327w ago - We at PS3News.com asked Santa for a PS3 Test, and he delivered, albeit a bit late.

It is a special unit, it runs unsigned code, and can do loads of debugging.

Just today we have learned alot, including the Blu-Ray drives transparent encryption, and even dumped a majority of the flash and HDD from inside the unit (Unencrypted!)

More to come!

Warhawk: Take Three

50°
332w ago - Nearly a month ago CJPC posted a Warhawk: Take Two PS3 Dev article.. since then a lot has happened, but due to finals and the holidays most of the resident Devs are too busy to update the news with their progress.

Recently ggparallel has shared the following for those interested- to quote:

Warhawk, is a game for PS3 GAMEOS. The retail version on Blue-ray allows you to send pkg via fake Web server via patches.

Howto under MAC OS:

Create a script that binds the various IPs of Sony Web server for example in MACOSX:

warhawk-start-interface.sh
#!/bin/bash
# where en0 is the interface you make the Web server listen
int="en0"
echo echo starting en0 aliases for PS3 networks
echo echo adding Warhawk http server port 80
/sbin/ifconfig $int inet 87.248.216.24 netmask 255.255.255.255
alias /sbin/ifconfig $int inet 87.248.217.171 netmask 255.255.255.255 alias

warhawk-stop-interface.sh
#!/bin/bash
# where en0 is the interface you make the Web server listen
int="en0"
echo echo removing en0 aliases for PS3 networks
echo echo removing Warhawk http server port 80
/sbin/ifconfig...
 

Insider says PS3 Blacksite plagued with development trouble

50°
338w ago - IGN recently revealed that players the PS3 version of Blacksite will not have all the online features of the 360 version. On the 360 players will be able to play ranked and unranked matches, and have voice support features. However an insider claims that problems run much deeper than this.

He said "The PS3 version is experiencing issues and missed deadlines," and that it is likely the demo and full game will be delayed. "Midway isn't happy at all about the progress, and it's a story I've heard over and over this year across the industry when it comes to the PS3 and cross-platform titles," the insider states.

To quote: The Unreal Engine powers Blacksite, which presents the possibility that the engine itself is leading to development problems. Midway's other big PS3 releases of Stranglehold and Unreal Tournament 3 have also seen long delays.

Sadly, the problems with Blacksite: Area 51 only further the growing list of problematic multiplatform releases on the PS3, and could reinforce the qualms about working with the Unreal Engine among multiplatform developers.
