 Final Fantasy X/X2 HD Toukidan Kiwami - 2014 Oreshika - 2014 Odin Sphere - 2016 God Eater 2 Resident Evil Revelations 2 - 2015 Dragon Quest Builders - 2016 Helldivers Resogun Darkest Dungeon Shovel Knight Those are just off of memory i'm sure there are more quality/and/or big games that released after PS4. You say you only really played Killzone Mercenary and Ninja Gaiden on Vita prior to the PS4 releasing, but KZ Mercenary literally came out 1 month before PS4. Did you buy KZ Mercenary on day 1 and play it like crazy for a month? C'mon man. The game came out right around the launch of the PS4.
@Durden that list sucks for a Playstation and you know it You just tryna bail the ps4 out Vita was new too!
Homebrew can often keep a console alive well after its prime. Sony stopped making games for this thing forever ago and it's essentially a dead console in terms of any major titles. So it's strange to see Sony being so aggressively anti- cfw
My first thought as well. I can’t renember the last time I saw any news about the Vita and I liked the system.
This turned to be a fake. how can i report.
Yeah right.... this is not what I call "support." Support would be continuously releasing great games over the years and not abandoning Vita owners. The 3DS also had a rough first couple years but Nintendo didn't give up and call it a "legacy system"
Next gen they should make another handheld to go along with the PS5.
They screwed up the PSvita in regards to the PS4 remote play function. The PSVita button layout makes it very difficult or even impossible to play PS4 games. When they advertised the PSVita, that was one of their main selling point. Ps4 connections is mediocre at best. Some days it will connect with issues, some days it cant even connect at all. If they do make one to accompany the PS5, i hope they design it a lot better.
They advertised cross buy and cross save with the PS3/4. They later advertised vita as a PS4 STREAMER once Sony backed away from AAA Vita development. But if your having trouble using your vita for remote play, try using a ps vita tv to stream and use your duelshock 4. They are like $20 or less
@SonyStyled PlayStation TV's have gone up in price due to not being available in stores anymore. Cheapest on eBay is $45 with days left to bid on it, the rest are anywhere between $70 to $140+ and they still have days left.
@SonyStyled PS TVs are not $20 or less anymore, they have skyrocketed up in price. Used, dirty PS TVs with no controller are $100+, and brand new they are $250+ these days. :x Edit: Sgt_Slaughter beat me by 4 minutes. :P
Why the fuck would anyone trust Sony with another handheld, especially after they treated Vita owners like shit?
They supported it with some nice games at first but that was it, i wonder why they stopped? Golden Abyss was a fine example.
Won't be long before 3.72 gets cracked wide open.
I know they are trying to protect the few and far indies that still come to the PSV,.. but it is just so damn late (Even in terms of years) and since not even PS Plus supported anymore,..They should just let people run homebrew for real,..
They have a responsibility to the publishers of those games to try and prevent piracy. Theyll continue to do that for quite some time. Even if they arent supporting the system with allowing new games, they still sell games on the system through the digital store, and retailers may want to sell whatever physical copies there are out there. Sony really has no obligation to allow customers to run unsigned code, which is more likely going to be used for piracy, and not just to run homebrew games
So dumb. I mean the only reason I hacked mine was so I dont have to buy one of those expensive ass memory cards.
Sony: The vita is no longer supported. Also Sony: No, you cannot install whatever you want (or unlock the cellular on US 3G variants)
sony's stellar support of the vita keeps on going....
I still play my Vita regularly. Chasm, Darkest Dungeon, Undertale. I still need to buy Vita games like DQ Builders and World of FF. Trophies on the go, i love my Vita, always have.
You can just buy one off ebay with all roms included. https://www.ebay.com/itm/So... Just turn off WiFi and leave it off
This whole article is wrong. The exploit still works.
This turned to be a fake. Please delete this mods.
