PS Vita Plays Sega Megadrive/Genesis Games

The Sony PlayStation Vita launched less than a month ago and already, someone has managed to get a Sega Megadrive/Genesis game running on it. Rather than the game being run on an emulator direct, the actual game is running on an emulator within an emulator… meaning that the game is running on the Genesis emulator which runs within the Vita PSP emulator.

Although it’s working as it is now, Sony will likely close the security hole in a future OS update. The emulator hasn’t been made available just yet and is unlikely to be launched because of Sony quickly closing the security hole. For now, the developer behind it is just calling it research.

The video below shows Sonic and Knuckles running on the Vita which actually looks to run well other than the sound which seems to have a few issues.
