Best PSP/Vita/PS3 Homebrews for June 2012
Here are the 10 most popular homebrews as voted by you in June 2012. We just started adding PS3 homebrews to our database, so it is still missing lots of classics for this platform, but feel free to add homebrews (no login required!) to /Downloads and I’ll review them shortly!
10. PS3UserCheat (PS3)
octox0r’s reverse of one of the DRM dongles seems to gather lots of attention lately. Will he help to reverse engineer the infamous True Blue? In the meantime, the PS3UserCheat dongle has become obsolete with this application, which lets you cheat in PS3 games on any CFW.
9. Lamecraft (compatible PSP/Vita)
One year after its release, the popular Minecraft is still doing strong. Its creator Drakon updated it recently to make it compatible with VHBL on the PS Vita. Feel free to check our Lamecraft forums for mods, themes, maps, and the popular s4inexCraft
8. PSPokemon Grey
Still in its early Beta stages, but it’s gathering more and more attention
7. NesterJ (compatible PSP/Vita)
The popular NES Emulator for the PSP. also works on the Vita if you’re one of the lucky VHBL owners.
6. Pro CFW
I don’t think we could live without Pro CFW. It was already perfect last year, but the recent updates turned it into a full free online service for those of you who want to play adhoc games with friends all over the world (and who’d rather get a fully integrated solution rather than going through the xlinkkai setup, or the “you need a ps3 to enjoy your psp to it’s full potential” adhoc party. Pro CFW B is dead, long live Pro CFW C!
Yosh’s alternate menu for VHBL was an instant hit. It provides a “horizontal version” of the XMB for all your homebrews in VHBL. If you are one of those enjoying VHBL on your Vita, just replace the EBOOT.PBP file from VHBL with the one provided by Yosh, and enjoy this great menu!
The best screenshot plugin ever made for the PSP. The Vita features a “screenshot” utility to take pictures of your favorite games, but the PSP doesn’t have that… well, if you’re on a CFW, plugins can help with that, and prxShot is by far the best tool for screenshots.
3. Snes9xTYL (Compatible PSP/Vita)
With the NES emulator NesterJ mentioned above, this is the second Nintendo emulator mentioned in this list. Hey PSP scene, do we have some kind of Nintendo complex?
Well, Snes9xTYL really deserves it, it’s a very impressive and stable emulator, and has been in the top list forever 🙂
The old school platformer with some RPG elements is still one of people’s favorites. This guy, like snes9xTYL above, has been in our Top 10 for a long, long time.
Works on the vita too!
1. Bookr and… Some Forgotten Homebrews
We’ve got an ex-aequo situation here for number 1. First, Bookr, the best eBook reader on the PSP. It works with the Vita too on VHBL, and, well… basically it’s a must have on both platforms, if you ever thought once that you could use your PSP or your Vita for something else than games 🙂
And with as many votes, Mishka84 ‘s compilation of almost 100 awesome homebrews from the past. I won’t name them all, some of them require the Leda plugin to work, others will work fine on HBL/VHBL, or directly on a CFW psp. So yeah, this one is not a single homebrew, but I guess your votes are here to say thanks to Mishka84 for the great work in collecting those.
We have many more cool homebrews on /downloads, feel free to add yours and to rate your favorite ones!
