    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.

    • Skars says:

      Anyway, thanks TomTomDu80′s for this, and thanks to everyone involved.

    • andre104623 says:

      there is a rumor that snes is working now

      • andre104623 says:

        Also if a eCFW is released it will most likely it will be ported to this game

        • Skars says:

          I believe we are not too far from a big update, I mean so months to go. Due this may not be a good idea to waste a kernel exploid atm.

          But I’m not the one behind the scene, so is just my thoughts..

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

  4. 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.

  12. Kevin says:

    Just bought it from the NZ psn store

  13. 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…

  14. Alexander says:

    just bought it in the US store, still there

  15. Possibly says:

    Still available 8:00pm CST.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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)

  19. andre104623 says:

  20. Ausm says:

  22. REMF says:

  23. 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!”

  24. DaN27 says:

    Mexico 12:40 am Disponible aun!!! 😀

  25. 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.

      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 ).

  33. REMF says:

    Still up in UK Store… darn….

  34. 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.

  35. 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.

  36. GamerMJM says:
