It is now officially
confirmed that the EUR PS3
launch release date will be March 23, 2007
for those eagerly awaiting their PS3
! Over 30 launch titles will be available, with the 60GB version retailing for £425. $ony may roll out the 20GB at a later date as well. Update:
The USA 1.5 Firmware Update
is also now available for PS3
. It's also confirmed that the 1.5
update fixes backwards compatibility graphics glitch issues making PS1/PS2 games aperfectly fine now! Once again, until we receive further word we recommend you don't update to 1.50
at this time- more to come soon!
Also in Wii
news tonight, a Wii DVD Drive Serial Tool
is now available which allows you to connect your Wii
drive to your PC via Linux for "testing" using this tool. Also included are Wii
drive and mainboard pictures along with Chip and Port listings.
As mentioned by seminolecounty
in the ongoing New PS3 Update true?
Forum thread, it is confirmed that the Japanese 1.5 Firmware Update
is now available... with the US version expected tomorrow as well.
To quote from the previous PS3 1.5 Hits Japan
article on the changes:
The big change this time around seems to be in the form of payment options for the PlayStation Store. While the store has been limited exclusively payment via credit card until now, the PS3 will now be able to accept "Edy" system pre-paid electronic money. You're required to have an IC Reader/Writer attached to your PS3 in order to use this system. Readers are now available for the PC.
Other changes include support for Korean language input via keyboard and updated PlayStation and PlayStation 2 backwards compatibility.
And now on to the interesting stuff... many of our viewers have been reluctant to update their PS3
Firmware out of fear that an upcoming PS3 iSO Loader
will not work on it. Today, we had a chance to speak briefly with the GODs @ Paradox
... who have confirmed
for us that, referring only
to their own of course, the PS3
iSO Loader will work on PS3
Firmware up to v1.32
! This means if you have not updated to v1.32
out of fear that a future iSO Loader will not work, you can now do so with peace of mind. However, until they have a chance to examine 1.50 we have been told NOT to update to it yet to be safe. More to come as it's available!
news today, six new
iSO dumps include: GT_Pro_Series_NTSC_Wii-VORTEX
, and Barnyard_NTSC_Wii-VORTEX
. Also, Rawdump Wii Disc Dumper v1-5
is now available, which claims to be 5x faster
dumping and no longer requires DVDInfoPro. Changelog is as follows, and use our ongoing Rawdump Wii Disc Dumper released!
Forum thread for feedback:
- Using streamed reading (about 5 times faster)
- Better info display
- No need for dvdinfo in the background
