pretty much a waste of money buying these psp games... when within a few weeks or less it will be patched with a fw update.

i suppose if u like playin some emus for a small amount of time before sony patches it it's kinda worth it, but not really.

Many PS3 devs release a lot of things even though they get nothing back. But I have always felt as if the PSP/Vita scene was much better than the PS3 scene.

Dont ya just love the way a PSP DEV is doing his thing and releasing it for free. PS3 DEVS take notice!

Good news to hear. Not totally sure I'll ever use any hacks on my vita atleast not till there is an exploit that doesn't involve a PSP game to use. But I am happy to see progress being made on the vita unlike the ps3....
