PSN Access / Safe Homebrew Flag / Vitashell 0.8

Its only been a month since YiFan released his amazing HENkaku for PlayStation Vita, and already we are on Release #3 with tons of new features, like easy spoofing of firmware versions to allow our v3.60 Vita's to get back onto PSN since the bad Sony update!


YiFan posted this notice on his blog: "It’s been almost a month since the release of HENkaku. We now have over 100,000 unique installs! (That number excludes re-installs required after rebooting.) To celebrate, we are pushing the third major update and it includes features that many users have been asking for. For the impatient, you can get it right now by rebooting your Vita and installing HENkaku from https://henkaku.xyz/."

Users are also Reporting those with up to 20 Hours Played on Steam are still able to get Refunds!

It wasn’t long ago that Sony’s digital refund policy was thrust into the limelight after some No Man’s Sky players tried to (unsuccessfully) obtain a refund for various reasons including technical issues. The company said in response that users are only entitled to refunds in line with PlayStation’s published refund policy.


No Man's Sky has not lived up to all the pre-release media hype, as such some buyers of the game are very upset and have been asking for refunds, and it seems Sony has decided to bend their PSN refund policy finally after all the outcry, just like Valve also has increased the normal 2 hours played limit on Steam for valid refunds, to as high as 20 hours played when it comes to this crappy game.

Very Soon the Xbots and Ponies might be finally playing with each other, if Sony decides to approve it!

The Xbox One now supports cross-play which means that gamers on Windows 10 can play games against those on the Xbox One. Microsoft has signalled its willingness to make this happen between Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as well but that depends on whether or not Sony is up for it.


It seems that Microsoft is basically all for it when the day comes to allow Xbox Live and PSN to work together in matching up players from both networks on online multiplayer games, but right now the ball is basically in Sony's court to give the final 'Yeah, Its A-Ok Idea, Let's Go Ahead with it!', so the pressure from users and developers also will for sure be mounting on Sony to finally make up their mind about it.

Hidden in Plain Sight, but Not Found by Anyone for over Two Years!

While arcade culture has largely died out in the United States, it’s doing much better over in Japan, and SEGA’s arcades seem to be among the best in the country. Still, despite the attention they receive, for the past two years, the company has been hiding a secret, and despite not putting much effort into obscuring it, it’s only being discovered just now.


Before you read the rest of this weird retro arcade news story, can you figure out what the 'hidden secret' is, by just looking at the above photo, and if you give up after few minutes don't worry, you not alone as because even tho its right there in plain sight, it took over two years before a Arcade gamer visiting the place in Japan, figured out what the whole thing was trying to say to gamers! :)

But the PS4 version on still track for release in few days, and a new PC expansion trailer been released also!

The World War 1 multiplayer first person shooter “Verdun” has been delayed for Xbox One, though the PS4 version is still on track to be released August 30. Initially the company wanted to release the title for both consoles at the same time, but recently an announcement was made by the developers on their games Steam page.


Very sad news today for Xbox owners that were looking forward to be experiencing first-hand the horrors of World War One, with the new first-person-shooter 'Verdun' as it has been announced that XB1 is delayed, with no ETA on when it will be coming, so if you having some realistic WW1 action, you going to have to purchase an PlayStation 4 console instead as the game still coming out for PS4 on time in few days on August 30th for all those Sony lovers that have been...

Plus the NX Prototype had 2 USB Ports On the Charging/TV connection Dock part of it!

Nintendo NX is scheduled to launch worldwide in March 2017, but not much been confirmed yet by it, but insider Emily Rogers has recently left some more clues on what NX looks like besides the previously confirmed 'portable with detachable controllers' part.


Today, famous Nintendo Insider, Emily Rogers whom been right about things occurring with big 'N' in the past, has posted some Tweets about what the Nintendo NX (or what some are saying will be called 'Focus') really looks like size wise when it arrives in March 2017 next year, she says the NX prototype (not confirmed yet, how or where she saw it), had a 6.2" multi-touch screen and the dock had 2 USB ports, and of course it was portable/dockable unit with detachable controllers like previously confirmed rumors, but now thanks to Emily we get a rough idea on...

After a year of closed Alpha and Beta testing, Microsoft has decided to can the massive online FtP project for 'Halo'

While we tend to think of Microsoft’s Halo franchise as one of the more important franchises in gaming, the series hasn’t risen to the level of global success that we might think it has.


Even tho Titan and Destiny has been successful, and even a free-to-play version of Call of Duty is working out in beta testing, Microsoft has for some reason decided to can the project for a 'Halo Online' after a whole year of closed Alpha and Beta testing for the MMO.

Video released by Team FreeK, showing proof that they can decrypt PSN retail PlayStation Vita games!

We knew at somepoint after the HENkaku release, that open-season on PS Vita Piracy would occur, but seems that day is even closer at hand, as Team FreeK have released a PoC video that they have PSN retail PS Vita game dumper working called 'Vitamin'.


The HENkaku release opened up the PlayStation Vita finally to homebrew, and what an amazing line-up of releases so far from various authors, there is so many its almost impossible to decide what to play first, but sadly not everyone out there is into 'homebrew', there is that other side, the so called 'Warez Scene', the Dark Side of unlocking the force behind a new gaming device, once it occurs, everyone is focused on getting free games working, or so called 'backups' of their legit purchases as a way to sugar-coat what they are doing which the...

This is the Xbox Live 'Goldeneye' port that licensing disputes killed.

For a time, the Nintendo 64's Goldeneye 007 was the greatest game in the world, but Rare's shooter hasn't aged gracefully, the two decades since its launch making its controls feel clunky and its graphics look sludgy.


GoldenEye been in the news recently, we had reported on recently, the GoldenEye: Source release, which is rebuilt Valve's Half-Life turned into series of multiplayer 007 action packed maps, and now we have rare leaked gameplay footage of the Xbox 360 HD remaster of Goldeneye 007 that never got to see the light of day, because everyone's lawyers were fighting over licensing terms.
