Download: Pongus PS3 Homebrew Game with Source Code
To quote: This is the first PS3 homebrew game to use no copyrighted code. The game was coded from the ground up, entirely with the PSL1GHT SDK
. Here is what CodeZombie had to say about his release:
Pongus is a simple pong clone, demonstrating the basic features of the PSL1GHT SDK.
Right now, it's in a playable state, with enemy AI, collision detection, Speed advancement and simple controls.
I am aware that there is already a much better pong clone available for the PS3, but that package contains leaked Sony code, and is illegal to distribute.
This package is the opposite, written completely with the Open PSL1GHT SDK. No Sony code was used to write this game, and thus, is able to be freely distributed, source and all."
