Do you have a PlayStation Move? You may be pleased to know that someone...
To quote: The PS3 uDraw tablet/accessory comes with a USB dongle which shows up as a standard HID device when plugged into a PC, so I threw together some documentation and a "driver"/application to allow using it on a Windows PC as a standard mouse.
Documentation (Where ambiguous, assume little endian.)
There are 0x08 bytes that can be sent on the device's OUT interrupt pipe -- I don't know what these are. There are 0x1B bytes constantly received on the device's IN interrupt pipe, described below:
0x00 Button status information:
0 Set means square is being held down.
1 Set means cross is being held down.
2 Set means cricle is being held down.
3 Set means triangle is being held down.
4 No idea, but it set itself while playing around. More playing around reset it.
5 Unknown / nothing.
6 Unknown / nothing.
94w ago - BioWare Community and Social Media Manager Jessica Merizan has officially announced that the Mass Effect 3 demo is coming today to PSN!
To quote: Mass Effect 3's new demo is launching later today on the PlayStation Network.
Voted "Most Anticipated Game of 2012" at the Spike Video Game Awards, Mass Effect 3 plunges you into the boots of Commander Shepard, a decorated marine and war hero, as players lead the charge in an all-out galactic war against a nearly unstoppable foe.
Today marks the arrival of our single-player demo for the PS3, giving you a taste of what to expect when Commander Shepard takes Earth back on March 6th. When you download and play the demo, you'll see that how you fight the war is entirely up to you.
Choose your appearance and pick from a variety of specialized combat classes, each with unique and devastating abilities. As you progress in this war, you'll choose which abilities to specialize in, which weapons to bring into battle, and which characters will join you in combat.
There's more to this demo, though - starting on February 17th, PS3 owners will be able to play multiplayer for the first time in the Mass Effect universe! As a special bonus, Battlefield 3 owners who have redeemed an online pass on the PlayStation Network will get early...
96w ago - Today Co-Op Producer Andreas Gschwari has introduced the PS3 demo of Syndicate, which arrives on PlayStation Network today!
To quote: Syndicate, as you probably know by now, is an FPS set in the classic universe first established by Bullfrog in 1993.
We have taken all the great story elements from the original game - the setting, the mood, the agents and above all the chips - and transferred into a much faster-paced and visceral game. Syndicate is not just your average FPS, though.
We did this by creating a gameplay mechanic called "Breaching," which effectively simulates an agent using his embedded military-grade DART 6 chip to interact with other chips in the world - whether they are located inside objects or human beings.
But it's not all about the chips. No FPS can do without providing the player with an arsenal of bad-ass weapons, and we had access to some excellent examples to work with from the original games, fortified with some ideas of our own.
You will find the usual suspects like sniper rifles, assault rifles and pistols, although you shouldn't expect them to be anything like you are used to from contemporary shooters. Some of the upgrades you are able to get will transform these seemingly standard weapons...
