PS3 Firmware Update 2.43 Released; Mandatory in Japan Only!

300°
318w ago - To quote Al De Leon (PR Manager, SCEA) via PS Blog:

Hi, everyone, I wanted to give you a heads up about PS3 firmware update (v2.43). Unlike previous updates, firmware v2.43 is specific to the Japan region, and only PS3 users there will be required to install the update. PS3 users in all other regions will not be prompted to download v2.43. However, if you manually initiate a firmware update by clicking on "System Update" under the XMB's Settings icon, the v2.43 update will be available, regardless of where you are located.

Download: PS3 Firmware 2.43 (US) / PS3 Firmware 2.43 (EU)

Users outside of Japan do not need to perform this update if your PS3 system software is on version v2.41 or later. However if you do perform the update, it will not cause any issues with your system or add any new functionality.
 

Metroid Prime Devs Eye XBox 360 and PS3 for Future Games

50°
318w ago - Three key devs behind Nintendo's Metroid Prime series have formed a new studio called Armature, under the publishing flag of Electronic Arts.

What does that mean for us gamers, exactly? It means the prime (hah) talents behind Metroid are now free to develop games for non-Nintendo platforms.

The devs heading Armature Studios - Mark Pacini, Todd Keller and Jack Matthews, (who were the former Game Director, Art Director, and Principal Tech Engineer of the Metroid franchise, respectively) - have expressed interest in the PS3 and 360. Says Pacini:

From my stand point, I've never worked on any other console. I've always made games for Nintendo. I'm reinvigorated. I'm really excited about what other opportunities are out there. How can we use Xbox Live? How can we use the power of the PS3?

I think it really opens it up. I'm not saying it was by any means restrictive working for Nintendo. We had this palette to work on, the Wii and the DS, but now we have everything.

Personally I'm looking forward to see what they have in store for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. Not that I don't think the Wii is a capable platform, but it lacks the processing power its competition has. I'd like to see what the devs can do with that extra power.

318w ago - Weltall has updated CWCheat today, from his e-mail:

Here it is a new version of cwcheat: 0.2.2 REV.D

This release is primarly centered on optimizations which allowed to reduce the binaries of about ~15kb. Additionally there were some fixes in the check of the fw version for the sony msfatmod bug, a function which shows when a defined adress changes (check the cheat search menu) and command line support for the pointer searcher.

Activision CEO Expects at least 8 Years out of the PS3

50°
318w ago - During the Activision Blizzard Analyst Day, CEO Robert Kotick expressed his expectations that the PS3 will last at least eight years.

Since Activision Blizzard is now "largest payer of royalties to the first-parties of any third-party company," the CEO believes the company is "starting to influence hardware design."

When is that going to happen, you ask? "I think there's a long life ahead of us, we're in year eight of PlayStation 2 and when you look at PlayStation 3 technically we're likely to see at least eight years' success."

We've heard enough from Sony executives who chant the PS3's expected 10 year life-cycle like a mantra, so it is refreshing to hear someone from outside the company who has similar confidence in our favorite console.

Sighted today in Belmont, CA!

Oh, and because my wording might've been a bit confusing (we didn't *practice* this, we just walked in!), you will of course be able to purchase WipEout HD normally via the PLAYSTATION Store.

Now, there's another option as well.
