The 50 best PSP/Vita/PS3 homebrews in 2012

Here is a huge post with the most popular 50 homebrews and tools of this year for the PSP and the Vita in our database. We’ve also added a few PS3 ones for good measure. If you are new to the PSP/Vita scene, or if you’re looking for some exciting new content to try, this is what you are looking for! The homebrews are in no specific order, but organized by categories. You can find more homebrews on /downloads, and don’t forget to add yours, and to rate your favorite ones. No login is required!

Most of the homebrews are compatible with both the PSP and the vita (in the case of the vita, you’ll need to run VHBL or CEF)

Feel free to report any broken links.

Enjoy!

          Oh yeah can’t go wrong with an ’80′s theme. :D Although San Andreas is still pretty good. Even better when you can modify radio stations you don’t like into those you do. :D

    Hey does anybody tried downloading a game from the playstation store and then transfer it to your computer. After that you will find the game in C:\Users\USRNAME\Documents\PS Vita\APP\3f029c9f3b43f84d. After that you can use it to make copies of it and sell them or just share them with others.
    It worked for me but I dont know if it will work with other people because there might be a license or it is for only your psp.

    It’s not a space shooter, man. Those are people. Or Demons. Or Whatever.

      Fair enough. But it plays like a space shooter, and quacks like a space shooter, so…

    One annoying thing about emulators is that they have 932489234 different builds. I mean, I only found out that Snes9xTYL mecm is the best version yesterday.

    Even now I don’t know what’s the latest version of gPSP (especially because of that drama involving the creator and some Japanese dude).
