    Neat, they found another method instead of the exploitable games on PSN. I hope they can improve it further.

    I love how the entire article is written incredibly sarcastic.

    Honestly I don't see a big deal about emulating old games from the nes,snes,gba era but thats me,i'm sure companys just love continuing to try to get people to buy old software for more $$$...

    Why would this lead to increase in sales? Everything else can already emulate everything as it is...3DS'll get there eventually. Most phones can already emulate anything up to PS1/GBA. I doubt the Vita is powerful enough to perfectly emulate N64/Gamecube/anything else. So...no, I don't think this will make any kind of big deal.

    I just bought (actually it was a gift) a JXD S7100 two days ago for this same purpose, and now emulators start appearing on PSVita. :ffffuuuuuuu:

    To be fair, the DS can already emulate nearly every well-known 2D machine around (assuming you have a Supercard DSTWO that is), so basically the 3DS is currently superior to the Vita in terms of emulation.

    The Vita hasn't been hacked yet. This is NOT a hack. This was done with the PS Suite.

    The problem is that SONY might not approve it

    This will never get approved for whatever Indie market they have. Sony is not stupid enough to let it through and incur the lawsuits therafter.

    Well Apple and Google have approved them in their respective stores so why SONY can't other than Nintendo is their main competitor(handheld). It could rise the sales of the Vita.

    I might be mistaken, but as far as I know there is no GB(A) emulator in the App Store. The are a few available via Cydia if you have a jailbroken iPhone, but that's not Apple's fault. From Googling a bit, it seems they are not allowed in the App Store because you can't have apps that execute code from outside the app itself (ROMS). The Android Market doesn't have this limitation, so there are emulators available there. I'm not sure if Sony is willing to take the risk of having emulators on PSN, though.

    There is a Commodore and ZXSPectrum emulator on the AppStore but they'll have been created with official approval of all parties. As for the Google Market they're walking a fine line, didn't a few get taken off a while back?
    Besides as old as the NES is, would you want people playing your competitor's games on your own console?

    The day Sony approves of any hacking is the day hell freezes over.
