    Default PSVITA - What can I do with it?

    Hi guys, random question

    I've had the PSVITA for like 5 months but touched it maybe only 1 or 2 times when I first got it.

    I'm just asking a general question as to what are the capabilities of it - in terms of downloading games, or playing games or doing different stuff with it. I used to have a PSP before which I could download games and plays so just wondering what are the options as to what can be done

    Thanks

    you BUY games (PS1, PSV , PSP) off the PSN or buy PSV games from the store
    there ARE NO VITA HACKS OUT


    the vita PSP mode is unlocked, but you must be on the right FW and have the game installed on the vita
    and you CAN NOT UPDATE the vita or lose the hack



    it best to use the vita for official stuff
    and use a hacked psp for PSP game(and homemade ps1 games) and homebrew

    It a good idea to have "Hide extensions for known file types" in Folder Options(under Tool) unchecked (turn on extensions)

    Thanks for the reply and help man, I know sometimes with a topic like mine I would get flamed so quickly so thanks for just answering the question

    Hmmm I was better off in the old days then with my old PSP which I sold ages ago!

    What do you mean by "Unlocked PSP MODE" PS VITA? With an unlocked one, what can you do?

    if you have the right FW and game installed on your vita you can use eCFW on you vita

    with eCFW for the psp mode for the vita
    you can do most things you can do with a PSP with CFW (homebrew and back-ups, not ps1 games as they work different on the vita)

    What else? Can I watch movies on this thing? I am planning on buying one to replace the tablet I broke, and all I really did on the tablet was play games and watch movies. So... Can I put movies on this? Maybe Netflix? I think I saw it said that with the right FW, I could run a eCFW, which would let me play PSP backups and homebrew? If I am reading that right,that means that I could essentially turn my Vita into a PSP, and play my backed up games, or even Quake (PSP homebrew)? That right?
    I really have no problem purchasing games. In fact, I plan to. But it would be awesome if I could play some of the backed up games I already have saved to disc from several years ago when I had a PSP1000... especially since many of those were import titles and almost unavailable today. I could maybe buy Castlevania...
