500°
320w ago - mopx0 has installed Windows Vista 32 bit on the PS3, the whole process takes a huge amount of time and the end result is that the emulation runs very slow as evidenced by the fact it takes nearly 25 minutes to boot to the start menu.

To quote: It's a 100% PS3 based emulation of Microsoft Windows Vista. Its super slow, but it works.

Tutorial: Install Qemu 0.9.1

- Install Vista on your Computer using Qemu and Bochs Bios Rev 1.171 by sshwarts
- Vlite helps speed the install up, Vista's install may take a day or so





- Bochs Bios Revision 1.171 can be found here (http://bochs.cvs.sourceforge.net/bochs/bochs/bios/BIOS-bochs-latest?view=log&pathrev=MAIN)
- You may also need to add this command "-cpu pentium3" for qemu to work right
- Copy the .IMG to your PS3's HDD
- Open Terminal where the Vista IMG is located
- Type qemu -hda vista.img -m 256 -L "Location to Rev 1.171, Drag n Drop" -cpu pentium3
- The -cpu pentium3 option makes it so it doesn't BSOD with error code 7F

It will take about 25 min to fully boot (network connection and audio show up).

320w ago - Streaming software by StreamMyGame, that enables the latest PC games to be played on the PlayStation 3, now enables you to play PC games with your SIXAXIS controller.

The new StreamMyGame PlayStation 3 player includes a USB and Bluetooth pairing tool that enables the SIXAXIS to be used via cable or wirelessly.

"Both our new StreamMyGame PS3 player and the Bluetooth tool install automatically, just download and double click" said Richard Faria, StreamMyGames CEO. "In addition to streaming games from your local PC, the new player enables games to be streamed from remote PCs or PC servers housed in ISP exchanges".





Also included is a new configuration tool enabling gamers to map each SIXAXIS button and thumb controller to a different keyboard key and mouse axis so gamers can create map settings that suit their preferred gameplay.

"The new player works with Yellow Dog Linux Version 6 which is now really easy to install and recommended by Sony," said Richard. "We have included full details on our website of where to download YDL6, how to record it to DVD and how to install it".

Xbox 360 to deliver the finishing blow to the PS2?

50°
320w ago - Recent evidence has shed light that the Xbox360 arcade is to have a price cut down to £100/$199.99. It is comonly claimed that the £100 price tag is when a console realy takes off, indicating that the Xbox 360 will once again see the dominance it saw prior to the launch of the Wii.

The Wii is currently dominating at the price of £180, despite the Xbox360 arcade being around £160 there hasn't been a significant market shift. However now that the arcade is being reduced to £100 we will see a huge difference; we can expect the other model to follow suit. The 20GB being bought down to £160 and the 60GB coming in at £180.

These price cuts will mean that gamers who previouly set out after Wiis may instead pick up a £100 arcade and games instead of simply the Wii. However we will also see parents contribute, if they are aware their son/daughter is into video games then the arcade is the perfect present for christmas or birthdays.

However it will also be be only £10 dearer than the PS2, which may finally kill off the final of the last gen consoles. The PS2 still acounts for a large amount of Sonys income and is still selling fast due to its low price tag, with a nex-gen console to rival it then the PS2 may not live for much longer.

Is 2009 the age of the Xbox 360 where we will...
 

IBM's Peter Seebach: PS3 is more than a Toy

250°
320w ago - In an article at IBM.com (linked above) titled 'PS3 is more than a Toy', Peter Seebach talks us through how to tweak Linux for the best possible performance on the PS3.

To quote: The Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) runs Linux, but getting it to run well requires some tweaking. In this article, first in a series, Peter Seebach introduces the features and benefits of PS3 Linux, and explains some of the issues that might benefit from a bit of tweaking.

When Sony first announced that the PlayStation 3 would be able to run Linux natively, a great deal of excitement ensued. Early on, it was a bit of a challenge to get Linux natively installed. The supported installer ran a custom script that hand-mangled a Fedora Core 5 or 6 install DVD into a runnable system with a special PS3 kernel. People put in hours and hours of effort to get other systems, such as Ubuntu, working. Terrasoft's Yellow Dog Linux, with an actual graphical installer that ran on the PS3, was the king of the hill.

Time has passed, and a great deal has changed. Fedora 7 installs on the PS3 out of the box, with the most challenging parts being selecting the PS3 storage driver so it can find the install DVD, and remembering to specify a video mode on the initial install command line so you'll be able to see the installer.
 

Fullspeed Dreamcast Emulation on PSP Possible, No Promises

50°
320w ago - Drk||Raziel, developer of Dreamcast emulator NullDC, has issued a clarification statement in regards to the recently unveiled PSP port.

First off, he notes that due to RAM constraints, the PSP port of NullDC will be compatible with Slim units, which house 64MB RAM compared to 32MB on the previous hardware revision.

Furthermore, the author explicitly mentions that he is not making any promises concerning the speed of the emulator, only that he will attempt to get it running as fast as possible.

Certainly, we're excited over the prospect of Dreamcast emulation on PSP, but as with the PSP version of StrmnNrmn's N64 emulator Daedalus, don't expect games to run at a playable speed any time soon.
