147w ago - Update: According to Examiner.com the Killzone 3 Single-Player PS3 demo has now been pulled from PSN and is only available to PlayStation Plus subscribers.
The Killzone 3 Single-Player PS3 demo is now available to all via PSN, versus only PlayStation Plus Subscribers, using a simple work-around.
To quote from Examiner.com (linked above): "The beauty of it all is that the demo in Hong Kong is the same demo and it's available in English.
By making a false Hong Kong account, you can easily download the demo one week ahead of time and bask in the loving warmth that is the Killzone 3 single-player demo, or you can continue to play the Killzone 3 multiplayer beta and wait the extra week.
As posted by a user on NeoGAF, here are some simple steps to create a Hong Kong account with ease:
How to make a Hong Kong PSN account:
First create a new user on your PlayStation 3 (completely over to the left of the XMB menu.)
149w ago - Today a new Killzone 3 PS3 MP video is available via YouTube courtesy of the EU PS Blog, and SCEA's Product Marketing Specialist David Bull has revealed details on the KZ3 Single Player PlayStation 3 demo which will hit PSN this February.
To quote: Today we are giving you a sneak preview of one of our new Killzone 3 Multiplayer levels: MP08 Kaznan Jungle. It is a tight, intricate map especially catered towards one of our new game modes, Guerrilla Warfare.
The Kaznan Jungle harbors the wreckage of a downed ISA Cruiser. Survivors of the failed evacuation of Helghan must fight for their lives against a Helghast enemy bent on their annihilation, but they are not the only predators in the area... The jungle, the plants and insects that call it home are friend to no-one.
You will also get to see the Infiltrator at work in this video. The infiltrator hides in plain sight, using deception to confuse the enemy while going about his tasks. His basic equipment consists of an M13 shotgun and a holo-emitter that allows him to disguise as a member of the opposing team.
152w ago - Today PlayStation 3 hacking group Fail0verflow has tweeted news of a Standalone Linux PS3 Slim 27C3 Fail0verflow demo that Marcan42 wanted to show off during this year's 27C3 but couldn't due to the video not working.
From the video's caption, to quote: "This is what the fail0verflow 27c3 demo *should* have looked like. As it turns out, the reason why we didn't have working video and had to fall back to an SSH demo was because this Slim is too new to run version 3.15 (what we tried to run), since it does not correctly support this particular revision of the RSX. So here's the same demo, except with version 3.41, which does work."
For those who missed it, pytey of Fail0verflow was also recently interviewed by the BBC.
The video can be seen below, and here are some related Fail0verflow tweets:

Below is a video of it in action, and to quote from PSGroove: "Heden, of Team DeLiGhT, has sent us a festive scene intro/homebrew.
The app displays a happy New Year's greeting, and displays some nifty animated graphics."
