Video: Star Trek Teleports to PlayStation 3 with Co-op and 3D

200°
105w ago - Sony Correspondent Andy Burt has announced today alongside a video trailer that Star Trek is teleporting to PlayStation 3 complete with both co-op and 3D for fans!

To quote: Thanks to the storytelling wizardry and storytelling chops of J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot, one of the most beloved sci-fi series in history teeters on the brink of a renaissance among fans and newcomers alike.

With Star Trek for PS3, developer Digital Extremes is crafting a standalone story that takes place between the 2009 film and the upcoming sequel. The hope: to boldly go where no licensed game has gone before.

Star Trek is a cooperative third-person shooter, but that description doesn€t do the game much justice. The two controllable characters, Captain Kirk and Spock, both experience the story differently, with branching paths and narratives that will give the game a substantial amount of replay value.





Each character is also equipped with their own individual weapons and skills, each complementing the other in a variety of ways. For instance, Spock's Vulcan mind meld ability allows him to turn foes into allies, forcing oncoming threats...
 

EA Announces Crysis 3 for PS3, Dated for 2013 with LE Plan Details

500°
105w ago - Following last week's leaks, today Electronic Arts has had no choice but to spill the beans and announce Crysis 3, revealing its 2013 release projection and limited edition plans.

To quote: Crysis 3 returns to New York, with Prophet returning to find the city trapped in a "Nanodome" by the Cell Corporation. It promises "seven distinct and treacherous environments" as the city becomes engulfed in natural flora, having turned into an "urban rainforest." This seems to confirm suggestions that the game would blend the jungle setting of the first game with the city environments of the second.

Gameplay has been described as "sandbox," so don't expect it to be as linear as the last one.

Pre-order bonuses have already been revealed, with select retailers offering various multiplayer packs, detailed below. Furthermore, the Crysis 3 Hunter Edition is available to pre-order now, and includes the "Hunter" Nanosuit module, a bonus XP boost for the multiplayer, three exclusive dog tags, and a unique skin for the debuting composite bow weapon.

Crysis 3 will be available in Spring of next year.

Stalker Pack – Includes the base game,...

For those unaware, Caprice32 is a software emulator of the Amstrad CPC 8-bit home computer series. The emulator faithfully imitates the CPC464, CPC664, and CPC6128 models.

Download: Caprice32 4.1.0 DBG Amstrad CPC 8-Bit Emulator PS3 Port / Caprice32 4.1.0 DBG Amstrad CPC 8-Bit Emulator PS3 Port (Source Code)

To quote: Originally, I was thinking about to not release to all until I update to the Caprice 4.2.0 version, but since I've no time left to solve some vdu bug in 4.2.0, I decide to release the dbg version based on the 4.1 version.

(as you can play some old good games with this version, but be sure to know what exactly is an Amstrad CPC computer before lunch it on the PS3 ) So ...

What?: A quick port of caprice32-4.1.0 to ps3 using PSL1GHTV2 / SDL.
Why? : It was the first computer i own.
Who? : Rtype
 

Guide to Porting VHBL (PS Vita Half-Byte Loader) Game Exploits

1300°
107w ago - This weekend PlayStation Vita developer wololo has made available a guide to porting VHBL (PS Vita Half-Byte Loader) to individual game exploits for those interested.

This news comes proceeding the recent Motorstorm Arctic Edge and Everybody's Tennis PSP / PS Vita game exploits.

Below is the guide, to quote from his blog (linked above): This guide assumes that you found a user mode exploit in a game, and that you were able to write a binary loader.

So now what’s next? Well, as you probably know if you’ve gone that far, the PSP scene doesn’t really like “hello worlds”. A hello world is nice, but it accomplishes nothing, it just draws Sony’s attention to your exploit, and you know the vulnerability will be patched soon, while nobody really used the exploit.

Well, the next step is, ideally, a HEN or a custom firmware. Of course, this requires a kernel exploit, and...
