Sony PS Vita homebrew loader arrives, requires pulled game

Sony PS Vita homebrew hack available in Japan

A homebrew software loader for the PS Vita that allows older games and those from other systems to be loaded onto the portable console has been shared by hacker site Wololo. Sony has already taken steps to reverse the exploit, though, which first requires users to load the existing PSP title Motorstorm: Arctic Edge (Raging Ice in Japan) first. Sony has simply taken the downloadable title off its PS Vita store, however.

The hack isn't compatible with Vitas registered in the US. The developer indicated he would release Vita Half Byte Loader (VHBL) files, which is the program required to run homebrew files. Sega Genesis titles have so far been tested on the modified console.

The first similar such hack on the console was seen late last year. [via Engadget]
