48w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer condorstrike has shared some video demo footage of Pointman: The Akkadian Wars PS3 homebrew game POC for PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware users with details below.

Download: POINTMAN.pkg

To quote: Hi guys, it’s been hard finding time for the ps3 with so much going on at work and home, that’s the reason i decided to release the pointman beta as a (poc). wish I had more time to complete it and polish it, another reason is that the PS4 is around the corner, and I’m also making a pc game.

Pointman: the Akkadian Wars The game is a throwback to 80′s and 90′s styling and music, all of it was built for you guys as a proof of concept that with some time and creativity cool things can be accomplished. This game will run in CFWs 3.55 and 4.xx. There will be bugs!

Powerups are mostly disabled, and there’s a glitch on some textures loading, but it’s rare. I do a small homage to the scene in the credits, but you’ll have to finish the level first, good luck with that... lol, forget about HARD mode, even I can’t finish it, so use EASY.

If you let the MAIN MENU run, you’ll get to see the story, 80′s style.

70w ago - Following up on his previous release, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer condorstrike has shared a video preview of a PS3 homebrew game he's working on entitled Pointman below.

From his blog, to quote: Hi guys, here’s a preview of my PS3 Homebrew game “Pointman the Akkadian wars”

It is still in development and this video is more of a teaser, since every time I give myself an ETA I keep adding new stuff and keep delaying the release.

The video is of the main menu and story intro, no gameplay (WIP) hope you like it. caw!




Finally, also from condorstrike comes a PS3LoadX PKG test file, who states the following:

I've been doing some testing myself with mixed results, good to hear about Solar. I have this one pkg to test, a new version of ps3loadx, can you or anyone else test this? If this one works it would allow launching of Selfs.

74w ago - Following up on his previous work, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer condorstrike has released Condor Updater 3 followed by v3.1 for PS3, which offers a pseudo-recovery mode system firmware update from the XMB.

Download: Condor Updater 3 PS3 Homebrew Application / Condor Updater 3 PS3 Homebrew Application (Mirror) / Condor Updater 3.1 PS3 Homebrew Application / Condor Updater 3.1 PS3 Homebrew Application (Mirror)

From his blog (linked above): Hi guys, I took a short break from Pointman, my upcoming PS3 Homebrew video game, and decided to investigate what Sony did to prevent Condor Updater from working on 4.xx.

After some coffee and hair pulling it seems the culprit was one of my protection checks implemented in v2.0, so I re-wrote it and added a nice PIC1.PNG and ICON0.PNG, and now it works on 4.xx CFWs.

MD5:...
