78w ago - Sony Senior Producer Stuart Platt has announced today that the Starhawk Mobile Uplink is now available on Android and iOS with a video of it in action below.

105w ago - Today Sony's associate brand marketing manager Crystal MacKenzie has confirmed that PS Vita PSN accounts are linked to the handheld's memory cards and not the device itself for those wondering.
Essentially this means those who like bringing their gamer profile and downloadable games over to a friends house to show them off will probably like the PlayStation Vita since the PSN accounts are bonded to the memory card they're downloaded to.
To quote from GameInformer.com (linked above): "Your PSN ID is bonded to your memory card and your memory card is bonded to your Vita," Sony associate brand marketing manager Crystal MacKenzie told Wired.
"So if you wanted to change different PSN users but use the same memory card, you would need to go factory reset."
So accessing your PSN account and games is as easy as swapping out the memory card they're installed on. Sounds simple enough. If you have too much media for one of Sony's spendy storage devices, you can have your PSN account linked to multiple memory cards.
One question I have is how often do you think you'll be swapping out memory...
131w ago - Hi, after the events this weekend regarding a domain issue I've had to release a new build to patch several glitches with premium memberships and some server side work to fix the advert not closing after clicking skip. In 3.90 these are minor changes, but we're required:
1) changed all server side links to pixolia.co.uk from pixolia.org. that's about it one small change to fix several issues...
Also I realised a few saying the advert got stuck, and in some / most cases people didn't click the skip button.
The advert shown at the startup will never close until you've clicked on the skip button unlocked after 5 seconds, it may take slightly longer on single core computers so be patient (old single core computers cause the multithreading to hang for a minute or two, nothing I can do about that.)
I've also reduced the number of advertisements on my website, I'm very disappointed by clicksor for allowing such issues to occur and have reported them to various sites about the risks they pose to consumer safety.
162w ago - A little over a week ago a guide was posted on how to play online using a JailBroken PS3 with XLink Kai, and today bumax reports that XBSlink is working with the PS3 also for multiplayer games via P2P connection.
To quote: XBSLink is client/server to enable local network multiplayer games over the Internet just like XLink Kai, the only difference is that it's a P2P connection!
How is XBSlink different to Xlink Kai/xbconnect?
In difference to other Systemlink proxies, XBSlink is purely P2P with no server infrastructure. No server connection or specialized game browser service is necessary.
You are not dependent on any other factors. All packets in and out are 100% between the client nodes itself. The program was developed to get the last bit of speed/ping time thats possible. And to know, that no other data than the game packets itself is send to the internet.
From developer I asked if this could work with PS3 and he said, YES.
