68w ago - The Game Atelier Lead Game Designer Dr. Lakav has announced today that SunFlowers are beaming to PlayStation Vita this Fall.
Below are the details, to quote: Hello everyone, we are very proud to present SunFlowers, coming this autumn to PS Vita.
At first sight this game may look pretty casual – indeed, its objective is pretty simple: you have to grow flowers using chain-reactions.
You control the Sun, and you have the power to grow beautiful flowers on the ground. To do this, you shoot rays of sunlight through passing clouds, which turns the sunlight into water, which in turn causes the plants to grow. But if a sun ray touches a seed or a flower, it starts to burn. Thankfully, a drop of water will clear that burn right up.
When a flower reaches maturity, two new seeds pop out on both sides of it. If one new seed drops on an empty space it will be planted. If there's already another flower the seed will bounce on it until it reaches a clear slot (and that's how you make Combos!).
Every flower grown during a game goes directly in your virtual garden, where you can watch your collection and even offer them to your friends or a "near" player. See if you can collect all the flowers!
Everybody can enjoy SunFlowers, from casual to core gamers, so the...

153w ago - Today PlayStation 3 hacking group Fail0verflow has tweeted news of a Standalone Linux PS3 Slim 27C3 Fail0verflow demo that Marcan42 wanted to show off during this year's 27C3 but couldn't due to the video not working.
From the video's caption, to quote: "This is what the fail0verflow 27c3 demo *should* have looked like. As it turns out, the reason why we didn't have working video and had to fall back to an SSH demo was because this Slim is too new to run version 3.15 (what we tried to run), since it does not correctly support this particular revision of the RSX. So here's the same demo, except with version 3.41, which does work."
For those who missed it, pytey of Fail0verflow was also recently interviewed by the BBC.
The video can be seen below, and here are some related Fail0verflow tweets:

153w ago - Today the BBC (linked above) has published an interview conducted with PlayStation 3 hackers fail0verflow and GeoHot on the recent PS3 hacks and summarizing the unveiling Sony's secret key.
Below is the interview, to quote: "The PlayStation 3's security has been broken by hackers, potentially allowing anyone to run any software - including pirated games - on the console
A collective of hackers recently showed off a method that could force the system to reveal secret keys used to load software on to the machine.
A US hacker, who gained notoriety for unlocking Apple's iPhone, has now used a similar method to extract the PS3's master key and publish it online. Sony declined to comment on the hack.
"The complete console is compromised - there is no recovery from this," said pytey, a member of the fail0verflow group of hackers, who revealed the initial exploit at the Chaos Communication Congress in Berlin in December.
