What does a hacked vita have to do with fake games?
Like with any system, you cant play "backed up" or bootleg games without some type of custom firmware running.

slidecage claims to have received a bootleg game, but once people start asking questions and want pictures, he stops responding. He also makes mention of the fact that he was able to play a little bit of this bootlegged game. Unless the Vita was running custom firmware, the game wouldn't have even been recognized if it weren't a legit copy.
The fact is, there are no bootlegs out there yet. If there were, they'd be for games that are selling a ton of copies, like Gravity Rush and Hot Shots, not MLB and Madden. Slidecage, if you sent the picture to Sony, they're not going to email you back and say "Oh yeah that game's fake!" No company would admit to their...as they claim...hack proof console being hacked with bootlegs out there.
So stop trying to scare people. The reason these Maddens are so cheap, is because...like others have said...they're probably from the bundle.
