    Sorry for stupid question (thread's title said this lol) but i'm much curious about one thing: with a fully hacked vita we can see even a some pc game ports like we had on android?? (star wars: kotor, half life etc)
    And maybe Halo, Jade Empire and Fable :D (someone can tell me why no one port those three games on android?)

    you want to know if a system that is weaker than an android phone can play those games? no. no one is going to port those over to hardware that can barely emulate nintendo ds code.

    I forgot
    We've already seen ports of Quake, Doom, Hexen, and Wolfenstein, so it's certainly "possible", but to get them running properly it would require an open source (or reverse engineered) engine that could be ported to the Vita.

    We'll never see Halo, Jade Empire, and Fable, as those don't have any open source engines available and "emulating" them would simply require more power than the Vita is capable.

    Yeah, I remind that Half-Life on Vita is totaly impossible...

    Also Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is completly impossible :rolleyes:

    Emulating other hardware is much tougher then running a old engine if there is a open-source port of it.

    This game is amazing, for PC, and i suppose its a modified version of MUGEN (so, technically, itsa reverse enginered)


    We'll see this on vita? :D
