PS3 Home (Closed) BETA Patch v0.9.4.2 coming June 25th

400°
326w ago - PlayStation®Home closed BETA version v0.9.4.2: Welcome to the latest update to PlayStation®Home closed BETA which will be available from Wednesday 25th June.

Below you'll find information on all the changes and additions but we would also like to tell you about our plans for the next few weeks as we are preparing PS®Home for a larger audience and another change will happen shortly.

On about the 10th July we will be moving PS@Home to what will be its long term home and this will entail a new release of this code for you to download. This will also remove all your save data for which we apologise, but this will be the last time that happens and we will also be then setup to expand the beta soon after.

We will confirm dates for this next change shortly but now its time to talk you through the changes to PS@Home in v0.9.4.2

Patching
The first item we need to mention is our new patching system. When the patch is released the first time you connect you will be prompted to get the latest files as normal. If you decline the patch and then still try to log on to PS®Home it will crash. The new patching system is really built for v0.9.4.2 upwards and its compatibility with 0.8.6 is limited.

Targeting system
What your character targets when looking around is now...
 

Metal Gear Solid 4: Best game ever on PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii?

300°
326w ago - Reviewers have said Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is one of the best video games ever made, and that includes this-gen systems such as PS3 and Xbox 360 all the way back to NES.

High praises are given by the big three industry review giants: Gamespot, IGN and Gamepro. These reviewers have been in the industry for over 22 years. Practically most of us grew up reading their reviews.

These review sites are no slouch, especially IGN and Gamespot with their very strict 10 point scale. IGN has only 15 some games that have ever received a perfect score of a 10. They define only a game that is revolutionary or truly defines a genre deserves a perfect score such as Metal Gear Solid 4.

Gamespot is known to be even more strict in their scoring, only giving five games in their entire history back to 1996 a perfect 10. With the addition of Metal Gear Solid 4, that makes it a total of six games in their history of deserving a perfect score.

Gamespot and IGN both rate Metal Gear Solid 4 above other blockbuster games such as the Orange Box or Halo 3 which both received a 9.5.

IGN: "Not only does it sum up the full franchise of Metal Gear, its depth and its complexity, coupled with its technical prowess, make it one of the best games of the year and, indeed, one of the best...
 

Report: PS3 Sales Rising, Xbox 360 Headed Down

200°
326w ago - The future of the current generation of consoles is in a flux, but sales of the PlayStation 3 are seen as rising, while the Xbox 360 is "headed down."

According to Christopher Null of Yahoo! Tech, the argument that Grand Theft Auto IV will be lucky to sell a little over half of what Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas sold in 2004, cost $100 million to develop, and has failed to boost sales of consoles doesn't mean next-gen gaming has hit a wall.

"At $60 a pop, GTA IV is poised to rake in a solid $720 million in sales, at least," Null said. "If GTA IV had been a movie production, it'd be an unmitigated smash hit."

There are also countless reasons to some of the weakness in the current console market, he said.

"Front and center is a sour economy and an industry that still expects consumers to pay a minimum of $400 for a PlayStation 3. But PS3 sales are rising (and will continue to do so as prices fall). Xbox 360 sales are headed down. And of course, the Wii is a success story that no one can contest."

"The future of this generation of consoles is in flux, but there still seems to be plenty of activity in an industry that's now worth some $10 billion," he said.
 

PSPCAP32: Amstrad CPC Emulator for PSP v1.4.1 out!

50°
326w ago - Zx-81 has updated his 8-bit Amstrad CPC emulator known as PSPCAP32 today. The emulator is a direct port of Ulrich Doewich's Caprice32, originally written for Windows and Unix, albeit with various PSP specific enhancements.

In addition to a bug fix regarding CRTC emulation, version 1.4.1 adds support for two virtual drives, allowing users to mount the Amstrad-compatible SymbOS on one, while storing application and game disks on the other.

Download: PSPCAP32 v1.4.1 for CFW 3.X / PSPCAP32 v1.4.1 for FW 1.5

Changelog:

* Bug fix in CRTC emulation (games such as Prehistorik II couldn't be launched previously)

* Two drives (A & B) are now supported, but only drive A can be used to automatically start a game. It might be useful with SymbOS to put the OS disk on drive 'A:' and application disk on 'B:'
 

Prince of Persia devs planned something special for PS3 owners

250°
326w ago - You may or may not be aware that there's a vote taking place on the official Prince of Persia Web site. This poll allows people to pick one of three Xbox 360 achievements for the final game.

Not much use to PS3 owners, but Ubisoft has done its best to keep us sweet. The poll itself states that PS3 fans need not take umbrage and that they have "planned something special" for us too.

Whether this will have anything to do with the upcoming trophies for the game, or something else entirely, there's no real indication.

Needless to say, however, we're looking forward to seeing whatever it is Ubisoft comes up with. What can we say, we love surprises!
