106w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez is here with the new PS3 and PSN releases for the coming week today, as follows:
The Sly Collection arrives this week on PSN, where we give you the sweet option of downloading the amazing trilogy together, or each Sly game individually, all in stereoscopic 3D. Before the DragonZord and White TigerZord dominated afternoon television in the 90′s, there was Voltron in the 80′s.
This Mighty Morphing Power Rangers fan is envious of the Voltron game hitting PSN this week. Even more classics return to glory on PSone and PS2, and Modern Warfare 2 and De Blob 2 evolve into a full digital downloads.
Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus - Only one thing can make a thieving raccoon better at his job, and that's the long-lost Thievious Racoonus, a collected work of thieving knowledge.
Split into ten pieces, the writings are spread across the world, and it's up to one young raccoon, Sly Cooper, to track them all down. Angered security guards, searchlights, and lasers are just a few of the obstacles Sly will have to confront, but luckily he's got binoculars, swords, daggers, and all sorts of other fun stuff.
Sly 2: Band of Thieves - The sequel to Sly Cooper...
106w ago - Previously we reported on a leaked document revealing PS3-Vita connectivity followed by some PS Vita PS3 Remote Play demo videos from TGS 2011, and today Eurogamer (linked above) reports that a PS3 Firmware update will enable PlayStation Vita Remote Play on all games.
To quote: "A future PlayStation 3 Firmware update will enable Vita Remote Play on all games, Eurogamer has learnt. However, this will be only at the PlayStation Portable 480x272 resolution, which will be upscaled to fill the screen.
For future games, developers will be able to include Vita specific 480p modes, Eurogamer understands. Vita's OLED display is actually capable of displaying games at 960x544 pixel resolution.
Vita Remote Play is how Sony's new handheld interacts with the PS3.
In a Tokyo Game Show demonstration Sony's Shuhei Yoshida played a brief section of Killzone 3 streamed into the device from a PlayStation 3 unit, noting how a few of the Dual Shock buttons missing on the Vita are mapped to the touchscreen.
To quote: I've started work on a platformer for PS3. The gameplay is (currently) 2D but it has 3D graphics making it the first 3D thing I've made for PS3 since switching from the official SDK to PSL1GHT.
The art assets are all placeholder. This will NOT be a Mario clone by the time I'm done with it.
The character model used for the player was made by Bubles Studio.
107w ago - Following up on the True Blue PS3 JB2 v2.2 Payload, today PlayStation 3 developers on the Wiki (linked above) have started a preliminary Q&A work-in-progress for hacking the True Blue (TB) PS3 JailBreak 2 (JB2) USB dongle.
Q: Is this possible on other dongles from the FW3.41 days like Blackcat and Teensy?
A: Dongles are bad and obsolete, mkay (once you have the key/algo, you don't need any dongle at all)
Q: Are they (TB team) just stealing the dev eboots?
A: First we thought that too but today the first TB game was released Dirt 3 and it's working and it isn't a dev eboot so it maybe is really worth...
