Sony pulls PSP title Everybody’s Tennis from PS Store due to potential Vita homebrew exploit

PSP title Everybody’s Tennis has been pulled from the PS Store over a potential vulnerability that could allow users to run homebrew content on the recently released PlayStation Vita, with which the title is compatible. Motorstorm Arctic Edge was similarly removed shortly after the system’s launch in February.

Although the exploit wouldn’t allow players to utilise any pirated software, it would apparently enable the use of emulators and other homebrew programmes on the system.

Sony have been going to great lengths to protect the Vita against piracy, a large issue it previously admitted that the PSP had struggled with. Indeed, SVP of worldwide studios Scott Rohde told Gamasutra in February this year that anti-piracy methods were “front and centre in the early specs of this machine. We needed to have something that would combat piracy from day one, and that's why the cards that you can purchase for the games are in their own proprietary format”.
