92w ago - Following up on their previous release, this weekend Iranian PlayStation 3 developers AS-Team have released ASToolPS3 version 2.3, which is a PS3 homebrew tool suite application for Windows users.
To quote, roughly translated on the current features and changes:
ASToolPS3 v2.3 PS3 Changes:
Added right-click to extract the package files (ie you have this option or do not do this)
Added possibility to check firmware (Czech md5, firmware type and firmware version, eg firmware or any I do not know and I'm told. jailbreak firmware)
Added Game Tools tab
Added ability to package the easiest possible way! The most convenient method in which a child could do it 5 months. (I say that with hard work behind this was simply a tough kid from the team address)
Added possibility to convert a package to a package! For example, you can play the 2 or 3 pkg files as they are updated or crack Ydvnh package to convert.
92w ago - Following up on our previous article, today Engadget (linked above) reports that Sony's PlayStation Suite will be open to all developers beginning in April with PS Vita support followed by a full SDK coming afterwards.
The PS Suite SDK will allow licensed developers to create and run performance testing on all PlayStation-certified Android smartphones and tablets as well as the PS Vita.
This SDK Beta will be free of charge, while the official version will come later this year and require a $99 annual subscription in return for allowing devs to make their wares commercially available on Sony's platform.

96w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez has shared some video footage today of PlayStation Vita's Augmented Reality Suite below.
To quote: At CES, we scored a backstage demo of Table Soccer, one of three augmented reality games that show off PS Vita's Wide Area Augmented Reality capability.
Today, Sony Santa Monica Sr. Manager Dave Thach returns with two new augmented reality games, Fireworks and Cliff Diving. Both are part of the Augmented Reality Suite coming exclusively to PS Vita on Feb 22nd on PSN for free. Also, packaged with your PS Vita will be six AR cards which will also work with Reality Fighters, and other great AR experiences.
Fireworks transforms the world around you into a firework display where you'll literally touch the apex of the firework for multipliers, combos and points. Cliff Diving introduces you to diver Dave, where you'll have him diving off your coffee table into a virtual body of water.
Before you check out this video, make sure you watch our very first tour with Table Soccer which completes the AR Suite on PS Vita.
Instead of telling you more, I'll let Dave Thach show you!
