Sony pulls PSP game to stop more PS Vita hacks

Sony has removed Super Collapse 3 from the Playstation Store after the title was found to be vulnerable to a PS Vita exploit. The company removed the game from the store 24 hours after the exploit was noted on the Wololo.net blog, weeks after the same vulnerability was discovered in Motorstorm and Everybody's Tennis.

The exploit lets users run VHBL (Vita Half-Byte Loader), which allows for homebrew software to be loaded onto the handheld console. Motorstorm Arctic Edge and Everybody's Tennis were recently returned to the store following a Vita firmware update, which closed exploits in each game.

Woholo.net claims to have allowed users of their forums to know the identity of the game a week ahead of the latest VHBL update.
