    Hello everyone ( sorry if I make miskates, I'm french )

    In view of recent advances on the matters of PS Vita hack, I wonder if it's better to buy a PS Vita and hack it with HENkaku or thanks to the Rinnegatamante's Anti-Blacklist and HENkaku, to buy a PS TV ?

    Thanks in advance. :)

    It depends on how much can you afford.
    PSTVs are really cheap. You need to buy a controller and a memory card separately (well, depending on if you buy a bundle or not), but it's still much cheaper than a Vita.
    Although, if you can afford a Vita, then go for it!

    ut2k4master : 90% works I think and updates are to come.

    smileyhead : I have already a PS3 and PS4 with each controller, but PS Vita games interest me, I can buy both but that would be throw money down the drain.

    I have to make a difficult choice. :angry:

    If there are a lot of games you want to play on it then go with a Vita, if there are only a few games you want to play it might not be worth it. It's up to you (and your wallet) to decide whether it's worth it to you.

    A PS4 controller is the best you can use with a PSTV, since you can use the Touch Pad as the Vita's Touch Screen and rear Touch Pad

    You can hardmod it, but there's no dedicated cable (or port) for HDMI output that I know of.

    Your difficult choice is buying on as soon as possible or keep waiting, and the prices will rise higher and higher. Your buying a console for homebrew and piracy which henkaku can do now. You're not the only one obviously so of course with sudden demand, is not gonna be no cheap thing the longer it becomes more desireable and less available. Sony ain't making no more so.... Yeah. Is been out for 4 years and now people suddenly feel the need to have it since Henkaku became a thing. Good luck with that.:teach:

    The solution to your "I want both" dilemma is both. You can just move the memory cards between them and continue.

    If you want a handheld, but the Vita. If you want an under-the-TV box, but the PSTV. That's pretty much all there is to it.

    You can get a PSTV for peanuts literally.
    Why not get both?
    Play the games you can't play on PSTV on the Vita and the ones you can on the PSTV.
    Alternatively, what has been suggested previously, swap your memorycard between the two.

    Get a PSTV at the very least considering the price and if you can afford a Vita get both.

    Get both. You can take your games including emulators with you then when you get home play on the tv with the aame memory card

    Between insane and insecure
    Go with the Vita. The PSTV is just a crippled Vita and not even portable!

    Go with the Vita since that has more options due to Henkaku. But if you want to play them on the big screen and don't mind not being able to take the games Everywhere, then PS TV would be fine.

    Some where alone watching anime and crying
    Although the PS VITA 1000 has a screen resolution dialer/ adapter for 720p or 1080i they never released it aka the mystery port next to the game cartridge slot. I don't really play on TV, I'd prefer to be on bed and play so I think Vita is better but since you have ps3 ps4, there will be legit games that you bought on psn that give u a copy for ps vita, so I'd go with both. One for legit legal game usage and other for you know what. If you must just buy one I'd say Vita, Oled, having such display on hand held is mind blowing

    The games that don't work with whitelist do work with antiblacklist. Though to be fair. The psTV isn't sold it the west anymore. I'd be surprised if they're cheaper than a Vita right now. You can grab a used psvita for 40 bucks these days.
