92w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has interviewed Creative Director Ed Boon of NetherRealm Studios on DC Fighter today!

Below is the interview, to quote: During EVO 2012, I got a rare opportunity to chat with Ed Boon, co-creator of Mortal Kombat and creative director for Injustice: Gods Among Us.

Though NetherRealm Studios' latest title wasn't playable at the show, Boon walked me through his vision for the DC-themed fighter, his overall plans for NetherRealm Studios, and some key changes he's bringing to the fighting game formula.

PlayStation.Blog: It strikes me that Superman looks awfully aggressive in Injustice. His cape is torn, he looks upset. What's up with Supe?

Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios: We haven't released many details on the story... but I can say that it's very observant of you. Our Superman isn't quite the same Superman that you grew up with.

We definitely want to give a more contemporary, NetherRealms spin to the character, and he plays a big part in the story. People will definitely be surprised by this rendition of Superman. We'll be revealing more details with Comic-con, PAX, Gamescom, and so forth.

PSB: Superman, for me, has never...
 

PS Vita Dev Wololo Unveils VHBL Success with New PSP Game Exploit

92w ago - Today PlayStation Vita developer wololo has announced news of VHBL success using a new PSP game exploit courtesy of neur0n with details below.

To quote from his blog: Sometimes, it’s just that simple...

Neur0n has been kind enough to share with me the details of his latest user mode exploit, so that I could help porting VHBL to his game on the EU and US versions (yes, the game seems to be available on all stores, and don’t stop reading here, it gets better).

Sometimes porting VHBL to a new game can be a pain in the rear. Many times, as I discovered the hard way, we hit a wall and have to give up after dozens of hours of investigation.

On this exploit too, had I been alone working on it, I would have given up. It seemed impossible to free most of the ram (VHBL basically needs to cleanly remove the game from the ram, in order to load homebrews instead), and the exploit ended up with about 2MB of free ram, instead of the 24MB that we usually expect.

But hey, that’s where comes the joy of working with talented people like Neur0n: he figured out, within 24hours, how to free the additional 22MB. I am not sure really how he found out, and why it works, but it damn works.

So I can proudly...
