If you’re one of the lucky people running an eCFW such as TN CEF, or ARK, or maybe VHBL on your Vita, or simply if you own a PSP running a Custom Firmware and are looking for good homebrew games, look no further. Here is our ranking of the best 10 homebrews this month, as voted by you.

I have a tendency to minimize the impact of the scene on the actual gaming world. You’ll even see me saying that less than 5% of psp users are using a CFW, but once in a while, the industry confirms that we have a significant impact. Today Sony published their numbers for the most sold games on the PSN, and the numero uno in the PSP category is a familiar name
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)
Wondering what you should be running on that freshly hacked Vita or PSP? Here is a list of the best 10 homebrews as voted by you in October 2012.
After having played a lot of commercial games on my PSP, I started getting bored, and forgot my PSP in the far end of my drawer, but a few months ago I found something to “revive” my PSP: Minis.
Here are the best 10 homebrews as chosen by you for the month of July. Remember that you can constantly download and vote for your favorite homebrews on our community database, /downloads, no login is required!
10. Lamecraft (PSP/Vita)
The famous Minecraft clone, one of the most acclaimed PSP homebrews ever, winner of the genesis competition in 2011.
Here are the 10 most popular homebrews as voted by you in June 2012. We just started adding PS3 homebrews to our database, so it is still missing lots of classics for this platform, but feel free to add homebrews (no login required!) to /Downloads and I’ll review them shortly!
10. PS3UserCheat (PS3)
octox0r’s reverse of one of the DRM dongles seems to gather lots of attention lately. Will he help to reverse engineer the infamous True Blue? In the meantime, the PS3UserCheat dongle has become obsolete with this application, which lets you cheat in PS3 games on any CFW.
Here are the 10 most popular homebrews as voted by you in May 2012. Lots of “long time champions” in this list, but a few new comers as well… Enjoy!
This one is still a technical Demo more than a full game, but it already has a few goals, even if it’s lacking enemies currently. In Flyer, you handle a spaceship, and need to destroy targets to progress in the level.
For some of us, the vita has been out for 5 months now. I could talk about how the screen looks great, how I’m happy that Sony put 2 analog controllers on the device, etc… but I’d rather focus on the things that Sony failed to achieve with the PS Vita. In the past 5 months, customers have been patiently waiting for useful firmware update that never came, or simply being updated on some of the promises that have yet to be fulfilled…
So let’s have a look at the 10 things I think Sony should have done better with the Vita, or that should have been improved in the past 5 months.
Here are the 10 most popular homebrews as voted by you in March 2012. The “VHBL effect” is clearly here, with a good share of the top homebrews this month being compatible with VHBL on the PS Vita. Enjoy!
10. Bookr (compatible PSP/Vita)
The PDF Reader for the PSP has been one of the favorite homebrews on the PSP for years, and keeps going strong. The PSP and Vita both lack PDF reading features, and this homebrew is here to fill the void on both consoles.
Last month I gave you a list of the most popular homebrews for January (give those a try!), and this might become a regular monthly post? Today I’m giving you the best 10 homebrews for February, as voted by you guys. Keep rating homebrews and adding new ones on /Downloads!
A few months ago I introduced /downloads, a homebrew database dedicated to organizing the homebrews that can be downloaded on my server, as well as external links. You can rate the downloads as well as add your own homebrews, it’s free and doesn’t even require a login.
I haven’t blogged about PSP homebrews in a while, but it’s great to see the trends of votes, and I decided it would make sense to blog about the homebrews people like, in case your PSP had been collecting dust recently and you’re looking for new stuff to try, or if you simply want to discover some hidden gems. Here are the highest rated homebrew games for the month of January 2012, in reverse order to preserve the tradition of a countdown:
If you like “Top 10” types of posts, this one is for you, and I’m sure you won’t find it anywhere else. This is a chronological list of PSP games in which vulnerabilities were found (ordered by date of exploit release, not release date of the game)…
Come with me, we’ll visit some of the major events in the scene’s history on the way… and as a nice bonus, 2 of the exploited games in this list were never revealed publicly before
A while ago I posted a poll on /talk to ask you for your favorite PSP games. With a bit more than 500 votes, we now have a quite relevant series of results, so here comes.
As I type this, the 6 years old PSP is still the portable device with the best games on the market. Sure, the Nintendo DS sold more units, the PS Vita is coming soon, smartphones are the new kid on the block… but let’s be honest, you can’t really compare Angry birds to the GTA series, or Square Enix’s work.
There’s often a concern that “hardcore” games are much more expensive than casual games. That’s true, but not on a 6 years old device. Now, for very reasonable prices, you can get games that rate somewhere between “awesome” and “OMG”. The PSP itself has become extremely cheap, and is still a very good device.
But let’s dig into the real meat of this article: the best PSP games of all times, as voted by the users

People keep asking for lists of homebrew games that work with HBL. I believe making a full list is an impossible task, especially since we fix bugs on a daily basis, but today I want to showcase 15 homebrews that work great in HBL. These homebrews are of great quality and will give you hours (if not hundreds of hours) of gameplay. I’ve tested them myself on a 6.20 psp go. These games are presented in no specific order.
Please keep in mind that emulators usually require bios files and/or roms that I cannot legally provide. Don’t ask for those here, thanks.
1. Wagic 0.12.1
Ok, I lied, there is an order… at least for the first game . Wagic is an heroic fantasy card game in which you fight against the CPU. As you win battles against your opponent, you earn credits that will allow you to improve your army, unlock sets, and play new game modes. Highly customizable (you can create your own cards, even your own rules and campaigns), Wagic can easily bring you hundreds of hours of gameplay (hell, I’ve been playing it on a daily basis for the past 3 years!), and has already won several homebrew contests.
