Next up, just under a month ago in a Blog Entry we hinted about a RUMOR regarding a possible PS3 $DK (and potential v1.60 JAP FW SRC- 87MB) leak soon. This alleged leak 'package' of approximately 670MB in size also contains [Register or Login to view links] files, tools, docs, emulator, compiler, pkg_distrb_packmkg.so (Linux), home_gdc07_xmbextc.elf (upcoming game PS3 DEV executable), etc... and the nice part is the watermarks have been completely removed according to the source.
The source, who has been a licensed $CEE developer for 12 years in Germany, also mentioned that "in a future $DK release, the format of CFS (Cell File System) will be changed... thus, reformatting of the built-in hard disk may be required." He went on to tell us "we are focusing on work with Vaio at the moment... so it's possible the next PlayStation may be called something along the lines of PS VAIO/PSP VAIO." Finally, the source hinted to us the following: "wait for Getaway... it's the only PS3 game in development here at the moment which is using the Cell CPU as it has to be used!"
With that being said, due to obvious NDA restrictions the source wishes to remain anonymous. There are no confirmations of the alleged leak 'package' being publically available yet... but we here at Team PS3News would love to see one surface soon- hopefully the powers that be are listening.
