The countdown to GDC and the games we want to see - PS3!

359w ago - So, this years Game Developers Conference is just around the corner beginning February 18th, and ending Feb 22nd, and these are the games we are hoping, no begging, to see!

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
Dev: Kojima Pro | Publisher: Konami | Release: Q2 2008 | Platform: Playstation 3

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots has been playable at pretty much every major gaming related event since it's gameplay debut at the Playstation Premier, so hopefully at GDC not only will we get a demo, a new demo or hopefully another trailer as Ryan has been promising, but perhaps we might get the solid release date as Konami said they hope to have one "Near the end of Feb". Perhaps they will also shed some light on the 4 yet-to-be-announced characters.

Final Fantasy XIII
Dev: Square-Enix | Publisher: Square-Enix | Release: TBA | Platform: Playstation 3

Ever since its debut in E3 2006, Final Fantasy XII has been looking more and more interesting, expanding what can be done on a home console and will no doubt revolutionize the RPG genre with it's new, high speed battle system. However, Square seems very tight-lipped on the project, and apart from various screenshots and scans, they have only been releasing trailers for FFXIII once every year. It has so far been...

Jaffe: PS3 Twisted Metal Next Project

359w ago - When David Jaffe released Twisted Metal Head On: Extra Twisted Edition he promised that there was a hidden message in the game that would reveal the next project for Jaffe's Eat Sleep Play development studio.

Well it may have been "hidden really, really, really well" but you know how hardcore fans can be. A group over at Gamefaq managed to decipher the message in record time, discovering that it reads: METAL IS COMING ON PSTHREE.

I contacted Jaffe, who's hanging at DICE this week, to see if the gamers were on the money and he confirmed they were, adding his chagrin at how fast the code was discovered and cracked. Unfortunately, he hit me with a big fat no comment when I asked him if the upcoming PS3 version of Metal was going to be hitting the console via a disc or as a downloadable.

"As for how it gets distributed, no comment "

A little something from the inside

359w ago - Update: Fully lighted, swap of retail PS3 games video:

Here are some things I have so thoroughly withheld.

First off is this video of the SuperSwapMethod in action. (The demonstrated application I am not at liberty to release for the practicality of using it further in the future, and the safety of others.)

This application allows swaps of original PS3 games for other original PS3 of any firmware, of any style, and gave me extensive information on they system's acceptability of burned mediums.

First of all, the system on disk insert takes the param.sfo and copies it to RAM. On execute, RAM is location is cleared, but you may still be able to view garbage data instead. Param.sfo determines if the game is to boot or not.

So if not there (in memory), the game will not launch. As for launching executable files (self, elf, bin, sce) from this area, it can't be done. I have tried several files, and several variations of those files and have concluded that it can't be done without a hardware mod to the BD-ROM or a complete software modification of the sprx's.
