Sony has officially announced plans to fully discontinue shipments of the PlayStation Vita in Japan this year, a statement which came a couple of months after they had announced the discontinuation of game cartridge production for the system. Now, as of March 1st 2019, the official pages for the remaining 2 models which were being produced, the PCH-2000 ZA11 (black) and PCH-2000 ZA23 (aqua blue), have been appended with the statement "shipment ended", now meaning that no further systems are being manufactured at all.
The Vita was launched in December 2011, enduring a fluctuating amount of praise and support until it was gradually abandoned by Sony and major AAA title developers in just a mere few years. Fortunately, the flourishing amount of third-party support in which the Vita had gained over the years just showed how spectacular the system could still be in the current generation.

Lapy the developer of Save The Scene and El Pollo games has released a homebrew application and despite its strange name, it is actually a PS4 Homebrew.

Windows Explorer is a file manager for the PS4, it lets you do a whole bunch of file management with actions such as the ability to copy, paste and delete files, you can also listen your favourite music directly from the application whilst you are browsing your files and you can also use it as an image viewer, here is a quote from the developer:
As stated in the title, this homebrew is a Beta and as such has some problems, such as video having no sound which is noted by the developer, however through testing i found some problems myself and i will list them below to help the developer improve the application:
  • Movement is fast - I am not sure if this is a bug or something set to personal preference, but i found going through the files and such were quite fast as well as navigating the menu that contains the copy/paste functions being fast.
  • Large Image Files - I am not sure if this is a bug or something to do with memory limitations, but trying to view large image files is a slow process, after selecting the image it takes a few seconds to show, also viewing some large images causes the app to crash, this only happened to one of the image files though.
  • Weird Copy/Paste Bug - The first time i tried copying a file and pasting it on my Thumb Drive, the application showed an error, then crashed/froze.
Everything i have spoken about can be viewed in the video below:


Keep in mind that this version is a beta and problems will occur, to report any problem alert the developer here:

I am sure by now many of you have heard about a demo called P.T, the game was to be the next Silent Hill game for the PS4 and was being made by Hideo Kojima, news emerged of how badly Konami was treating it's employees, Silent Hill got cancelled and Kojima left the company.

However things would take a more sinister turn, Konami tried to delete all existence of P.T from the internet, Sony removed the ability to download the demo from the PS Store and the only way for PS4 owners to enjoy it was via a hacked PS4.

But these type of obstacles inspire people to do awesome things, someone created a version of the demo for PC owners and recently VitaHeX released a version of the demo for PS Vita owners, here is a quote from the developer:

There are a few ways of installing homebrew applications on the PS4, we can use a Thumb Drive/External HDD and we can use @flatz remote PKG method which @TOXXIC407 has utilised to make a homebrew store, both these methods require some sort of external addition, USB of course is the Thumb Drive and Toxxic's PS Store require external access via a PC/Tablet/Phone.

@LightningMods_ tweeted about an application he was working on Twitter last week:


Store is a homebrew store created with Liborbis and lets you download homebrew directly to your PS4 without any additional devices, it works just like a normal game would from the Official PS Store, the game gets downloaded and installed:

Whilst i do think the app is a great idea and runs quickly, there are a couple of gripes i have, the text on the "home screen" messes with my eyes, it has 3D or double vision effect and when selecting which homebrew you want to install, a small purple square floats about the screen, it is an alpha, so perhaps these problems will not exist in the final release.

Pros:
Direct download to your PS4.

Cons:
Slow, but then it is an alpha and hopefully it gets optimised to run quicker.


Most North American Nintendo fans will be familiar with the name of Reggie Fils-Aime, the current head of Nintendo of America. It appears that his body is no longer ready, however, as 2019 will be his last year with the company. On April 15, he will retire from his position at Nintendo, and will be replaced by Doug Bowser, the VP of sales and marketing. Reggie began work at NOA 15 years ago, starting as the VP of marketing in 2003, and quickly rising to the rank of president in 2006, becoming well known to fans in the region through his personality and jokes during conferences and Nintendo Direct videos.

After more than 15 notable years at Nintendo of America, and nearly 13 as its President and COO, Reggie Fils-Aime will retire. His last day with Nintendo will be April 15. Doug Bowser, NOA’s current Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, will then succeed Reggie as President of Nintendo of America.

“I really appreciate everything Reggie has done for Nintendo,” said Shuntaro Furukawa, President of Nintendo Co., Ltd. “Inside and outside our company, Reggie is known as an exceptional leader. We are grateful that he is leaving the business in good shape with strong momentum. While we will miss him and we wish him the very best in his retirement, we are also pleased to have such an able successor ready to step into that role. Doug Bowser and the rest of the team will ensure a seamless transition and continued momentum for Nintendo.”

“Nintendo owns a part of my heart forever,” Fils-Aime said. “It’s a part that is filled with gratitude – for the incredibly talented people I’ve worked with, for the opportunity to represent such a wonderful brand, and most of all, to feel like a member of the world’s most positive and enduring gamer community. As I look forward to departing in both good health and good humor, this is not ‘game over’ for me, but instead ‘leveling up’ to more time with my...​

If any of you keep up with the PS3 scene, you will have known that Sony released firmware 4.84, i do not know why they did it, because it didn't fix any stability issues nor did it patch any exploits.

As with most OFW releases on the PS3, we also get a CFW equivalent, which is exactly what Bobby_Downgrades has done with his various variations of his CFW which he calls "Overflow", they are as follows:

  • 4.84 Overflow v1 standard cex edition
  • 4.84 Overflow v2 dualboot edition
  • 4.84 Overflow v3 standard cex noBD edition
  • 4.84 Overflow v4 standard cex noBT edition
  • 4.84 Overflow v5 cobra 7.55 cex edition
  • 4.84 Overflow v6 cobra 7.55 cex noBD edition
  • 4.84 Overflow v7 cobra 7.55 cex noBT edition

@DEFAULTDNB has released version 1.5.5 of X-Project, for those of you who have been living in a cave for the past year, X-Project is an easy to use exploit host software that you either run on your PC, upload to your public webserver or install on your ESP8266 Wi-Fi device



X-Project's user interface looks like the PS3's XMB and lets you do a whole bunch of awesome things, such as run various different versions of HEN, block firmware updates, dump games, install Linux and much, much more, here is a list of what is new or changes in this version:

  • Triple version bump due to LOTS OF NEW things [​IMG]
  • Version number is displayed in multiple places so you know which version you're using.
  • Improved information panel, now shows more information so you know whats going on
(Can be hidden or shown again by clicking show/hide, perma-hidden or perma-showing based on toggle)
  • X-Project (not PS4) debug menu is now able to be perma-toggled)
(New hidden goat icon for test payload!)
  • Fixed debug menu "ghost column" issue (been there since day one!)
  • Added Cache and FW detection, along with network/tracking/and true firmware detection (from cold boot).

These are only a small amount of changes in the list, to see the complete changelog and download this software, visit the source:

Update

@DEFAULTDNB has released the ESP8266 version of X-Project, as X-Project needs to be cached on the PS4, ESP devices are basically redundant now, at least for X-Project and in this case it only acts as a method to transfer the host software over, here are the changes in this version:

  • - removed Mira+hen1.8+VR payload.
  • - removed a few extraneous Mira+hen payloads.
  • - removed usb cache and applicationcache payloads.
  • + under the hood fixes.
