59w ago - Today PlayStation Vita developer PsDev has made available a PS Vita Magic Reader script for those interested and noted that PUP, SFO and PSF support are also currently in the works.
To quote from his blog (linked above): Made this script in about 10 min. It extracts the Magic ASCII, PUP Version and License.xml from a VITA PUP here is the script.
Right now the script is stupid and doesn’t do much, I plan on adding a full PUP dump and a SFO/PSF dumper.
# PsDev 2012. this script extract the PUP magic.
#Edit from PsiColio
#Will be adding on more stuff for it to extract in time…
# File names to extract from the PUP
Extract=( “Magic” “PUP_Version” “license.xml” )
#length starting from the offset and it ending in the offsets total length
length=( 0×8 0×10 0x724B4) #how many long the file is how much to copy, for example the Magic starts at 0×0 and the length is 0×8 bytes.
#offset of the Magic, Version and License
offset=( 0×0 0x9FF 0xC00 ) #where the file dump begins in the hex.
75w ago - Today the XCM Team have announced their new XCM XFPS PC Magic Box 2 which allows you to use PS3 or XBox 360 (wired/wireless) controllers and with PC games.
Below are further details from their official site alongside a Manual, and to quote:
The XFPS PC Magic Box 2 allows you to use an XBox 360 (wired/wireless) and PS3 controllers with PC games. Although the XBox 360 controller can be used on the PC but due to lack of keys remapping function, gamers may find the gaming controllers quite difficult to use on some PC games.
The XFPS PC Magic Box 2 complements this need. You're now able to remap any key on the keyboard to the game controller, using the right buttons/Trigger to shoot, the right button for punch or kick etc. and many more with the XCM PC Magic Box 2. This device is user friendly and also adds auto fire function. Let's start to play the PC games in another mode!
Functions and features:
1. Supports both XBox 360 (wired/wireless) and PS3 controllers with PC games. *NOTE: if using with XBox 360 wireless controller, the XBox 360 PC Wireless Gaming Receiver must be required.
2. Supports rumble function.
3. Supports XBox 360 wired...

Greetings out there in PlayStation land! I'm Mark Tsai, president and co-founder at Magic Pixel Games in Los Angeles.
Our name's new, but the team's not - we're industry veterans who have worked on many well-loved franchises such as Stephen Spielberg's Boom Blox and Guitar Hero, among many other titles in our combined resume.
But enough about us - I'm really excited to introduce you to our newest production: Carnival Island, which we produced in collaboration with SCEA Santa Monica Studio. We've taken the physical accuracy of the PlayStation Move motion controller, Magic Pixel's expertise in motion-controlled gaming, and the fun of the carnival... and rolled them into a truly family-friendly, instantly-accessible experience.
It's all the fun of the fair without having to find parking! Check out our launch walkthrough video to learn why PS Move's technology enables a precise, seamless experience.

87w ago - SCEE's Dan Vader has posted up a video trailer announcing that Might And Magic: Clash of Heroes PS3 DLC launches on PSN today.
To quote: The new 'I Am the Boss' update for Might and Magic Clash of Heroes gives players the chance to square off against all 4 evil bosses from the single player campaigns in Quick Battle or Online Multiplayer modes.
This is your chance to get another taste of vengeance as you take to the battlefield against Azexes, Count Carlyle, Lordess Ludmilla, and overlord Azh Rafir. But these villains aren't going to lie down and let your attacks march all over them.
Each boss has been balanced for Multiplayer action and equipped with their own brand new and uniquely devastating Hero Spells. Watch out for Azexes' Demon Portal spell, which summons attacks from the depths of Sheogh; your skin will crawl when Lordess Ludmilla calls upon her Spider Swarm to overwhelm you; try to hold onto your lunch when Count Carlyle belches up his Bile Blast straight at you; and you better build some strong walls to defend against Azh Rafir's deadly Palm Blast spell.
It may not be technically legal to unleash hellhounds on your boss at the office, or fire off a Pixie Blast at that manager whose...
110w ago - Ubisoft PR Coordinator Alex Monney has revealed that Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes hits PSN today and posted up a new video trailer as well.
To quote: As Mr. Nathan Vella mentioned last week, Ubisoft and Cabybara Games are set to cast Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes out into the wild later today.
Announced last year, Clash of Heroes is an HD remake of the classic DS title released in 2009. If you've seen what Capybara Games has done with their previous HD-ifying ventures, you'll know that the remake for Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes will blow your mind.
As someone who never got his hands on the DS game, I was very impressed with my hands-on time with the game (or impressed enough to accidentally skip a meal on Sunday because I was too busy playing :P).
Even better is the story that unfolds throughout the game. Now, I don't want to spoil things for anyone, but Clash of Heroes follows five heroes as they embark on a journey to retrieve a lost artifact. Through their adventures, you will visit five unique territories that will pose a variety of enemies and challenges....
