    3DS. It's older and i'm going to assume simpler based on nintendos history compared to Sony going berserk to stop piracy.

    This thread is crap.

    Third option should be "neither".

    Considering the DSi still hasn't been fully hacked I am going with the Vitia.

    Honesty couldn't care which gets hacked first as long as it gets hacked soon but if was gonna say it would be any. Cause who knows when either will get hacked anyway.

    Considering the DSi was practically pointless to hack, is it REALLY surprising?

    The Vita has a lot more potential in terms of processing power, so I'd say more effort will be pooled into the Vita.

    I'm going with Vita

    The Go is hacked as well as any other system (except for a modified bootloader, but that's not even needed). Intentions don't always equal outcomes.

    My money's on the Vita, as it could be more of a "utility" thing, whereas the DS family's always seen as entertainment for the younger ages. I mean the PSP has video streaming and remote control and such for homebrew, mostly utility-type, and has an older audience. With the DS family, people often only care about their ability to pirate games for free, and the only real reason flash carts are so prevalent is because chinese companies realized they could make some easy reseller money off of them.

    So there's more of a reason for the older audience that actually knows what they're doing to go after the Vita... and as we've seen, some of the proven people from the PSP scene are already poking around in it.

    What can be said like that for the 3DS? "Well flash carts updated their bootloaders again..."

    Hard to tell. On one hand you have all the homebrew devs trying to hack the Vita, but on the other hand you have all the flashcard manufacturers trying to hack the 3DS, and they have had a good head start.

    Well Sony has been quite aware of the PSP's flaws when it came to piracy, so the effort they have put into the Vita to prevent this is likely to prevent this for some time. That being said though, the 3DS isn't exactly showing any real signs of progress either, so it might not be done anytime soon.

    If I had to put money on either though I'd say the Vita, which as Rydian has pointed out, is more of a Utility thing that 'older' audiences are more likely to use. But.. I also expect some form of 3DS hack to surface eventually for the region lock. Full hacks and pirated games are probably a ways off for either console though. :)

    If you are talking about previous gen support the 3DS has already won the hacking race.

    Edit: Woops!

    well I know that.. I have a 3DS. I just meant overall, I'd rather the Vita be hacked first so I could play my old games. As opposed to the 3DS being hacked first to play homebrew/3DS games/etc.

    But it doesn't play PSP games and doesn't matter to those that have a Vita.

    I believe both systems will get a chance to be hacked at around the same timespan.

    The PS Vita is no doubt a mammoth and *should be* stunning with homebrew/emulation/others just like on the PSP.

    However I bet works on the 3DS have started as well (in fact a long time ago - especially if Crown3DS is actually legit).

    Still wish there was a "whenever they are" option.

    Considering that a few exploits have already been (publicly) found on the Vita, I'd have to say that it probably has the better chance of getting hacked first. It'd be an absolute beast at running homebrew/emulators/etc, though I'm personally hoping for the 3DS first, since that's the one I own. :P
