To quote, roughly translated: Onishin, a member of our forums and developer, today gives us a nice homebrew named OpenPS3FTPsplit and is a mod source code of version 2.3 of OpenPS3FTP, the famous FTP server designed by jjolano.
This program has a unique feature that most practical of the split files larger than 4GB on a transfer via FTP. Understand by this that if you want a transfer of these files on the internal hard drive of your console or an external hard drive (FAT32) that is connected, you simply start the copy and the software will automatically split it.
But to avoid splits that you close all your files that you transfer, which could be annoying in the long run, it divides the files in question in each part of 4GB only if the following condition is met: the files you want to transfer...
149w ago - I created a small program called PS3 Split File 2011 v1.0 in Delphi to help all users in PlayStation 3. With this program we can now split file a ps3 game larger than 4Gb so can only pass to the internal hard drive by a USB HDD.
159w ago - We've seen the GT5 unboxing with some Gran Turismo 5 Signature Edition pictures, and today GamersMint.com (linked above) confirms via amar212 at GTPlanet.net that Gran Turismo 5 has an optional 40-minute 6.4GB PS3 HDD installation with the US game being reported as 19.4GB (20,882,698,502 bytes) with the EU version coming in at 13.72GB in size.

However, interestingly, he says that the game will continue to install and decompress data throughout the course of your playtime and the actual disk space taken by the game on your PS3 will be a lot more.
Kindly note that this installation is optional and you can play the game without doing this. It only requires 256 MB of your HDD if you decide against doing it but it's highly...
215w ago - Even though Final Fantasy XIII was reported earlier today to require no PlayStation 3 HDD installation, Tekken 6 (available October 27 in North America) appears to have an optional 4GB PS3 install.
According to Tekken 6 game director Katsuhiro Hirada, the stages will be bigger and will have more interactivity- such as walls or floors that can be broken to reveal new fighting areas. The character customization feature has been enhanced, and will be more involved with the gameplay.
To quote: "Namco Bandai's Tekken 6 on PS3 features an optional 4GB install, which massively reduces loading times.
Without the install, matches can take around 15 seconds to load, while installed copies take just a couple of seconds to get you into the fighting.
While this will come as a nice bonus for players with a new Slim PS3, owners of older, lower capacity 'Fat' PS3's like the 40GB model may be stuck playing the waiting game if they're already struggling for space."
268w ago - Knoxximus has found a method which allows 4GB SD cards (non-SDHC) to be fully utilized as a Wii storage card.
To quote: For the people who DON'T LIKE TO READ, THIS SOLUTION ALLOWS YOU TO USE AN OTHERWISE UNSUPPORTED SIZE SD CARD (4GB) TO ITS FULL POTENTIAL AND STILL HAVE VERY DECENT TRANSFER SPEEDS!
Okay! Now we all know that Nintendo's official line is that cards larger than 2GB will not work on the Wii...and for the most part this is true. However...what about a 4GB SD (NOT SDHC) card that PRETENDS it's a 2GB, but then over time can be slowly expanded to meet it's 4GB potential?
I scoured the net for info on how to get this to work, and now I present to you the fruits of my labor. Here is a mini FAQ on how to get 4GB SD cards to work on your Wii.
1st of all, get a hold of this non-SDHC SD card. Here is a link at NewEgg where it is $10.75.
OK! So you got your SD card. You'll notice that if you format it through Windows or your Disk Management, regardless if you do FAT/FAT16/FAT32, the Wii will NOT recognize it. No problem. Google and download an app called SDFormatter. Better yet, just use this link.
