PS Vita fully hacked to support homebrew and emulators

With the prevalence of mobile gaming and then the focus on VR, both PC and console based, it seems that the biggest casualty in the gaming world are the handhelds. To add insult to injury, the PlayStation Vita, and especially the PS Vita TV, a.k.a. PlayStation TV, hasn't really been given that much love by Sony of late. It still has, however, its share of loyal owners who are more than happy to extend the use of their handhelds. Luckily for them, at least for the most adventurous ones, there now exists an easy to use hack that opens the door to more content, legit or otherwise.

The writing on the wall: Sony tops selling PS TV in Japan

When Sony came out with the PlayStation TV, known as the PlayStation Vita TV in some markets, in 2013, it had an opportunity to capitalize on a new yet niche market.

PS Now finally comes to the PS Vita, God of War III in tow

Sony is slowly, very slowly, but also very surely, expanding the coverage of its game streaming platform. Almost a month after it has flipped the switch for, rather ironically, some of Samsung's Smart TVs, Sony is now enabling PlayStation Now on its own portable and TV devices, namely, the PS Vita and the PS TV. Of course, it wouldn't be much fun if that's all that Sony has in store in its announcement. It has also expanded the lineup of games available on PS Now to include, among other things, the gory God of War III.
