    Are we going to have to always pay for an exploited game? Does anyone know if wololo or anyone has found one off a demo or an app?
    Thanks!

    Right now, no one knows. In the future however, it could be something like the PSP but that probably won't be for a while.

    I forgot
    AFAIK all of the ones they have found so far have all been paid PSP games, so chances are it will only be paid PSP games.

    They get no money off of this kind of thing, so it's not like they're doing it on purpose. Hell, HBL (for the PSP) had some versions for demos.

    Not owning a PS Vita myself, I don't know if there are PSP demos that can be downloaded for the Vita. Does it have access to all the same PSN stuff as the PSP? If so, then it is perfectly plausible that at some time there could be a demo based exploit. But I would assume there aren't many PSP demos being released any more, and most of the old ones that had potential for exploitation have probably been investigated already.

    Well even if there was a demo online. You can't distrobute it because people's name are tied in with every download you make on the vita or the ps3.

    No PSP demos on the Vita.

    Technically LocoRoco Midnight Carnival, but the full game is unlocked through the demo, so yeah.

    Unfortunately PSP demos don't work on the Vita, only full games. Remember that VHBL runs in PSP mode as Vita save data hasn't been decrypted yet.
