Sony Announces SingStar Client on the PlayStation 3 XMB, No Disc

100°
78w ago - Sony DanceStar Content Manager Nina Scherer has announced today that the SingStar client is coming to the PlayStation 3 XMB meaning no disc will be required any longer!

To quote: I promised you exciting news, so here it is! SingStar, the ultimate competitive singing game for PlayStation 3, will now be available to everyone in SCE Europe territories (as well as Australia and New Zealand) as a free download straight from the XMB.

Yes, that's right, no more need to slot in a disc to get that party started. Simply install SingStar from the XMB and you will be able to start singing in no time, share your performances with the community and visit the SingStore to get hold of more great tracks for your collection.

I've listed all the great things about SingStar on the XMB for you below but I am most excited about the fact that you can now play SingStar with your PlayStation Eye camera.

We have spent many an afternoon testing this in the office and are pretty pleased with it so please let us know what you think! This will only work for single player mode, so if you're gearing up for a serious SingStar battle, you'll obviously still need to plug in some mics.

If you're brand new to SingStar and have never...

The klicensee_dumper should speed up the gathering of klicensees. One of dumpers is an alternative to klicensee bruteforcer which released before because some klicensee keys cannot be bruteforced. Klicensee is used to resign/decrypt/encrypt self/sprx/edat.

As for the other dumper (for a disc key), I'm writing a tool to decrypt/encrypt saves and resign them for your console...

True Blue PS3 Disc BCA Codes Leaked By OxweB, Deemed Useless

1500°
84w ago - Today /GriFFin reports that OxweB has apparently leaked the True Blue PS3 disc BCA codes (although curiously a source wasn't specified), however, they are now conveniently deemed useless as the DRM-infected USB dongle itself.

To quote: When the True Blue dongle first launched last year, it was originally using 'special' blu-ray discs to play games, instead of just DRMencoded eboots on the HDD.

But even after all the Paradox releases, there was a few games that only were available still on 'special' blu-ray discs. Over the course of last year, various groups try to figure out how to copy these discs, as they were sadly pirate stores that wish to sell them to their customers. Finally have much research the BD-Rom marks called 'BCA Codes' were figured out so they could by copied on normal blu-ray burner.

And now an person by the name 'OxweB' has leaked them onto the 'net, as basically they are useless now, but still it is part of sad scene PS3 history!

These are BCA codes off the TB discs (the barcode on the inner part of the disc).

You to can read them off the disc yourself with a scanner or magnifying glass, they are...
