16w ago - Telltale Games Community Lead Laura Perusco shared a video today announcing that The Walking Dead on PlayStation Vita is officially out tomorrow!
To quote: Antsy to get your hands on The Walking Dead for PS Vita? The wait is over!
Look out for PS Vita versions of all five episodes of The Walking Dead Season One, PLUS the special 400 Days DLC episode, in the PlayStation Store tomorrow (The bundle will also be available!).
This version is an awesome way to experience The Walking Dead, whether you're dipping your toe into the water for the first time, or looking to catch up on any episodes you might have missed. Even if you've already played through the whole season on PS3, there's an additional set of Trophies for playing the series on PS Vita.
We've even added some special features just for PS Vita: you can play with analog controls and face buttons, or get a little more intimate with the interaction by switching to touchscreen only.
Remember, fans of the series should keep those save files, because Season Two is expected to hit PS Vita later this year as well. Hope you're ready for the portable undead onslaught!
17w ago - A few days ago Sony released PS Vita System Software Update v2.60, and today The Z has shared a demonstration video of a PS Vita Hello World on PlayStation Vita Firmware 2.60 with details below.
To quote: PS Vita Firmware 2.60 was released yesterday by Sony, and, unsurprisingly, this firmware patches the latest VHBL exploit from Qwikrazor that we released for game Gamocracy: Legend of Robot on firmware 2.12 a few weeks ago.
But, and this will not be a surprise to those who follow this blog regularly, solutions still exist to run (PSP) homebrew on the latest PS Vita firmware 2.60. The Z proves it to us in the video below.
In the video, what we see is not a VHBL port but a “simple” hello world. This is the same code pretty much everyone has been using since the sparta exploit back in 2009, and, in case you’re wondering, we’re talking of course of a user mode exploit running inside the PSP emulator of the Vita. With the same possibilities as usual of seeing a port of VHBL coming one day to this exploit.
