"It appears that hacking the Sony PS Vita is only a matter of time, but the jury is still out on how easy or hard it may turn out to be"

I read through that just for that? Waste of time, yes the Vita will get hacked as all handhelds do.

hopefully not soon enough

developers are the ones who'll get screwed by this so am not hoping for it.

A hacker told me that the Vitas PSP emulator is easy because its the same structure as the PSP one. But hacking Vita games is extremely difficult to do, due to their high level of encryption. I don't doubt that the Vita will get hacked but i hope it doesn't happen anytime soon.

It not be right away but who can say that the hackers are not doing their home work right now... The ps3 was hack after some year after it's release... The ps vita games are real cheap and there is no excuse for anybody not to buy a $30 game and support the people who are working everyday to make us Sony fans happy...

I will pay for my games but I still want it hacked. You can some pretty fun things when you have hacked a console.

its kind of annoying that hackers have to destroy great hardware for millions of ppl.. i just don't see why they even bother...

the 3DS was hacked a few months ago, action replay 3DS is allready out and they have allready made a R4 for 3DS its just a matter of time b4 the R4 is released to the public..they said it would take about 6 months to get it out public..thats about 3-4 months ago

Nintendo did say that they will ban any modded 3ds system if it was hacked...
