Introducing PS3 Batarang: PS3 Boomerang Controller Mod Arrives

50°
328w ago - HotDog-Cart recently completed this PlayStation 3 boomerang controller. The boomerang was originally shown with the PlayStation 3 prototype, and was severely panned by the press... but now it's a reality as a result of some custom modification work.

He started with a cheap 3rd-party controller that was approximately boomerang shaped. He enlarged the controller body ~20% using bondo. The internals were replaced with gear from an official Sony controller. It was finished with a coat of black paint.

It's definitely a nice build and the new internals mean it probably feels as good as any factory controller.

To quote: What I basically did was take a cheap PS2 boomerang-ish shaped controller, and take its guts out and modify a REAL official Six Axis Controller and put it inside the shell. I also expanded the shell 15%.

I got the controller painted black, so it would be a batman inspired "Batarang Controller".

Please excuse my picture quality. My 5mp camera thinks brand new batteries, are dead. Also, excuse my bondo job. It was my first time.

You can see the white PS button. I didnt put any image there due to copyright reasons.

New X-Rated Mod discovered in GTA IV?!

300°
347w ago - Those clever hackers have done it again! Hacker group VladsBoys' analysis of the pirated copy of GTA IV for the 360 (leaked days before retail release) has reeled in a big one. The cyber-sleuths knew they were on the trail of something big and yes, you guessed it, they found another never-intended-for-retail-consumption chunk of code in a GTA game.

What the hackers found seems to be an abandoned mission that Rockstar at some point intended on including in the game. We have no idea how far into the process this mission got before it was pulled, but we're pretty sure they knew what they were doing by the mission name... that name was Hot Coughing.

Hacker R*Fan4Lyfe noted in a forum post that while the audio files for the mission were not included in the disc image (and presumably are not on the retail disc either,) the subtitles for the mission dialogue were still present. The mission involves Niko going to the hospital after pulling a groin muscle in one of the game's side missions; a mission that is actually present in the retail game.

While in the hospital, Niko is hounded by an ambulance chasing attorney humorously named Jerk Thompson. The attorney pesters Niko about his accident, trying to convince him that violent cartoons such as Tom & Jerry or Looney Tunes were to blame....

349w ago - The new Call of Duty 4 Variety Map Pack is still undergoing certification by Sony.

Things are probably busy on Sony's side with the upcoming re-launch of the PLAYSTATION Store and all the new content coming in the weeks ahead. No firm release date has been confirmed just yet.

In the meantime, Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling assures PLAYSTATION 3 CoD4 gamers that there will be a Double XP weekend and a "Play With Infinity Ward" event when the Map Pack is released.

Xbox 360 CoD4 gamers will have the Call of Duty 4 LIVE Fire Weekend 2008 this upcoming weekend, and previously had the Double XP event when the Map Pack was released for the Xbox 360.

Download: Samus Aran v1.0 USERDATA.JAM for PS3 [Right-click, Save As]

From the ReadMe file:

How to use this model:

- Put USERDATA.JAM on the root of a memory stick and plug it into your PS3.

Special Note:

The PS3 doesn't support custom family code as of v1.10. So the Samus model for PS3 is but a stripped down version of her PC counter part. There's no custom animations, physics, FPV hands nor gibs. As soon as a potential patch is released for PS3 that unlocks the family code, I'll release an updated and...
