    Nope. You can play any psp games and any PS1 games (without sound for psx) using ark and can also use some emulators.

    I forgot
    No. 3.60 is the only firmware that supports Henkaku. You could buy it, and then replace the motherboard with a 3.60 or lower one bought from various places online. They're usually fairly cheap, $30-$60 or so depending on the model.

    $25? , its worth it definitely , just replace the motherboard , it'll be cheaper then buying a exploitable PS Vita .

    I would say follow @Tom Bombadildo advice and buy it and replace the mother board with a 3.60 if you aren't afraid to work a bit. If your keeping it on 3.63, Just use psvimg tools to install ark. There's a guide on hackinformer somewhere how to do it and it's pretty pain free.

    Is it a 3g model? Yifan is working on a micro SD adapter for 3g models.

    Also still if you have to pay around $80 for the Vita and motherboard that's still a killer price since I've seen 3.60 Vita's for $150 on up on eBay.

    Yes it is a 3g model, last year i sold my ps vita slim in germany for 100€ because the version was too high and now i dont think its worthy to get this old model for 80$

    It's definitely worth it, especially being a 3g model. Buy it! If not one of the other tempers will beg you to buy it for them. :P

    A vita for $25 it a steal! That being said, I'd be wary af and test it in front of the seller. Make sure all buttons/sticks work properly, battery appears to hold a charge etc. If it's good, buy it. Then buy the mother board. Then sit and wait for yifan's 3g board to release.

    Here's some pricing for you:
    motherboard
    3g to micro SD adapter
    Well, looks like the early bird ones are gone. I can't tell if there are any others available since I'm on mobile, but I bet they're about $30.
