322w ago - Miriam has updated the popular CXMB plug-in, originally written by Poisonhzkj, with full support for the recently released 4.01 M33 Custom Firmware.

For those interested, CXMB allows users to safely load non-PTF custom made XMB themes from memory stick, rather than by replacing files on the PSP's flash memory.

Sony announces a Trojan Horse, through PS3 updates

50°
322w ago - Well, they didn't announce one in its current parlance exactly. It's more like the original horse – the one that disgorged the elite Achaeans into Troy. In this case, the Trojan Horse is the PS3 console, and it will be disgorging content. It's not I who made this historical comparison, some analyst did, but I sure wish I had.

The plan was, all along it seems, to roll out the game console and constantly upgrade its capabilities. For example, soon you will be able to get news and weather from your PS3, download feature films, and there will be a photo/movie management app with geotagging and a globe view, not unlike what I saw at the Surface event, but without the (somewhat critical) touchy interface.

Well, I look forward to getting a PS3 one of these days, but they keep making it a sweeter deal so I think I'll just continue to hold off for the moment.

322w ago - Sony upped the ante and changed the game when they expanded their friends list from 50 to 100 recently. Not content to merely keep up with Microsoft's vaunted Live online service, Sony announced another startling addition to the Playstation Network.

XMB in-game? Ability to play music while playing a game? Halo 3? Nope. Even better. Sony announced that in the latest 2.4 firmware update would launch the new Man's Best Friend, Friend's list or the MBFF initiative. What is the MBFF? Why don't we let Sony spokesperson, Angie Shennandough explain.

"While adding additional support for 50 more friends to interact with on PSN, we thought, what about about Man's Best Friend? My circus show poodle, sparkles, is my friend. Why couldn't we allow pets onto PSN, ya know? What about my REAL best friend? The one that I feed, take for walks and play with everyday? Well, we're changing all of that. From now on, you'll have an additional 50 slots to add pets!"

We responded rather curiously to this new "friend's list" and wondered, why pets?

"Well, pets are our friends and we want to know what they're doing at all times, just like our PSN friends, right?" Shennandough explained.

Incredulously she was asked by the press, "Pet's don't...
