P3DXLoad Video available!

50°
341w ago - This video is not related to anything the PS3 Devs are doing here, but until their next news update (hopefully tonight!) those interested can check out this video mailed to us from Erik.

Although it looks like some super-cool PS3 Loader in the video, it's likely just an edited save file only which is why we uploaded it under the 'entertainment' YouTube category.

Enjoy guys, at least there is some humor between the more serious Dev reports eh?




 

PS3: Patches Ahoy!

500°
341w ago - Another brief update based on the yesterday's findings: the PS3 Flash is quite accessible as the majority of it is mounted inside the PS3 as a filesystem (think PSP), and is able to be read/written.

A picture is below for a peek at a partial filelist. As you can see there are quite a few sprx's. These are encrypted of course, however they function quite the same as their PSP counterparts. For the majority of the PS3 OS's functions, there is a sprx that is tasked to do the job.

For the big chunk of interesting news: Every single scene release ever released for PS3 will not work without being patched.

Why? It is because backup PS3 images lack some data that we will call a key. On an original, when the disc is inserted, the PS3 reads the key, and it is used to decrypt any encrypted files on disc (the DISC layer of encryption). On a backup, the PS3 can not read this key so it will not be able to decrypt the file. Of course if a hardware mod surfaces this could change.

Making a patch is simple though, use an original disc, copy the file back off through the PS3 OS, and rebuild (we are currently using a modified BRDGen for our tinkering). This is being done via debug machine as we can both make and run our own code on it, but should retail consoles ever be able to run backups it may...

LittleBigPlanet on Sony PlayStation 3: breaking point

50°
341w ago - LittleBigPlanet is one of the biggest and most talked about games of 2008 among all consoles, the Sony Playstation 3 game may be the breaking point for the PS3 vs Xbox 360 debate.

For anyone that does not know much about LittleBigPlanet we have three videos below which give you a massive insight into the game, we have a community trailer, CES 2008: Demonstration and a Character Creation video below.

Many game sites are liking what they see when they review LittleBigPlanet, AMN Games said "Sony has accomplished the inconceivable: they have made their console appear attractive to me" and IGN said "While Sony has published some great games for their system like Uncharted and Ratchet and Clank, neither of those games really seem to have the staying power that LBP is poised to offer."

LittleBigPlanet will not only be a game, but also a massive community and a way gamers can share their creations with friends, family and the world.

Although the Xbox 360 had a big start, it now looks like the Playstation 3 is turning heads its way.

More pics can be seen at the link at the top of this story!
 

Free Radical comments on Haze delay for PS3

50°
341w ago - Soooo, Haze is delayed. But you already know that, don't you. Well, the simple fact of the matter is, any delay on a game is a good thing - it's more time to optimize and polish and tweak and generally improve the whole damn thing to the Nth degree.

Now, I know that some of you patient folks out there will be bitterly disappointed. Some of you may even want to come to my house and smash a colostomy bag over my head, and I think most people would understand that sentiment, but believe when I say that the delay is the best possible thing for the game.

Hell, the reason why you guys are so pumped about it is because you have high expectations, and we need just a little more time to make sure that we meet them. So in conclusion, rest easy - we're still slugging away on this badboy.

In other news, this week has seen several drafts and redrafts of the TimeSplitters 4 story outline being pulled around to see what sticks. As of today we might - MIGHT - have settled on something. Time will tell.

For the record, this blog is dedicated to the guys on the forums that noticed that I hadn't written one for a while. I didn't think anyone was reading this little thing.
