Wow. Thanks to the generous donation of long time PSP scener MadMack, the Revitalize competition prizes have just doubled overnight, with now a total of $900 in cash prizes.
What is Revitalize?
Revitalize is a Homebrew competition for the PS Vita, organized by wololo.net. We expect homebrew submissions to run on the Rejuvenate hack. Anyone with a PS Vita running Firmware 3.51 or below can run homebrews through the rejuvenate hack, which is compatible with the Vita TV as well.
Thanks to MadMack’s donation, the prizes are now as follow:
$400 for the best entry
$300 for the second best entry
$100 for Wololo’s favorite open source entry (this can be cumulative with one of the 2 prizes above)
$100 for the best color emulator (think 8 bit or above, no gameboy/gameboy color)
People have mentioned to me that a tutorial on how to install the SDK, and how to program for the PS vita would be more than welcome. I agree. We have a monthly tutorial contest, and the September edition is about to begin. If you feel like writing a tutorial on how to program homebrews, you’re probably going to do the scene a huge favor, as well as very likely to earn a $10 psn code.
You have until September 30th to submit your entry to the Revitalize competition. Details here.
We are constantly looking for guest bloggers at wololo.net. If you like to write, and have a strong interest in the console hacking scene, contact me either with a comment here, or in a PM on /talk!
