    There is one for PSP called CtorrentPSP. You can use it with Adrenaline or ARK.

    Tried it now and it doesn't work... I thought it did, but it hangs on the network selection. :/

    yea I think so "Mai Torrent", plus, you can find some more, but "google" is your friend. Now I remember, there was one specifically for the xbox360 a long time ago, then it became abandonware. Goodluck while it lasts.

    With the cost and failure rate of vita mem cards, torrenting on one doesnt sound like a great idea.
    Any old computer or smartphone would be so much more usable.

    I forgot
    A Vita TV with an external drive would work fine. Not expensive, tons of storage.

    What would be silly about this, though, is the transfer speed in general. IIRC someone was able to figure out the max speed of the Vita's internet transfers (based on CPU clock), and it was somewhere around 10mbps. I mean, it's not bad, but torrenting with any other device would, as mentioned, be much quicker/more reliable.

    That's a good point, if all you had was a PSTV and some USB storage it would be useful.
    I'd still take a rpi or an old PC if one was available. Cheap and surprisingly responsive with a minimal linux distro for just torrenting/media centre purposes.

    Also, nice avatar :)
    I'm a couple of hours into thimbleweed park now (had to finish zelda BOTW first) and it's what I hoped doublefine adventure would be. Great game.
