The Vita3K projectis creating a PS Vita emulator
Select a membership level
What is this?It's a work-in-progress PlayStation Vita emulator.
Why is it needed?With the PlayStation Vita approaching end-of-life, there has never been a more important time to preserve compatibility with the existing PS Vita software library.
Given that the PS4 doesn't run PS Vita software (or even PS3 or PSP software for that matter), we can't rely on Sony to maintain compatibility with PS Vita software in the future. We need to step up and build that compatibility ourselves.
CompatibilityThe emulator currently runs a couple of homebrew programs. I need your help to expand support to cover more of the PS Vita software library. That means supporting more homebrew software, as well as backups you've made of your own PS Vita games.
