To quote: It's been a while since my last post! A lot has been happening lately, I've mostly kept my followers updated on what's new through my Twitter account, but I think that this deserves a post of its own!

I've been reversing some PPC code in IDA and unfortunately, it doesn't handle the PS3 files very well, so I wrote a lot of scripts in order to make it parse the files properly! There was one thing missing though that I couldn't do with an .idc script : handling of jump tables.

Yesterday, I took on the task of writing an IDA plugin in order to parse the ppc code and find jump tables and define them in IDA's kernel so the analysis is done properly! It was a very fun and exciting challenge that I enjoyed doing, and I'm happy to say that I succeeded and it works very well (on the files I tried anyways).

The IDA API is extensive and easy to use, and allows you to do pretty much anything!...

FuturLab Sony Pitch: Flash Devs Licensed for PSP and PS3 on PSN

50°
241w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden has revealed today how Flash developers recently became licensed PSP and PS3 video game developers on PSN.

To quote: Today I'm going to spill the beans on how a bunch of Flash developers managed to become licensed to make games for PSP and PS3!

Contrary to popular belief, we didn't have lots of games under our belt; none of us had worked on a commercial video game before, and none of us knew anything about C or C++.

What we did have was a great idea and the naïve enthusiasm to rock up to Sony's Liverpool headquarters and present it in person.

It all started back in 2007 when I'd just finished building our Flash game engine, [Register or Login to view links]. We decided to use the engine to develop an idea I'd had at University. The idea was essentially a game that reaches outside of the console, with characters in the game contacting players through instant messaging, email and telephone calls.

You might have heard of this kind of game, it's called an [Register or Login to view links] (or ARG - pronounced A.R.G.).

So we used our engine to build a [Register or Login to view links] and started...

700°
270w ago - Recently Sony became involved in a class action suit over PS3 Firmware 3.0 issues.

The PS3 Devs are currently seeking someone to donate (or sell, if necessary) a PS3 Blu-ray drive that is confirmed to be dead from the v3.00 Firmware Update that Sony recently pulled.

It would also help if those who can't offer their dead drives could reply with their drive details.

For example, what type of PS3 console (CExxx number off the back) and what PS3 Firmware version that it had when it worked, and what the unit was updated to when it failed.

Note: Please be certain that the unit is v3.00 as it will be no help at all if after being found dead the drive was updated to v3.01 in attempt to fix it. Reply below if you can help us out- Thanks!
