Just like my previous article, I have decided to do it on technology that has impacted the games industry more than English people like tea (I’m allowed to, I’m British. Yes, I do love it). Read the rest of this entry »

The Playstation Vita was out more than a year ago worldwide, and we have yet to see a native hack publicly released. I can see several reasons for that and will try to describe them here.
Less than 24h to go before what is expected to be Sony’s PS4 announcement in New York. In order to tease for the event, Sony has published a few videos showcasing the history of the Playstation Brand. the PS1, PS2, and PS3 videos last week were followed by a PSP and Vita video yesterday. Today, the video talk about some of the most successful games on the Playstation platforms.
Sony is expected to announce the PS4 in a public event tomorrow in New York. In the meantime, they have been publishing videos to show the history of the playstation brand. With the PS1, PS2, and PS3 last week, they are completing the hardware series with a short presentation of their portable devices, the PSP and the PSVita.
Here is a huge post with the most popular 50 homebrews and tools of this year for the PSP and the Vita in our database. We’ve also added a few PS3 ones for good measure. If you are new to the PSP/Vita scene, or if you’re looking for some exciting new content to try, this is what you are looking for! The homebrews are in no specific order, but organized by categories. You can find more homebrews on /downloads, and don’t forget to add yours, and to rate your favorite ones. No login is required!
Most of the homebrews are compatible with both the PSP and the vita (in the case of the vita, you’ll need to run VHBL or CEF)
Software usermode exploits on the PSP have always been either about exploits in a game (generally a buffer overflow), or exploits in one of the embedded libraries such as libtiff. Exploits in games had the inconvenience that it often meant buying an expensive game that you might not end up really playing, but sometimes it was well worth it. The overall idea was to make sure to buy a copy of the game that didn’t have a patch for the security hole (in hindsight, the games were actually not patched, their metadata was just slightly modified to require a higher version of the Firmware, and the firmware is where the patch was). As long as you didn’t update your firmware and were able to buy one of the “golden” UMDs somewhere, you would be able to enjoy a HEN, a downgrade, or a CFW.
The Vita has been out for almost a year now, and seems to still have a hard time convincing gamers (although Sony announced that Black Friday has been good for PSV sales). The PSP is obviously on a decreasing trend, but, 7 years after its initial release, remains a solid platform with a huge library of games, as well as decent multimedia support (including skype). And it still sells numbers comparable to the Vita every week globally!
In the past few months we have seen the release of a new kind of homebrew system. We have seen applications which allow you to safely download the best homebrew from a single program. These alternatives to the Playstation Store are really catching on. We have 3 projects on this site which do this – The Homebrew Network PlayStop Network and BrewNET.
While I generally don’t talk about homebrew apps here, this one got my attention.
The PlayStop Network allows you to download VHBL and CEF homebrews, ready to be transferred to your Vita with not much hassle. Similar to PSN, only on your PC.
This is a tutorial on how to record your own PSP Gameplay video. Maybe most of you know but I hope someone doesn’t know and can learn from this. First thing we need is a PC, second thing a PSP, third thing a CFW on our PSP and last thing, a PSP Game. Okay, once you have got all that you can carry on.
I created this video tutorial for people having trouble writing a binary loader with a psp exploit.
Want to know how LuaHM7 was created? Or even the old Lua Player? Or do you only want to create your own? Well today I’m going to show you how!
I once read a user post asking if it was possible to hack the vita using ps1 games. While the answer is simple and small: it’s possible but useless, I want to give people a more in-depth view of the pros and cons of doing so.
