The main deal this week is the Playstation 4 Bloodborne bundle at $399: For $399 you get a new PS4, Bloodborne, The Last of US, and a $20 Amazon gift card. That’s about $100 in savings right there. And given that Bloodborne is getting extremely positive reviews so far, this game alone could be the reason to get a PS4 this year.

Additionally, the First episode of The Wolf Among Us on PS3 is FREE, and you can find more deals below:




More offers can be found on the Amazon videogame deals page.

Stack your consoles and become famous (also, win a $20 PSN Code!)http://wololo.net/2015/03/28/stack-your-consoles-and-become-famous-also-win-a-20-psn-code/ http://wololo.net/2015/03/28/stack-your-consoles-and-become-famous-also-win-a-20-psn-code/#comments Sat, 28 Mar 2015 01:38:31 +0000 http://wololo.net/?p=24690 Alright.

This might be the stupidest contest I’ve ever organized, but thanks to the people on twitter who started this dumb thing, now I can’t get it out of my mind, and I feel it’s too stupid and fun to ignore:

Today a few fellows on Twitter started posting pictures of their consoles stacked together. And I feel everyone should participate in the fun.

So here’s how it’s gonna go:

Tweet a picture of your stacked consoles, with hashtag #StackYourConsoles, and ideally include me (@frwololo) in your tweet.

I’ll choose a favorite, say, early next week (ok, more precisely: let’s say Tuesday – March 31st –  US time, which might be Wednesday in other countries – and no, this is not an April’s fools), and the winner gets a $20 PSN code. How does that sound?


I don’t know what my favorite will be yet, be creative, but keep it clean!

Oh, waiving my responsibility here: I won’t be responsible if you break your stuff!!! Have fun, but don’t stupidly break your gear!

Bubbles³: Yet another way of having Custom Bubbles on any Firmware?!http://wololo.net/2015/03/28/bubbles%c2%b3-yet-another-way-of-having-custom-bubbles-on-any-firmware/ http://wololo.net/2015/03/28/bubbles%c2%b3-yet-another-way-of-having-custom-bubbles-on-any-firmware/#comments Sat, 28 Mar 2015 00:54:26 +0000 http://wololo.net/?p=24588 The first bunch of Custom Bubbles, by Tom & mr.gas, had been released for firmwares 3.36 and below, but were patched in PS Vita firmware 3.50.

A second way of using Custom Bubbles surfaced a few days ago. Those second Bubbles can be backed up via CMA & are even working on the new firmware 3.50!

But what if there were a third way of having Custom Bubbles?!

While the actual author of this third Custom Bubble method wants to stay anonymous (for now), he did allow his creation to be shown to the public.

As you can see, those Custom Bubbles behave similar to the released Custom Bubbles (for 3.36), but they are still fully functional on firmware 3.50!

It has also been confirmed that this method of using the Custom Bubbles differs from 173210’s and Tom’s/mr.gas’ methods, which pretty much means that there are (at least) 3 different ways of achieving Custom Bubbles on the Playstation Vita, if not more!

Vita Flaw Key Cool Picture

As of now there are no plans of releasing any kind of Custom Bubbles for firmware 3.50+ (at least not by 173210 or our secret friend), but this might change in the future.

Nonetheless it is still nice to see that there are still ways of running Custom Bubbles on firmware 3.50+, even if the first method has been patched.

Upcoming Ninja release for Vita 3.36 and 3.50. Read the fine print!http://wololo.net/2015/03/27/upcoming-ninja-release-for-vita-3-36-and-3-50-read-the-fine-print/ http://wololo.net/2015/03/27/upcoming-ninja-release-for-vita-3-36-and-3-50-read-the-fine-print/#comments Fri, 27 Mar 2015 15:39:40 +0000 http://wololo.net/?p=24652 As I’ve strongly hinted on twitter yesterday, Qwikrazor87 is going to release his next “unpatchable” hack through  a ninja release on our forums.

If you don’t know what Ninja releases are or how they work, have a look at this thread on /talk. Basically: be good and active on our forums, and the release will come to you before a public announcement. Ultimately, everyone will know about the game used for the exploit, but members of our forum who see the Ninja release will know about it first.

There is a catch to this release: Qwikrazor has announced that in order to run the exploit you will need a second, hacked, device. I know that to many of you, this makes the exploit not so interesting, so if that’s your case, just move on and wait for the next hacker to kindly release their hard work (there is no ongoing plan for another release AFAIK, as of now).

Now, how does the secondary device requirement work? Well, if you’re on 3.36 (the recommended scenario), you’ll need a hacked device (either a PSP or a hacked Vita) to help install a bubble on your Vita. Once this is done, you don’t need the second device anymore.


On 3.50 however, things get complicated: Qwikrazor87 told me you would need the secondary device every time you want to run the hack. Of course, you can put your vita to sleep in order to “keep” the hack in ram, but overall, for 3.50, the hack appears to be more of a technical stunt than an actually useful release.

Bottom line is, if possible, stay on 3.36 or below.

Regarding the “unpatchable” nature of the hack: that is Qwikrazor’s statement and we can’t really predict what aces Sony have up their sleeves. My advice is, if you are already running a hacked Vita, don’t update for now.

But if you’re on 3.50, or better, 3.36, and have no exploited game so far, then this release could be your chance, so stay tuned on /talk.

NTR CFW 2.1 Anti-Piracy Region-Free CFW for New 3DS is now releasedhttp://wololo.net/2015/03/27/ntr-cfw-2-1-anti-piracy-region-free-cfw-for-new-3ds-is-now-released/ http://wololo.net/2015/03/27/ntr-cfw-2-1-anti-piracy-region-free-cfw-for-new-3ds-is-now-released/#comments Fri, 27 Mar 2015 01:15:02 +0000 http://wololo.net/?p=24577 Do you remember the First Custom Firmware for New 3DS? Now it is back and better than ever.

NTR CFW 2.1 by developer cell9 can be used on EU, JP, AUS, USA New 3DS with firmware 8.1.0, 9.0.0, 9.1.0, 9.2.0. As the previous version was JP only, this update is much appreciated. Same as the previous version, you need a retail cartridge or eShop version(JP only) of Cubic Ninja with the same region of your New 3DS and a one time access to internet to use this CFW.


NTR CFW includes features such as Region-Free, game save manager, real time debugging, in-game menu with screenshot option, playing translated games with retail cartridges, plugin support and clean mode (for problematic games with high memory usage such as SSB and MH4).

You have a lot of options with this CFW, you can even update to a desired firmware manually with the way yifanlu describes. Though i wouldn’t suggest it if you are a noob.

I love NTR CFW as it gives neat solutions to people without flashcarts and it is being updated to include more features. I would like it even more if it supported emuNAND for eShop support. I hope it will be added in following updates.

What do you think about this anti-piracy CFW solution? Please share your thoughts in the comments section.
