• PSP Dev Wololo is coding away and has managed to get Doom running on the PS Vita, here is a quote from the source:

    A year and a half ago when I got Doom for PSP to run on the PSP Go, website hackaday noticed it and said “[being able to run Doom is] a prerequisite for any cracked device”. Some people try to run Linux on their hardware at all cost, I prefer Doom. Today I was able to tweak HBL a bit on the PS Vita to get Doom to run on it. Will I get hackaday’s attention this time too? That’s, hands down, the best fps available on the vita so far.

    We are aware that this hack will be easily patched by Sony, but we still plan to publicly release it some time soon after the US/EU release of the Vita (we still have to port HBL to…………

      I hope they wait a while before releasing the exploit. At least wait a couple of FW updates.

      lol, obviously they will remove the psp emulator maybe not when they are released in the eu and us, but we all know that if the flaw is hard to patch and then eventually leads to vita backups being runable, it will most certainly be removed.

      Come eu and us release, the psp emulator probably will not be listed as a feature; but then again they got away with taking otheros away so as usual $ony will do what they feel like doing.

      Anyhows, I'm sure most of us probably will end up buying a second-hand one so that $ony dont get our cash
