    Vita means life, and that means the PlayStation Vita lives on, even if fans of the portable console have to do it themselves. As Sony sunsets the PlayStation Store for the PlayStation Vita, a group of three people within the homebrew scene hope to begin a competition to bring attention to the platform. KyûHEN is the work of frangarcj, a contributor to work on the vita3K emulator, 2Old4Gaming, a YouTube channel that covers Vita hacking news, and Samilop, who has written a guide for and worked on various projects regarding the Vita. They're backed by a collection of homebrew and hacking sites, such as Wololo, PSX-Place, and PlayStationHAX, and now GBAtemp would like to showcase their efforts as well.

    KyûHEN's competition will span over two months, giving creators time to make two different types of games, either using an existing engine, or one made from the ground up, a utility or plugin, or a port of a pre-existing game from another platform. Currently the prize pool is around $455 total, with donations open for those interested in jump-starting interest in the PlayStation Vita scene. The contest will end on May 27th, after which a small jury will vote on their favorites of the submitted works. The rules are stated below.

    Vita will never die. It is the next step of human evolution proven.

    Yet it lacks a standalone Nes emulator that still works. You want a Nes emulator? You have to use the PSP one.

    @Chary has wrote, clearly:
    But that possibly is an error, because for Sony it means "killed"...
    I am confused as well, but today is a weird day...

    This is great! But it's a shame that it overlaps with Ludum Dare.

    Link?

    Anyway yeah, the Vita needs a standalone Nes emulator. And no, Pnes doesn't have a Vita version no matter what the Wiki says.

    There is also a PSP event doing at almost the same time.

    The PSP is quite great to play 8 bit games so I hope some emulators get updated. Unlike the Sega Gamegear mini that's too small to be playable.

    Yes, I will be doing a presentation myself on ARK-4 CFW. There's lots of presentations, it looks to be awesome.

    yeah it's great that both aren't dead yet, since we won't have a new successor................

    At this point we're better off trying to develop our own successor to the PSP and Vita.
