5w ago - Following up on the previous update, today dantezteam Tweeted a picture of what appears to be a way to activate full and demo PS Vita games using ReActPSN on a PS3 console running Custom Firmware.
Once activated using a PS3 on CFW and ReactPSN, the PlayStation Vita games are then transferred to Sony's PS Vita handheld console.
Currently there are no clear instructions or guide beyond the team stating "pkg-ps3-react-psvita-play" unfortunately so this is being considered a rumor until additional details surface.
