PS3 Eboot.bin FULLY decrypted via Memory Dump!

50°
345w ago - We hinted on this in previous PS3 Dev postings, but now it deserves a post of its own. We have successfully obtained the decrypted ELF file from an encrypted SELF that we ran, then dumped using the PlayStation 3.

As you can see in the image below, there is an ELF file, totally decrypted from the retail game disc! This removes BOTH the disc layer of encryption on the EBOOT.BIN, as well as the file layer of encryption.

In other recent PS3 Dev news, we have managed to successfully downgrade a PlayStation 3 without utilizing a previous flash dump backup of the console. Normally to downgrade your PS3 you first need a copy of the original firmware (made with Infectus). However our method does not need any flash backup, as it uses the PS3's updates to downgrade for us.

Keep in mind it's still a work in progress, but expect additional details on this project as they become available. Look for more information coming this week!
 

American McGee Confirms Unreal Engine 3 'Twisted Tale' Project

50°
345w ago - Spicy Horse co-founder American McGee has confirmed that his Chinese-based studio has a second game in development in addition to the (pictured) episodic American McGee's Grimm.

Though relatively low-profile thus far, the designer has only revealed that the early in production game is a "[Unreal Engine 3] based, big publisher, multi-platform, twisted tale project".

As part of a post on his official weblog, McGee reveals that the Grimm project, being produced for online game subscription service GameTap, is at "the half-way point", commenting: "we're 12 episodes in, with another 12 to go."

He then goes on to reveal basic details on the next project, which is Unreal Engine 3-based and therefore presumably destined for next-gen consoles including Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 - though platforms are unconfirmed at this time.

McGee, who created American McGee's Alice while at Electronic Arts and whom Gamasutra recently talked to about his plans for Grimm ends the call for developers to work on this new franchise by noting that "...an official announcement will come when the time is right".

Can Someone Tell Touchstone Turok Came Out Three Days Ago?

50°
345w ago - I've received quite a few emails this weekend from people saying they had picked up copies of Turok at their local stores.

While it's not out of the ordinary for a game's street date to be broken by a single outlet, according to Best Buy, GameStop, GameCrazy and Wal-mart the game came out three days ago on Jan. 31.

Apparently no one told this to the game's publisher, Touchstone. The official Turok Web site has a countdown clock that still has a little over two days left on it.

The press materials and game Web sites like IGN and Gamespot also have it listed as a February 5th release.

Is this a matter of a mass mistake on the retailers' part or is Touchstone being sneaky and letting the cat out of the bag early on purpose?
 

Virtual Life: Sony Nears Launch of Own 3D World

100°
345w ago - Tired of Second Life - or want a better online 3D world experience? Sony may offer that alternative world later this spring with its "Home" destination for PlayStation 3.

"Home is a cross between private chat rooms, MySpace, YouTube and online gaming," explained Ron Festejo, creative director, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, in an interview. "If you've ever tried Second Life, you can immediately see how much richer this world is and how accessible it is."

The Sony Europe group has been spearheading the software behind Home, a free PlayStation 3 virtual community that will launch this spring as a download. The creators of this new 3D universe were on hand at the Imagina conference last week to give attendees a sneak peak at the brand new, modified hub running online with thousands of Beta testers inhabiting the world.

Microsoft has accrued 10 million online subscribers for its Xbox Live service, which comes free as a basic service with every Xbox 360 but requires a $50 annual subscription to play online games. Sony, however, is going in a different direction with PS3. Anyone who has used Xbox Live knows that the service is a great way to jump into an online game, but the 2D interface is not built for stickiness in the generic lobbies.

In contrast, Sony has constructed...
