134w ago - Sony Marketing Alliances Manager Jill Erb has announced today three ways that fans can win a PS Vita handheld console early from Taco Bell as detailed below.

Guide: Three Ways of Running Your Own Code on PS3

650°
257w ago - Today SKFU has posted a brief guide on three way to run your own code on Sony's PS3 console, as follows:

1. OtherOS

The easiest way to run your own code on the PlayStation 3 is through Linux which you can install as alternative OS. Several restrictions regarding the RSX, but it seems to become better regarding 3D acceleration since the new MESA 3D GL was released with CELL support.

2. BD-Java

A few days ago I reported, that the developers of demonhades.org found out, that BD-Java still works if you correctly burn it on a Blu-Ray disc. With the FreePlay's minimal BD-Java SDK it's quite ok to develop Java for PS3.

3. Flash

Since FW 2.0 till FW 3.0 there was the so called Informationboard. This is a simple .swf file on the HDD and can be replaced with knightsolidus' HDD decryption method. As the informationboard.swf does not run in a sandbox there's a lot possible but sadly it was removed in the actual FW 3.0.
 

Top Five Ways Microsoft's XBox 360 Has Beaten Sony's PS3

278w ago - The war to win the hard-core gamer has been fought bitterly between two giants - Sony the veteran and Microsoft the young upstart. The kid took its beating the first generation.

Sony laughed at him for having the nerve and audacity to compete with the champion. The kid knew it was bested, but he licked his wounds and trained harder. He came back a man, a muscled machine, and showed the old-timer he deserved to be crowned the title.

This is his story:

5) Third Party Exclusives
Exclusives will make and break a console platform. Take the GameCube for example. With high licensing fees and inadequate support, third party software were put out there to die and so the third party support dried up too. Consequently GameCube died shortly after.

On the flip-side, PS2 won the console war on the strength of its third party support. Devil May Cry, Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy, and Tekken were all system-selling games for PS2. Now how many of those franchises has Sony been able to retain for the PS3? Looks like only Metal Gear.

Microsoft made a heavy investment to lure third party developers into the 360 camp. By launching their system a year ahead of PS3, the 360 was able to give developers more time to acclimate to an already familiar-looking platform architecture....
 

Twenty Ways to Make Metal Gear Solid 5 for PS3 Successful

250°
285w ago - The following are twenty mostly detailed points. Some are ideas Kojima Productions should do with the next Metal Gear; some are things Kojima Productions should not do. Some of these they would never even consider doing, but have been included just for completion's sake.

1. Cut down on the story. I've loved the story throughout the Metal Gear series. It's fairly clear, however, that we are all ready for it to be toned down again. It's telling that, when playing Metal Gear for the MSX, I enjoyed not being interrupted by cutscenes. Ever. But that's another extreme. Can we go back to the level of cutscene found in the first Metal Gear Solid, or even the PlayStation 2 titles? Please?

2. Remake a "previous story" from the Metal Gear series. It feels like this one is mentioned all the time, but how awesome would it be? An updated Metal Gear with some story? Why wouldn't you want to fight the Shotmaker or Dirty Duck again? They're fantastic! Zanzibarland would be great fully imaged in 3D. Imagine the chase scene through the jungle, hiding behind trees as you follow the beret. And then making it through the swamp before fighting Running Man. That would actually be really cool.

Sure, some elements would need to be re-jigged, but they're capable of that. And imagine the...
 

Top 10 Ways to Piss Off Gamers on Forums!

50°
319w ago - Nobody paying attention to you in forums? Well worry not. Gamers World Bangladesh brings you a list of the hot-button topics that is sure to get a surge of comments headed your way, and possibly more than what you bargained for.

1. Brand Loyalty (Equals Fanboyism)

Whatever you do, never say you love [insert favorite console here] instead of the PS3/Xbox 360/Wii/PSP/DS for fear of being branded as a fanboy. You'll be instantly drowned in hate messages from other people defending their PS3/Xbox 360/Wii/PSP/DS (aka other fanboys). I think of fanboyism as brand loyalty. Variations also include ATI vs Nvidia.

2. Microsoft sucks

Anything with Microsoft (or Vista) in the headline and defaming the company is a surefire way to get attention. Who cares if its chairman is the largest donator to charity. So what if almost everyone uses Windows, Microsoft Office and Internet Explorer (although Firefox is gaining). The point is they can't do anything right and makes a great topic to stir up the hornets nest.

3. PC Gaming Is Doomed

The classical way to start a 'heated' discussion. Just kick back and relax while the argument takes off with why PC gaming is doomed/isn't doomed and how a big noob you are for starting the topic in the first place.
