30w ago - Earlier today a purported PlayStation 4 / PS4 E3 2013 trailer went viral on YouTube, and has since been confirmed as a fake by Sony.
Below are the details via Kotaku (linked above) alongside the PlayStation 4 / PS4 trailer for those who missed it:
That Cool 'PS4 Teaser' Is A Fake, Sony Says - Whoever made this clip wants you to believe it’s the first look at the PlayStation 4 hardware. But, Sony tells me it's a fake. Too bad.
Nevertheless, I wouldn't blame someone just wandering over onto the Internet for guessing it wasn't. Let's consider the footage, shall we? Sure, E3 is right around the corner and the super-slick 44-second video seems like it might be the work of a professional creative shop.
The facial reaction shots are intercut with looks at an already-announced PS4 game - Infamous: Second Son, in case it's not clear - and hardware but the images and video in those segments are readily available all over the Web. And the supposed hardware could be one of the many fan-made renders that are jostling for attention on the Internet.
Granted, this could be the work of MOFILM, the firm that Sony recently hired to handle crowd-sourced advertising. As good as it looks, it almost certainly be the work of a dedicated fan looking to capitalize on the excitement leading...
51w ago - Following up on their previous PS3 DEX update, Italian PlayStation 3 developer Rancid (o) of PS3ITA has made available Install Fake BDEmu PKG alongside a usage guide below on how to create and emulate Dummy BDEmu for those using a PS3 DEX CFW console with a broken BD player.
The Dummy BDEmu occupies only 2MB on your USB device, then after you can partition the remaining space as you want.
To quote, roughly translated: How to Create and Emulate Dummy_BDEmu Your BD Player Broke on CFW DEX Tutorial
In this tutorial PS3ITA will guide you with all the necessary steps to achieve the "dummy_bdemu" directly from the console. This procedure is useful to all users who use a CFW DEX (debug / test) on a console that has the blu-ray disc broken or simply for those who do not want to wear the player's lens for intensive use.
In fact, the "dummy_bdemu" is to appear on the XMB icon BD player despite the absence of the disc, increasing, therefore, the compatibility of...
231w ago - A fake Dragon Quest IX ROM is currently in circulation online, and those who download and run the ROM can expect to receive a bricked Nintendo DS system.
The supposed rom is actually DarkFader's slideshow bricker released a few years back.
To quote from Triforce of DS-Scene (linked above):
Just a heads up in case anyone sees this release and gets excited, Dragon Quest IX JPN DSi Enhanced NDS iND is fake. Someone released it on 2chan claiming to have dumped the game early providing this image as proof the game was out.
In fact if you choose to check it out for yourself you will see it's actually a hentai slideshow called DS Owata. Images below are censored due to the graphic content.
I guess this was to be expected and has happened with a few other major releases in the past. The fake Zelda that retrohead (ds-scene's founder) released a couple of years ago springs to mind. Skip the small fry!
I cant believe I didn't notice this at first, I think this is actually the slideshow bricker DarkFader released years ago.
249w ago - The PS3 HDD getting decrypted is starting to become quite the joke of the week for anyone not blind in both eyes.
At first, it seemed like there was some truth to it and many of us were quite excited, as the files looked legitimate.
The files were infact, real. Unknown to many (including NDT) at the time, they were just from the PS3's flash filesystem that was accessible with a PS3 TEST.
As we dug deeper, we found out that it was all a web of lies, and what little research was done was stolen from knightsolidus by DemonHades.
Uninformed sites are posting a "decryption" How-to Guide that is nothing but a false proof positive. Said method (involving swapping blocks of known encrypted data for unknown), was used by many of our DEVS including NDT and ggparallel...
