If you’re one of the lucky people running an eCFW such as TN CEF, or ARK, or maybe VHBL on your Vita, or simply if you own a PSP running a Custom Firmware and are looking for good homebrew games, look no further. Here is our ranking of the best 10 homebrews this month, as voted by you.
Reminder: you can add your own homebrews to our /downloads Database, and vote for your favorite ones. This doesn’t require any login.
No huge surprise this month, but a few new welcome additions.
10. PSP Revolution
You’ll never truly understand life until you’ve played Dance Dance Revolution… PSP Revolution will of course not give you the same physical experience, but is still a nice challenge for your fingers. Still one of the best musical games on the PSP to date, and it’s a homebrew

9. CEF 6.60 TN (Vita only)
Many Vita owners have been enjoying homebrews in the psp emulator for a while now, since the first release of VHBL more than a year ago. But Total_Noob’s CEF stepped the game up by introducing full psp homebrew support, plugins and backup supports on the Vita. This is still limited to the lucky people who are able to get the exploitable games in time, but CEF is the most popular eCustom Firmware for the Vita even today

8. Vita Pr0xy
Skfu’s tool is a proxy and as such will work a bit like Charles proxy, except it has a few additional features dedicated to the Vita. All in one, the perfect companion if you are trying to stay on a lower Vita firmware.
7. Yifan Lu’s openCMA
An alternate to Sony’s Content Manager Assistant, this version of openCMA lets you, among other things, to copy files from and to your vita without being connected to the internet. And this is for Linux (for Which Sony does not provide any support)
Wagic is an heroic fantasy card game inspired by a famous TCG. Although I personally haven’t been updating Wagic in a while, our devs team is still maintaining the SVN code, and our community is still adding new cards regularly.

yMenu is one of the many menus for VHBL. It is efficient and pretty sexy.
4. Open CMA
The patch from Virtuous Flame that lets you copy files from and to your Vita without having to be connected to the internet. Yes, having to be constantly connected just to copy files is stupid and unnecessary, as proven by the popularity of this tool.

Lamecraft never leaves our top 10 for very long, it was the surprise homebrew of the Genesis competition we organized in 2011, and remains one of the best psp homebrews there is. And, until Minecraft finally gets its port, it is the closest you’ll get to play Minecraft on your PS Vita (or your psp, for that matter).
2. PSP Guitar
A new comer in our monthly ranking. This is a fairly old homebrew, but I guess classics never die
1. Pro CFW
The PSP is not supported by Sony anymore, but still has lots of users. Pro CFW is the most popular custom firmware, works on all models of PSPs with the latest firmware, and unleashes the power of your console. You can check our install guide here
Keep voting and adding your homebrews to our community database! Apologies for the time it took me to review the latest entries this year, I’ll try to be more diligent moving forward
