    Hey this question may have been asked a few times already but I really need to be sure: does Henkaku allows me to play PSVita backups of any game as long as it doesn't require any software version bigger than 3.60?

    I was hesitant a few months ago about buying a Vita but checking out the actual scene I'm really up to the risk. Emulators and stuff (which is the part that I understood) are a great plus but I'm interested on some old games for this console along with some new ones.

    Yep.
    You can't play 3.61+ games yet.

    Don't want to steal your thread or anything, but what about PS1 or PSP games?

    Is okay as long as you can play <=3.60 games. Thanks.
    As far as I have read, native PS1 and PSP is to come, but there are emulators in the meantime

    TheFlow said he got his new 3.60 eCFW ready in 1-2 months.
    This will enable more features like dual analog and graphic scalers and what not.
    PS1 games should be playable on the eCFW as well.
    If not, Retroarch is there.

    No prob~

    I don't want to complain but...
    Please don't capitalize every letter at the start of a word.
    It makes it annoying to read.

    I was playing Super Robot Taisen Alpha Gaiden (PS1) on retroarch (it plays iso, bin, and even ebooot.pbp files) and the game is kind of slow (slow as in the flow of gameplay, it runs perfectly in terms of technical performance) but with the fast forward function on retroarch the game is 90% better than playing on legitimate psp emulation. Some games work perfectly others not so well, but it's really nice having an alternative.
