Could it be that VITA has finally gotten the in-game footage capture so many have desired? Coobe!
It appears a Japanese modder has managed to bust open the VITA and harvest the sweet, sweet [VIDEO-OUT] nectar within the berry-colored handheld (shown above). The mod can be purchased here (erm somehow, if you can manage to understand Japanese!).
Before we start calling the guy doing this a fraud (or start pelting him with our old PSP's as rocks), this mod isn't just for that VITA. It appears (at least) one other Youtuber has managed to get their hands on this Capture card modified VITA thing,
With another Youtuber (TheASHfire06) also going on record saying that he too has ordered one of these tall drinks.
Hmm. Still! One must wonder if this is a safe kinda thing to buy into. Sure, you can be one of the few Youtubers out there with direct feed VITA footy. But at what cost? Welp, it's currently 41 800 JPY! So, the mod'ed VITA cost over twice the price of a regular Japanese VITA (after SCEJ recently announced the price cut). Is it worth it? That all depends. Personally, I think it is still a big risk to spend close to $500 on something like this but if more Youtubers wind up buying it and putting up LP's, than I think it could turn into bank for whoever is doing this mod.
