PS3 rear USB port mod unveiled!

250°
348w ago - MacSolidWorks undertook the painful process of modifying his PS3 in order to provide it with a rear USB mod for use with the Playstation Eye.

After searching high and low for instructions, he decided to just go ahead and perform the mod himself as shown in the video below.

To quote: I modified my PS3 to have a rear USB port for my Playstation EYE. I looked all over the web for instructions on how to do this but couldn't find anything. So I just did it myself.





Here are the results:

1. It works.

2. As long as you don't plug anything into the front USB port you've "borrowed" for the rear port, everything is fine.

3. If you plug something into the "borrowed" port, both peripherals stop working and you'll need to restart the PS3.

4. This setup cannot act like a true USB hub as it's just a pass-thru for one of the front ports.

Since this setup is not optimal and I'd like at least 2 USB ports on the back of my PS3, I'm currently working on a new mod that will allow a true hub on the back eliminating the aforementioned limitations.

350w ago - Courtesy of fall: Play Unreal Tournament 3 from an over the shoulder view, like Gears of War or Mass Effect. This new camera view enhances the action and really brings you into the fight!

Enter the battle with an over the shoulder camera and see the Action from an all new perspective! Action Cam is designed to offer better visibility, depth, and feedback to the player than the normal first person view, and offers pixel-perfect accuracy.

Action Cam v1.0 is released onto our favorite console and ready for the masses to play around with! Thanks to StuntF50 for helping test the PS3 version, as I don't own one.

Download: PS3 UT3 Mutator Action Cam v1.0

To install on your PS3:

1. Unzip the file to the root directory of any memory card that is readable by your PlayStation 3. It is already in the proper directory structure but, just in case, the path and filename need to be: ps3savedatablus30086-modimportuserdata.jam

Bluetooth PSP/PS2 Headset Mod

50°
353w ago - I was bored and decided to come up with a little mod to give me something to do. So here it is: A universal Bluetooth headset mod for the PSP and PS2/ PS2 games on PS3.

With this mod I'm able to voice chat wirelessly on PSP games like the SOCOM FTB franchise using my Bluetooth headset. In addition to working with the PSP I can also use the same Bluetooth headset to voice chat wirelessly on any PS2.

In case you didn't know if you try to play say SOCOM: Combined Assault (a PS2 game) on the PS3 without this mod you cannot use a Bluetooth headset because the PS2 game is not coded to take advantage of the PS3's Bluetooth functionality, but with this now you can!

Note: I'm in the process of writing up step by step guide to build your own which I intend to release on the instructables site.

Thanks for looking,

Unreal Tournament PS3 mod cooking update coming soon

50°
355w ago - An update for Unreal Tournament Engine editor, that will allow UT3 mod-makers to cook their mods into the required PS3 format is coming soon. It should be released next week after wider testing.

To quote: We're very close to releasing an update to the Unreal Engine 3 editor, that comes with the PC version of UT3, that will allow UT3 mod-makers to cook their mods into the required PS3 format. We've been doing some internal testing and we're hoping to expand to a wider group tomorrow or Friday.

If all goes well then we should see the update released next week which is what I expect will happen. Obviously the process works, as we put out a few mods before Christmas and people seem to be playing them, but it is the update to the editor that we're testing.
