PS3 Slim is Now Available in Custom Colors by ColorWare

550°
240w ago - This is the first PlayStation 3 Slim case mod I've seen... for $149 you can customize the look of your current PS3 Slim, or get a new PlayStation 3 Slim already customized starting at $449 from ColorWare.

Using their PS3 Slim Design Studio interface it allows you to change the color of the PS3 Slim's top, bottom, logo and controllers to see what it will look like in different color combinations. Cool stuff!

To quote: "They have pulled out all the stops to not only colorize the console but the controller as well. You can customize the color of the PS3 logo, the top of the console, or the bottom.

Basically you can turn your PS3 Slim into a technicolor dreamcoat if you wanted. ColorWare would have it no other way. Once colorized, everything is high-gloss and scratch resistant. It's better than a paint job on your car!"
 

Belzar PS3 Modchip BETA Testing Rumored to Be Completed

243w ago - Update: It's now confirmed as a fake, see HERE for details.

According to their Web site (linked above), Beta testing on the alleged Belzar PS3 Modchip is now complete, they have a fully working PS3 modchip and are ready to manufacture.

Of course, Hacktronics (same company) have also stated the Infectus Team is confirming the Belzar PS3 Modchip, however, the Infectus Admin Arakon replied to their claim as follows:

"I'm quite sure it's fake. For years, noone got ANYTHING working on the ps3, and all of a sudden a company noone really knows supposedly has a chip ready that does EVERYTHING? No small steps, noone finding anything at all, just a chip out of nowhere that has every possible function? Highly unlikely."
From the Belzar update, to quote: "Belzar has finished beta testing, we have now sent the info and working chip to our manufacturers, and should be receiving a sample of the final retail product tomorrow, at which time we will take pictures, and place them on our site.

243w ago - Over the weekend geohot, famous for unlocking Apple's iPhone, has posted a few tweets on his Twitter account that he has began looking into hacking Sony's PS3 console.

He has also dropped by our Forums to enquire about the PS3 Hypervisor Decryption Keys, and has been in touch with CJPC via IRC as well.

To date, geohot has reported the following via tweets:

"ooo got access to a couple more pages of ram...still no hypervisor there tho. it's hiding in the top 2 MB.

anyone know if the 360 guys had a pt hypervisor to reverse?

my goal is to break out of the hypervisor... then see what my morals will allow.

gotta flip one little bit to hack the ps3. unfortunately the ps3 doesn't want me to flip it.

so, the hypervisor is in the first 0x1000 pages of RAM...think I could just pull an address line down and dump? not from kernel tho

PS3 memory map http://pastie.org/589218 ... why did I think this would be useful again? i really want these dumps @ bootloader

it'd be nice if that worked, linux accesses...[/b]

BUZZ Studio Cheat Bug for PlayStation 3 Uncovered

400°
245w ago - Today SKFU has uncovered a BUZZ Studio cheat bug for PS3. To quote from his page, linked above:

You're playing BUZZ Studio in PlayStation HOME and you never win? I found a simple trick to win always, it's lame to cheat but well... hehe^^

When you join a game there's a XML file sent to the PlayStation with all questions and answers which will appear in the current game. It looks like this XML Example.

You will notice a simple false/true structure, so it is pretty easy to find the correct answer before the BUZZ time limit ends.

So if you want to win, sniff the traffic while joining a BUZZ Studio game, copy and paste the URL of the XML which appears in the traffic-data in a web browser and you have a chance ;-)
