Why Hack the Vita
I have ask this question on another site, but I want to ask it here because I read here more, but I know that most people are not going to like what you are about to read, but who cares (if you don't then that is an issues all by it's self) But as the tittle says "Why hack the the VITA" what will come of it, is it really so you can play PSP games on it (get a PSP) or maybe play NES, SNES, VBA, FABNEXT, TG16, NEGO and other old school emulators on it? Why not use you PC (almost PC or MAC has them already that run PERFECT) , PSP, PS3, WIll, XBOX, XBOX 360 also have them, And if you have them on one of these systems then you already have a ton of free games on it so I ask "Why" what is wrong with actually supporting and investing in to something that could be very cool. I personally don't think that $ony would put this out with the intent to fail with all that they have on the line for it. That is why they pulled it from the store.Maybe it is just me but I will pay for something that is worth it (for years many people paid for the PS3 & 360 as it was) Because you had to and you enjoyed it when I was much younger I bought Nintendo games and had fun and to this day no football game is as fun to play. and As of now I am really like Uncharted Golden Abyss and it shows a lot of what the VITA can do if $ is working on it and not putting out patches week after week doing nothing.
Great Read Sir!
Why hack the Vita? To be blunt for the free Vita games
But will the Vita be the same like the PSP scene? Not a chance in hell. People want to hack it for the free Vita games if not. Why not get a psp for 60 bucks? and an 8gb for 20 bucks.
Me personally I will not buy the Vita this year because I honestly dont see good games out on it yet. When the game libary gets bigger and larger and the Vita price drops 50 dollars I will get 1.
You could have asked the same question when the PSP came out. Look how good that turned out. The PS Vita will only gain options as it is opened up more later on. I personally like having options, I like them even more when Sony does not want me to have them. :)
Maybe one day we will see a multiMAN Vita edition.
Why not ? :cool:

why hack any system? seems to be the same question just less specific :D
I hope the system gets hacked for few reasons.
1. Removel of spyware from the Vita - You know what I'm talking about.
2. Getting rid of the proprietary CMA - See #1
3. Getting access to your folders inside the vita - As it stands. Photo's are only accessible.
4. Better APPs - Possible Hombrew apps.
Why hack the Vita? To gain or unlock what Sony has and is trying to lock you out of.
On a side note. I was trying to make a browser page so one could use it for like the psp HTML eBooks. Failed - See #3. What bullcrap!
I think one of the main reasons, is that hackers and warez people want to feel like they own the hardware. When you buy a console its like the company is just leasing it to you with there software, at least when it is hacked, it feels more like yours.
I would say that is one of the reasons why people hack these things, but of course many just want free games.
I refuse to PAY for THEM to spy me P-E-R-I-O-D !
I don't want this crap even if it was FREE.
Will only get one when fully hacked though.
Free games duh, almost anyone says different is lying.
