    I got an unopened Vita for Christmas. My friend didn't want it so he gave it to me. I don't know if I should keep or trade it in but I already have a 3DS + Gateway, Gaming PC (i5-4690k + R9 280), and Wii U.

    Any good games for it? I'll keep it if I can I hack it.

    I'm going to keep it. I see a lot of anime games on this system and I'm a huge weeaboo.

    Can it be hacked though? I have the borderland bundle and it's on 3.01 apparently?

    You can hack it for running PSP and PS1 ISO. No native Vita hack though.

    do not upgrade it any higher then 3.18 firmware or you will miss out on all the fun stuff thats in the pipeline...

    you can get it to play any PSP and PS1 roms, and all the old emulators, GBA,SNES,NEs etc....

    There's two cases in which you'd want to buy a Vita.
    1. You're interested in anime/weeaboo games
    2. you want portable indie games

    If you fit in either of those categories it's a great console.

    Late reply because I was busy hacking my vita. I did the Talkman Tokyo hack and everything is up and running. Now I just need to know how to transfer my ISO to my Vita?

    I personally have a vita and it's big on JRPG's anime type games. Try danganoranpa as it's a really good visual novel game and I really enjoyed the story. Freedom wars is also a monster hunter clone, but a very good one. Finally there's Persona 4 Golden, and that game is the cream of the crop for the vita. I've easily put over 100 hours into that game.

    Soul Sacrifice Delta, if you like games with fucking mountains of content. I haven't got Delta yet but the original had a ton of content and massive amounts of free DLC.

    Muramasa Rebirth, if you haven't played it on Wii. Well even if you have, there's some cool DLC for it. You can be a cat girl. (i've beat the cat girl DLC like 100% and barely touched the main stories haha)

    Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward, if you haven't already beat it on 3DS. Though it's superior on vita regardless.

    Ragnarok Odyssey Ace, if you like action games or ragnarok online references

    Tales of Hearts R, if you like Tales games. It's fantastic, i'm playing it right now.

    Sorcery Saga, it's the most adorable game on the vita. So goddamn kawaii.

    Probably way more but I ran out of time to think of more. The vita has a ton of great games.

    No hentai game on any console/handheld system starting at 6th generation (DC/PS2/GCN/XBOX). That's when system manufacturers enforce zero tolerance on hentai game.
