Homebrew Genesis emulator running on a PlayStation Vita, done by Wololo using the Half Byte Loader and some secret techniques.
Don’t get too excited.
First, you’ll notice that the emulation is not super great. Second, this is actually using the Vita’s PSP emulation, so even at best it would only be possible to make code that would be easier to run, and operate just as well, on the PSP.
Third, Wololo points out (in a somewhat dramatic fashion) that the Content Manager Assistant used to transfer stuff from the PC to Vita can require firmware updates, and (I’m not so sure about this bit) possibly monitor transfers.
So, this may not represent a homebrew-friendly or piracy-laden future for the Vita. Just a neat trick that’s possible on the launch hardware.
