PSVita has been hacked already.

What are the nicer things supported in the hack I mentioned?

IIUC, homebrews & PSP game backups run just fine. Don't know about PSVita game backups. I'll ask my friend who's an avid PlayStation (PS1, PS2, PS3, PSP, PSVita) gamer & hacker next time I see him.

Sad thing is most devs crowd around iDevices, that leaves things like the PSvita and PSP less developed.

reaaally... I will look into this.  I'm about to sell my modded PSP which has an insane amount of time put in just downloading games that I liked.  

 

the ones I really could always pick up and play were games like Lumines 1 & 2, Patapon 1, 2, 3, Loco Roco, and maybe a couple others.  This makes me feel better about getting the vita, which only has one game I want (Lumines)...and probably FIFA and won't have another for quite a while (little big planet).

I blame the overpriced memory card, there are other problems, BUT I blame the memory card

I also found out that the original psp has the wolfson as well...I believe all models of the psp. I always thought the audio was super clean..just a little underpowered.

Really? I always looked down on my PSP's audio quality and didn't bother to put songs in it...

Clean to me. It like my nexus s phone...nor my new iPod 5.5g I'm guessing since I haven't opened it yet. But yes...compare to all the other cell phones ive tried besides galaxy s phones.... Very clean.

I mean, having a wolfson has gotta count for somethng I think.. Maybe it's under-utilized or has other issues

Some threads on the net talk about really clean sound from the vita. I guess I won't really know since I sold it already without listening to actual music through it. Too much of a hassle and too bulky to be used as a music player....memory too expensive for that also right now.

Well, sound card does not really determine the sound from the player too. The amp and DAC also plays a big part, in this which the PSP has a rather weak amp. Had a chance to test out my PSP and compare to my Walkman A series today, and I find the PSP, although good, to be thinner, less detailed and has slightly less clarity than the Walkman, while the Walkman has a bigger sound and soundstage. But the PSP does a very good job already, and I got to agree, the PSvita and PSP is not worth buying the memory and it's too bulky for a MP3 player.

I got it wrong: just homebrews currently. Hackers are working hard to get PSP game backups running ASAP. Sorry for the misinformation; I should have double checked before posting.

blink.gifnever knew that PSP has such good DAC... I wonder if anyone tried to mod it for line out...

Dude, the vita's screen is ******* massive...

 

Also the Vita is super-restricted because Sony thinks that stopping hackers instead of making games is the key to keeping the Vita alive... morons.
