From his site: Since a more or less short break from public posts I am back with a little tool called "PS VITA Firmware xTractor".

For now it only works with firmware 00.945.040, tho surely I will update it sooner or later. Just a short info about the firmware itself, it is not unencrypted like the PS3 ones.

The tool is meant for those who will join the VITA scene as a little sign that you are not alone Crawl out of your holes and come up with your tools and research, guys!

I hope the PS VITA scene will not fck up as the PS3 scene did over the last months cuz of the piracy infected environment. ...

Video: Virtua Tennis 4 PS Vita Exclusive Features and VT Apps

175w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has made available some video footage today of Virtua Tennis 4 for PS Vita which showcases the game's exclusive features and VT apps below.

To quote: Virtua Tennis 4 for PlayStation Vita first stepped onto the court at E3. Even at that early stage in its development, the game showed signs of ambition.

It seems that Sega is taking great care to adapt the tried-and-true gameplay for PS Vita by extensively leveraging the handheld's hardware strengths, all without dumbing down the series's winning formula.

Virtua Tennis 4's core experience is nearly identical to its recently-released PS3 counterpart; you can create a character, start a career, and participate in tournaments while enhancing your skills through all kinds of bizarre tennis-related skill tests. Likewise, you can jump into the shoes of Andy Roddick, Roger Federer, or other real-world tennis stars.





What PS Vita brings to the court is a new, yet optional way to control the main serve-and-volley action, plus a series of "VT Apps."

The core gameplay opens up considerably thanks to the PS Vita touch screen. Tap on the screen...
