    I’m glad I bought it when it was only 20 buckaroonies at Gamestop. Hopefully we get a PS1 eBoot loader so I can play some CTR with my bro.

  4. Mk333 says:

    Damn, I’ll kill to get a black Vita TV (aka PSTV). In where I live it’s only in white.

    • Mo says:

      trade? 🙂

      • Mk333 says:

        I would like to! But only if there are no annoying fees, like shipping, custom, or smuggling fees, etc. XD

    • enigma85 says:

      I want the white! We didn’t get that one….

      • Mk333 says:

        The white one is easier to get dirty. One of mine is getting a little bit brown now , and the backside of controller gets ugly too, it got hand mark. I’m planning to use it for Henkaku if I got another Vita TV.

    I managed to grab a bundle with an 8GB card and PS3 controller for $50 last year. Henkaku made me revisit the cute device, I can’t wait until the scene matures. It’s going so fast right now, it’s incredible.

    I found the PS Tv Bundle for 29.99 at Wal-Mart and just the PS Tv for 19.99

  9. Guilherme says:

    It’s cheaper than a PSP

  10. Dee8282 says:

    Would I be able to play emulators with two players or one??

    • neoman4426 says:

      Theoretically it should be possible to do two players, if I recall certain Vita official titles have couch co op on the TV, though it would be up to the devs of a given emulator to implement that if possible, not sure how popular it would be to implement

    • neoman4426 says:

      The skogaby CATSFC-libretro-vita port is the first one (other than the official PS1 emulator) I’ve seen that has support, not sure if links in the comments are okay, but it’s currently the top post on the vitahacks sub

    • neoman4426 says:

      Apparently two player support for the TV has been added to all cores that make sense on the latest nightly

  11. changorro says:

    when i buy it one year ago, in amazon, i think would be a good deal, later, when i can`t use my mexican ps account, i think, well maybe later, .. and that doesnt happen,now, thanks to henkaku we have the possibility to use it how it was suposed to be used, (later jeje, i dont own a memory card yet)

  12. Altus says:

    Maybe someone could port ppsspp as an homebrew if the vita hardware can handle it. and i still wish someone could try to get this one there: http://moonlight-stream.com/

  13. Towa says:

    So I have a PSTV running 3.20 with TN-V installed. Is there any reason to upgrade it to 3.60 HENkaku?

    any benefits at all to this? I know that if I update I will obviously lose psp & ps1 backups for the system, which would be unfortunate, but what exactly would I be gaining?

    Thanks in advance for anyone kind enough to reply.

    • Modasucka says:

      You gain nothing. Cuz you are nothing.

    • #PWNS0NY says:

      Snes9xVita runs at 444mhz speed as well as the old psp 333mhz, I also noticed less screen tearing in emulators with Henkaku over Tn-v11. I updated from 3.36 with TN-V on both my Vita Slim and PS TV to 3.60 and I’m not feeling bad at all, sure I lost psp for now but I have a feeling this is the firmware to be on like when the PS3 was on 3.55. Now I’d like to see Movian get ported to Vita!

  14. Is there anywhere that I can get one for a good price in the UK? Amazon charges £49.99 Used and £60 New.

    • nospam says:

      My local ASDA is selling PSTVs for £29.99, I suspect they’re trying to liquidate the stock as they’ve not available online. Check the clearance racks near the electronics/entertainment aisle in your local.

    • hans says:

      Import it from germany Here its used: 30€ New:40€
      I got meine from an amazon reseller for 35€ New 2 month ago.
      The new ones have Fw 3.20 Used up to 3.60 so it dosent matter for henkaku

      • BlumCoLe says:

        Woooot, 30,-€ for one?

        There are several sales (not now) which give you the chance to catch a pstv for only 15,-€ 🙂 (got 2 PSTVs in november 2015)

  15. Riled says:

    Okay, why would i want to play *** 480p games on my 48″ plasma tv?

  16. Wrozen says:

    Bought one!

  17. Byte says:

    I just wish they had a similar deal on Amazon.ca (so to avoid the cross-border “fee”).

  18. Gr8n00d1e says:

    Bought one on eBay for Cad$39.99 with a extra PS3 Controller.

  19. DJPlace says:

  21. noize21 says:

    was about to buy one, but then i realized you need that ugly ps4 controller to navigate it. no way.

  22. ViviIX says:

    I’ve run Henkaku and the whitelist on my PSTV, but digital games are still not working. I’ve heard conflicting reports on the site about whether or not digital whitelisted games can be played using the new exploit. Is it possible to get digital games working, and if so, what am I doing wrong?

  23. SexySam says:

    bought one today , its on 3.6 – henkaka is installed , but how can I use my vita account with it . I cant link the account without updating the pstv and I don’t have a ps3 for the other method , so is there any way without a ps3 to link my vita mem card and use it.
    please help
