    The Ps uses cartridges, just like the 3ds and so on. is anyone developing or trying to develop a vita flashcard? i know it uses some data you have to install, so it might have to be similar to Sky3DS. or is there any specific reason that a vita flashcard is irrelevant/close to impossible? Leave your thoughts, and if there's something i've missed out on, please inform me!

    Is it even worth it? Are there decent enough games on Vita that actually warrant a flashcart? Just asking :P

    I don't think so. It is confirmed that, you need to insert gamecard everytime reboot your Vita and the game shouldn't be on PSN.

    but he might find a further exploit so that you will need the game cartridge only once, if he does, it's surely going to take some time

    Easily about as many as on the 3DS and they keep coming, it's just a matter of whether you enjoy the library or not.

    While thats widely a matter of opinion, I would say so, if not just whats native to the Vita itself. I would love to have a way to use emulators (I know, just a flashcart isnt going to change that) but you get what I mean. There are a few PS1 games that wont transfer over to the Vita, as well as some PSP ones. I would love to see a flash cart fix that issue.

    As for actual Vita stuff, I kinda feel bad to get indies and stuff for free. I like the games they are making and want them to make more. Maybe I am growing up, but I would rather use a flashcart for expensive 3DS games.

    Just like the 3DS, someone is going to have to find a kernel exploit before the original flashcart comes out. And if some piracy company does find a kernel exploit, I'll gladly reverse it.

    I love to buy games and support developers, but if some company made a flashcart or some sort of piracy, I wouldn't mind using it.
    The Vita's cartridges are quite secured, yes you can dump them, but the licenses are (probably) the only thing stopping pirates from making a move.

    Is a flashcart even possible with the small size of a Vita card in mind? I mean all the electronic stuff needs to fit inside the small space.

    Well you dont need to fit everything INSIDE, actually, i wouldn't mind having a little round chunk of plastic, maybe 1cm in size, sticking out of my vita.
