Project: PS3SDK Collaborative Development Effort

100°
273w ago - Over the weekend, the folks at PS2Dev.org (linked above) have began a collaborative development effort in hopes of finally getting a freeware (non-Sony) legal PS3SDK rolling similar to the popular [Register or Login to view links] project.

To quote mc: Well, we've all heard the rumors about ongoing PS3SDK development efforts, but so far nobody has shown any code.

I think the main problem with getting a PS3SDK out the door is that it's a rather large project for one or two persons to undertake, so eventually anyone who tries on his own will get stuck and/or fed up.

So what I'd like to do is invite to a collaborative effort, and the correct way to do this is of course to present all the code I have so far, and allow people to start expanding it.

What I have currently is a small multithreading kernel (supports use of both HW threads), integration with newlib, and some simple GPU support.

There are plenty of work packages for interested parties to get down with, including (but not limited to)

• Interrupt handling
• A more sophisticated MMU driver
• Networking
• USB (the driver in mcload can't be used as it contains GPL code)
• Storage drivers and filesystems
• SPE support...
 

Sony Strikes Taiwanese Development Deal for PS3 and PSP Titles

200°
273w ago - Sony has struck a deal with Asian game developers to bolster the platform holder's array of PSP and PS3 titles.

Sony Computer Entertainment Asia signed the deal with six developers, such as Taiwanese groups XPEC Entertainment and Yeck Entertainment.

SCE Asia has also opened up its proprietary PlayStation platform to Taiwanese group SOGA Interactive - the team currently developing Stephen Chow's-Kung Fu Hustle, scheduled to be released this winter.

To quote: as the [Register or Login to view links] reports the manufacturer has signed a new deal with Taiwanese developers in an effort to help boost the PS3's and PSP's presence in the region. It's been down due to consumers flocking to the cheaper Wii and, consequently, causing the development manpower to follow suit.

Through this new deal with Sony Computer Entertainment Asia, six different independent developers will work on PlayStation products. The Taipei Times implies that digital content on the PS3 and PSP Go is likely to result.

Valve is Working to Build a Talented PS3 Development Team

300°
274w ago - Valve isn't quite as against the idea of developing games for the PS3 as previously thought.

Speaking to Valve's Doug Lombardi at the Left 4 Dead 2 event in London today, JoyStiq (linked above) discovered that the company is still "up on the idea" of developing for the PS3 - it's just waiting until it has hired some decent PS3 coders.

To quote: "If you look at The Orange Box - PC: 96 on Metacritic, 360: 96 on Metacritic, PS3 like... 84 or something. That's not even close to where we are right now with the 360 and PC and the reason is people."

Lombardi went on to say that "we have to get people under our roof who are dedicated, talented PS3 guys and then all bets are off. We can take the same sort of strides and get the quality out of the box and offer the same support post-launch on that platform, as well." Sounds like Valve-developed PS3 games are more a case of "when" than "if," nowadays.

When asked whether Valve is actively seeking to hire PS3 developers, he noted that "Valve is always looking to hire people. So yeah, definitely."
 

Project: PC / PS3 Messenger in Development

550°
276w ago - Update: Just after we finished the sign-in adress checker which you see in the post below, now we finished another part of the whole. The user info reader is finished and ready to be implemented. With it we can define user's PSN nickname, language, avatar and the "about me"-section.

Many user would like to communicate with their friends on PS3. As there's no default application for it we thought of just writing our own if it is possible. So we done a lot of research already, but still work in progress.

The base to work on is definitive there and we will try to successfull finish this nice project. What I can tell you so far, is that the PSN messaging is based on the XMPP protocol, used by several IM-programs like Jabber.

We also just finished an application to filter the real nickname you will need to login into the PSN later. You will just need to enter your normal PSN account name and the program spits out your messanger nickname. With this nickname, you can then login into the messenger environment to be able to send pics and messages to your PS3 friends.

We hope it's possible to have all running soon and be able to give you a usefull addon for the PC, so you don't need to feel "alone", just you'r not on your PS3 and can type with your friends ;-)
