I have the walmart lego pstv bundle that i have yet to open . i do not have a ps3 to activate . will i be able to open it and update it to 3.60 to use the latest exploit. With out a ps3.

Also once i get a psvita and exploit that. would it be possiable to use 1 memory card on the pstv and psvita. So when im out i can play the vita. Then whennim home play the same game etc on the ps tv?

Yes, you can activate on 3.60.
Note that currently, 3.60 lacks a native PSX emu or ePSP exploits, only HEN homebrew and VHBL homebrew.

A memory card can be shared, but as the card records the version it's used on, both units would need to be on the same version.
You can do manual updates, so as long as your theoretical vita comes on <= 3.60 you're fine.
Note that changing the card requires a reboot.

Sorry for hijacking the thread, but since we're talking about PSTV, can I use more than one memory card per device?

EDIT: nevermind, I found out I actually can :D

Just so any of you know a lot of the old and new games out for the vita will never work for the pstv, so yeah I don't see why people want to have the device.

There is a whitelist hack that makes all games work, of course some games that need things like the camera to advance some game section will get you stuck, others that have rather optional touch features will work just fine.

I thought the pstv uses older hardware than the vita in order to run games, I guess it uses the same hardware as the vita.

Same hardware, PS TV is basically a Vita without a screen, games are blocked via software due to several, more prominently compatibility and licensing issues (Sony licensed Vita games to ran on a handheld device device, since PS TV is a different product, with a different name and basically a console means that they cant simply make everything available without getting sued by devs for breaching their own contracts).

Now is the perfect time to pickup a PS TV for $30.

Couple months ago my Walmart had 10 Lego bundles for $30 so I grabbed one. Some people asked me to help them get a bundle to ship to them. I went back the next day and the lady said that one guy had come in and height steady 8 of them

For $30 a piece I would have bought all 10 of them, the new PS3 controller covers the whole cost lmao

That's the first time I've heard it explained that way. At first I was a bit upset with sony because of the incompatibilities, but I guess it's not really they're fault is it? Sorry that's a bit off topic.

A bit more on topic, NewEgg has refurbished PSTV's for $30 right now

It's really ironic that some people asked in Sony's blog about specific games and Sony said that unafortunately compatibility issues were keeping those games from coming to the PS TV, fans went to the devs twitters and inquired about this and when made aware some devs themselves released quick updates for the games to make them PS TV compatible... Which blows Sony's lies on these games being totally uncompatible... Hell some games that had gyroscope and camera only controls were tweaked to include some way to pass these parts and be PS TV compatible!... Yet some first party games like Uncharted Golden Abyss and Gravity Rush that can be played %95 with standard controls never made it to the PS TV because of "compatibility issues"? How's that not Sony's fault? :glare:

Some devs didn't release updates because they saw no real profit working a minute in their old games for these system that was doomed on release while they had moved on and were working on other stuff.

But this is Sony's fault too because they totally neglected reaching out on these devs to work things out, there is a lot of PS Vita games that work just fine without compatibility issues since "special controls" like gyroscope are optional when the whitelist hack is enabled.

Apps such as youtube and netflix were already available on vita and not on PS TV, why? Because Sony didn't bother to reach these companies to work on a deal to license them!!! Being unable to use these 2 apps gave a huge blow to the PS TV, you tell me how this is not Sony's fault...

Sony did something 20 times worse to the PS TV than what they did to the Vita, they killed it within a couple of months, thus is a great proof that piracy didn't kill the PSP as Sony blamed them. (Sorry that this became a rant, but I LOVE my vita and it makes me mad all these stupid Sony's decisions that killed it).

@jimmyleen in other news, 3.60 whitelist is available already :grog:

http://wololo.net/2016/07/29/re-enable-pstv-whitelist-3-60-ps-vita-henkaku/

Since I want to keep my 3.20 PS TV there for current TN-X/TN-V installed hacks I ordered a refurbed PS TV from amazon for $30 to use the HENkaku exploit (the sad part is that the memory cards cost more :sad:)
