38w ago - NIS America Marketing Coordinator Ryan Phillips has announced that Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory lands on PS3 today alongside a video trailer below.
To quote: Greetings, doods! How goes things? Ryan from NISA here, dropping by to let you know that Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory releases today in North America exclusively for PlayStation 3!
It's time again to join the exuberant and extremely awesome Neptune and her gaggle of CPU goddess buddies for a brand-new adventure in Gamindustri!
For those new to the Hyperdimension Neptunia series, it is a turn-based comedy RPG set in a world called Gamindustri, which is governed by different CPU Goddesses. Each goddess is actually a living and playable personification of the different video game consoles that we all have come to hold dear to our hearts.
As the player, you take the role of the main character, Neptune, and along with a whole slew of strong female counterparts, it's your job to make sure that order reigns supreme in Gamindustri!
So what's putting Gamindustri at risk this time around? Victory begins several years after Neptune's sister Nepgear...
80w ago - Previously we reported on several other PS3 cheating devices, and today Kotaku (linked above) has announced that a modern-day Game Genie Save Editor by Hyperkin for the PlayStation 3 is slated to debut at E3 2012 and launch on July 17th offering maximum lives and more.
Apparently it works through a USB flash drive that contains an installation program that allows you to transfer save files between the PS3 and PC.
A PC program in the USB drive will write cheats onto your save files allowing you to then transfer the edited save files from PC back to the PS3. It also will include a continuously updated server that adds new codes to the newest games.
To quote: "The Game Genie works by modifying save data with cheat codes that unlock a variety of possibilities. The Game Genie: Save Editor for PS3 is the first code device amongst any competitor's products that actually manipulates save files and works for the PS3. Hyperkin will debut the Game Genie: Save Editor for PS3 at E3, the premier trade show for the video game industry.

To quote: This is incredible, hackers are making big progress towards reverse engineering the hypervisor on the PS3. The latest work and release comes from a developer who goes by the name 'user'-which is a hypervisor debugging tool that can run from GameOS.
The tasks can be performed using this tool: Com Lib debug, Storage Manager debug, SB Manager debug, Update Manager debug, SYSCON debug, Dispatch Manager debug, VTRM debug, and patch Dispatch Manager policies.
• Enable debug for some HV services
• Patch Dispatch Manager policies (allow everything)

Also, some new updates on Dispatcher Manager utilities for PS3 Linux repository.
Today Graf_Chokolo announced that he has successfully exploited the PS3 hypervisor 3.15 through GameOS and dumped it, and plans to do the same for version 3.41 along with sharing more details soon.
Here is what he had to say on the matter, to quote: "I have just exploited and dumped HV 3.15 from GameOS
I used memory glitching like Geohot to get dangling HTAB entry but 2nd and 3rd stages are quite different. I used my knowledge about HV internals and created a simpler exploit for stage2 and stage3.
I didn’t use second VAS like Geohot. I used lv1_undocumented_function_114 and lv1_undocumented_function_115...
