283w ago - We have had quite a few requests as to how the BD-Emulator on a PS3 TEST console works, and thought the best way to show how it works is through a video!
After formatting a USB HDD (in this case, a 500GB EIDE Drive hooked to the PS3 via an old USB CDROM enclosure) in the PS3, it is transferred to a PC. Once transferred, a properly decrypted, patched and remastered retail game is written to the drive. The drive is then plugged back in via USB to the PS3 TEST, while off.
The Drive is then turned on, followed by the PS3. Once the PS3 is on the BD-Emulator is set to USB. DEV is for a PS3 TOOL, which has an additional internal HDD for BD-Emulator purposes, and BD Drive is self explanatory. The PS3 then gets rebooted.
Upon reboot is where the video starts, it first shows the previous settings in the PS3, and then the game that was remastered, Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is started from BD-Emulator. The BD-Emulator is transparent to the PS3 system, it is accessed and used just like any normal Blu-ray disc is.
The game is then started to the title screen, then is quit and exited back to XMB. Since it works just like a Blu-ray Disc, the BD-Emu isn't much to look at, but it does work great!
290w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment is none too thrilled over the fact that online retailer King of Swords is selling an unofficial replica of the Beretta M92F gun featured in PlayStation 3 title Uncharted.
According to a company spokesperson, they will be taking "appropriate" measures against the Web site very soon:
The Drake's Gun is not licensed or in any way sanctioned by SCE and one we certainly do not condone.
We are investigating the source of this product and will proceed with the most appropriate action.
It's worth pointing out that this same retailer is also selling a number of unlicensed swords from the Final Fantasy series.
305w ago - Courtesy of fall: Play Unreal Tournament 3 from an over the shoulder view, like Gears of War or Mass Effect. This new camera view enhances the action and really brings you into the fight!
Enter the battle with an over the shoulder camera and see the Action from an all new perspective! Action Cam is designed to offer better visibility, depth, and feedback to the player than the normal first person view, and offers pixel-perfect accuracy.
Action Cam v1.0 is released onto our favorite console and ready for the masses to play around with! Thanks to StuntF50 for helping test the PS3 version, as I don't own one.
1. Unzip the file to the root directory of any memory card that is readable by your PlayStation 3. It is already in the proper directory structure but, just in case, the path and filename need to be: ps3savedatablus30086-modimportuserdata.jam

310w ago - Microsoft's Xbox Live service suffered some downtime during the holidays. People complained. Microsoft made-up, said they were sorry, and is now giving away a free Xbox Live Arcade game to all members of the service.
That wasn't good enough for three Texans, who today filed a class action lawsuit against the company. The group allege that Microsoft "failed to provide adequate access and service to Xbox Live and its subscribers."
The nine page PDF copy of the suit does not claim specific damages, but does note that the amount in controversy is over five million.
