VitaStick – Use your Vita as a USB controller!


I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

    works perfectly! tnks xerpi

    Does this make the Vita appear as an HID game controller or as an XInput device?

    Hey i have a question, irrelevant to this post but, very important. Do all black ps vitas still ship with or below 3.60 or do the new black ones have 3.63? I cant find a credible source.

      I would prefer to get a new ps vita rather than a used one, that is why I ask.

        While it’s not within the scope of this article, all boxed Vitas in Europe/NA should be on 3.60 or below. Buy a bundle if you’re paranoid. Don’t buy a refurb Vita from Sony. Used Vitas aren’t too bad considering that a battery replacement isn’t too hard.

    Can I plug it to my Android Tablet to play games?

    Xerpi does indeed do great things but personally i think its wiser to use a wired xbox 360 controller (25€) and spare my analog stick and buttons for playing on the vita itself

    It would be so nice to have a plugin like in the good old psp era where you could connect your PS Vita to your PC to Play your Games on your Monitor!

    But its actualy impossible 🙁

    Great feature. Would be awesome to use a PS Vita connected to a computer and use it’s (touch)screen also. Nice alternative to the Wii U Controller for CEMU or as the second screen for DS Emulation… ^^

    I wonder if they’re working on wireless capabilities. That would be insanely great.

    Doesn’t work for me. Does this interfere with QCMA drivers?

    Holy ***! It works *** PERFECTLY! I just tried it with a special version of ZSNES I use with a friend on my Hackintosh, and it works a charm! Very reliable too! Thanks Xerpi!!!

      be sure to write:
      below the first “*KERNEL” on the “config.txt” text file
      then “reload taihen config.txt” from settings or just restart the vita.
      If that didn’t work try reinstalling/updating henkaku(taihen) via the vita browser
      and same for the offline installer(email app).
