The Underground Flash Card revolution for the Sony's PlayStation Vita handheld has officially begun!

Finally, the rumors are true, PS Vita has been cracked by the World's Famous Scene Team Cobra, they have just released details on their top secret Black Fin dongle/emulator for PlayStation Vita Games.


It been a long time coming, but it the day is finally here, the Sony PlayStation Vita has been officially cracked open by the famous Team Cobra, they have just announced details of their upcoming Black Fin for Vita owners to be able to finally share Vita games!

Cobra Black Fin Website Launched! The flash card revolution for Vita has begun......

What does Cobra Black Fin do?

The Black Fin allows Vita and Vita Slim Wifi and 3G users to share their Vita games over the internet.

The Cobra Black Fin Emulator card stores game ISO's on Micro SD and the Black Fin Card is then inserted into the Vita/Vita Slim console.

When connected to the Black Fin servers authentication of the Vita game is performed by matching the ISO on your Micro SD card to the same original game running on a peers' Black Fin reader connected to his PC and the Black Fin servers or friends' servers.

You might ask why it is necessary to authenticate the game you wish to play using an original card connected to a server?

Vita has a very secure card authentication mechanism, which to date has not been penetrated and is based on secure cryptography. It is unlikely that a direct authentication method which avoids having to use a peer to peer system will appear any time soon. As a result Cobra has designed a unique and cutting edge peer to peer sharing device which allows users to share their favourite games with friends over an internet network.

Vast resources have been poured into designing a flash card which is the same size as the original Vita card itself. Yes, the Cobra Black Fin squeezes all of its technology into a card no bigger than a Vita game card with tons of features and packing serious hardware power! When you look at the circuit board design and components used you start to understand the expertise and time required to pull off a design of this magnitude.

See attached below a quick video of the BlackFin in action on the latest Vita firmware 3.51!

Expect release of the Cobra BlackFin end of December 2015..

Initial batch is sure to sell out fast, so be sure to pre-order in advance to avoid disappointment.

Stay tuned for more information and further picture and video presentations.

What's included in the Cobra Black Fin set?
  • Cobra Black Fin Emulator card for Vita
  • Cobra Black Fin Reader for PC
  • Mini USB to USB A cable for connecting Black Fin Card Reader to PC
  • BlackFin USB dongle
This is sure an amazing day for the console/handheld underground scene, now all is left to see cracked open is the Nintendo Wii U, and of course the newer generation of consoles, but with Vita down now, it is good sign as it was one of the toughest in last 5 years.
