Top 4 reasons piracy hasn’t hit the PS3

50°
350w ago - In Asia's gaming culture, piracy has been common place for every major game console since the NES. In the mid 90's a device called the UFO, allowed ROM games stored on floppy disks to be played on the SNES via a disk-drive like device that sat on top of the SNES. The 32-bit era saw the rise of mod-chips and insane swap-tricks to get past CD region lockouts.

Not much has changed in the generations that followed. Even today, the Xbox 360, Wii, DS and PSP have all fallen victim to heavy piracy. The advent of torrent sites and faster download speeds don't do the major players any favors either. The PS3, on the other hand, remains a different story. I have been keeping an eye on the local pirating scene, and with almost a year after the PS3's release, it appears to be the only console piracy free. On that note, I have concluded these reasons for the PS3's success in the anti-piracy war. (Note: despite the tone of this article, I have no doubt that eventually, technology will catch up and savvy pirates will have their way)

4. Hardware complexity
Let me preface this by saying that I'm by no means an engineer or have any expertise with console hardware, but from what I've heard from around the Net, I've decided to include this point with some doubt. With the Xbox 360, all that is needed is...

350w ago - According to the official PlayStation UK site, the recent PSP Firmware 3.72 update includes a new Remote Play feature called Remote Start, which allows users to remotely turn on their PS3 from the PSP. This was one of the rumored features for the upcoming PS3 Firmware v2.00 update.

To use the feature, Firmware v2.00 must be installed on your PS3. Last we heard, the next PS3 Firmware update was slated for the end of October.. which leaves it hitting within the next 1-2 days if Internet rumors hold true.

UT3 site gets massive update

50°
350w ago - The official Unreal Tournament website has been updated with a lot of new content such as new vehicles, weapons and characters information, and more.

Although not completely finished, you can still continue to download movies and view high-resolution screen shots. Below you will find some screen shots that we didn't have along with a new concept art image titled "Dusk".

Unreal Tournament 3 is actually the fourth game in the Unreal Tournament series, but has been numbered in terms of the engine it runs on. The original Unreal Tournament uses the first Unreal Engine, while UT2003 and UT2004 uses Unreal Engine 2. Since both UT2K3 and UT2K4 use the same engine, they are considered to be the same generation.

User designed levels will be downloadable for the PlayStation 3 console via the Playstation Store. Unfortunately, gamers with the console version will not be able to design levels without having the PC version, as the console version does not include the level editor.

USB Keyboard and mouse controls will also be supported for the PS3 version. The PS3 version will allow the administrator of the server to allow keyboard and mouse or only Sixaxis remote. The motion-sensitive Sixaxis controller will allow aiming by tilting the controller.
