Halo Now Playable on PS3: Via UT3

50°
340w ago - In an odd turn of events for non-PS3 games making their way to the console, the Halo map "Wizard" is now playable in Unreal Tournament 3. Should this awaken Microsoft lawyers? We hope not.

The beauty of Unreal Tournament 3 is that the PC community can create maps for PS3 owners to play. It's such a revolutionary setup for consoles, that you're really getting a lot of bang for your buck with this insane multiplayer experience.

Now a Halo map has been created from scratch for the game:

This is a remake of the Halo map named Wizard. This was a great close quarters map and I felt it would be right at home with Unreal Tournament 3.

This also has full bot pathing so you can play singleplayer without having to find a server with someone hosting this map.

Enjoy the screenshots below, but most importantly enjoy this new map, which can be found here. More screenshots can be seen at the link at the top of this story!
 

US porn studio and HD-DVD camp in divorce row

50°
340w ago - It's one blow after another for the Toshiba-lead HD-DVD consortium. This time round, it's California-based Digital Playground Inc. turning its back against the red camp.

A recent statement released by the pornographic movie studio indicated a possible Blu-ray switch by end 2008. This was revealed in an interview between the company founder and a German website Heise online during the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo 2008.

Among the reasons cited are the Warner coup and higher Digital Playground Blu-ray title sales volume against their equivalent HD-DVD offerings. The latter was said to be attributed to PlayStation3 gaming console's success, though it's still facing resistance from Sony on distributing pornography on Blu-ray, understandably with Walt Disney Pictures onboard. It has since worked around this issue by collaborating with independent Blu-ray disc manufacturers.
 

Bluetooth PSP/PS2 Headset Mod

50°
340w ago - I was bored and decided to come up with a little mod to give me something to do. So here it is: A universal Bluetooth headset mod for the PSP and PS2/ PS2 games on PS3.

With this mod I'm able to voice chat wirelessly on PSP games like the SOCOM FTB franchise using my Bluetooth headset. In addition to working with the PSP I can also use the same Bluetooth headset to voice chat wirelessly on any PS2.

In case you didn't know if you try to play say SOCOM: Combined Assault (a PS2 game) on the PS3 without this mod you cannot use a Bluetooth headset because the PS2 game is not coded to take advantage of the PS3's Bluetooth functionality, but with this now you can!

Note: I'm in the process of writing up step by step guide to build your own which I intend to release on the instructables site.

Thanks for looking,

New DMC4 Screens Reveal New Boss

50°
340w ago - Famitsu has posted some new screens for the upcoming Devil May Cry 4 that reveal a new boss character. We're not sure what his name is, but he's really, really large and looks to be made of some kind of stone.

Some of the screenshots seem extremely reminiscent of the Colossus of Rhodes battle in God of War 2. However, whether the actual gameplay of the battle is the same remains to be seen.

I have to say I'm really digging Dante's suitcase cum automatic weapon. I really need to get one of those, it would come in quite handy for clearing the way at crowded conventions.

Resistance: Fall of Disc Based Encryption

350°
340w ago - We have been revisiting the aspects of the Blu-Ray disc encryption today. As we know every executable is encrypted, and those executables that are placed on game discs are encrypted once more.

This second layer of encryption can be quite the bother, as it hinders our efforts to explore the console. So we have created a tool that runs on Dev machines that automatically dumps the main encrypted file (EBOOT.BIN) to a PC, or Memory Card.

The PS3News.com EBOOT.BIN dumper may be publically released in coming days, it is ready to go and is installable as a PKG, however it will only work on a Debug/Tool console!

This file is void of the Disc Based layer encryption, it is just a SELF. The SELF is encrypted as well, however we are much more familiar with the SELF file format, than with the randomness of an EBOOT.BIN.

Below is a picture of the utility, as well as screenshots of the following files, in their SELF form. The files were taken from Resistance: Fall Of Man:

EBOOT.BIN 9.15 MB (9,602,456 bytes) / game.self 8.22 MB (8,625,856 bytes)
