    Just got a vita and its on firmware 1.61. Thing is should i just update it to 3.18? i looked at this site https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/PSP/PS_Vita_Exploit_Table#1.61-3.15_Exploits and its shows the old firmwares can play certain games. So what the benefit of updating it to 3.18? Dont know much about the vita, only reason im asking is because i see that i wont be able to play the monster hunter games which i want to emulate, but if 3.18 has more feature than its whatever then.

    PS Vita firmware 3.18 is considered the "Golden Firmware"

    You can load PSP ISOs and homebrew and PS1 eboots with full sound compatibility, among other things. Custom bubbles etc.

    That's all depends if you have a method to get the two exploit games onto your Vita which you will have to buy off the PSN first.

    I've been out of the scene for too long, perhaps someone else can chime in here?
