To quote: Hi. The author of this application (Name: doobz) did not give permission for it's release. He claimed he was close to ready, but then he vanished and no one has seen him in months. We do not know of his location or status. It is a mystery.
As such I'm releasing the last version of the tool he provided prior to his disappearance.
Official RetroXMB README (Partial)
RetroXMB is an app that makes it easy to install content on your PS3 XMB. I was sick of using "managers" to load other apps, i wanted it to be like the psp era where you clicked the icon and the app started. So this is my attempt at that
12w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements is here with the new PS3, PS Vita and PSN releases for the upcoming week today, as follows:
It's finally here. The ambitious, long-awaited open world from Rockstar Games, Grand Theft Auto V, hits PS3 this week.
The Grand Theft Auto franchise has commanded the attention of gamers for years, and the launch of a new entry in the series is a true industry event. And this is no exception.
Grand Theft Auto V introducers gamers to a trio of protagonists pulled (once again) into a life of crime.
New to the series, Grand Theft Auto V supports dynamic switching between these three characters, enabling players to weave in and out of action - and the sprawling city of Los Santos.
Plan heists, drive luxurious cars, grab a round of golf, or just cause trouble. All and more await in Los Santos.
But Grand Theft Auto V isn't the only game dropping next week. Real Boxing hits PS Vita and brings with it an eye-catching boxing simulation with refined controls and additional features. For the complete list of games coming, head on down.
Enjoy the Drop, and tell us what you think of our new, streamlined format!
