204w ago - Just before the weekend dr_frankenfusion of PS3T-Fusion.com (linked above) shared both a video and GameSave file for a FUEL PS3 Trophies hack which allows you to obtain all but four PlayStation 3 Trophies to save countless hours driving around a deserted map.
To quote: If you're like me and don't want to spend 80 hours at a crap game but don't want that game to go to waste then how does a quick and easy platinum sound... You will get all but four trophies for just loading up the game.
For this to work you need to follow these steps exactly, don't rush ahead:
1- Plug your usb memory stick into ps3 first with no current ps3 saves on the memory stick.
2- Go to saved data utility on a psn account with a previous saved file of the game your getting a save for.
3- Copy your current save to the memory stick then delete the save of the ps3 only after saving it to the memory stick and unplug it from the ps3 and put it into pc/laptop.
4- Ok drag and drop your folder file called ps3 from your memory stick onto your pc so you have a backup of your original save.
5- Ok now download the rar file and save it to your desktop. Now go...
205w ago - Below is a video from MaemoItalia demonstrating how to control the PS3 with the Nokia N900 via BlueMaemo.
BlueMaemo is a remote controller program for the Maemo-powered devices. With BlueMaemo you can turn your Maemo-powered device in a mixed Bluetooth keyboard-and-mouse device through the HID Bluetooth profile.
When you have a PlayStation 3 or PC running Windows, Linux or Mac OS X the PS3 / PC is Bluetooth-ready and supports the HID Bluetooth profile. You have a Nokia Nseries phone with BlueMaemo loaded and you're now in control.
Windows XP and Media Center Edition:
• Turn bluetooth on.
• Start BlueMaemo on the device.
• Go to the bluetooth preferences and choose 'Add a new device'.
• Choose the device and choose a blank password (you can also choose a numeric password the PassAgentKey will appear on the device asking for the password).
Recently astrogirl wrote a BlueMaemo pairing guide for PS3 users, to quote:
The steps I do to pair are: On the PS3 go to the menu Settings > Accessory Settings > Manage Bluetooth Devices.
206w ago - Today MysticHades has posted a video on YouTube of a MotorStorm PS3 hack that has once again surfaced (it originally hit Elotrolado.net and PS3News.com this past November), demonstrating an exploit used to run PS3 backups.
206w ago - Below is a video from TheIndianKhan on YouTube and some info on Zpack for PS3, which claims (ZPack FAQ) to be the first PlayStation 3 backup system.
To quote: I found this in my holiday in Korea, there are PS3 cafes which run their games from external harddisk without using the original disks. I am one of the first who tested this Zpack System.
Zpack is the first working Backup System for PlayStation 3. It was especially designed for PlayStation Cafes across the world to avoid damaging your original game disk and beware them to be stolen by customers. You will not need the original disk to play on your PS3 anymore just start any game you have directly from your external hard disk.
Zpack comes to you with a USB Dongle and a DISK with the Zpack Software, which you only need the first time for installation. The USB dongle have to be connected to your PS3 all the time. When you run a PlayStation Cafe with 8 PlayStation Terminals, you will need 8 Zpacks for each PS3 Terminal to run the games from the external drives. Please pay Attention for our Zpack bundles.
206w ago - A modder named Techknott has shared a video of a Wireless PS3 WVI Mod he made that allows for playing Modern Warfare 2 on the go!
The handheld sends control signals to a PS3 which transmits video signals back to the device, which will soon be available for purchase apparenrly.
To quote: PS3 version of the WVI. Just got it finished(ish) today. Its playable, however, I have blown a TA7176AP chip on the sound reciever board, so while there is sound, its really crap quality until I get it changed - no biggie.
This will be for sale once I get the sound problem sorted out.
