With PSVita (Sony’s next handheld) around the corner, its time for us to make a decision if we want to cover the Vita scene. So I am asking our readers to answer the following poll to help me decide what would be the best course of action to take
Do you want to see PS Vita Hacking news?

Different front page same forum, think it would be better to have a central forum so you dont have to sign up again etc.
I voted yes. More hacks the better.
I personally think we should be front paging important PS Vita hacking news, like SKFU's recent developments, one of the reasons being, that a few of our PS3 hacking user base will buy a Vita and they will be able to keep up with Vita hacking progress on this forum as oppose to going to a separate forum.
Perhaps, we could have the PS3 News as the default tab and have a PS Vita news tab for those that do wish to keep track of the progress in that scene.
Finally it would give me a wider range of news to post, as i think i may be in the Vita scene just as much as i was/am in the PS3 Scene i also host the Vita Dev Wiki
I think PS3Hax should cover psvita hacks but only major news for now,untill it gets released world wide
i say yes! maybe get its own page when its scene grows
I say yes on this site
Random note i really do wish you would remove those codhax links, i keeps clicking empty space and getting linked to the damn site as i removed the images because they made the site look ugly -.-
The downside about a second news tab is primarily vita users wont be able to just load up the site and get to what they want immediately. What about a sidebar with news titles for vita on the ps3 tab and vice-versa.
I dont think is a good idea,
I know, more hacks better and blablabla
is a PS3 hacks site. Is better to continue like this.
Just important news of PSVita front paged.
Well, first we need to define "important."
Will news that further progresses the development of CFW be classified as important? Or news that discusses a possible exploit in a video game? Or if someone gets an emulator running?
Before we can say only front page the important stuff, we need to agree on what's important and what isn't.
I say yes because I think we should help screw $ony as much as possible.
Better to get all all the latest hacking news in one place rather than having to go to more forums.
with each its own front page you can look through front pages more easily and organized.
Well what ever is best for the people litterly.
$ony changed their latest OFW (4.0) to communicate with the PS3, so why not
Maybe $ony devs will be so "smart" to give us a new Tiff exploit with the PSVita so we can do a "Hello World/HyperVisor" call to the PS3
I know I'll be getting the info from here anyways.
I voted the next best thing to what I had in my mind:
Yes - show PS Vita news on front page at ps3hax.net but label the backgrounds of PS3/PSVita posts with a different color (for example Green for Vita Blue for PS3)
ya, it'll be nice seeing news in 3 or 4 years with the title "first cfw for psvita" only runs homebrew for now, although, plz if math says : "I jailbreak psvita but I won't release anything" don't put this on the news.
i also vote yes its great to hear about new Sony Devices being hacked "makes me worm inside LOL"
Go for it oh and have it here front page.
Yea there should be a filter to allow us the ability to see Vita news if we want and if not filter it out.
although i will not buy the vita... and i don't give a **** about the vita... i still think we should have a dedicated (same forum) section... although not the same front page... or at least with a filter...
Yes, im curious about the vita and would rather not go searching for hacks in other forums/sites since i use your rss/forum everyday. Many will disagree and want to keep it ps3 only but if there is a demand for it, you should retain or attract new customers and support vita's homebrew.
i think the front page with the option of showing both at once.
for those that choose not to see it merged with ps3 can still have it in an RSS feed. the same could be done for those who get a psvita and have no interest in the ps3.
keeping the forum together would make more sense imo
I'm still skeptical, newer generation machines won't be easily hackable, AFAIK 3DS wasn't hacked yet either (nor iPhone 4S, iOS 5.x untethered way, PS3 on 3.55+ (outside of Mathieulh's and KaKaRoTo's home) et cetera).
Maybe we have to wait 5 years for a real (at least homebrew enabler) PSVita hack. Until that day PSVita "hack" news are quite useless for most of us. Merging those news with these would be wise only if and when that will happen.
SKFU's tools will be useful, but only after that day. (And he's probably a licensed developer or has a leaked devkit.)
No, i don't want vita front paged on a PS3 SITE just like other consoles, give all related news it's own website I have no interest in buying a vita so all related news does not interest me.
i vote no! more hack more drama!
PS3 HAX ONLY... if it is important and has something to do with the ps3 then fine by all means front page news IT, there's enough front page junk already, no need to add more... aka... scene drama and interviews to fill space cause there is nothing better to put up as front page news... sorry for sounding a lil harsh but its true. If the Vita can do something that will progress a PS3 hombrew or PS3 hack... who knows what some brilliant dev can think up to do with these two powerful pieces of hardware!
im with the hacking lets see who is the first person who will unlock the psvita nobody knows maybe i will.......
of course we have to move on to stay with the world
now just think about NES hacks who will think about that lol
I dont wanna miss the members of PS3Hax, definitely i will be buying next gen consoles and handhelds n i m sure everyone else will
So i think its time to move on and Rock on
yea sure just to keep updated on the most recent hapenings! but could we have ps3 news seperated from ps vita news kinda like having two tab browsing on a internet browser
Gonna change the URL?
No. I don't want to see PSVita news here @ PS3hax.net since in the word itself, PS3 so it's only for ps3. . . Maybe create a PSVITA HAX SITE.
I would want to know any of the hacking progresses that do take place with the Vita.
I have no intention of buying one, and I kinda hope it never gets hacked because that would lead to sony making more money from it...but I would still be interested to see the news.
yup would definately like to see PSVita news on here....for now at least.
Have no interest in buying one in the short term, so wouldn't go looking for news on it, but if happen to glance at news on some big breakthroughs or developments on it, then something may catch my eye and make me want to look into one further...and if it all kicks off bigtime with big news frequently (wishful thinking) they could be seperated later
I think it'd be great to hear any news in any scene. I used to love having Xbox360 news here too (although Pbanj's threads are just as good).
I reckon having a psvitahax.net dedicated front page with a shared forum (expanding the current PSvita section) is best (since I skip the front page anyway :D) but that way we don't miss anything and people coming here for Vita news will see other scene news. We could have tabs for each section and one listing everything (on the front page).
I really think Hax network should be aiming towards becoming the next dash-hacks, seeing as that's posting more generic news, rather than just scene news. Besides, people interesting in modding their PS3 or Vita, will likely want to mod other devices they own.
Just my 2c..

Just make a vita section like theres a ps2 section and a psp section so just add vits to it.
I think that at least in the beginning you could have it on the current home page but maybe once the scene picks up check it again because now it seems a bit pointless since Vita news may be very slow at first.
Im gonna get one when they price cut them
[MENTION=7773]GregoryRasputin[/MENTION] : That's exactly what I meant, how else are you to survive? lol
yeh , sure why not
I say post it here but lets keep it in a different area to keep it simple. Unless [MENTION=1]Pirate[/MENTION] wants another site. I guess it's really up to him.
Should be merged will give people more to read and headlines to report, even if they dont have a psp
I just wanna see the News when it gets hacked here 1st I bet it piss off sony much more to see it here at day haha it be the same day I will go out and buy it from a Pan Shop lolz.
I JUST bought mine, can't wait to mess with it!
PS3 --> PS3hax.net
PSVita --> PSVitahax.net
For PSVita hacks, psvitahax.net should be created.
I dunno why I bothered to even vote on this poll... They put GIANT posts for anything vita related no matter what anyways.. might as well change the name of this site to VITAHAX.NET cause that what is becoming of it anyways. I came here for "PS3 HaX" NOT PSP hax, OR PS2/PS1 HaX... with all that why don't y'all start posting Xperia Arc and Xperia Play HaX while your at it, might as well since anything PS3 CFW/MFW related is usually a bunch of BULLSH@T or scene drama anyhow. Sounds good huh... better than nothing i guess cause thats all thats goin on around here.
I guess you don't know how voting works's, the majority of votes wins and the majority of votes was that we posted PS Vita news.
According to the poll results only 41% of votes wanted the vita news on the PS3HAX.NET front page, so the results show the majority of users do not want to see it, or want it on a different page
Yes - show PS Vita news on front page at ps3hax.net - (same forums) (41%, 3,508 Votes)
