Braid May Hit PSN, Space Limitations Prevent WiiWare Release

296w ago - With all the talk about how great Jonathan Blow's time-bending puzzle platformer Braid is, we can imagine that PlayStation 3 owners are feeling a little jealous.

Good news, though. According to Blow himself, the title was released on XBLA through a timed exclusivity agreement with Microsoft and as such, a PSN release is indeed possible after the period of exclusivity ends.

Furthermore, on the question of if Braid will come to Nintendo's WiiWare download service, Blow stated that a WiiWare version is out of the question, citing a lack of internal storage as the reasoning behind why.

Warhawk Trophies Hit August 27; Update to Feature Offline Mode

100°
297w ago - When I read this on Kotaku one bit jumped out at me that I think needs some exploration. You see, the piece gives some details about the 1.5 patch for Warhawk. They mention something's that are obvious, like trophies and custom soundtracks and some fun things like, new paint and insignia schemes.

Here's what I like, the brief mention of offline tutorials. I want to know how robust this new offline mode is. Are talking a few quick challenges? How about the ability to play against bots? Remember Bots?

There was once a time when all multiplayer games let you play alone with bots. It was great for learning maps and how to use weapons. This way when you went online you didn't play like an idiot when you hit a new map for the first time.

These days games are too cool, or developers are too lazy to add bots to their games, so they are a thing of the past. I don't know what the new mode in Warhawk is, but at least I won't have to wait too long to find out. Update 1.5 is set to come out August 27 per SCEE, although the page detailing this on Sony Europe's official Web site has been mysteriously deleted.

The patch is said to bring forth trophy support with over...
 

Video: Windows Vista hits the PS3, as expected it's very slow

500°
297w ago - mopx0 has installed Windows Vista 32 bit on the PS3, the whole process takes a huge amount of time and the end result is that the emulation runs very slow as evidenced by the fact it takes nearly 25 minutes to boot to the start menu.

To quote: It's a 100% PS3 based emulation of Microsoft Windows Vista. Its super slow, but it works.

Tutorial: Install Qemu 0.9.1

- Install Vista on your Computer using Qemu and Bochs Bios Rev 1.171 by sshwarts
- Vlite helps speed the install up, Vista's install may take a day or so





- Bochs Bios Revision 1.171 can be found here (http://bochs.cvs.sourceforge.net/bochs/bochs/bios/BIOS-bochs-latest?view=log&pathrev=MAIN)
- You may also need to add this command "-cpu pentium3" for qemu to work right
- Copy the .IMG to your PS3's HDD
- Open Terminal where the Vista IMG is located
- Type qemu -hda vista.img -m 256 -L "Location to Rev 1.171, Drag n Drop" -cpu pentium3
- The -cpu pentium3 option makes it so it doesn't BSOD with error code 7F

It will take about 25 min to fully boot (network connection and audio show up).
