67w ago - Hi sceners, today I have a nice little preview video for you of a new alphabetical sort XMB hack for AC1D CFW.
You may ask now what's the diff to bahamuloard's txt editing one? Well you will see in the video but I'll also explain it here. First his one is a txt edit where mostly on the PS3 txt files are reflections of definitions not real definition files.
Then he edits 3 definitions and the PS3 for sure will rewrite minimum 2 off them and in most case she overwrite all 3. I needed hours of tries to get it only for one time working and even then it doesn't worked for the ALL mode in the game category.
So this hack is real and work for all three modes: Format, Tags and All. Also it works for the other categories like Video or Photo.
I hope for a Beta release of AC1D CFW within the next 1 or two weeks. I'm still working on the convert of Retail 2 Debug consoles and also on the PS3 3.6+ game support. And now enjoy the video and stay tuned.

68w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman shared a hands-on video preview today of Mortal Kombat for the PlayStation Vita handheld.
To quote: I've got good news, and I've got good news. First, the good news: Based on my recent hands-on play sessions, Mortal Kombat on PS Vita plays identically to its PS3 counterpart.
That means fluid 60 frames-per-second fighting, lush presentation, and every bit of content from the console version. That includes the critically acclaimed Story mode, a full character roster, the Krypt, the works.
I also tried out a series of local (non-internet) Wifi multiplayer matches, and I'm happy to report that the game felt smooth and responsive with no perceptible lag. If you're skeptical, watch the video above to see local multiplayer - and my hairy, hairy paws - in action.
Now for the good news: The PS Vita version adds an ambitious array of extra content, starting with every piece of DLC ever released on PS3. That means you'll be able to play as Freddy Krueger, Kenshi, Rain, and Skarlet from day one, and select MK1 and MK2 retro-styled costumes to drape over your male and female ninja characters.
The Vita version sweetens the pot with 15 more exclusive costumes,...
