178w ago - Update: SKFU has now posted the following update: Ok guys, as Mathieulh is a lot more familiar with PSP related stories, thanks to him I can tell you now that my little idea won't work.
The reason is, that the Datel technique requires the application to run as UPDATE. The PSP runs the program in update mode which the PS3 won't be able to emulate at all. So sorry, no PSP homebrew on PS3, at least not via this way.
Today SKFU (linked above) shared a video of Datel's Action Replay running on official PSP Firmware 6.20, which leaves speculation as to whether the cracked PSP encryption process could lead to PSP homebrew on Sony's PS3 console.
Based on SKFU's idea below, we'll stick this in the PS3 Hacks section where PS3 hacks, exploits, mods, projects and ideas are discussed.
To quote: Datel may had success in cracking the PSP's encryption process and sign EBOOT's to run their own software on official firmwares, including the newest and the PSP Go hardware.
Why do I post it as I only focus on PS3 you may wonder, but hey the PS3 just got it's PSP...
231w ago - A new Blu-ray firmware update has fixed a flaw in the format's DRM, which made the discs susceptible to piracy.
The update is for BD+ and makes the format secure once more, after companies like SlySoft, creators of the AnyDVD HD software, bragged about finding a way around the disc's DRM.
Admittedly, someone called James on the SlySoft forums does think that the new update won't hold for long, saying that he "estimates February 2009 for the new BD+ to be defeated."
While the new update doesn't affect all movies, there are many new releases that it does, including: Futurama: Bender's Game, Shine A Light, and X-Files 2. The full list can be found on the SlySoft forums.
Word about the Blu-ray hack first got out in November, where folks at the Doom9 forum found a DRM get around.
257w ago - The joy of discovering unannounced downloadable game titles on the ESRB's ever-reliable Web site will soon be a thing of the past, as a new policy aimed at halting premature leaks on the site has been put forward, according to an internal memo passed to Web site Next-Gen.
When submitting a new game title to the ESRB's ratings database, publishers will now have the option of entering in specific reveal date, letting the ESRB know exactly when to release information regarding the title to the public.
If no date is specified, the title will automatically appear in the ESRB's public search database 30 days after it has been rated.
Well now, that's certainly exciting news for publishers. As for end-users, not much at all. Guess we'll have to rely on the European rating bodies from this point forward.
