118w ago - Today we received word from Dutch site [Register or Login to view links] (ConsoleWinkel) of a rumor that a Sony PS3 Blu-ray drive emulation PCB is currently in development which will allow users to unlock their PlayStation 3 console without the use of Custom Firmware or dongles.

Reportedly they have been in contact with [Register or Login to view links] who stated a team (possibly the Wasabi or Drivekey team) is working on the PS3 Blu-ray drive emulation PCB that is slated for release later this year.

They have also speculated via e-mail that the project has been kept under tight wraps due to Sony being unable to stop this new PS3 hack via Firmware updates, meaning once it becomes public Sony's legal team will be on the warpath in full force.

Below are some concept pictures (not actual finished product pictures) from their site and the details, roughly translated as follows:

The version 1.8 firmware update was mentioned during Sony's announcement of the PlayStation 2 Game Archives service for PlayStation 3."

Today ryukyu22 has discovered PS1 Classic game Buzz Lightyear of Star Command on the PS Vita European PlayStation Store which sparked debate as to whether Sony is adding PSOne emulation support to the new handheld console.

Sony Announces Ghostlight to Release Fate / Extra for PSP

100°
118w ago - Today Community Manager Ross Brierley at Ghostlight has announced that they will be releasing Fate / Extra for Sony's PlayStation Portable handheld video game console with details below.

To quote: Today I'm here to talk to you about Ghostlight's latest JRPG release, Fate/EXTRA.

Developed by Imagepooch and TYPE-MOON, Fate/EXTRA is an epic PSP title set in a parallel universe to that of the hugely popular Japanese visual novel Fate/Stay Night.

At first glance, Fate/EXTRA appears to be set inside a Japanese high school. However, it soon becomes clear that something far stranger is at work, as the school itself is in fact an elaborate computer simulation designed as a battleground in the fight for the Holy Grail, a powerful artefact which will grant the victor's desire.

The students themselves are either mages seeking the grail, or merely NPCs created to ensure the smooth running of the tournament.

Summoning legendary heroes from the depths of the past (called 'Servants') to battle alongside them, the mages must battle each other to be the one to claim the Grail. But the stakes are high and only death awaits those who fall in battle.

Fate/EXTRA also features a truly original battle system, which, despite being simple to learn, has real depth...
