100w ago - Over the weekend PlayStation Vita developer Virtuous Flame has made available OpenCMA, an open-source homebrew application that prevents the PS Vita Content Manager from connecting to the Internet to bypass online and the latest OFW checks.
169w ago - Update: Several users who updated to PS3 Firmware 3.42 have now confirmed (along with Sony directly) that Sony has indeed added 'additional security features' and patched the PS3 exploit used for PS JailBreak, PSGroove and PSFreedom as expected so it is advised you do NOT update if you plan to use them.
For those who just signed in to PlayStation Network, PS3 Firmware update 3.42 is now available to download.
193w ago - Empty Clip Studios' Managing Partner Matt Shores has shared a trailer video and announced that beginning today Groovin' Blocks is available on PlayStation Network.
To quote: This is Matt from Empty Clip Studios. We're a small game developer that aims to put out games that you'll want to play over and over.
We're stoked to spread the word about our first PlayStation Network title, Groovin' Blocks. Groovin' Blocks is a genre-bending music-based puzzle game.
Many times people give it a quick look and say "Wait, isn't this just a match-3 game?" HELL no! If you love graphics-based block puzzles and games set to rocking beats, then Groovin' Blocks is your gaming dream come true.
In Groovin' Blocks, you play directly with the beat of the music. See those bright moving columns on the side? You will notice that as the song plays, they come towards the board where all of your blocks are falling.
Once they hit the side, they will "flash" and disappear. That flashing is where you want to hit down on the SIXAXIS controller and settle your blocks. Sounds easy, doesn't it? Well, now you add on that match-3 component and you have yourself something...
218w ago - It appears Nintendo has released another Wii System Menu update today to version 4.2.
Like previous updates, this latest revision will both delete and block Wii homebrew... and in some cases destroy consoles, so be aware of this before updating your console.
It's also a mandatory update in order to access the Wii Shop Channel.
To quote: "I have NO idea why Nintendo loves to send me those update messages at midnight... alas, they keep doing it. Anyway, this time it was to let us know that the Wii has a System Update waiting: Firmware 4.2.
Now, the weird thing is, Nintendo hasn't even announced this yet! That's right, it just hits your system and no official release is made.
As such, there is not much information on what exactly this 4.2 update does exactly... Obviously, it attempts to override any form of hacking, homebrewing, or illegal software loaders (and according to reports, it does so fairly well, deleting the ever-famous Homebrew Channel and all custom IOS installed in tampered Wiis)."
