    Hello Im new here so , nice to meet you guys! So Im looking to buy a ps vita but I've searched and seen rumors that's impossible to use isos , downloable games like everybody used to do in psp , it's really true ? When I search for a ps vita game iso only appears to me a damn surey with part of Sony I think. Anyone can confirm me if Ps vita is really hackable like psp was? Thanks!

    As far I know only PSP part of the Vita. I mean you can play PSP ISOS on the Vita not Vita ISOS

    depending on Firmware you can install ecfw which is like the modded psp firmware allowing psp iso/cso gameplay.

    psvita native homebrew is just taking off. only thing I've seen worth while is snes9x ported to the vita.

    "Free" games.

    That's an... interesting term used. "Free".
    Bear in mind that it takes millions of dollars just to make one of those "free" games. To develop it, to bring it to market, to put it out there. And right now, at this point, there are companies that exist where a single game can either keep their families fed, or break their company and have them end up on the street. I've seen some of my favorite developers fade away in recent years, good companies like Cing. They went bankrupt and closed up shop.

    Was it because of the massive amounts of piracy on handhelds the previous generation? Perhaps.

    But I do know that I'll never get a Trace Memory or another Hotel Dusk game ever again.

    Even knowing that, the PSN has frequent weekly sales in which they heavily discount games immensely. I've seen everything from classic titles to contemporary stuff being discounted to less than ten bucks, sometimes even cheaper than that.

    If you can't afford the cost of an Extra Value Meal from McDonalds, you might want to prioritize a bit.

    And, as was mentioned prior, one can always wait for a PSN sale. I've seen everything from Persona 4 Golden to Peace Walker discounted to an almost baffingly low level.
