In an attempt to close security loopholes in the PlayStation Vita, Sony has taken to removing PSP titles from the PlayStation Store, the titles includes Motorstorm: Arctic Edge (subtltled Raging Ice in Japan) and Everybody’s Tennis. The move will uncertain that those who bought the games earlier now are unable to download them again.
The hackers at Wololo.net on March 1st first publicly announced that their homebrew Vita Half Byte Loader (VHBL) worked by exploiting a vulnerability in a downloadable copy of the PSP title Motorstorm: Arctic Edge, releasing a video of Doom being loaded onto the system by way of proof. Sony responded quickly, removing Motorstorm from the PlayStation Store just before VHBL was officially released the next day. Wololo claims its VHBL hack is useful only for running homebrew software and not for playing pirated PSP or Vita games
