    Idk, a Black Hole maybe?
    Someone allegedly released a .vpk file of official game Tokyo Xanadu, decrypted. A download link for the Japanese version of the game appeared on Chinese forums a few hours ago, and apparently the game runs on Hacked Vitas through HENkaku.

    I cannot link to this for many reasons, but the original link was taken down surprisingly fast. So, I cant find it even if I wanted to.:(

    This may just be another DevKit Leak, like adventure Time. But it's cool nonetheless.

    The leaker claims he has the ability to decrypt any game, but who knows?

    It's not. Running it on my Vita right now.

    The only weird thing is that it has to be extracted to the folder instead of installed using MolecularShell, probably because MS gives you an error on large files.

    you install a VPK which created the program on desktop
    then you move files in the rar to ux0: app (gameid) for the gamedata
    boot up the game.

    Updating the game will make it not bootable anymore because the .vpk content gets updated.

    It's a devkit leak. The fact that you have to do stuff with the ZIP is quite telling.

    Here come the pessimists.

    I've read the Chinese forum from which the vpk originated; A lot of the users believe it not to be a dev-leak, but instead an end-user solution. Besides, statistically, what are the chances of a developer leak of a high profile Japanese game appearing on the Internet? The odds are incredibly in the favor of it being an end-user solution.

    We'll just have to wait and see though. I think it's clear from my post which side I'm betting on.

    Actually, while there are chances for the game to come from a devkit, the fact you have to copy files yourself is not surprising. Vitashell can't handle large files.

    Has anyone really tested MolecularShell with other files over 2GB?

    It has two .vpk files. One of them will install properly, but does not contain the full game data (the Chinese original poster claims it to be the filesize's fault), and the second one is supposed to be just extracted to the folder created by the first one because it adds the data.

    I don't think being a devkit leak has anything to do with the vpk installation process. Besides, if they CAN make a vpk for just the eboot and metadata, they can make a vpk for the whole game as well (assuming MS works with large files well).

    Isn't Vitashell 0.7 supposed to be able to handle larger filesizes? Which is what Henkaku installs now?
    Or is that still way too big?

    Already running this game on my PSV.
    The leaker said he decrypted the game from a cart. And the original poster did said someting about releasing the decrypt tools and tutorial sometime.
    But now the original post has been delected and I wonder if he/she will still release the decrypt tool.
    For those who wonder how to install the game.Simply you got two vpks and first install the smaller one xanado0.vpk through MS or Vitashell,then rename the larger xanado.vpk to xanado.zip and extract it,uplaod all the extracted files into ux0:app/PCSG00608.and you get it.

    Vita Shell 0.7 can handle larger files than 0.6, but 2GB is probably too big.

    Well if this turns out to be real I'll know who to blame when third party devs inevitably drop support for the vita like a rock.

    Yes, because Vita support so far has been excellent, right?
    Anywho, at most we'll miss a few indies, God knows we have enough of them already on the Vita.
    At least now we can be assured that there won't be unboxed Vitas lying around in stores waiting to be adopted like orphans.

    It's not an SDK leak. It's a leak of a dumped game with a decrypted eboot. SDKs are a slightly more different thing. :)
