PS3 Cracks Quicker Than the Rest, Passwords That Is

400°
364w ago - Want to get yourself some money in double quick time, or get hold of some top secret government documents? Then why not use your PS3 to crack some passwords faster than ever before!

Security researcher Nick Breese has harnessed the power of the PS3's cell processor to allow him to crack passwords with only a few hours work - despite formerly taking days to solve.

An Intel chip can go through 10-15 million cycles a second, whereas the PS3's chip can get through 1.4 billion.

"Brute force" password cracking is a simple method of simply trying every possible combination of characters until the correct combination is found. Having multiple cores in the PS3 chip allows it to try several passwords at once, speeding up the work greatly.

Don't panic though! You won't have a PS3 breaking into your bank account any time soon, though, as these eight-character passwords are rudimentary when compared to the sophisticated encryption used to protect online transactions and similar transfers of important information.
 

Playstation 3 Turns Into Useless Brick After Firmware Update 2.01

50°
364w ago - Want your own BrickStation 3? Upgrade to 2.01 and hold your breath... Starting last week, PS3 owners started reporting that their next gen console would not read their Blu-Ray discs. Some users reported that their PS3 would not even read DVDs. All reports started to come in after gamers made the upgrade to 2.01.

"I inserted Blu Ray Disc into PS3 for first time and movie appeared under video tab. It started to play and i started skipping previews and then all of a sudden screen went blank. I went back to PS3 home screen and tried ejected and inserting Blu Ray movie back into PS3 and the icon fails to appear under the video tab. I then tried DVD and that did not appear either. PS3 Games still work. Please help!"

Today when I myself tried to update my PS3 to 2.01, I was left with a half bricked PS3. What I mean by this is that I can longer use any media that resembles a severely flattened donut on my PS3. This includes cds, dvds, games, and blu-ray disks. Some of you may be familiar with the message of "Disc Unreadable/ Unrecognized", however this does not even show up when a disc is inserted.

Tomorrow I am heading over to Best Buy to swap it out, and perhaps you should you should too if you have the best buy warranty. However, while this solution will get you back up and running quickly,...
 

Sony: 15 PS3 exclusives in 7 months, 15 internal studios working on PS games

50°
364w ago - There will be 15 exclusive PlayStation 3 games between September 2007 and April 2008, according to SCEA's Peter Dille.

Sony's senior VP of marketing also said that Sony has "15 internal studios working on PlayStation titles, more than Microsoft and Nintendo combined." Today's Reuters story examines the decline in PlayStation brand exclusives and rise in multiplatform games.

Dille's simple answer for the decline is that third-party publishers need to recoup their investment. The real question that he doesn't answer is, which exclusives span the seven months he's talking about?

September through December exclusives include:
1. Heavenly Sword 9/12
2. Folklore 10/9
3. Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction 10/23
4. Eye of Judgment 10/24
5. NBA 08 11/2
6. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune 11/20
7. Time Crisis 4 11/20
8. Unreal Tournament III 12/10

Exclusives still to come during early 2008...
9. Haze
10. LittleBigPlanet
11. Killzone 2
12. SOCOM: Confrontation
13. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of Patriots
14. SingStar
15. MLB 08

Dille's definition of "exclusives" is...

Users can download the docu free through Dec. 6. The other two parts will go online after the game's launch.

Sony plans to add to its online service lineup with pics and other video content from SPE and other companies.
