One: PS3 Homebrew PSX Game Disc App for 3.55 / 3.41 MFW Out
Just over a month ago we reported on PlayStation (PSX / PSOne) Games working on PS3 3.55 CFW, and today PlayStation 3 developer CrashSerious has released a homebrew application called One which allows users to run PSX game discs on PS3 3.55 or 3.41 MFW Modified Firmware.
The initial version 0.1 is also followed by an update (above) that also supports gamesaves.
To quote: Tonight, to celebrate the last binary date of the century. We bring you a update to one.
Simply, it updates memory card support and works on the following systems:
3.55 MFW Retail/CEX
3.41 MFW Retail/CEX
3.15 MFW Retail/CEX
3.55 MFW Debug/DEX
3.41 MFW Debug/DEX
3.15 MFW Debug/DEX
(Note: one uses "state of the art" firmware detection to apply patches needed, spoofing simply can not fool it.)
Now not only do memory cards work... but those of you who are on MFW 3.15 can use it too. We told you we didn't believe people should go without features!
Initial News: We present to you an app that is as simple and to the point as its name: one
One boots PSX game disks, *ANY* psx game disk, even a game reported to not work previously: SLUS-01104 NFS: Porsche Unleashed
Requirements to use one are pretty simple, MFW 3.41/3.55 (all variants).
Simply install one, and run it with your PSX cd in the drive the game will start after a few seconds. If you do not have a cd in the drive when you start one, it will exit to XMB.
What doesn't work:
Selecting or loading PS1 VMC's
Loading from HDD, sorry... you gotta have the disk people.
Q/A, FAQ, aka Before you ask, look ---\/
Q: Multiman does this, why do it separately?
A: First, just because we wanted to. Secondly, because not everyone runs Multiman, or (crazy as it sounds) even has a backup manager installed. Third, we don't like people having to choose whether or not to lose functionality.
Q: How do I use this?
A: Install the pkg, insert your PSX cd, run one.
Q: How do I install a pkg?
A: Let me google that for you
Maybe not that hard but most probably majority of the developers target their eforts to make mainly PS3 games run flawlessly first ... it's simple question of demand - much more people want play PS3 games and if you really want play PS1 (or even PS2) backups there is always option to use PS1 or PS2 for that, rihgt?
Gotcha. I don't care so much myself since the only PSX titles I would like to play again are the Final Fantasy series. But seeing I also have lots of PS3 title still untouched and only limited time to play I'll just sit back and watch if a hdd solution comes up.
If never then I'll just have to burn some CD's I guess
