    PS Wiita is a free, community built homebrew application, which is designed to play Wii U games on your PS Vita or PSTV.

    Disclaimer
    Code:
    #include <std_disclaimer.h>
    
    /*
    * Your warranty is now void.
    *
    * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead Vita memory cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired for playing too much Mario Kart 8. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this homebrew
    * before installing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
    *
    */
    
    PS Wiita is based on the documentation of Wii U reverse-engineers. PS Wiita does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    Instructions

    First time installing homebrew on your device?
    Download and install Henkaku
    Perform a backup of your Vita memcard (Optional)
    Install PS Wiita
    Get Loadiine-extracted games
    Put them in the "wiitagames" folder on your Vita memcard (this folder will be automatically created the first time you open PS Wiita)

    Broken Features / Known Issues
    • The gyroscope doesn't work. This is still being researched. Hopefully I will be able to make it work in a few days.
      • Some games that rely on the gyroscope, may crash when trying to use it. (Splatoon crashes, for example. Play it with a save, where you already turned gyro-controls off.)
    • Audio may behave weirdly in some games. (Audio emulation isn't 100% complete.)
    • The camera has the same problems as the gyroscope. It'll also be fixed in a few days.
    • Games don't have the best performance (obviously). Simpler games (like Super Mario Maker) have around 10-16 fps, and games like Mario Kart 8 or Splatoon can go even as low as 1-2 fps.
    Extra features
    • The firmware you want to emulate can be set. Lower firmwares generally have better performance.
    • You can set frame skipping, if you want. (May result in choppy audio.)
    • Set up online play if you have an existing NNID (not possible if you already have a Wii U paired with it).
    • Switch between GamePad and TV feed.

    What did you expect? It's a miracle that it even runs. The Vita is much weaker than the Wii U.

    Yeah, homebrews run pretty smoothly, because they aren't resource demanding at all.

    We don't need No Man's Sky for 3DS when we gonna have Super Mario Maker.Because they are similar to themselves ; THEY HAVE NO MULTIPLAYER !
