A few days ago we’ve told you about the latest exploit game for running the TN-V eCFW at your PS Vita: Fifa (Soccer) 2011 and 2012. Even though it was planned to release the game at a weekend, like we usually do, we (well, the developer of it) had to rush it, because some, let’s call him jerk, jerk had to leak the name of the game and therefore pretty much f#cked up the release for everybody who was patiently waiting.
The developer decided to release the information himself after he heard about the leak, and therefore might saved a few of you guys, even though the games official release (through the developer) was now at a normal week day, instead of the weekend, which then resulted the pulling of the exploit game prematurely. As I am writing this news, the game is getting removed from the PSN stores world wide, this is correct, world wide, not only for the USA and japan, the regions where it was obtainable for the PS Vita.
Considering that it might have been possible to obtain the game via a PS3, and then transfer it to the PS Vita, this seems to be a good choice of Sony, because Fifa 2012 was available in europe – And before you try to lynch us, listen – but only listed as PSP-only, and therefore not download able with the PS Vita. Transfering the game from a PS3 to a PS Vita (Most of the time this does not work, and the game is not transferable) also resulted in automatic applying of the game update, which breaks the usermode exploit, and therefore transfering via PS3 was also a no-go.
Those games were pretty expensive, and we do not like to offer you such expensive exploits, but be sure to understand that we do not decide which games are exploitable and which aren’t. We also have no influence on the price tags of the games and therefore the question should be: Are you willing to pay X.YZ € for this exploit, even though it might not work as intended or does not work at all?
In the End it is your choice to buy said game and we are not responsible for your behavior with said game (losing it, no backups, exploit not working as intended, etc).
In the recent time we were asked for yet another release, which includes ‘insert region that was not included in the last release‘ and maybe for a less expensive game. You do realize that we’ve given you 6 chances to grab an exploit game for the firmware 3.00/3.01 (King of Pool, 101-in-1 Megamix, Battle Arena2, BEN 10, Fifa 2011, Fifa 2012) and that there has to be a time where we have to say No, it has been enough.
I am not deciding if there will be another exploit game, but I personally think (and would argue about it) that 6 games for one firmware should be enough.
Now let us wait for the next PS Vita Firmware update and see if said update will fix more than we would like it to fix.
