    Sony politics again sucks and prooves goes only for money! They don’t care to bring any satisfaction to us customers…

    I’m still thinking to sell my Vita an buy PSP CFW… :S

  2. jayfelice says:

    You know what I believe? I believe forcing updates encourages piracy, plus I believe Sony loses more money overall blocking people from PSN.

  3. I am on 1.81 cma offline still works fine i can send files ofline with CMA for 1.80 work.

    In my country still monster hunter but i dont know if this is patche.

    As far as a game plan goes, this is obviously the right decision on Sonys part. I would much rather see them keep the game on sale, then remove it from the store all together. It’s also a very popular game, they would have never removed it.

      Capcom employee!!! j/k Best poossible move they could make with this exploit, but still not the “right” decision. The right decision would to be to deal with actual piracy, which as of yet is none… atleast not any that all of us are partaking of.

    I know we’ve been tough on Sony lately and I think Sony is actually starting to come around. They realize that most of us that have VHBL are not using it for piracy, in fact, none of us are because we can’t. We’re just using the devices that they made even better than they thought they could be.

    I’m hoping that they don’t block it because this gives me more hope for a much better Sony that we can trust. In the Android scene, we’re starting to see it where manufacturers are listening more and more to the people about unlocked bootloaders. Hopefully Sony is doing the same with us. I’ve got a little bit of optimism here; Sony, don’t fail us.

    I prefer 1.81 than a useless VHBL……….

  7. dert says:

    if some one has a 1.81 vita, can they get me they make me a dump of the files sent to psn using charles web debugging proxy; so i can compare them to the 1.80 files

  8. madphx says:

    Confirmed VHBL will not load once you update to 1.81. I load up the game select download and they you get an error message.

    For those of you who don’t want to lose VHBL DO NOT UPDATE!

  9. quetz says:

    i don’t get why sony wants his followers and fans to hate them

  10. svenn says:

    “fact Sony hasn’t removed Monster Hunter from the PSN points to VHBL getting blocked” I disagree. there was a time before VHBL, and I cannot believe that sony is that short-sighed.

  11. cuppajoe says:

    Why does the front page show 81 comments but only 9 here?

  12. quetz says:

    i noticed that you have to update in order to play online games and some apps, and access playstation store. browser works good, twitter too, skype even. facebook don’t.

  13. jamesssss says:

    All I can say, f*** you sony!

    What new feature have you added to this downgrade? last time I lost the ability to change user accounts with my memory card whats this one do? burn my PSN account permanently to the PS Vita so that I can never change it again or sell the damn thing.

    Why do they make such great hardware and then hate there customers so much? makes no sense to me.

    • yyy says:

      Nothing was added here, expect blocking VHBL and maybe some stability fixes. I’ve had my Vita freezing on me a few times, only time will tell if i will notice it in 1.81 as well.

    I just put my Go on eBay. I just don’t have the time anymore… I seen the receipt and I got it in ’09. I hardly even play it.

    • Jd8531 says:

      How much? I’ve actually kind of been wanting another go

      • jlo138 says:

        I’m asking $300 with best offer option. It has 46 PSN games and three 16gb M2 Sticks. I also include all the games backed up on DVDs with licenses (in case of accidental deletion). 6.20 OFW. Plus two aluminum shells, RCA and component out cables, original charger. Adult owned and is in excellent condition. Screen protector since day one. And all manuals etc with original box. I don’t ship outside of the U.S though.

  15. jayfelice says:

    I’ve never had my Vita freeze on me, and I use VHBL. If you have your Vita freezing, I would get it checked out and get a new one or have it repaired by someone.

  16. tatsuya says:

    i have update 1.8 but it seem dont block psn ;)
    but they remove the urbanix game :(

  17. Mr Jack says:

    It won’t block you from using the vita. Maybe the psn but not the vita its self.

  18. 123 says:

    Madden is a game made by Electronic Arts, it is not made by Sony.

  19. icebox says:

    “Sorry Sony. I’ll take WTH over your overpriced half *** games.” +1

  20. ZorakTorok says:

    That the name of the game to stay with psn. Open cma works without an update. No one forced you to update or buy the game. Had you read the disclaimers posted all over the place you would have noted that the patches come very quickly and vhbl wasnt even guaranted to run on the game you bought in the first place. You bought a game and you still have it… Just not the underlying bonus you decided to remove by updating. Seriously, who are you mad at?

  21. ff6man says:

    Quit whining.

  22. no no no says:

    Your tears taste so incredibly delicious. If you didn’t know this was a possibility when you first bought a game for VHBL you deserve the pain of every capital letter you just typed. Please do the world a favor and smash your computer and Vita with a hammer and go play with a ball of yarn or some other comparable piece of technology that your primitive brain can actually handle.

  23. cuppajoe says:

    What the heck did you expect to happen? If you don’t realise that an update will patch VHBL it is your own fault.

  24. Jd8531 says:

    >Can’t use CMA
    >Open CMA has been posted about plenty of times
    >I told you in my post not to update to 1.81

  25. 123 says:

    You talked about Sony and their games, and from hen Madden. Thought it was worth mentioning it.

  26. 123 says:

    “and then you mentioned Madden” is what i ment to write, sorry for typos.

    There are always going to be people who do not pay attention, Yet will blame Wololo and Co. for their mistakes.
