PS Vita: And the new VHBL exploitable game for Firmware 3.15 is…
Hey everyone, as promised we are now announcing the game exploited by developer Wistine for Vita Firmware 3.15.
I believe we’ve mentioned this before, but this game is apparently not available in Japan, US, Canada, among other ones. It is however available in most countries of Europe, and in Australia.
A few weeks ago we announced an exploitable game available only on the JP PSN store, with the VHBL port made by Japanese developer 173210. This time again, people in the US are out of luck, but if you’re in North America, don’t worry as we’ll have something for you very soon.
As usual, we have privately disclosed the game to our members on /talk through one of our now famous “ninja releases”, and are now announcing it publicly so that as many of you can get the game. Hurry up though, as we expect Sony to remove the game from their store within the next 48h (as they typically do).
What is VHBL?
Vita Half-Byte Loader (VHBL) is an open source Homebrew Loader for the Sony PS Vita. It allows to play fan-made games (homebrews) on any PS Vita. VHBL allows to run emulators for the Game Boy, Sega Megadrive, NES, Super NES… and many other applications. You can check a full list of emulators for the PSP/PS Vita here, and more homebrews here.
VHBL runs through an exploit in an official game that needs to be purchased on the PSN store.
So, what’s the exploited game this time?
drumrolls… the Game is the PSP Game “Space Invaders Extreme“. Do not confuse it with any other Space Invaders clone out there. This is not a PSM or a Vita game, it is a PSP game!
We will release Wistine’s files sometimes next week. Stay tuned!
