Update: PS Vita / PlayStation TV version released - Update 2 - v1.01 Released (MultiPlayer Support)
The PS4 Homebrew landscape is looking better with each passing week, while the scene started off sluggish we are starting to see momentum in a variety of ways. Along with various other developer's @Lapy is doing a huge part to bring us some great homebrew games. This time around the dev wanted to remake an iconic classic in Duck Hunt. Which is a great addition to the PS4 Homebrew library as the Nintendo NES/Famicom Classic has not been playable on most emulators (especially on consoles) due to the Zapper Gun mechanics. However in this remake powered by Unity-3D the motion controls are done on the DualShock 4, bring back a great classic to your modern TVs with ease. I am sure many of you have great memories of this game or if not its worth a look as this was routinely packed along on the same cart as Super Mario Bros. back in the NES days. The only question now, Could we be seeing the "Clay Shooter Mode" in the future, like we see in the classic version?
While the scene patiently awaits for the in-development RetroArch (PS4) port to drop on homebrew capable PlayStation 4's. We have seen another emulation developer Znullptr (David Miller) in the PS4 Scene.This developer has decided to also share his talents with new emulation ports for the PS4 (GameOS). While there has been many options on the PS4 Linux side of things (just take a look at the PlayStation 4 Linux Channel for many examples) native homebrew emulators for the PS4 has been lacking, as we have heavily relied on PS2 homebrew through the Ps2 Classic emulator on the PS4 console. Not quite the most ideal situation for the PS4. but has filled the gaps of limited emulation quite nicely. Those gaps are starting to close, First we seen a mGBA (Gameboy Advance) and Reicast (Dreamcast) beta builds sprinkle around the scene in various soft release's, now comes a Yabause (Sega Saturn) emulator. While this is not a polished product it does present some limitations, most 3D games will provide many slowdowns currently, however most 2d games will​
Following up after the Announcement from @TheFloW back at the End of March this year, today @TheFloW "let the cat out of the bag" by releasing his newest Jailbreak for the PlayStation Vita, which will allow you to jailbreak both your PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV even on the newest System Firmwares 3.69 and 3.70 (which weren't able to jailbreak before). But not only that. While you can jailbreak your Devices on the specific System Firmwares mentioned before, you can also Downgrade your PlayStation Vita / TV to a lower Firmware to get the full potential of your Device like with the famous Hacks and Exploits on System Firmware 3.60 (such as HENkaku and modoru) and 3.65/3.67/3.68 (such as h-encore). So while you have been probably already prepared for this release back at the first announcement, together with the fact that @TheFloW was so kind to release his final Jailbreak even earlier as previous announced, we won't keep you on tenterhooks anymore. Here is everything you need to know.

Month after Month, the Great Time behind the RPCS3 PS3 Emulator shows more and more improvements in their work for their PS3 Emulator. As they did of course for March 2019, which you can check at their newest Progress Report. In fact, maybe this month is a little bit too technical when reading through their Release Notes but don't worry. You will again realize how good this PS3 Emulator became and how it is getting even better month after month. But one new improvement we have to stick out is the new Native Support for the DualShock 3 Controller when used within RPCS3. You might be wondering, why this new implementation comes so late? Well, there was already a full of third-party drivers but each of them weren't working perfectly. But the Team behind RPCS3 wanted to give you the best experience for playing your PS3 Game Titles. So, since you probably played your PS3 Games Titles with the Original DualShock 3 Controller on your Original PS3 Hardware, they thought about to allow the same on your PC while playing your favourite PS3 Game Titles using RPCS3. So they implemented a native support for the DualShock 3 Controller, as you would use it on your original PS3 Hardware. Kinda neat isn't it?​

Huge news for nonCFW compatible
PS3 Models (
SuperSlims and late Slim Models) as anonymous developer's have dropped a huge bombshell with the release of PS3HEN. Just recently we seen the release of HFW (Hybrid Firmware) for the PS3, proving once again that the development scene is still alive and kicking to bring a new window of exploration to 4.84 by bringing back a patched webkit (from 4.82) in a rather clever approach. Which restored the PS3Xploit Tools for 4.84 for both Custom Firmware Compatible Models (for CFW installs) and for nonCFW models that utilized the less powerful etHANel (aka HAN) exploit that with today's news will be an obsolete hack with the emergence of the PlayStation3 first HEN or otherwise known as a Homebrew ENabler. So, yes that means SuperSlim Console's and late Slims PS3 Models (aka nonCFW models) can now FINALLY enjoy PS3 Homebrew at last, but that is not all this PS3HEN release brings to the table. As there is a number of CFW patches / features that come along for the ride as well, while not on quite par with CFW functionality completely it does provide a number of functions that is very exciting and very close to a CFW experience (especially with homebrew support)..Some additional features include things like Boot-Plugin Support, BDISO Support, Cinavia patches are just a few of the features/patches you can see outlined in the release notes:
Developer Lapy05575948 has been working on several homebrew's and ports for the PS4 using Unity 3d, we have seen the developer released various games like El Pollo 2.0 & Lapy's Chicken , but then the dev also developed a game called Save the Scene which was an original concept for the PS4 (now also ported to the PS Vita). In the recent weeks the developer turned attention to a utility, that being a file manager for the PS4. The app which was called Windows Explorer (v1.00-.05) originally and since has been renamed more appropriately PS4 Xplorer in recent updates (stating from v1.06). The homebrew is still in the BETA stage but progressing well as the developer has released multiple updates for the file manager (v1.10 currently) adding features like multilingual support / FTP Support and all the essentials for file management on the PS4.. This Homebrew runs on exploited console on firmware's 5.07 / 5.05 / 5.01 / 4.75 or 4.55 firmware Follow all the previous progress of changes in the changelogs provided below.

But wait that is not all the developer has in store for us, as another project is also in the works for the PS4., A very cool project (Ps4 Player), while its not released yet the developer is giving plenty of progress reports and some sneak peak video demos of an upcoming media player, Checkout the details and demonstrations in the tab below​
The PS3 saw different Controller Designs and additional Accessories within it's life cycle. The early readers from this Site can probably remember how Sony themselves presented a "boomerang-styled" Controller back at E3 2005, which (sadly?) never saw a release. But as for nearly every Console, there were Game Titles, which supported to be played with additional Accessoires, sometimes they were even mandatory. Either you wanted to play specific Game Titles where a webcam tracked your motion moving by displaying it in-Game, you wanted to get better and faster Results with a Steering Wheel while Racing with other Players online with some fancy Cars, or maybe you really thought you can actually sing (which you can't of course :) ) so you played with some Microphones to sing various Songs in karaoke. But whichever of those mentioned Accessoires you prefered, maybe you want to use them as well when you want to emulate those Game Titles on your PC! How you might ask? Don't worry. This is one of many Improvements which this months Progress Report from the Great Team behind the RPCS3 Emulator is about. So better grab your old Guitar-Controllers and "Let's Rock'n'Roll!" :cool2:
The PlayStation Vita came quite short with some News for this Month. But don't worry. Developer @TheFloW is still there and he has some very good News for your PlayStation Vita today.

Since both the newest System Firmwares 3.69 and 3.70 are still not exploitable, Developer @TheFloW gives you in his newest GitHub Announcement an overview about what you can expect in the next few weeks with the main goal that you can prepare your PlayStation Vita with everything which is necessary needed to jailbreak those mentioned System Firmwares to enjoy your PlayStation Vita again with your favourite Homebrews while staying on the newest System Firmware. And the good thing is, it is actually pretty easy for everyone to get prepared for the Release of his newest Jailbreak! The only thing which could get worse is when you miss his deadline, he gave the community to prepare your PlayStation Vitas. Luckily with the 3G Model, you can finish the preparation while being outside and enjoying the sun together with the start of the spring time, like I already did. :)
