SEGA/SNES Emulators on any PS3 Firmware, any Region via XMB!

329w ago - Courtesy of ST0RM53, linked above: Hey.. long time to write

With the hot news I saw I had to do something! Swap Magic on PS3 running? I thought it was patched, and indeed so, but only on US/Jap consoles.. I tried several swap magic (SM from now), but none worked... and this is becaused it IS patched, on fw 2.10 and up.

So I thought... if they patched a specific title, they seem they haven't patched others... so I found that I can create a bootable PS2 disc and I made one. I added many useful PS2 ELFs (not all useful for now..) but we have what we need. Ok, first the proof and then tutorial:





This method using an original SM disk has been already posted.. but never actully confirmed how or when SM works.. The method with an ORIGINAL SM DISC works only on EUROPEAN PS3s any FW, except 40gb ps3 which cannot run PS2 discs.

My method works along with above, but on ALL PS3's... any region, any FIRMWARE, except 40gb ps3 which cannot run ps2 disks again. AND you can run almost ANY ELF!!!

First lets see what we need:

Please note that only usb port 1 and 2 can be used, and ports 3 and 4 MUST be empty,...

Tipsters pour in with PS3 Trophy Screens and In-game XMB info

200°
331w ago - From PS3FanBoy, linked above: A short while ago a tipster leaked a PS3 trophy screen, while the validity of it was doubted, another tipster came into the frame to say what was posted is indeed real.

He sent along a new picture of one of the other pages too which are called gamer card and compare, and your gamer card will feature a trophy total and level.

To quote: Another tipster, calling himself "Gassy Snake," claims that he is a game developer who can vouch for The Patriots. He claims that the above image is real and, to prove it, proceeded to send us a picture of one of the other pages. These pages are called "gamer card" and "compare."

As you can see below, your gamer card will feature a trophy total and a "level." How you progress up these levels is anyone's guess, but there also seems to be some room for extra information of some kind.
