To quote: What is XMBPC?

XMB is a cloned XMB interface that is on the PSP / PS3 main menu. This app mimics the XMB interface (not the system) for use on your PC. So you have the ability to manage all your Videos, Music, Pictures. Just as you would on those Sony Devices but now on a PC.

Following up on his previous release, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer SvenGDK has made available XMBPC v3 Beta followed by details on v3.0.1 with the changelogs outlined below.

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

Changelogs v3.0.0

  • Changed back to beta (Read why: twitlonger.com/show/n_1s142gp or below)
  • Completely new fullscreen setup
  • You can now protect XMBPC with a password (will get updates with a lockscreen)
  • Updated emulators, now detecting if x32 or x64 to have a better performance
  • Fixed: No Games showing
  • Other minor fixes

Changelogs v3.0.0 - v3.0.1

  • Emulators will not more start twice
  • Gameintro should not more be laggy

Hi followers! After some hours of thinking about XMBPC, I'm ready to change some things and to talk about it.

But first, I would like to thank you all for testing and sharing XMBPC. Since the v1 release in June 2013 until now I count over 20000 downloads, which is for me more than adequate

Now to the changes I would like to do... The release status of XMBPC will be reverted back to beta, since there are alot of bugs which really need to be fixed first.

For a stable release, the basic functions must work for everyone, but this isn't the case here. The current release will get an update soon which changes only the name of the tool, so don't worry about missing features or something else

What about XMBOSX now after this changes?

XMBOSX will NOT be available within the next 3-6 months because there are really alot of features I can't make possible on OS X with a "Wine" port and I don't really have the time to learn Objective-C beside the school...

So I need someone which could realize this properly with Objective-C or you will have to wait until I learn it myself (I will learn it sure in the near future).

Any news about the PS3 emulation?

Yes, there is a PS3 emulator in development. It will be implemented as soon as the hardware emulation is accurate enough to run official PS3 games

If you want to update v1.0.9 to v1.1 via System Update feature or with an update pkg, then you need to download the updated "XMBPC Updater.exe" from here: 85.31.189.150/XMBPCE/XMBPC%20Updater.exe and place it into your XMBPC directory. This file has been updated 20mins before, so users of v1.1 are also asked to replace the existing "XMBPC Updater.exe" file because of an important update.

Update PKG v1.0.9 to v1.1.0: 85.31.189.150/XMBPCE/UPDATES/UPDATE_v109_v110.PKG (If you don't replace the Updater before updating then the language and ps1loader files will not be updated.)

  • Added on XMBPC Setup the possibility to add DS (*.nds), Gamecube (*.gcm) & Wii (*.iso) games.
