  20. kevin says:

    thanx man

  21. edu says:

    i just hope that they wont pullout the game fron PS store.. i haven’t topped-up my KSA account yet.. and im sticking to this account, since no PH account is avaialable when creating a new account.. and dear sony, cmon think of it, vhbl can actually increase your sales when customers will know they can play classic games via emulators..

  22. Quhark says:

    Gonna buy it…aand does not accept my card because of international ***

  23. You can’t download it on the ps3 in the store there in the US and don’t want to update the psvita just yet. going to try the psp

  24. shmutple72201 says:

    Had my PSP with me all day at work and just saw this after I went out for some drinks *face palm*

  25. uncharted says:

    not available in us?

  26. pjdevaney says:

    someone please help me i need to get this game but a cant redeem my psn card please help

  27. Rusty_train says:

    incase someone cares, its on au store aswell

  28. When exactly does the files come out?

  29. StanSmith says:

    Sony would be really stupid to pull it from the PSN store until the exploit gets released. What happens if they pull it and the exploit doesn’t get released. They would look stupid if that happened and i know they are already stupid for most things they do but why would they pull the game before something happens?

    What happens if every week we say a new game is exploited then will they pull each game? They would be really stupid if they did.

    Why remove it when there is no reason? They dont have a reason to remove it atm but when the exploit does then they do.

  30. Well I wanted to save the exploit for later on the ps3 but psn just got me twice for 2.99. I did it with the others exploit. Can’t even download it on the the psp to put in the queue. O’ well I’m not updating my psvita to try to get the game when it will not let me get in on the other systems for this exploit.

  31. capcomlegend says:

    yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees! in your face sony …sorry im happy,I love u guys <— no ***! lol thank you ,this time no matter what games come out ,I am not upgrading for shitaki :)good work fellas <3 <—no ***

  32. huz says:

    YEAH Apache Overkill PSN EU LOL

  33. hackinformer says:

    So very one can download it on the psvita in the US? Has anyone tried it on the other systems I know the exploit not made for them. But you should be able to download the mini game on the ps3 like the others.

  34. Oskar says:

    Yeah! In Poland the game is available!

  35. kenny2858 says:

  44. ivo says:

    available be eu but euhm … what is coming out for it except vhbl ? are there lots of usermode exploits or only one game browser ?
    thanks anyhow

  45. kelp says:

    Will tn-v be ported on to 2.06? if so please coment so I can upgrade!!!

  46. naunau78 says:

    IT work in EU (in france) 😉

  47. ivo says:

    hmm and all i really need to start
    watching tv on my handhelds is a
    version of some video disk recorder
    or private video recorder (vdr pvr)

    but a live iso that does analog cards
    cant seem to find one analog live pvr
    all digital and
    manuall install is not for me :(

  48. ivo says:

    tn-v is 202 and below only i guess
    ie needs kernel

    so this is only a psp loader for usermode vhbl

  49. Reamer87 says:

    Allow me to add to this long list of thanks. Here’s hoping that there will be another exploit that can support DaedalusX64 eventually.

  50. Cleber says:

    Emulator neo geo and roms psp compatible?

  53. decade says:

    indonesia store not avaible help…..

  54. ran says:

    please help!
    those of you who did it,
    i opened an mexican account to buy the game, it didn’t let me link it to my ps vita so i restored and linked it (the sony site doesn’t show it even though i activated it).
    how can i buy the game and return to my previous account???

    • kenny2858 says:

      I don’t think you can use more than 1 accounts in your memory card. If you’re trying to ask that… no you can’t, unless you format the memory card and put your other account you want. (Or if you have another one, then you can log in to your account but won’t have the game.)

  80. yahya says:

    Just downloaded .. 23-March-2013 11:10PM +3 timing and it’s in US store … waiting for the files

  81. dan says:

    i was wondering can you still play your ps vita games if you get vhbl without getting banned and also can you play ps1 isos or psp isos because i would like to play my umds and also play ps1 frogger which i own for ps1

    • AsDraS says:

      the exploit happens within the psp emulator part of the vita so your vita works normal after using this.
      a vhbl doesnt suport psp iso’s or cso’s and ps1 does not work too as much as i know because there are no kernel functions available in vhbl but emulators for gbc or gba should work if the exploit is stable. get the next exploit if its a kernel one (with a eCFW) if you want to play them but i dont know if there will be a new kernel exploit anytime soon.

  82. jake says:

    9:38 still available in NZ store

  83. ogdenit says:

    Still available in the US store. 15:38 pm EST

  84. Damian says:

    Perhaps sony gave up and is not gonna pull the game, its been a day already since public announcement and the game is still there, or maybe they think usermode exploit is not enough of a reason to (you still have to pay for vita/psp/ps1). Still all we can do is wait.

  85. Edzo says:

    nice got it. 5:32 est its still up. glad sony doesnt move too quickly cuz id be sc*** being at work all day

  96. Jake says:

    I really want Sony to remove the game…..
    …but I feel sorry for those that haven’t got it…

  97. Shinyoite says:

    Might’ve wanted to give the compatibility issue news a bit earlier… As now this VHBL is pretty much useless to me. :/

  98. mattia says:

    Hi, I have download the minis from the store using the psp mode (TN-V), how can I transfer it on my pc and than copy it in psvita mode?

  99. Alex says:

  101. Omgz King says:

    Oh.. my… bob. Im done waiting on exploits I might as well just forget about it

  102. Stanley304 says:

    I would like to say thank you to TomTomDu80! Awesome job with this VHBL. I want everyone to remember that these devs put a lot of time towards finding and developing these. If it’s not what you are expecting then become a developer and do it yourself. Otherwise please be patient and don’t rush them.

  103. onnz423 says:

    18.15 am still up in eu store

  104. REMF says:

  106. dopefish says:

    still up in AUS market

    • Frogmonkeycloaka says:

      Haha, Yeah nobody really knows about us.. hah

      • Pali says:

        😀 or nobody care, i really dont understand why Sony want to patch this game if u cant run psp games with this exploit, they dont lose sales :), Just the developer of apache overkill get some extramoney 😀 … sry for my english

  107. dopefish says:

    you guys know the time you post is already listed

  108. jake says:

    Actually the time isnt set in our countries time so the time we type ans wololo.nets time is different so we make sure not to mislead anyone wwith incorrect time

    • dopefish says:

      I get that, but surely you just base it on the difference from the OP time and the last reply?

      Guess it depends on how you look at it, sorry I shouldn’t nitpick just because I got confused for a second.

  109. Msnk8 says:

    still available in my region,,,,,bt im still unable to transfer funds to my wallet,,,,3days have passed,,,,,psn service is *** here in india,, its time to quit
    my advice to all whenever waiting for an exploit release und your wallets in advance…sigh

  110. LuKe_AA says:

    Yesterday I just realised I was out of a GBA.

    Problem Solved.

  111. Frogmonkeycloaka says:

    Can’t wait till it comes out though.. i was too late with the other couple of games i bought.. i had looked deep into the other ones but missed a few pages, acted to soon Hah this’ll be my first time on vhbl.. The main reason is for slender portable and Lamecraft. Hopefully you can make it so they work Wololo. Cheers!

  112. Sony says:

    We gave up on the vita, don’t mind us

    • Sony says:

      Is what I think is in there mind

    • Crabwalker says:

      You shouldn’t give up with the vita, you should just give up with vhbl.. there are so many more things you should do with the vita, Such as “Bioshock infinite vita” Just asking, what exactly is vhbl doing to harm sony?

  113. hanada says:

    have it (KSA)

  114. wololo. says:

    The games is still up in AUS

  115. Cris says:

    In Russian PSN it still selling

  116. andre104623 says:

    wow I just woke up its 8:15 AM EST still up in us store

  117. Dudu says:

    Still available in Germany !!
    buyed at 13:20

  118. HeyItsFalcon says:

    This is a longshot, but maybe the delay is for fixes that the current build isn’t able to handle right now. Either way, patience is a virtue.

  119. Steeve says:

    Purchase in France at 15:00…
    Thanks !!!

  120. maaattt says:

    9:40am CST Sun the 24th, just bought

  121. Skars says:

    Still available at US PSN, but I’ll skip that one, since the only thing that I would use on VHBL is SNES Emu, the my PSP can do the job atm.

    Savings for the next kernel, that I believe will not come any time soon, since sony in a way or another is yet to release a whole new firmware with PS Vita Slim after PS4.

    The firmware will probably insert some features to work with PS4, that will be more than mandatory update.

    I don’t expect any kernel exploid release before that, and I’m be patient.

  122. Antonio says:

    y una vez descargadoeljuego,que version de vhbl hay que descargar para ejecutar las isos?

  123. dan says:

    i dont get why when a exploit is released the name is for members first because couldn’t sony members just sign up and find out

    • wololo says:

      Because if they did that, we would find another way for the release. Bottom line, they have better fish to fry, and the way they typically contain the issue by quickly pulling the game is more efficient.

  124. i96744 says:

    8:10am PST. still up US PSN.

  125. onnz423 says:

    8.39 pm still avaible in european store :)

  130. PinkUnicorn says:

    still up in the USA as of 7:30 east coast. Just got it for $2.99. make my psvita worth it please!

  131. Kevin says:

    Just bought it from the NZ psn store

  132. andre104623 says:

    Wow sony is really slacking on taking this game down. When I got SC3 sony took it down in 14-16 hours depending on were you live. We are on day 2 now

    • Frogmonkeycloaka says:

      Yeah, It was a good idea to make apache overkill the bass, cause nobody really cares if it’s taken off the market, so the vhbl haters won’t be hating us for supporting vhbl cause they’re making sony take “good” games off the market…

  133. Alexander says:

    just bought it in the US store, still there

  134. Possibly says:

    Still available 8:00pm CST.

  135. bob says:

    i dont get it way does it make a difference if the files are out or not

    • Seekie says:

      I think it probably just has something to do with last minute fixes and tweeks after more people have tested it. They got the exploit in a working state good enough to released and then made the public aware of the game so they could get it and some trusted people could test it to get some good feedback to fix some bugs. Then again this is just my guess. I’m just as excited for this exploit as the next guy, but we have to be patient. These aren’t easy to find and they are very time consuming to code.

  136. Jon says:

    I believe they are using this as a way to make profits.

    Allow the games to be exploited for a while, under the guise of patching until they get their cash when sales drop boom, new patch.

  137. jake says:

    ^ What he said…..
    I think Sony has realized that most of the exploits aren’t kernels, so these “user-mode” exploits are only helping Sony get more $$$$$ (Cash)

  138. andre104623 says:

    12:01AM EST Still up in us store

  139. Ausm says:

    Downloaded from US store, 6:23 Hawaii region

    Downloaded from US store, 12:08am Central Time.

  141. REMF says:

    i dont see it now in US store. please check

  142. Sony says:

    QUOTE SONY:”We are smart, we lets hackers invest us money, then we patch the exploit and release wonderful app, games, and feature in new update for the people to thirst for them”

    ME:”Why do you have to do that!”

  143. DaN27 says:

    Mexico 12:40 am Disponible aun!!! 😀

  144. stavros says:

    Yeah thanx guys that you released it on Saturday you dont know that the banks are close? the banks in Greece will remain close till today so i lost the exploit.

    • wololo says:

      I know Greece is in bad shape these days, but if you don’t have 3 euros handy on your credit card to buy the game, maybe you shouldn’t have bought an expensive portable console in the first place. As far as the releases happening on the weekend, this is the best we’ve found to prevent an instant reaction from Sony. Last time we released on a week day, the game was removed from the store 8hrs later. Additionally, the Ninja release has been going on for weeks, so if you were a member of our community, you would have had a decent head start (at worst on your Friday morning even if you had joined /talk very recently).

      So, yeah, I’m honestly not sorry at all for what’s happening to you. If you’re lucky, the game will still be around when you get your money.

  145. onnz423 says:

    Apache overkill removed from eu store!

  146. onnz423 says:

      Good luck to everyone else that has the chance to get it.
      Thanks everyone that is releasing this to the public.

    • Stef says:

      Actually, I bought this game yesterday in EU Store, just go to minis and watch at the A

    • Stef says:

      WOW, I was was wrong, but I got lucky, It was about yesterday evening I saw that the next exploit was for Apach Overkill on this amazing website, and I bought the game imediatly.
      I’m sorry guy’s for the bad reply.
      But I can’t wait for the files ( Hoping it is not with survey’s or something, because I can’t do any survey ).

  152. REMF says:

    Still up in UK Store… darn….

  153. Dexter says:

    its out of the store now and they said they will do their best to upload the files once that has happened so everyone please have patients,because they did’t have to do this.

  154. mrcrew says:

    try and hack the memory card that holds the vita games on and turn it in to a r4 card for vita that would be cool.

  155. GamerMJM says:

    Apache overkill: Removed from US store between this time frame: 8:00-9:30 (My time)

  159. Hideo says:

    Hi All,

    Can this exploit run PSP or PS1 isos yet on a 2.06 VHBL System?

  160. RoboGamer1HD says:

    i found it on Canadian Store in the mini’s section through my PS3. if you use Charles proxy you can bypass the update, play online and buy stuff and connect to content manager. I am going to buy Apache overkill now and move it to my Vita. Idk if there as a patch on the game or not cause if most stores removed the game then how is it still on my store?

  1. July 25, 2014

    […] member mr.gas announced today that him and tomtomdu80 (whom you might remember for his VHBL port on Apache Overkill last year) were able to dump the contents of a PS Vita memory card. Although they are not sharing […]
