If you have a PlayStation TV collecting dust in a cabinet somewhere, this might make it useful again. A user called \"mr.gas\" from the Hackinformer forum has detailed how you can tweak the device to play games that it's currently not compatible with. The best thing about the procedure is it's actually doable, even if you're not that adept at hacking hardware. You only need to send PS TV a message from your email app with the writer.eml file attached (a download link can be found on the source's website) and renamed as #0 without an extension.
As you can see, there is no truly elegant solution to making the PS Vita fully backward compatible with the PSP library, but hacking the console does grant gamers the ability to download backups of the original PSP games onto the Vita. Generally, digital copies of PSP games are preferable, as the drive on the PSP hardware is pretty noisy when reading discs. 1e1e36bf2d
