Another exploited PSP Game was announced for Vita Firmware v3.36 by Vita developer Qwikrazor, following the "Arcade Dart" exploit. That is currently still available for purchase on the PS Store but now you have an additional choice as the developer has an exploit ready for "Hot Brain"also. This game is only available in the North American PS Store. So if you have not scooped up on either of these recent exploits and are wondering what path is best; take the [break]ss[/break] words from The Z over at as he has pointed out the Hot Brain exploit you do not need another base game, similar to how the recent Numblast exploit worked.

This exploit will have the same functionality of running ARK eCFW as the Arcade Darts exploit allows, so need to grab this on if you took advantage of the the recent Arcade Dart Exploit, .
