PS3 gets unofficial regional user faces

50°
353w ago - McBacon was playing around with the XMB options and noticed that you can change the happy faces in the user menu but there is no regional icons options.

He expects that this was probably due to Sony not encouraging multiple accounts across different countries but he himself has gone on and created small custom ones.

To quote: So I was messing around in the XMB and noticed that you can change the little happy faces in the Users menu, but I was shocked to see that Sony didn't include any regional icons.

They probably don't want to encourage multiple accounts across different countries, but as most of us at GAF do so I created these little custom ones.
 

P3DXLoad Video available!

353w 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°
354w 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°
354w 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.
