Exclusive Info on the New PS3 Controller unveiled!

325w ago - Sev1512 of PlayStationLifeStyle writes: It has been brought to my attention that PlayStation Underground held a secret focus group earlier this year.

A small group of PS3 owners were sent to a facility in [undisclosed location], California to test a new PlayStation product in development.

Once inside the testing facility, these PS3 owners were shown a mini-tripod that stood about 12 inches high. and what looked like 4 black PS3 "wiimotes". Well they were essentially "wiimotes" for the PS3, but didn't need a "nunchuck" attachment. I will refer to them as "PS3motes" for now on.

You can have up to 4 of these "PS3motes" connected at one time. A demonstrator at this focus group was there showing off the "PS3motes" capabilities, along with some mini-games to play. The mini games ranged from tennis, to fencing, to a "really really cool" paintball game. The demonstrator even used the "PS3mote" to play "Quake" on his laptop.

The "PS3mote" is said to be incredibly responsive and accurate. When the demonstrator crouched while playing the paintball game, the character on screen did as well.

The biggest concern of the demonstrator was that for these "PS3motes" to work they needed the tripod, which connected to the PS3's USB...

fMSX PSP v3.5.2 Emulator Update released!

325w ago - Uberjack has released a maintenance update to fMSX, an MSX series emulator for the PSP that supports both MSX and MSX2 cartridge files.

Previous versions of the emulator contained two mislabeled configuration settings. In the updated release, both MSX Music and MSX Audio now correctly refer to FMPAC/YM2413 and Y8950, respectively.

As such, the author notes that users should make sure that MSX Music is enabled if FMPAC-based titles were previously freezing.

Download: fMSX PSP v3.5.2 for CFW 3.X / fMSX PSP v3.5.2 for FW 1.5

Changelog Version 3.5.2:

- Corrected MSX Music/MSX Audio labeling in System settings
- MSX Music now correctly refers to FMPAC/YM2413 chip; MSX Audio refers to Y8950 chip. If the emulator was previously freezing with FMPAC audio, double-check to make sure MSX Music is enabled (disable MSX Audio to gain some extra speed) and try again.

PS3 In-Game XMB Videos and Trophy Screens revealed!

The first one shows the In-Game XMB being used from a game title screen, and the second video demonstrates it being used during gameplay.

He has also shared some pictures of trophies to further cement the recent In-game XMB, Trophies, In-Game Soundtrack coming in June news.

The videos and pictures were taken from PS3 Test kits with the 2.4 release of the Dev Firmware, given to videogame developers in order to ensure that there are actually trophies available upon release, and that everything is working.


MGS4 Gun Metal Gray PS3 more than a Paint Job, less than 10k

325w ago - Dani, the Administrator at the Konami forums, has clarified a few things about the MGS4 Limited Edition PS3.

The bundle is extremely limited, with "less than 10k (its actually a bit less than that, even)" being made available.

Also, it is not just a paint job it is made from a "different material, which has more of a matte finish and feel as opposed to the standard glossy one."

The DualShock3 controller which comes with it is also Gun Metal Gray like the console.

To quote: Hi - We've been following the threads here about the LE MGS4 PS3 bundle at Konami.com, saw some confusion, and just got approval to clear some stuff up...

First, there seems to be some speculation as to how limited this limited edition MGS4/PS3 bundle is. I can't divulge exact stock numbers, but I can verify that quantities are in the four digits, which means less than 10k (its actually a bit less than that, even). Once that's gone, its gone. Seriously, we don't have any more than that.

Second, some seem to think that the Gun Metal Gray is just a "paint job", which it is not. It is a different material, which has more of a "matte" finish and feel as opposed to the standard "glossy" one.

Also, the bundle comes with a DualShock3 controller which also is Gun Metal...
