    bob: what ver. of the game do you have?

  2. bob says:

    Just to add a bit more information
    1. My version is from J-PSN
    2. I had reviewed the PSN store about 1-2 hours ago
    3. Had Wifi on when I went to play

    This could be a remnant of PSP update system (that did start late in the systems life) but I think most of those where just re-downloading the game’s eboot again.

    =/

  3. senas8 says:

    Maybe it would be a good idea for people to backup the game now.. incase it gets pached automatic???.. kind of paranoid, but I backed mine up a long time ago :)))

  4. bob says:

    Again I don’t know if this has any effect on the hack as a whole (could just be a strange firmware glitch).

    Here is a bit more
    1. If I start the game now I don’t get a force install or told to update but…
    2. If I press PS button to return to the live area I get this.

    • wololo says:

      This surely looks like an update… For now I’d like to see if other people are seeing the same thing…

      • KvD says:

        Hi. love ur work. can confirm the update message after returning from game for eu (germany). that´s new. earlier that day there was no such message.

      • KvD says:

        can also confirm that the game is no longer available in PSN and removed from my download list.

        • wololo says:

          Just to clarify, does this mean Sony prevents you from installing the game, removed the download, and didn’t issue a refund to you?

          • KvD says:

            the game is installed already, and backups made^^ it is “only” removed from the store and my download list so that i can not download it again from psn. but i can copy it with openCMA in both directions.

  5. snail says:

    I started downloading the game this morning in Australia, (there goes 30 bucks :/) and left for work so ill let you know how things turn out when i get home in 5 hours. Hope fully they didnt apply the patch before i downloaded it.

  6. senas8 says:

    I don’t know.. I don’t think the update is for the game than.

  7. snail says:

    @bob – wow i hope you pressed cancel.

  8. bob says:

    Sorry just to add a bit more

    I made a slight mistake in my last post. I don’t get that message when I hit the PS button. I get it when I hit the PS button then hit the game’s live area icon to resume the game. Clicking cancel will let me return to the game and I can still play the game normally just fine. I think the whole loading lock up was a firmware glitch since it affected me trying to launch another PSP game (it hang at an initial load) and then I had to do a force power down on my unit).

    So if someone else is brave enough to test, here are some steps I think might produce it.
    1. Turn Wifi on
    2. View the J-PSN store
    3. Exit everything and run Motorstorm
    4. Create a new profile and go to start the main event.
    5. Durring the load screen or after the race starts hit the PS button to return to the live area
    6. Click the game’s image to start the game.

    or

    1. Go to the game’s live area, press the Orange button in the top left (maybe my vita though I touched it?)
    2. See if it says there is an update.

    What I find odd is even if I did accidentally hit the update button and that is what this is about (an old PSP button). I find it disturbing I clicked no to download the update and yet it still downloaded. =S

  9. Pyong says:

    No update to report here

    EU version

    1.61 fw

    I have wifi enabled.

  10. bob says:

    Ok this stuff is getting creepy.
    1. Motorstorm is not in my DL/Purchase history on PSN anymore (at least via vita)
    2. You can still search for the game on PSN (via vita) but when I click to view the game I get an error message in Japanese (will try to get a screenshot in a sec).

    • bob says:

      Well…
      Game is no longer there via search on vita nor does it show up in my DL/Purchase history via MediaGo either.

      Looks like it was pulled (at least for japan).

      • bob says:

        I should add a few more thing.

        . Copy to my PC (via Content Manager, unhacked ver), deleting and copying back to my vita still works (as of 10 mins ago). Not sure how long that will stick.

        . Doing the above still did not get rid of the pop-up asking if I wish to install the update.

        . Clicking the PSP Orange/Yellow icon to check for updates says my version is currently up to date.

        . There is no notice, in the notice area, on my vita of it downloading any update (for motorstorm or system file) at all. Generally for Vita game updates/patches the download and update show up in the notice area (clicking the giant bubble in the top right).

  11. senas8 says:

    ^ Ok that I can confirm the game is no longer in my DL Purchase history.

  12. senas8 says:

    Well wololo: I guess they pulled the game either way.. exploit release or not. Hmmmm.

  13. Mastarifla says:

    If you have Motorstorm downloaded, immediately back it up to your PC so you have a copy, also make another copy in case you delete that one by accident.

    You can also store a copy on your PS3, it will just be an annoying bubble on the game xmb, but that’s fine.

    Those that believe there is another exploit grab that game as well.

  14. Xe says:

    Motorstorm taken down from UK sotre? looks like it to me, says no content. (i already hav the game)

  15. Pyong says:

    will the exploit still be released after this?
    I’d hope so as I bought it just for this, not a bad game, but I’d have rather spent my money on something else.

  16. Im at 45% on data transfer on the US version I downloaded earlier ill attempt to ftp into my cfw ps3 to get the game on pc later tonight. After that I gotta attempt to transfer it to the vita via OpenCMA… hope it works… if not ill look for another way. I don’t see why this wouldn’t be possible wish me luck.

  17. Xe says:

    backed up my copy, any news if vhbl is still ago? :D

  18. Also does anyone know if there are different software versions of CMA for different regions and if so would it effect the transfer from CMA? Has anyone been successful in transfering it to there PC via CMA in other regions? I would love to hear a bit of feed back on this if anyone knows something?

    • sculiX says:

      I transfered the game from vita to pc successful in austria (AUT) yesterday at 20:00 (UTC+1) with no problems ;)

  19. senas8 says:

    TechMemphis: I think your out of luck.. should have downloaded using the vita form EU or JPN.

    • eh well ill know for sure in a couple hours im doing this also to see if other psp games not available via ps3 psn store transfer or directly in the vita store will work on a vita at all. I have other ideas on getting this game to my vita as well. Ill just play around and if it doesn’t work i don’t think its a loss as it along with the other titles will probably be available at some point in the future… plus I wanted the game anyway I love motorstorm never owned a psp though so I couldn’t play arctic edge. Can’t wait for the RC release in the US next week either.

  20. Xe says:

    my bad i was trying to backup when i was commented, unsuccessful backup here in the UK with open CMA, ive just got the 1 copy on my vita then, if i have to restore im screwed

  21. eviterno says:

    i downloaded the ape quest demo from media-go and after from vita, i confim the ape quest psp demo work fine in ps vita, no need a ps3

    hi!

  22. KKS says:

    So are you going to release VHBL?

  23. archery says:

    wololo, i admire your work, im in the US. i had my vita for a week now. apparently when i finally got off work to look at your site, just found out that motorstorm is the game… =( sadly, its too late now to purchase the game. it would have been nice if you released vhbl to download before releasing the name of the game. that way we have time to download game cuz as soon as you announced it, sony pulled it out within a couple of hours =( i hope you find a patch in the future that will enable us to have vhbl without the game. thanks anyway. i guess i will just have to buy a psp… keep up the good work and hopefully you find a way in the future to enable vhbl without the game

  24. archery says:

    lol somehow sony is also watching this website….
    since sony is monitoring this site> BRING SKYPE TO THE PS VITA SO THE CAMERAS WILL BE USEFUL SINCE WE PAY A LOT FOR THIS STUPID SYSTEM! lol

  25. fex8sed8 says:

    crap- bought it earlier on my ps3 uk account- didnt get a chance to format my US account of my vita to Uk- till now. I just tried to install it without having enabled internet on either ps3 or psvita… wouldn’t allow me to “must have internet connection to use content manager” after enabling the ps3′s internet connect I tried transferring Motorstorm over to my vita- “some content could NOT be copied” !!!! so I checked my downloads – not there…. either way so what is everyone going to do when their copy that was bought prior to this stops working?? I mean if I didn’t know about this and was the average user I’d be PISSED!!!

  26. Skunky says:

    Looks like they pulled Motorstorm from the PS Store… in Australia anyway!!

  27. Insua says:

    This is hilarious. Now just suppose that you announce 50 other titles with the same vulnerability. Will Sony pull them out from their store ??? 50??? announce 100!
    That was a hasty decision

    (unless they knew before what was the game…)

  28. thorwak says:

    Update (EU / SWE)
    Searching for “motorstorm” now in ps store from vita show a free download called “Rally Car” with the icon of “Motorstorm Arctic Edge”. I took one for the team (have backup + second Vita anyway) and downloaded the “free game”. I took a few seconds, then I got “installation complete”. I am fairly certain my game is now patched, but can’t cofirm until I have access to vhbl / crash exploit.

    DO NOT INSTALL THE FREE “Rally Car” would be my humble advice ;)

    • thorwak says:

      Yep, upon staring Motorstorm A E I now got a brief “Installing…”

      Also, the game crashed my entire Vita now so bad it turned itself off completetly :D Hilarious

      • thorwak says:

        Final note: The patch/addon turns Motorstorm Arctic Edge into “collectors edition”. It may or may not patch the save game vulnerability.

        I have also verified it works fine to copy the original game back from PC, this removes the “collectors edtion” text from start screen. I could then redownload the patch/addon etc.

        So, it would appear a backup can restored back to the Vita easily, even over a newer version. Probably good news :)

  29. Kuro says:

    Wasn’t there another game like motorcross that does the same thing? If there was, when will the name be released?

  30. Dave says:

    Help!!! I keep getting (The connection to the server has been terminated NP-2244-2) Trying to buy everybody’s Tennis from UK store. Anyone know how to fix?

  31. jadenspades says:

    i have downloaded numourous numbers of eboot files all of them strictly for the 1000-3000 series and used every fourum i could find in the end after three days of no sleep i can start the exploid save and open the tn-v4 recovery screen however the eboots i try never get found i have named them 660.PBP over and over i have moved them from the game to outside the folder copies everywhere in the vita save file and even put one copy in a folder inside the game TITLEd UPDATE so it might on off chance need to see that folder is the update to find the file and it still does not find the file and immediatly sends me a error loading 660.PBP wtf will some one who was struggling or has the solution please messege me im at a loss hell here is my email damn …. – mustangman793@gmail.com email me anytime im going nuts over here
