    Awesome, first comment and exciting times.

    Cheers Wololo!

  2. Aries says:

    I just want to say thanks and i still support you Wololo, no matter the technical difficulties. Would buying the psp game on the us ps3 store and transfering it to the vita work?

    • wololo says:

      No, as far as I know he game cannot be transferred from the PS3 to the Vita, some of the testers tried and it failed.

      • omega says:

        hmm that’s odd. Every game I tried so far was transferred from PS3 to Vita without problems.
        Guess I don’t have the game, lol.
        And that info narrows the list down to a few titles, I guess?

      • Riku says:

        That worries me a little. Hopefully it’ll be available over time since I can’t get the stuff off the EU or JP store. Oh well, I”ll just use my PSP for homebrew until than 😛

  3. Aiden says:

    I take it that by saying it’s not on the US store, without mentioning the UK store means we’re good to go in the UK? If that’s the case, have you got a roundabout price in £ ?
    Cheers mate, appreciate the time and work you are putting into the Vita scene.

    • wololo says:

      I *think* the game is available in the UK, but the European store is fragmented by country and I don’t think any of my early testers actually lives in the UK. I foolishly assume that it is available in all Europe countries.

      I will try to get information about the UK price. I assume most people living in the US who want to get the game will try to get it from the UK, so it makes sense to get that information. I will update the post when I have that piece of info.

    • GaryR says:

      He says it’s on the European store so you;re good to go. He also says €20 so £20 should cover it.

  4. shapeshifter says:

    I still prefer the psp for homebrews and vita for vita games only. 😉

  5. shapeshifter says:

    hey wololo does the vita connect to ps3 below 3.55 at all??coz people seem to have got remote play hack on hacked ps3 and obviously unhacked vita.

    • wololo says:

      I don’t know. My PS3 is on 4.something so I can’t test :(

    • warfaren says:

      Yeah the trick is you need to register the Vita as a mobile phone on the PS3.

      Other than that, you can’t connect a 3.55 PS3 Vita with a USB cable, the PS3 won’t recognize it.

      • warfaren says:

        Since I can’t edit, I’ll post a reply to my own post. I wrote some symbols between PS3 and Vita but this website seems to omit them, so what I meant to say was:

        Other than that, you can’t connect a 3.55 PS3 to a Vita with a USB cable, the PS3 won’t recognize it.

  6. Zimond says:

    weren’t there 2 games with an exploit? Is the other one not avaivable in the US too? I’m from europe, but still just asking for the US fans.

    • wololo says:

      Yosh (who found it) did 100% of the work on it so far (exploit + HBL port), so I’ll let him handle the exploit the way he wants. Let’s just say that if his exploit had been more convenient, I would have asked him to use his exploit instead of Teck4’s…

    • shapeshifter says:

      I guess devs will reserve it for future vhbl after 1st one is patched plus vhbl is adapted more to 1st one so should take a while for second I guess

  7. Mart says:

    Nice, March 2nd that’s only a couple of nights sleep w00t w00t.

    * Prepares his PSN account with 20 Euro prepaid credit and will F5 this website after March 2nd a lot….

  8. pokerbob05 says:

    thank you for the update and the hard work, if you need a uk tester,dont hesitate to contact me 😉

  9. MB says:

    If u do, plz do it after 1pm CET, then im off from work 😛

  10. dentalsoulja89 says:

    I’m kind of a noob on this but by homebrew will the gba emulator and snes emulators work?

  11. pokerbob05 says:

    thanks for the update and all the hard work. if you need a uk tester, feel free to contact me 😉

  12. syafiq tatsuya says:

    wololo does this hbl support gba game ???

  13. Crimson Flamebreaker says:

    Finally, can’t wait to play loads of gba games~ 😀

  14. Grey says:

    I’m assuming the game isn’t in the Canadian PSN store either >_>

  15. dimy93 says:

    Most probably the PSN maintenance has nothing to do with Vita itself. More likely it’s connected with the Bulgarian PSN launch scheduled for March 1

  16. Watto says:

    “This also means you’ll have to “link” your vita to a European store every time you want to use HBL.”

    Well, so much for that Idea. I can’t see doing this every time I want to use VHBL.

    I’m appreciative of ALL of you time an effort, but as you said, it’s not practical. The 6.60 PRO firmware on the GO still seems to be the best way to go for me.

    Thank you Wololo. Cheers!

    • wololo says:

      Thanks, and sorry. The game not being available in the US wasn’t part of the plan :(

      • derekotsu says:

        Even if you have to log in everytime to the EU account, its worth the effort of using the VHBL. It’s not like it locks one psn account so yeah lol.

        • James says:

          Well considering you have to keep resetting the PSVITA to factory settings yeah it is quite impractical,
          Thankfully I live in the UK so it’s not a big deal for me, cheers wololo for all your hard work!

  17. Hey there, just a quick question. Does anyone know about the Australian PSN? Also do you have to reset to factory settings every time you go between your homebrew and your paid for games on a local account?

    • wololo says:

      If the accounts you use for the HBL game and the account you use for your “normal” games are on a different account, yes, you’ll have to switch accounts, and therefore do some factory reset. But if you buy the HBL game with the same account as your regular games, no need to do that.
      I don’t know about the availability of the game on the Australian PSN. I would test all countries if I could, but there’s an insane amount of them, and every time I have to create a new account, it gets old very fast.

  18. Matthew says:

    Good, after one month’s waiting,finally it comes, hope the game is the one I owned.

  19. winayy says:

    what is the difference between hbl on psp and vhbl on psvita

  20. Kade says:

    Thx 4 the exciting news. But I just order a psv and can’t receive it before the day of March 2. So I want to ask u how I can be part of the wonderful “first step”. Can I buy a PSN game at first and wait 4 the psv come?

    • wololo says:

      I am not sure. I assume it is unlikely, because you need to set up CMA at least once, and for that, I think it needs to be up to date at least the first time you synchronize it to your PS Vita…

      • Kade says:

        ehh, it’s a tough problem. Only hope for the psv coming earlier and the PSN update doesn’t patch the vulnerabilities used for VHBL. Thx 4 your hard work. I’ll always stand by you.

  21. Tanlet says:

    March 2nd?Can you tell us the time when you release VHBL?

  22. Mercutio says:

    Thanks for all the work that you’ve done! One question though: By the US PSN store, do you mean all of NA? or just the USA?

  23. Astromatik says:

    Humm… for France, i need to create an UK psn account?

  24. Mercutio says:

    Thanks for your time and dedication Wololo! I have one question though. When you say US PSN store, do you mean all of North America?

  25. sculiX says:

    Is the game available in Austria (AUT)? I think so… but im not sure. :)

  26. Null says:

    Good luck for your plan Wololo :). Guys, be patient, we had waited so long for a HEN for the long-unhacked firmwares of the PSP, and it eventually came and everyone was happy. HBL revived the scene back then, and it’s now making a return for the Vita. Though I don’t have one myself, I’m sure you guys can stand waiting 2-3 days :).

  27. Ted Mosby says:

    Wololo!!! Could you Test the Game after the Downtime of the SEN Store, if Sony has already patched it and release the results bevore you release the Name of the Game ?

    This would Save a lot of Money 😉 because, if its a useless PSP Game, it wouldn’t be fun to spent 20 Euros on it.

    Thanks for your efforts and your work.

    Ted Mosby

    • shapeshifter says:

      hey how’s robin?Lol why don’t you wait for reviews and then buy I did that for my friends psp back into those days

  28. Lawliet says:

    Have you got any testers in Spain? Is the game aviable there? Thanks 4 your work

  29. Yomen says:

    Пожалуйста,узнать бы как игра называется я ИЗ России и уважаю твой труд wololo.Google translite. У меня сейчас 19 00 во сколько по моему времени будет объявлено название игры ?

  30. sk8erbender says:

    oh man! what about russian PS Store? Can u check it for me? Im pretty damn sure there is no such game in our f*ckin store

    • Yomen says:

      i can.I dont know what is game.TRANSLIte my messegs by google translite.(я не знаю какая игра а так с радостью бы посмотрел )если кому интересно что то про Русский PS store.спрашивайте.

  31. swatsqad says:

    PlayStation®Network is unavailable due to maintenance.

    what the heck? just tried logging in..

  32. Matt says:

    You mentioned the JP store too…Is it available on there too? I’d rather get it there since I use that account pretty often anyway, don’t even have a EUR.

  33. sculiX says:

    Can you post a short list or entry with the tested countries? Befor 100 of people like i do ask. 😉 PLEASE 😉

  34. John4782 says:

    I could test the Exploit in Germany.

  35. Matt says:

    How do I link my us vita to a eu psn account? After I get a eu psn card of course

  36. king says:

    Thanks a lot , Wololo you’re the best , have a nice day .

  37. xerpi says:

    I can confirm that the game if fully available in spanish Store, and yes, a 20€ PSN Card is sufficient.

  38. sculiX says:

    Know someone if it works in austria (AUT)?

  39. Ahmed says:

    Awwww… :-(

    That is disappointing, I was looking forward this so much!
    But changing to a UK account everytime, in addition to adding 20euros (I already reserved 30$ in my US account for this)…this is a No-Go for me :-(

    Anyway, thanks alot Wololo, it was exciting weeks/days waiting for the name of the game.

    I guess I will stick to my Xperia Play for emulation for now 😉

  40. nobird says:


    will the game be avaliable in singapore ps store?

  41. Badsam says:

    Is a £20 card The absolute minimum? (Meaning the game is between £16-£20), because if it’s a game that’s between £11-£15 people could buy a £5 and £10 card instead (I don’t think a £15 card exists on it’s own)

  42. Gamblor420 says:

    That sucks since I’m in the U.S. I know this was completely out of your control wololo and I thank you for all the time and effort you have invested. Please continue to support the vita homebrew community!!!

  43. Blaze says:

    Wololo can you please tell me if the game is around 10 with 15 euros because i have 15,50 on my account :O

  44. sdgg says:

    i know what game it is…

  45. dquestagod says:

    Well if yosh’s game patch is on US. let us use his for the US. For the guys in UK let them use the teck5’s.But that’s if yosh’s patch is on US game/psn.

  46. dquestagod says:

    Anyway thanks Wololo for your work.

  47. 666xxx says:

    Patapon 2 LOL jajajajajajaja

  48. The boss says:


  49. paul says:

    Thanks Wololo you’re the best

  50. laralovesfoxes says:

    What a disappointment.

  51. junKie says:

    Well, even though i don’t own a Vita of my own (and probably won’t for a long while) this is some exciting news. I mean, it is the first vulnerability released for the Vita.

    Keep up the good Wololo.

  52. Acid_Snake says:

    depending on the size of the game I might get it, I just hope I like the game apart from HBL

  53. Well if the game is on psn can’t I just buy it on ps3 and transfer it to the vita like I have other games that aren’t available directly on the vita? Is there some reason this won’t work? Also what about the other game found for the exploit if its available for all regions why not release that one first? Just curious? TY anyway wololo. I hope I get a chance to try it out and make a couple simple programs for hbl. I never owned a psp so im new to hbl but I love coding so hopefully we can all learn a thing or two from this and it leads to further exploits in some form or fashion.

  54. The_Budds says:

    Sadly the ones hating will be the first ones to download vHBL when it releases. It’s dissapointing that people need to act in such a way to sate their selfish-ness.

    Exatcly as you posted… Being the at the first step is exciting but some need to realise it’s not gonna be everything their minds imagined.

    No matter what… I’m glad to be here, and I’m appreciative to those who made it be.

  55. Retards says:

    You guys are so ***. You’re getting excited for nothing. This was nothing more than another, “Wait and trust me. I promise I will release it in a few days” announcement.

    The next announcement is going to be. “Oh damn, Sony fixed it. BUT! Don’t worry, I have work around that I will release… Soon!”

    • Have you even seen any of the rest of wololo’s work? Or used it? He is legit idk why people say things like this. You should look up who your talking about before you talk about them. I bet you just wanted to comment to either troll or are checking just incase something actually does happen… which is leeching… but eh to each there own I suppose.

    • R.A.V.S.O says:


      Oh I am so very disappointed because my needs were not fulfilled when I wanted them how I wanted them
      and thus will now show how much a sore loser I can be by lowering site morale. I am sure people will actually pay attention to me and see how great an emcee I am.

  56. w00tguy123 says:

    Bummer (is U.S. resident).
    Well, it will be interesting to see how all this pans out. Good things come to those who wait! …That, or a slew of forced updates preventing you from having fun with your console 😛

  57. lvmy says:

    I have 6 PSN games (for my GO), and all of them work on vita even though only 2 of them are announced to be available to vita. (that includes MGS: peace walker, little big planet and hot shot golf)
    I downloaded the game to my PS3 though. could you check if the game works if you copy the NA game from PS3?

    • This is exactly what I was wondering granted there are a few titles that won’t transfer to the vita from ps3 but its very few that I have seen so far.

      • Actually if your willing to test it wololo ill pay for your copy to test from psn NA to see if the transfer works or not if it won’t allow you to back it up to the ps3? Just offering would make it easier on us US owners that wanna try out vhbl if it works.

        • wololo says:

          This has already been tested by some of the early testers and it doesn’t seem to work.

          • Thanks oh well I still may try it I know where I can get a psn code just gotta deactivate my account and create a Eur one… hmmm…

          • I also have another idea I will try to get the us version of the game its not illegal but its complicated :P. Ill probably make a thread here and on NGU if it works about it gotta wait for the title first.

  58. Johanny says:

    I’d like to play my psp backups, because is impossible to transform for vita de UMD discs, but, it looks impossible, I’d like to read books, and aproach the powerbof the vita, but now it is a kind of impossible too, for now I’ve not got hope to enjoy mi Vita, I feel a deeply admiration for wololo, all his work is great, and thanks to him the expirience of the videogame for the portable videogames consoles of sony, is pretty much better. but I mus wait more.

    • Coldbird says:

      Its not impossible, just very hard to do…
      What is impossible here is supporting ALL PSP GAMES.

      With HBL… you can only access the P2 memory partition of PSP… which means you got a total of 24MB RAM to use…

      However… usually games use that 24MB on their own already… leaving no memory for HBL and other modules…

      Coding a game loader including all necessary hooks, etc. will require atleast hm… estimate 500kb memory from that…

      However… if you have a game that eats more than 23.5MB RAM (and trust me, a lot of games do…) – then it will NEVER be supported…

      Also there are a bunch of other things making this near to impossible (but not impossible) – stuff like static elf executables (Phantasy Star Portable 2) and the loadmodule API in general (reboot, etc.).

      For those that still think this is fake I can tell you otherwise… it’s very real… even if not ment for daily use.

      If you want the real homebrew deal buy a used 60$ PSP on ebay and install PROCFW on it… it gets you the better deal overall.

  59. Bugz says:

    My attempts a a PSN Account In korea a few days ago was a disaster. Just me . Thanks.

  60. UnknownSoul says:

    No US, oh well. Time to buy wipeout and Stardust :) so not a total loss for me.

  61. Ted Mosby says:

    If someone already knows the name of the game….please be quite. If Sony gets the hints, they could patch it. And you destroy wololo’s work in seconds….so everybody who get infos or else….be quite!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Riku says:

      It’s not exactly hard for them to make a list at this point. A game under 20 euros that is unable to be transferred to the Vita through the PS3…

      Still though, I doubt they’d take the effort

  62. D says:

    I don’t understand. There are SOME PSP games on the PSN and that sucks, but there are also MANY that can be downloaded via PS3 and transferred to PSVita. Is the game not supported by this either?

  63. William says:

    wololo does the other hello world xploit have a us version?

  64. Beastes6453 says:

    Hi wololo please im in canada do you thing the game is availebale for canada or i have to link to europe and if i have to do it a psn vanada code dont work in eu store ?

    • Mercutio says:

      I just created a US account a few hours ago to compare. the Canadian PSN and the US psn are the exact same =/. The only difference is that the US psn has NBA 2K12, while the canadian doesnt XD

  65. WolfRamiO says:

    we can use the proxy app to download directly from the EU store? no? (getting the url of the server)

  66. cscash241 says:

    I am not too worried about weather or not the game is released on the us store, what I am worried about is someone not finding a way to get on psn on a lower firmware and sony patching what allowed us to copy the exploit to the memorycard. This is the first exploit and will obviously not be the last. It dosent do too much anyway, If I really want to play psp homebrews I would buy a used psp 3000 and doowngrade to 6.20 and install tn hen permapatch

  67. I got an idea. If we download the game from psn on our ps3’s use data transfer to a cfw ps3 and use ftp can we get the game on our computer then transfer it to the vita via OpenCMA?

  68. I don’t know if proxy would allow store access outside the US either but its something else to try.

  69. rabidchild says:

    Too bad about it not being available in the US, but it’s just a matter of time before another exploit pops up that will work. Thanks anyway, Wololo! Looking forward to the day I can play Wagic on my Vita.

  70. uZer says:

    Can I play pirated games already???

  71. MB says:

    And like that Sony postpones march 1st maintenance.
    Guess they read this blog and will wait till u rls then take psn down 😛

  72. Wonder Bread Head says:

    erm…I heard through the grapevine that the game may have just been pulled by sony?

    I hope i am wrong about this.

  73. dwjfind says:

    well,the news is very good .And I’m from China .I’ve thought I can’t use the VBL on my vita .But now ,I’m so happy .I know that can’t run games ,but it’s just a beginning ,we ,all the people ,wish you do better !

  74. Anonymouse says:

    You state: “The game is, after all, available on the US PSN Store, just not for the vita.” If the game is in fact on the US PSN Store for PS3, it may very well be transferable to the Vita.

    Consider this article:

    Best of luck.

  75. Interesting on Sony’s part to cancel a planned maintenance period only time I remember that happening was back when we had psn access on ps3 on cfw firmwares… Not saying this is related but its an oddly timed cancellation…

  76. Anonymouse says:

    Ah, just read the earlier comments… Disregard my last post then.

  77. I say release the name now then and get it over with since Sony cancelled there down time already and you technically originally planned on releasing it sooner anyway… unless they can all the sudden pop back up and say its on again?

  78. HUH! says:

    No ISO support? we dont support pirates? OH, but we do let you play ROMS of game systems you dont own?

    • wololo says:

      Yup. although legally it’s no different, I make a difference between current systems and outdated systems. It’s a personal choice, what I believe is morally right. We all have different limits in what we find right or not, and the copyright laws in most countries belong to what I personally believe to be completely unfair, so I am not blindly following them. A matter of personal choice, really.

  79. senas8 says:

    ^ I guess the title says it all ” The day Sony stood still” :))))

  80. HIMFan says:

    I just want to know how to link my new account to my vita.

    • ASH says:

      You have to restore your Vita, in the “Settings” menu. Don’t worry, it’s a different option than factory resetting your mem card. From then on, you can choose the UK region, or whatever country you want to leech on. Haha.

    • ASH says:

      After that, re-do your wifi settings, etc. You should still see your real PSN account, sign in, and it will redirect you to put your email and pass again.

      • HIMFan says:

        So i didn’t need to make a new PSN account? I chose UK, but it still insists I need to use the account that’s attached to the vita. Or when I did that and chose the UK, can I use my login and look at their store?

        • HIMFan says:

          Nevermind. That Just didnt work. it wants my normal login and the store is still in dollars, not euros or pounds.

          • wololo says:

            you need to rest your console to factory settings, and create a new account. You also need to specify you live in the UK, when you boot the console for the first time.

          • HIMFan says:

            I got it. I chose restore settings. Needed restore ps vita.

            Btw, its midnighthere, am I safe to go to sleep, are you still releasknv it on the 2nd?

          • HIMFan says:

            midnight here*

  81. natsu says:

    Asia have been waiting for this release for almost 3 months now, keep that in mind if you are one of the few who complained that you had to wait for a week)

    so TRUE… im Asian.. ^__^

    • Technically we all had to wait the same amount of time we just got the vita at a much later date than you. Im not complaining either way though just saying at least you could use your vita 2 and half months before we could… -_- the wait for the vita system is what about did me in….

      • wololo says:

        As a matter of fact, I didn’t use my vita much, as I kept it disconnected almost constantly to avoid sending any information to sony’s servers that could leak the game.

        • good idea. I was able btw to successfully data transfer a psp game to a cfw ps3. Tomorrow ill try a ftp client to see if I can extract the game and us OpenCMA to see if I can copy and use it on the vita for the US version of the game… I figure its worth a shot just for simplicity of not having to change accounts im ok with doing that too im just curious if it would work for other games that dont transfer directly to the vita…

  82. Saibanjl says:

    Hmm…can’t wait to experience the difference between psp and psv in Wagic….I mean the loading / start up speed……or the speed of loading opponent deck list..

  83. ok… im at a loss… where does the name wololo come from?

  84. Mauricio says:

    It’s definitely an inconvenience, but I was planning on making a JP PSN account anyways

  85. Welp im going to bed now ill check in the morning.

  86. Mart says:

    Indeed, like the guy above:

    ‏ @PlayStation

    Update: Tomorrow’s scheduled PSN maintenance has been postponed. We’ll update everyone once it’s rescheduled. Until then, game on.”


    Have they decided about this because of your announced release Wololo….

  87. ASH says:

    I’ve made a UK region PSN account, so how do I go about getting funds via PSN card? Can I redeem a NA code for the UK store?

    • wololo says:

      No, the psn codes are regionally locked, you need to use a UK psn card on a uk account. Those cards can be purchased from various websites that will email you the code almost instantly, but I cannot recommend any, as I’ve never used them. If you try, feel free to report your customer experience.

    • Mart says:

      No, buy a UK PSN store code online and use that. The codes are region bounded

    • ASH says:

      Thanks to the both of you! I’ll do my google’ing, and if successful, I’ll be sure to report back.

  88. xiao V says:

    Update: Tomorrow’s scheduled PSN maintenance has been postponed. We’ll update everyone once it’s rescheduled. Until then, game on.”

    Sir,March 2 will be postponed for VBH?

  89. Shawn says:

    It’s funny. I think Sony is waiting until this comes out to fix the errors going on with the Vita itself – mainly, the blinking blue light of death.

  90. wubin says:

    thank you

  91. drachir says:

    hey the game starts with letter “M”

  92. Jackolantre says:

    Motorstorm artic edge is the game or Myst.

  93. Anthony says:

  96. Thanks for a marvelous posting! I really enjoyed reading it,
    you could be a great author. I will always bookmark
    your blog and definitely will come back very soon. I want to encourage that you
    continue your great work, have a nice afternoon!

    My other question, this one may be slightly more pertinent, would be; do I have to activate the PSV for the new account too? And would that conflict with my PSV already being activated with my current account?

  99. HIMFan says:

    Cause I’m having a hard time “linking” my UK account (decided that due to language barriers) and my US vita. Can you just give us like a 3 step tutorial as to how to link it so we’re all ready?
