In part 1, Michiel and Frank talk about the challenges they faced and the discoveries they made during the conversion process.
Victor Zuylen: What prompted the HD remaster of Killzone?
Michiel van der Leeuw, Technical Director, Guerrilla: It was an idea whose time had come. Internally we had talked about bringing Killzone to PlayStation 3 before - Killzone fans frequently asked us about it, and we knew from other developers that such projects could be a lot of fun.
VZ: How many of the original team were involved?
ML: A number of developers who worked on the original Killzone for PlayStation 2 helped get this project off the ground, including Guerrilla's main producer, Angie Smets, who first started producing on Killzone; producer...

To quote: Thank you very much for your interest in the Developer Program for PlayStation Suite (PS Suite). The Developer Program for PS Suite will provide content developers PlayStation Suite SDK (PS Suite SDK), a set of development tools and software libraries.
We will release the open beta version of PS Suite SDK to content developers in April 2012 and the official version later this year. Contents developed with the official version of PS Suite SDK will be distributed through PlayStation Store and can be enjoyed on PlayStation Certified devices, as well as PlayStation Vita.

67w ago - Today Designer, Producer and Community Manager Peter Bartholow of Reverge Labs has posted up a developer diary video below showcasing the feature-rich PSN fighter Skullgirls.
To quote: Previously on the PlayStation.Blog, I introduced you to Skullgirls' story and characters and discussed its unique gameplay systems. Today, with the game racing towards completion, I'm here to shed a little more light on the game's features.
Even though Skullgirls is a downloadable game for PSN, we've got a feature set consistent with a full-priced fighter.
• Story Mode
• Arcade Mode
• Practice Room
• Ranked and Unranked Online Play
• Custom Soundtracks
• PS3-exclusive Trophies
The world of Skullgirls is vast and full of colorful characters well beyond the eight playable characters we'll have in the game. These characters will show up throughout the characters' stories, which are told with a series of short vignettes, and are told with over 200 pieces of unique art, character portraits and new music.
Check out our new Story mode trailer above, which features Skullgirls' awesome attract mode and glimpses at some of the characters' stories.
68w ago - Following up on his status update for the PS3 4.0 Homebrew Enabler (HEN), today Sony PlayStation 3 hacker KaKaRoToKS has explained how the ECDSA algorithm works.
To quote: To popular demand, I have decided to try and explain how the ECDSA algorithm works. I've been struggling a bit to understand it properly and while I found a lot of documentation about it, I haven't really found any "ECDSA for newbies" anywhere.
So I thought it would be good to explain in simple terms how it works so others can learn from my research. I have found some websites that explain the basic principles but nowhere near enough to actually understand it, others that explains things without any basics, making it incomprehensible, and others that go way too deep into the the mathematics behind it.
ECDSA stands for "Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm", it's used to create a digital signature of data (a file for example) in order to allow you to verify its authenticity without compromising its security. Think of it like a real signature, you can recognize someone's signature, but you can't forge it without others knowing.
The ECDSA algorithm is basically all about mathematics.....
