    Hi,
    I would like to play my vita games on TV. So I thought of buying a pstv but I am wondering something. If I put my PSTV and my vita under henkaku with the same account and just put the memory card with all my stuff in the vita when I want to play on it and then, put it in the pstv when I want to play on the TV am I gonna have exactly the same Thing (same homebrew, same games, same theme, same saves ...) on both of them ?
    I will not turn on the vita and the pstv without this memory card.

    I do not know if it's very clear, but I hope you understand what I mean. :unsure:

    As long as you use the same account and they're on the same firmware, yep.

    I run with this setup and it's pretty good. Just make sure to take a picture of the layout though, since that isn't carried over with the memory card (if that's something that'd bother you anyway :P )

    Yep, I've got this too, swap the memory card depending on which system I want to play. Only thing is that trophies will not carry over between systems so if you've earned it on your vita you won't see it on the pstv and vice versa. Also system settings are different so you'd have to set that separately on each system too, like internet settings and themes etc.

    As far as flexibility goes it's a great setup, as long as you don't mind waiting to turn it off and on and running the exploit every time you switch. Feels like the Nintendo switch came early :).

    The only bad part about it is that you can't keep your trophies together :hateit::nayps3:

    Well i already have both. I been using the PSTV internal storage for roms and emulators and other small indie games. Installed Adrenaline on it, and bunch of rom and emus, pretty god like. If you ever wanna take your system to someone else house and play roms, is not bad. With that 1GB internal storage is good enough for roms. :P

    Of course since i can't use memory card and internal storage at the same time, but it just means is safer to keep my files secure without worrying about someone messing with it. Also you can use a ps3 or ps4 controller, so yeah, and if you have any of the controller converter dongles like the TITAN ONE (Which i got) You can use other controllers like wii u pro, or wii mote, even a arcade fight stick, or xbox controller, usb or bluetooth, all in 1080I. :D

    I guess to solve the memory card problem, i think once i tried just using a single memory card between the two, i think it works okay, but if you had access to PSN and PS+ it would probably be less issue as you can just send save data to cloud and easily transfer between them. Hope PSN access comes back soon. :unsure:

    Lol It cracks me up that this concept is working exactly like the nintendo switch, granted you're switching sd cards (edit. proprietary sd cards cough*) and not docking the system.

    The Vita is region free, doesn't matter where you get it. As long as the account is the same, it'll work fine.

    Ok thanks. I'll check on eBay If I can found one. Hard to found a ps tv on 3.60 or less...

    I'd suggest opting for a brand new one if you can. Any PSTV unopened is guaranteed to have 3.60 or lower on it.

    I have this setup and it is awesome. Wish they would make a homebrew to use vita as remote for pstv

    Ho my ! Back again ! I thought of something: If I install custom bubbles on my vita (for example psp bubbles or if I change the images of the bubbles), will they be there also on the ps tv or I'll have to do it again on the TV manually?

    And I almost have a pstv on 3.60. Negociation start !
