    The new Vita has an LCD screen as opposed to the original's OLED screen. Some people like the new one better and others like the old one.
    You will not brick your Vita if you try to access the Store. It will just ask you to update, which you shouldn't do since that would make you lose the hack. Even if you were to update the hack just would stop working, but your Vita wouldn't.

    I'd recommend: Gravity Rush, Persona 4 Golden, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Muramasa Rebirth, Disgaea: Absence of Detention and Dead Or Alive 5 +.

    If you've never regularly used a Vita with it's OLED screen before, the drop in "quality" of the LCD screen would be alien to you.

    1. I heard the screen is almost if not close enough to the OLED to not bother most people.
    MicroUSB charging is a HUGE plus.
    the touchpad is smaller and the grip areas increased to make touching the touchpad accidentally a lot less frequent (it happens a lot for me on the Fat)

    2. the PSP Mode (PSP Emulator) of the PS Vita can be hacked via running a exploit via a PSP Gamesave, same as with the fat PS Vita.
    No PS Vita mode (Native) exploits/hacks exist at the moment. the only known one was patched a while back too and did not lead anywhere.)

    3. once it is hacked, Sony will probably ban the PSN account of anybody running homebrew or hacks on their vita (excluding PSP Mode hacks)
    they will not brick it as it would end badly for Sony if they did as multiple governments would sue them, especially Europe. they are big on consumer protection. some people actually got partial refunds for their PS3's when Sony removed "OtherOS" from the PS3 even.

    4. Pretty much the same list as Arizato. I would recommend these games on top of that list,
    (not in any sort of order or rank)
    1.Metal Gear Solid HD Collection: It plays pretty good on the Vita
    2. Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time: Plays good on the Vita. reminded me of what the Vita is about, Console quality games on the go. it's framerate is not 60 like the PS3 version, more around 25-30 but still enjoyable.
    3. if you like racing games, Wipeout 2048: It is a lot better than Wipeout HD and Fury on PS3 (at least I think it is) . it also includes HD and Fury content too and has online multiplayer.(never tied MP yet)
    4. if you like Ratchet & Clank, and or hybrid tower defense games, then Ratchet & Clank: QForce (known as "Full Frontal Assault" [FFA] in the US, and possibly other regions) it has ok framerate (~20-30fps) but , the PS3 version is still superior running at 60fps)

    Games to AVOID:
    Jak and Daxter HD Collection: annoying input lag on Jak and Daxter and poor framerate (~15-25 fps), second and third games run a bit better and have no annoying input lag but still has poor framerate, but not as bad (20-30 fps).
    If you want to play Jak and Daxter, get the PS3 version. All 3 are are buttery 60fps and do not have any input lag. I ended up selling the Vita version and getting the PS3 version.

    They can't know if your psp mode is hacked. Only PS vita mode. But a vita mode hack doesn't exist at the moment.

    As for best CFW I would say total noob. But you have to be on firmware 2.61 or below. All exploited games for 3.0.1 have been removed from psn.

    hmm actually R&C Qforce is called Full Frontal Assault in USA(UYA was the third game) and runs at 30 fps on PS3. Vita version is rather broken: runs at 15/20 fps, it's bugged and the camera controls are terrible.
    imo it's MUCH worse than the Jak and Daxter trilogy. Jak 2-3 are flawed, but playable. First one is bad for the aforementioned reasons (input lag and bad framerate)


    my suggestion, based on what I played since I got it


    Gravity Rush
    Wipeout 2048
    Hotline Miami
    Velocity Ultra
    Rayman Origins(and Legends too, though I still haven't played that)
    Motorstorm RC
    LBP

    Other games I haven't played yet and that I heard to be good: Guacamelee, Tales from Space, Stranger's Wrath HD, Uncharted, Stealth Inc, Dokuro, Sly 4, nfs Most Wanted, AC Liberation, Killzone Merc and Tearaway


    Oh and avoid the Lego games - they're just the DS games upressed

    /facepalm . how did I mess that up, I actually played all of them so I must have been half asleep when I mentioned UYA.

    I did not realize FFA was 30fps on PS3, I have not played it much as i have been busy with finishing A Crack in Time and Into the Nexus.
    thanks for noticing. (goes off to correct post)
