    I never understand how hackers can find these exploits in the first place.

    Every time I show my friends my PS Vita, the first thing they ask is "is it hacked?" and then "I'll buy it when it gets hacked, just like the PSP"

    Don't really get why people would buy a $250+ machine to play old games. It was excusable in 2006 since hackable hardware wasn't easy to get but nowadays a $100 cheapo android tablet can do more. "Sticking" it to Sony isn't really accomplished when you give them money for hardware that they actually make money on.

    If you're buying a VITA to play old games, you're doing it wrong. If you've bought a VITA and thought it would be neat to have all your games on one system so you hacked it to do so, then you're doing it right.

    Well Sony has the right idea but is taking the wrong approach. The psp was a great system for emulation and its controls made it one of its biggest selling points. While I get they want to prevent piracy, I don't know, it just seems like its going to come back to bite them somehow.

    how exactly did taking down two games change anything, seems like they screwed over normal consumers with this one.

    It changse things because the two games were needed to do the exploit. If people can't download/access either of the games, they can't exploit the games for other uses with the system. Generic, uber-simplified example: Would be like having a locked door to your house, and someone wanted in. If they had the key to the door, they could go in and out of the house anytime they wanted. If they didn't have the key, they couldn't get in the house (without other means, like breaking window). Translated: Would be like having access to the locked/unaccessable system software to your system, and someone wanted in. If they had the right games (in this case, Motorstorm & Everybodys Tennis) to the system, they could go in and out of the system software anytime they wanted. If they didn't have the games, they couldn't get in the system software
