117w ago - A year back we reported news of launching PSP games on a PS3 from Russian hacker GamerSuper, and today PlayStation 3 hacker Snowydew of Gitbrew confirms that PSP games are indeed mountable on PS3 but notes that only some are actually playable.
Below are some relevant Tweets from him on mounting Loco Roco (pictured below) for PSP on the PS3, and as always we will update this article as more details surface:
Yes psp games ARE mountable, but some are not playable. I'll try lumines to see if it works though.
rar the directories if you can and send it to "snowy" on the gitbrew irc, when i wake up i'll have a look
Games to be run on it. Time to look towards the psone classics then, that or lets see if i can mount actual psone games. This shall be fun
The loco roco i used was from a umd, not psn related. From the documentation i've been reading, it would require heavy modification for psp
I need the psn versions sadly , already installed is what i need / specific files that are in the directory.
The reason i say that, is because i own these copies. Hardcopies / psone discs and psn /ps3 installed...
117w ago - Last week we saw JFW DH CFW demonstrating PS3 game backups via TheGrid Plugin which no longer requires a backup manager, and today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer DemonHades has shared a video showcasing the Games and Apps GameBootScreen in JFW DH Custom Firmware.
To quote, roughly translated: As you may remember, back when we launched a game lanzabamos the gameboot PlayStation 3, Sony decided to remove it (not even that), but hey no problem.
In this video you can see games and apps launch this GameBootScreen JFW DH , you will see some failures in the video image positioning, but that in the final version will be finished
Not be copied or reproduced in elotrolado.net or trolls sites.
1saludo and I hope you like demons, and it is becoming less for the publication of JFW JFW DH and DH MA
To quote: The Eskiss game using the EFL (Enlightenment Foundation Libraries) running on a PS3. Smooth framerate at 1080p resolution.
Eskiss is just a simple game like a PoC, I ported it to show you what can be done using the EFL (I love the animations! )
And don't forget, the EFL are the core libraries used by E17, a desktop manager like Gnome or KDE (that's what I use). it's many libraries that can do a lot of things, and have a widget lib (button, sliders, checkbox, etc..) and they should be used in order to create new HB!!
The game can be played with a mouse or with a controller, this video was done using a mouse.
And here's a video for those who didn't try Eskiss yet (yes, I suck at this...
To quote: I bought a second controller and with it I was able to figure out how to get the controls working properly. So that is what I fixed in this update to Sketch Fight (which for the uninformed is a two player fighting game). Nothing else has changed.
In the future I’ll now always be able to test multiplayer PS3 games before releasing them
118w ago - Today the Resistance 3 PS3 patch version 1.02 is available, and the developers at Insomniac Games have shared the update details, as follows:
Patch 1.02 for Resistance 3 is now available worldwide. We apologize for having two large patches this close to launch, but as you know, we've had a lot of issues to address from the Public Beta, and this has created the need for large patches. If you just want to play SP, you can ignore the patches (though there are some small fixes to the campaign) - but to go online, you will need to download them.
We wanted to detail some of the fixes in 1.02 for you. There are A LOT of fixes in this patch, some of which some players may not notice and are not worth detailing, but here are the big ones:
• Players should no longer get into "dead" games that don't operate correctly
• Improvement in framerate/lag
• Matchmaking fixes
• Fewer players floating / clipping through environment
• Fix for freezing/crashing issues if you join a game as it is ending
• Can no longer leave party while in a co-op game (was causing a crash)
• Party fixes dealing with multiple invites, co-op
• Some SFX in St. Louis have been cleaned up
• Broadway map now loads games correctly
• Fixed issues when...
