    The game requires 3.63, so you won't be able to play it on Henkaku.

    Sadly the PSVita is dead and until someone develops an Exploit for Firmware 3.63,we can't play Shantae Half Genie Heroe on the PSVita ;(
    and this will maybe never happen because Sony is **** and the PSVita is dead.

    FW spoofing is not worth the Trouble because I think Sony will take the PSVita Servers down soon.

    It wouldn't do anything, 3.61+ games are signed with a new key that we don't have access to. There's currently no way to play games that require 3.61+, and there likely won't be one for a loong long time if at all.

    I recall them leaving the servers up for quite a while after PSP was 'dead' and the Vita is still doing ok in Japan.

    (Quick googling finds the PSN store on PSP didn't shut down till last year.)

    Why is the 3DS easier to hack than Vita anyway? On 3DS you have freeshop, a shop where literally tons of games are available to be downloaded for free.

    My very own theory is that Sony spent most of the $$$ available for developing the Vita in "protecting" it from piracy than creating acceptable games, and with the list of available ones (most of them are steam-baked crappy ones), I can say I'm not at all wrong about it.

    The system itself is a good handheld and it has so many possibilities in the hardware, that developers screwed most of their ideas for the games, and Sony being the top of them. Also if we take into account the overpriced memories, that signed the fail process for the Vita.

    So yes, as far as Sony concerns (and that means OFFICIALY), the Vita is dead. Third parties must get their already developed games on the market before the cutomer realizes the end of the Vita, or they'll lose a lot of $$$.

    This kind of remind me of the Atari and E.T. cartridges history.

    Yeah and its on PS4 too, they even ported 2 other shantae games to get playstation users up to speed IIRC

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I'd argue that a system is only officially dead when it's no longer in production which is not dead for the vita. I remember a fiasco a year or two back when a mistranslation had people thinking the vita ceased production when it was only the OLED model but as far as I know the system is still in production and games are still coming out for it. The Wii U is a console I'd call dead considering that every game planned for it 3rd party or otherwise has been canceled and production has ceased. You also must remember that the vita has a high attach rate which means that the games sell well so 3rd party companies won't move away so easily.

    You quoted me wrong... where did I wrote "End of production"?

    Sega Dreamcast still got a release (from a third party developer) last year, so I agree, "End of production" doesn't mean end of life or fun.

    But when the developer and brand owner no longer releases games for a platform, and unless it has a decent catalogue of games available (the Vita lacks this), we can say that platform is dead.

    I'd like that Sony stop bothering Vita owners with firmware updates and allow the homebrew community to give a new life to the Vita by the means of emulators. That'll happen when the last third party developer releases their last game as planned, then -maybe- the Vita will have a good use.

    I'm saying that a platform is classified as dead at the end of its production. For example I didn't think of the PS2 as truly dead until Sony stopped producing them in 2013.

    Another Question:
    At the Moment we have PSN Access and someone (this Guy) said that you have to have Kernel Access to get the Keys needed for PSN....
    How was ist possible to get the old PSN Spoof ? (there was ofc. no Kernel Exploit) ?
