has posted a video (below) on YouTube today that demonstrates a PS3 "Hello World" Proof-Of-Concept.
Needless to say, today is the day before April 1st (April Fool's Day), however, dragula96
has been a long-standing contributer of several development boards (including PS2Dev) for several years... so we have opted give him the benefit of the doubt for the time being and dubbed this a "rumor"
He also states he is attempting to get a game of Pong working, and that he will share the method and source code in time.
According to dragula96
, this does not require any hardware modification and the method has been tested on a PS3 40GB and 60GB console- both of which have current 2.20 Firmware and are retail models, not development models!
To quote: In the video, you can see some tape on my TV, that is to hide MAC and IP addresses... there are no cuts in video at all.
I have spent somewhere around 9 hours to get this working, and I hope you guys don't think this is a fake.. I have a good reputation in the PSP scene. I would not release something if it was fake (even if it is close to April Fool's Day).
I do not know the extent of which the discovery will let me program, but I seriously doubt this will lead to any iSO loader, it does however have the potential of enabling homebrew game programming I believe.
Legit, or an early April Fool's Day joke? You decide!
