Project PS3 Blu-ray WIP Seeks to Restore Drives Post-Downgrade

550°
186w ago - Previously we reported that PS3 downgrading hinders Blu-ray movie playback along with some work-arounds while markjtarr began a Poll on working/non-working drives post-downgrade, and today Project Blu-ray seeks to restore functionality using feedback from PlayStation 3 downgraders.

To quote from PSGroove (linked above): "They are asking anyone with a PS3 to run an app they have developed, which will dump certain files related to Blu-Ray playback.

It does not matter if the Blu-ray problem is affecting your console or not, your files are still needed for analysis. Once analyzed, this should lead to a permanent Blu-ray playback fix!"

From the included ReadMe file: One of the most exciting recent developments is the ability to downgrade PS3s to previous firmwares. Unfortunately this has proven to have an unexpected side-effect for certain older ("phat") PS3s:

After downgrading, systems with 256MB of flash RAM (NAND) lose the...

Marvel Announces X-Men Arcade is Coming Tomorrow to PSN

200°
187w ago - Today Marvel Studios Licensed Games Manager Chris Baker has announced that X-Men Arcade is coming Tomorrow to PSN.

To quote: Joining Marvel Pinball on the PlayStation Network this Tuesday, [Register or Login to view links] holds a special place in my Marvel-loving heart and even helped shape my knowledge of the [Register or Login to view links] at a fairly young age.

OK, so maybe it was off in a few ways - and that's what I'm counting down here today.

X-Men Arcade holds up as one of the greatest beat-'em-up games of its era, and if you were a fan of it when it came out, I think you'll agree that the 18-year wait for a console version was definitely worth it... but not only for gameplay fun and nostalgia.

A big part of the game's charm playing it now is something we didn't really think twice about back in 1992 - powers that went beyond characters' capabilities, laughable in-game dialogue, and other oddities, for example.





In other words, the kinds of things that the person with my job at Marvel would strike down in a game design document...
 

Dead Nation Metagame PlayStation 3 - Your Nation Needs You!

200°
187w ago - XDev Studio Europe Associate Producer Robert Karp has sent out a call for help today for Dead Nation Metagame PlayStation 3 fans.

To quote: Due to issues beyond our control, a nasty, disgusting and horrific zombie outbreak has occurred and we need you to help prove your nation is the best in world at fighting the zombie infection.

Dead Nation has a unique online component which we call the metagame. It means that every time you kill a zombie, we know about it and so does the game. The metagame uses that information to track many things. So, every single zombie kill counts!

Every single dirt-ridden, disgusting sack of flesh you kill will count towards clearing the virus in your country. The more zombies you and your countrymen kill, the quicker the virus will be cleared.

Below is a snapshot of part of the Metagame:

• Currently selected country.
• Player's statistics.
• Statistics about the currently selected country.
• Ticker texts which displays various information about the global status, player's country status, player's friends and about the player.
• Access to more in-depth detailed statistics.

The metagame features an interactive map of the world, which can be used to access all the information. For...
 

B0xloader SELF Loader 1.0 for PS3 JailBreak is Released

500°
187w ago - According to a recent SCEI [Register or Login to view links], Sony plans to increase the PS3's power with an external processor.

To quote from PlayStationLifeStyle.net (linked above): "A Sony patent has hinted that they will release external processors to make the console even more powerful – without the need for a PS4.

The benefits of an upgrade to the PS3 are obvious – allowing for a more powerful machine, without having to pay so much for a new console. However, the “PS3 External Processor” has its drawbacks: it wouldn’t give consumers the same experience as a full new console, and would run the risk of both fragmenting and confusing the market.

The patent expressly states that several external processors may be used:

In accordance with an alternative embodiment, two processor elements may be cascaded by each employing its respective BIC in a coherent symmetric multiprocessor (SMP) interface (or BIF) configuration. The coherent SMP interface (BIF) of each processing element is coupled to one another to set up a coherent interface there between."
