73w ago - Following up on the rumor from last week that a PlayStation Vita Hello World was achieved through a PSP Save Game exploit, today established PSP hacker wololo has confirmed it and stated that a Half-Byte Loader (HBL) is incoming!
To quote: Last week, an exploit on the PS Vita through the PSP emulator was announced by Mamosuke. The exploit was found by Teck4, and, we won't stress it enough, is a PSP exploit that gives us user mode access within the PSP emulator on the Vita. So this is not a Vita exploit per se, but it's still very cool.
Mamosuke confirmed this with a video a few days ago, and today I was able to confirm the exploit myself as shown in the video below (and I must admit that I spent way too much time working on that basic flame effect). The video below shows the exploit running on both a PSP 1000 and the PS Vita.
Here's also a screenshot since there is not autofocus on my stupid camera.
I spent a good amount of time today confirming some of my hopes that it will be possible to run HBL, at least to some extent, with that exploit. It doesn't mean I have...
86w ago - A few months ago Portal 2 was confirmed as the first PlayStation 3 game to be encrypted for PS3 3.60 Firmware, and this weekend scene release group DUPLEX have confirmed that Child of Eden by Ubisoft is the first PS3 3.7x Firmware title.
To quote from the Child.Of.Eden.PS3-DUPLEX release:
Release Info: Under the direction of world-renown creative director Tetsuya Mizuguchi. The PS3 version of the game is PlayStation Move compatible, but it's not required to play the game. With spectacular visuals and audio synchronized to the player's movements, Child of Eden is a captivating game that sets players off on a trip to decontaminate an unknown virus to restore hope and peace to Eden.
Child of Eden is the "multi-sensory shooter" that will send players diving into a kaleidoscopic matrix of synchronized music and mind-blowing visuals that will usher forth yet another landmark game experience from the mind of renowned game designer Tetsuya Mizuguchi, its creator.
105w ago - With PSN back online Sony is now resuming their regular PS3 gaming news updates, starting today with European Product Manager Elliott Linger confirming InFamous 2 PS3 PAL release dates for June 8th / 10th.
To quote: I'm very pleased to confirm that inFamous 2 has now gone gold and will release across PAL on 8th / 10th of June - here's how it splits out:
• UK, Germany & Ireland: 10th June
• Rest of PAL: 8th June
Undoubtedly one of 2011′s most eagerly anticipated titles, inFamous 2, the story of reluctant superhero Cole MacGrath, will, like the karma system in the game, offer a number of different choices when you hit stores come release.
As you may know, we have already announced the lenticular Special Edition - which comes with a powershot of extra digital content including the Electrocution Grenade power, Golden Amp and an exclusive Cole MacGrath skin from inFamous 1.
Alternatively, you can harness the power of a hero and pick up the luxury Hero Edition which comes complete with Lightning Hook downloadable power, Kessler skin, a Cole MacGrath figurine and inFamous comic from graphic novel legends DC Comics, a replica Cole MacGrath messenger bag and the inFamous 2 digital soundtrack.
109w ago - Today Portal 2 has been confirmed as the first PS3 3.60 Firmware encrypted game, however, as it spreads on torrent sites PlayStation 3 hackers are already examining potential work-arounds to get the game running for PS3 Custom Firmware users.
To quote: We all knew this day would be coming, just like before with the v3.50!
Yep, all the rumors were right! -- Portal 2 would be the first game that was pressed using the currently unreleased APP v3.60 keys!
If you are looking to enjoy the sequel to the acclaimed Valve's puzzle-action hybrid, the Portal 2, then you need to learn to setup your own portal, because playing it on a 3.55 CFW console right now is not possible.
You are looking at different sets of method being tested such as the famous PARAM.SFO editing, EBOOT decrypting, it's just useless without the 3.60 keys. To say that the upcoming L.A. Noire is on the same ride will be my heartbreaking May moment.
So, I hope someone will find the solution for this or just roll on the 3.60 CFW already! But remember to eat some cheese with all that wine!
Something always unfolds in the scene, to get you back into the 'gaming'!
