Developer big_Sakis25 (of VitaHEX Games) follows up the homebrew game Crazy Traffic Jam 3D, with an exciting release PRO Camera Via, which brings an amazing amount of features in this Camera App that no doubt supersedes the official camera app capabilities. With this release the dev has unlocked all the hidden features while also bringing a feel that is familiar to what we would find in most smartphone camera interfaces. Included is a BETA Gallery which perhaps once this application matures a PSTV variant can be used for quick editing of photos stored, but for PS Vita internal camera , i think most user's who use the feature will see this is as a welcome and exciting release from VitaHEX Games
One of the best things that could happen to the PlayStation TV (Vita TV) was the AntiBlackList (Whitelist) patches that removed the restricted that will only allow certain Vita games to be played. While it did not make every single game playable, those patches did open most of the library up to user's., but some games would still proved to problematic leaving a bit of unknowns why some titles would not work, but developer OperationNT stumbled on to something very interesting with this new FakeCamera Plugin. This plugin is important for PlayStation TV (Vita TV) because some games would call for the Vita Camera and we all know that the PSTV does not come with a camera only the Vita itself. The dev has two new titles confirmed to work with this method, If you stumble on to another game let us know in the comments below, view all the details from OperationNT.​
big_Sakis25 (of VitaHEX games) has released a new homebrew game for our exploited PS Vita or PSTV called Crazy Traffic Jam 3D, This game is powered by LuaPlayerPlus (LPP) and is an arcade style driving game, where weaving your car through traffic and obstacles is the goal while collecting power-ups and coins for a max score. Looks to be a great nod to the classic SpyHunter and similar games​

PlayStation 3 user's have not seen a working Neo-Geo Pocket emulator (libretro Core) since way back on v1.0.0.2 of RetroArch (Ps3). Since that time we have seen the core with a regression for the PS3 (& other ports) making the core unusable. but ps3 dev and libretro contributor @Ezio as promised (when releasing the CFW -CEX / ODE variants) that a fix for Neo Geo Pocket was made (by developer R-Type) and the core was working a fix pkg for v1.6.3 would be released. That time has come as Ezio stopped by the forums to share this now working Neo-Geo Pocket Core for the PS3. Install version 1.6.3 then you can proceed to install this fix pkg afterwards.
