2d ago - Vogster Entertainment LLC Project Lead Artem Kuryavchenko confirmed today that Carnivores HD: Dinosaur Hunter stomps onto PS3 next week.
To quote: Carnivores HD: Dinosaur Hunter was recently released in North America, and we have been more than happy to see the gamers' response. Since then we have gathered tons of user feedback and made a lot of improvements to gameplay, tweaking and polishing the game balance. And now we're excited to have the game out in Europe.
Carnivores HD is a realistic hunting simulator which brings you to beautiful islands and lets you hunt for the most dangerous creatures that have ever existed. You'll get a chance to track down Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Ankylosaurus, Parasaurolophus, Ceratosaurus and a T-Rex! There are also flying Pteranodons, small and peaceful Gallimimuses and cute tiny Pelecanimimuses roaming around.
Each location is a different island about four square kilometers in size, and features a unique environment. There are deserts, jungles and deep forests. Each level comes in three variations: daytime, evening, and misty.
Being a hunting simulator, the game renders wildlife realistically. Animals make use of natural senses - sight, hearing, smell - that are unique to each creature. Dinosaurs behave differently depending on the environment,...
3d ago - Following up on the recent PlayStation 4 Reballing developments, today Italian PlayStation 4 developer -Criscros- (aka criscros1989) reports he has dumped the Macronix MX25L25635FMI-10G and Macronix MX25L1006E PS4 NOR flash memory ICs (OFW 1.05) using SPIway and a Teensy++ with a ZIF socket.
HERE are some pictures, and to quote, roughly translated: I can communicate with much happiness that I have just dump the NOR flash memory MX25L25635FMI-10G Macronix, Macronix MX25L1006E and the new home console Sony PS4.
Everything was done by unsoldering the 2 memories and read with SPIway the Teensy++ via ZIF for power that I used the Teensy++ using the same controller without problems.
2w ago - Following up on Sony's Ultimate PS4 FAQ which states PS4 does not feature backward compatibility, today we have some pictures and a video of what exactly happens when inserting a PS3 game disc in the PlayStation 4 console.
To quote: With the arrival of the next generation of gaming hardware in the PS4 and XBox One, it's also clear that plenty of people will be holding onto their older consoles, and just as obvious that developers will continue to make games for these legacy systems for a long while yet.
But what if you're looking to blend the past and future by jamming a game from the last gen into one of your new consoles? We've got the answers.
As a test, we took a PS3 game - Mirror's Edge, obviously. Here it is. And oh so delicately, so as not to frighten anyway, inserted it into our shiny new PS4.
The menu pop-up was less than reassuring. And the result even less so.
This doesn't come as any surprise, backwards compatibility was never supposed to be a part of the PS4 ecosystem and at least in this case the console identifies the fact that it's a PS3 disc, unlike the XBox One which...
3w ago - Below is a video derived from THIS PDF file (via PC Watch) with details from ChipWorks on the rumored PS4 AMD Jaguar CPU 1.8Ghz and two disabled GPU compute units alongside the PlayStation 4 motherboard components explained.
To quote: PlayStation 4 - AMD Jaguar CPU 1.8GHZ - PS4 Rumor and Two Disabled Compute Units
The PlayStation 4's AMD Jaguar CPU clock speed has yet to be officially confirmed by Sony, but there is recent evidence and rumors to suggest that the CPU is running at 1.8GHZ. Previously, based on comments from various developers and speculation we'd guessed the PS4′s CPU was running at 1.6GHZ. Remember that the AMD Jaguar is designed to run up to 2GHZ, so the 1.8GHZ is right in the Jaguar's range.
Microsoft had up clocked the Xbox One's CPU to 1.75GHZ, and so we assumed the X1 had the CPU advantage - but if these recent rumors prove to be correct, the PS4 will have the X1 beat. Lower clock frequencies require less power and output less heat, and due to the APU of the PS4 already being fairly large, we weren't sure if Sony...
4w ago - Following up on the previous update and recent PS4 ISO game dumps, today Microsoft hacker C4Eva announced he dumped the first XBox One game Call of Duty: Ghosts with details below.
To quote, roughly translated: C4eva, the person behind the XBox 360 hacking with iXtreme firmware, has announced that it has managed to dump the first Xbox game One from a Blu-ray disc, the Call of Duty: Ghosts.
No more information given, for example, if it has done with a Blu-ray ordinary or had to modify its firmware, as needed at the time with the XBox 360 DVD.
Obviously this does not mean that the burden of backups on the new console from Microsoft is close or anything like that. But one thing can not live without the other, they pararelos paths, and always arrives before the dumpeo of the games that the possibility of loading.
In fact, as the day came to be uploaded (within three months or within 3 years) this dump is not worth and you have to patch it, for example. But as a curiosity, there it is. He states:
