Pong for the Vita Native exploit, by Barnabe42
Although we haven’t talked about it recently, progress is still happening on the Native side of the force.
/talk user Barnabe42 played with the Test_Motion sample that was added to Vitasploit back in December, and he posted a screenshot of a working Pong game running through the Vita native exploit.
You might remember that I had promised a $20 PSN code to the first Pong homebrew to work on vitasploit, and it appears we have a winner.
Unfortunately, my 2.60 Vita is on a boat somewhere between Japan and the US right now, so I cannot test the result. Barnabe42 was kind enough to share the source code with me, and you can download it below.
He emphasized that this has only been tested on firmware 3.18.
If you guys can confirm in the comments section that this works fine, I’ll definitely send Barnabe42 his PSN code asap.
And yes, I realize that to the trained dev who has dug a bit into the native hack so far, this is “only” an additional sample showcasing the features of the motion control, but I feel that, from the perspective of the end user, this is the first actual playable native homebrew relying on Vitasploit.
Please report success or failure. Would love screenshots and/or videos!
