To quote: This is incredible, hackers are making big progress towards reverse engineering the hypervisor on the PS3. The latest work and release comes from a developer who goes by the name 'user'-which is a hypervisor debugging tool that can run from GameOS.
The tasks can be performed using this tool: Com Lib debug, Storage Manager debug, SB Manager debug, Update Manager debug, SYSCON debug, Dispatch Manager debug, VTRM debug, and patch Dispatch Manager policies.
• Enable debug for some HV services
• Patch Dispatch Manager policies (allow everything)

From the video's caption: PS3Tetris for the PS3, this is homebrew, so will only run on an JailBroken PS3, uses ooPo's toolchain, and PSL1GHT making it completely legal =-), this also takes advantage of the GPU, using the RSX for all rendering, which is awesome.
To quote: The video above is from an earlier state, the game is now nearly complete and created by me, and now released, so enjoy.
Source: have to fix 2 bugs first, then will release source.
1. Scores don't save (I don't know why yet!)
2. Attempting to play in 480p causes...
