Owners of a Playstation Vita can start to become excited, hacker Yifan Lu has discovered an exploit which may make it possible to run homebrew software on the portable game device. Homebrew In this case means that (hobbyist) developers will now be able to write their own (unsigned) software for the device, or popular software packages can be ported to run on it.
For e.g. the Playstation PSP, a lot of homebrew software became available including an MSN client and many games made by hobbyists. It’s also possible to run these PSP homebrew software on the Vita already with software called Halfbyte Loader.
