3w ago - Square Enix Sakura Minamida Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster is coming to PS3 on March 18th, 2014.
To quote: We're thrilled to announce that Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster is coming to North America on March 18th, 2014. We also have a brand new trailer to show off.
Want more of that nostalgic feeling rushing back? You can check out the extended version of the trailer on our official Web site.
But ladies and gentleman, the news doesn't end there. We have completely updated the Limited Edition Packaging with this gorgeous HD render of Tidus and Yuna, which I just absolutely fell in love with when I first saw this image.
We also updated the concept artbook with Yoshitaka Amano's iconic image from Final Fantasy X and X-2. Why did we update it, you ask? It will all make sense later, I promise.
For those of you that didn't know about this until now, you can still pre-order the game and receive a free upgrade to the Limited Edition with the exclusive concept artbook packaging, but quantity is very limited!
To quote: For best performance you should use the MAME romset 0.78. I have tested using lower romsets such as 0.37b5 and that romset worked well, but again for best performance and compatibility you should use 0.78 MAME romset. There are some things to be aware of that i have outlined below. As this is still an experimental core and could have some issues not discovered yet.
MAME romset 0.78 is required for best performance.
At first screen of MAME agreement when ask to type OK, Move Left Stick - Left to Right to signal "OK"
R3 will access the RetroArch Main Menu.
R2 will access the MAME Menu options.
Select in game will add credits to the game.
Core is based on v0.9.8 of RetroArch (not the current 0.9.9).
This is an Experimental Core for the PS3 from Libretro Code Re-depository...
10w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King announced today that the Pinball Arcade is getting a Terminator 2 table on Tuesday.
Below are the details, to quote: Hey there, Playstation gamers! It's been an exciting time for us in bringing pinball table recreations to everyone on PS3 and Vita!
Over the month of September, we've released four classic pinball tables in two packs; Champion Pub, Whirlwind, Flight 2000, and Goin' Nuts. Now, thanks to our amazing supporters and a successful Kickstarter campaign back in July, we'll release Terminator 2: Judgment Day on PSN this Tuesday, as well!
PSN users, are you ready for Judgment Day? This table was released by Williams in 1991 and is unquestionably one of the greatest pinball tables of all time.
It was designed by the legendary Steve Ritchie (who also designed Firepower, Black Knight, High Speed, and Star Trek: The Next Generation). T2 was the first game by Williams to use a dot-matrix display. The table was also the first game to feature a video mode and a swing out cannon that can be fired by the player. It's one of our favorite tables ever!
We hope everyone's been enjoying the releases so far! Also, for those confident in their pinball skills and want to show it, we've begun introducing Tiered Tournaments...
To quote: Hi. The author of this application (Name: doobz) did not give permission for it's release. He claimed he was close to ready, but then he vanished and no one has seen him in months. We do not know of his location or status. It is a mystery.
As such I'm releasing the last version of the tool he provided prior to his disappearance.
Official RetroXMB README (Partial)
RetroXMB is an app that makes it easy to install content on your PS3 XMB. I was sick of using "managers" to load other apps, i wanted it to be like the psp era where you clicked the icon and the app started. So this is my attempt at that
