Despite Sony having discontinued development, modders find solace in the PS Vita. Its small form factor design and OLED display on older models make it an intriguing unit. With such an interestingly small library, the handheld is an extremely capable device. Vita hacks have existed for as long as the console’s lifespan and will continue after no doubt. With the final Vita firmware update having been released almost 2 years ago, it’s safe to say Sony is finished with the handheld. With modders finding their way around Vita’s processor, more apps and ports are being made for the handheld. After successful ports of the recent Final Fantasy pixel remasters and GTA trilogy, the PS Vita has received another unofficial port. Announced this morning was the release of a Crazy Taxi Vita port.

How Does the Vita Port of Crazy Taxi Actually Play?
While the unofficial Vita ports have always been a part of the hacking scene, Crazy Taxi is certainly one coveted title on the device. While the emulator works and games run, the performance and compatibility are certainly a work in progress. This port of Crazy Taxi is using the mobile port. Explaining some of the low polygonal counts on characters and screen controls, the mobile port is still a perfectly capable version of Crazy Taxi. Featuring all of the same content and action as the console release, the mobile port performs quite well on the PS Vita. While Crazy Taxi is by no means an intensive arcade game, it’s still a fun arcade racing title. To play the game, one would need a hacked Vita and download the required files. Loading the game into the Vita’s memory allows for the title to play seamlessly.
