    Seems that PSP Dev Wololo has gotten HBL to work on the PS Vita. Here's a example of him playing on the megadrive emulator. It's even working on the new fw.

    Remember, the same thing happened to the 3DS.

    Part of me screams "FAKE!"
    The other part of me screams "IT LOOKS ENTIRELY REAL!"

    It's just proof of concept. It looks real, Wololo is a pretty respected hacking guy, I trust him. Definitely read the whole blog post, it's very interesting.

    Wololo's got my respect if that means anything to you guys. :P

    Looks legit, I'm not surprised at the hurdles though.

    I wouldn't mind if that only ran in "PSP-mode" for now, since that would mean we'd have working emulators running on PS Vita around launch date.
    Kind of like how we could run Lameboy and such on 3DS at launch.

    It's by Wololo, who has been a great dev in the psp scene, so I have no doubt that it's real.


    plus we have most of the psp homebrew library on our Vita =D
