96w ago - Hi guys, this is Condorstrike thanking PS3 NEWS for all their support and involvement in the PS3 scene, and for allowing me to announce the opening of Tortuga-Cove.com which includes my new MultiMAN Theming Tutorial WIP on our Forums.
Tortuga-Cove.com is a Web site created by Gamers for Gamers, including me and some great friends from the PS3 scene, like S4BRE, moogie, and GoTiT4FrE. We offer news and discussions about gaming in general for all consoles, but our PlayStation 3 roots are obvious; also the great developer Rogero, themer Opium2k and other great guys from different scenes are involved in this project.
I consider PS3 NEWS my home cause of their support and professionalism, so this just means I have two homes.
Also follow up on my newest app Solar, still working hard on it with no eta yet... but with Rogero's help, I might bring something new and cool to the scene... i'll keep you updated, and hope for a fast release.
Stay tuned for more PS3 Hacks and PS3 CFW news, follow us on Twitter and be sure to drop by the PS3 Hacks and PS3 Custom Firmware Forums for the latest PlayStation 3 scene updates and homebrew releases!
