3d ago - IGN Senior Editor Colin Moriarty announced today that the IGN PlayStation application is out today on PS4.
Below are the details, to quote: Greetings once again, PlayStation.Blog! My name's Colin, IGN's Senior Editor.
You may have seen me skulking around IGN PlayStation and making terrible predictions on Podcast Beyond, but today, I'm not here to make any pizza bets with you. No, I'm here to tell you about something exciting we've cooked up for PS4 owners.
IGN for PlayStation, our new app for PS4, is available today, and I'm pleased to tell you that you can download it for yourself - free of charge - when PlayStation Store updates. The app is currently exclusive to PS4, and will come to PS3 and PS Vita next year.
How does this benefit you, exactly? IGN's PS4 app will make you more popular with your friends, give you more energy, and even make the food you eat taste better (that's not true). But more importantly, our PS4 app will give you direct access to all of IGN's video content, letting you create custom playlists, while finding and consuming the exact content you're seeking.
What's truly cool about the app, however, is how granular you can get with it. You can rapidly come in and out of full-screen view, minimize a video...
4d ago - Following up on his previous releases, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer KW (via kokotonix) has updated to PSN Patch v1.06 for PS3 Custom Firmware, which allows users to temporarily disable their CFW, spoof their Console ID and more as detailed below.
To quote: Hello guys, i am new here but i want to share a tool I made for Dualshock 4 controllers. I was inspired by the tool made by Scarlet.Crush for DS3.
My tool works in similar fashion and is based on source code from DS3 Scp Tool.
It works though without messing with the original drivers for DS4. Uses DirectInput to XInput mapping. You still need to install drivers for SCP virtual bus device and possible X360 Controller drivers.
Currently all buttons/Axis work like they should. No support for rumble and controlling light to indicate controller number.
Shortly I will make a video demonstrating the tool.

3w ago - Appy Entertainment Brand Director Paul O'Connor announced that Trucks and Skulls hits PlayStation Mobile today.
Below are the details, to quote: Appy Entertainment is excited to bring our award-winning physics puzzler, Trucks & Skulls, to PlayStation Mobile later on today. This is a subtle game that invites you to explore your feelings and pick pretty flowers, a game that firmly positions itself at the center of the games-as-art debate, a game that...
Oh, wait. It's not that at all. Trucks & Skulls is the game where you SMASH NITRO-BURNING MONSTER TRUCKS INTO PILES OF LAUGHING SKULLS.
We made Trucks & Skulls because we wanted to blow stuff up. It really was that simple. We felt the physics-puzzler genre could use a good boot to the backside with a game full of things that explode, so we created the loudest, most obnoxious, most explosive game possible. Trucks & Skulls is a fuel-soaked, heavy metal ball of boom. Playing our game is guaranteed to raise your blood pressure, and lower your IQ.
The physics model used by the game is quite sophisticated, but you should check your sophistication at the door - this really is an angry and exuberant game that doesn't take itself seriously. There's no hidden meaning. Trucks are good, Skulls are bad. Destroy Skulls!
To quote via e-mail: Hi I created a little tool to help out converting all those fun game rips to iso form. This is my contribution back to the PS3 scene. Hope this helps everybody.
PS3 GAME (RIP-TO-ISO) MASS CONVERTER will convert all game rips in any game folder you drag and drop onto the CONVERT_TO_ISO.BAT file. It can also continue converting where you left off if suddenly you stop the program or your PC shuts off or whatever the scenario that may happen.
All options you select don't take place until you have a chance to review and finalize everything. What could of taken you a few days or longer to do manually can now possibly be done over night or a few hours.

IMPORTANT NOTE: (A LOT OF EFFORT WAS PUT INTO THE DESIGN AND TESTING OF THIS APP TO INSURE RESULTS BUT THE SAME...
