229w ago - SCEA PR Manager Eric Levine has posted up a MLB The Show Opening Day PS3 trailer video today shawcasing the season's first pitch, as follows:

Opening Day is finally here! The 2010 [Register or Login to view links] season debuted last night with [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links] taking center stage at Fenway, with Boston ultimately edging out New York, 9-7.

For those of you who caught the game, the telecast featured multiple airings of our Joe Mauer/Kevin Butler commercial , as well as other in-game mentions – just another way to showcase MLB 10: The Show during big moments in baseball.

I'm also happy to report that The Show is still enjoying some great feedback from the media. Just recently [Register or Login to view links] and the [Register or Login to view links] posted reviews that are worth checking out, and [Register or Login to view links] included the game in their Opening Day Gear Guide.

Open Remote Play (ORP) v1.3 for the Nokia N900 Released

350°
241w ago - Inspired by the recent Nokia N900 via BlueMaemo video, today kakarotoks has ported PS3 Open Remote Play (ORP) for the Nokia N900.

Download: Open Remote Play (ORP) v1.3 for Nokia N900

To quote: For those interested, here's a build of Open Remote Play running on the N900.

Just follow the instructions... I didn't bother creating a .deb, so just scp those files somewhere on your N900 (like /opt/orp) and run /opt/orp/orpui directly through xterm or using ssh.

It works, but it seems that the rendering with the SDL is extremely CPU hungry so it's slower than bearable, not usable at all actually... The UI also needs some work. I had to disable the bitrate setting in the profile edition page, because it didn't fit in the resolution of the screen, and there was no scrollbar, so it was impossible to save the ip address of the ps3.

The input key bindings also need to be changed since they refer to non existing keys on the N900 keyboard (F1/F2/F3/F4/Escape/etc..). I tried to take a screencast, but it didn't work...
 

GeoHot Resumes Sony PS3 Hacking, Opens PS3 Hacks Blog

243w ago - This weekend GeoHot, the hacker responsible for several Apple iPhone hacks, has returned to Sony PS3 hacking after his initial announcement a few months back and has opened a PS3 hacks blog (linked above).

He recently made this [Register or Login to view links]:

"I just pulled everything from the USB bus... [Register or Login to view links] the Cell processor SPI bus, PS3 is going down :-)"

These are the latest posts on his new PS3 hacks blog:

Cell SPI

The Cell processor has an SPI port which is used to configure the chip on startup. Well documented [Register or Login to view links]. It also allows hypervisor level MMIO registers to be accessed. In the PS3, the south bridge sets up the cell, and the traces connecting them are on the bottom layer of the board. Cut them and stick an FPGA between.

Quick theoretical attack. Set an SPU's user memory region to overlap with the current HTAB. Change the HTAB to allow read/write to the hypervisor! If that works it's full compromise...
