PSPlorer v1.5 File Manager with WiFi Connectivity released!

100°
330w ago - pspZorba has updated PSPlorer today, an all-in-one file management utility for PSP that allows users to browse the directory tree of their memory stick or the PSP's flash memory.

Now at version 1.5, the application allows users to transfer files and folders across multiple PSP units via standard WiFi connection. In addition to multi-language support, other notable enhancements include the ability to extract EBOOT files and modify the application's colors by editing a configuration file.

Download: PSPlorer v1.5 File Manager

Changelog:

* File and directory transfer from PSP to PSP via WiFi (utilizing a wireless access point). If behind a router, you will need to use port forwarding (the port used by PSPlorer can be modified by editing the config file PSPlorer.txt which is generated at the first run)
* EBOOT file extraction.
* PSPlorer now supports multi-languages. To add additional languages, create a new text document and translate the included english.txt file, line by line. Once finished, place the name of the file next to the tag [langiageFileName], which can be found in the PSPlorer.txt configuration file.
* Application colors and WiFi port can be changed in the PSPlorer.txt...
 

PS3 Home BETA Update v0.8.6 includes Media & Events Space

50°
330w ago - It seems Home has updated to v0.8.6 with a new space... supposedly a Media and Events space. My thought would be more along the lines of giving the Home testers trailers instead of fixing the launch of a game from Home. Sadly, the article linked above had to remove the new images due to a copyright issue.

To quote: A tipster who choses to remain anonymous sent us in these new screenshots of a new update to the Home closed BETA. The BETA is now at v0.8.6.

The new space is called the Media and Events Space and it seems to be a harness for all PLAYSTATION related events.

The update also came with a new survey asking questions such as your thoughts on the new space, it's presentation area, your opinion on the photos and video in the gallery, and what not.

They want to know if you would like to see more events similar to PlayStation Day, what kind of content you want to see in the Media & Events Space to make your next visit more compelling, etc.
 

Devil May Cry 5 on Capcom's mind, due to Devil May Cry 4 sales

50°
330w ago - Devil May Cry 4 producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi said back at E3 2007 that he wanted to make Devil May Cry 5 if Capcom let him.

This week Capcom president Haruhiro Tsujimoto announced in a press release that Capcom's fiscal year 2008 sales increased to over 83 billion Yen ($806 million), in part thanks to Devil May Cry 4's record sales of over 2 million units worldwide since its early February 2008 release, making it the fastest selling Devil May Cry game so far and taking the entire series from 7 to 9 million sold.

It now seems all but certain Capcom wants a sequel with Mr. Tsujimoto closing off the PR by saying "We hope to continue meeting and exceeding the expectations of gamers with our dedication to developing solid titles for the best gaming platforms available."

Watch the full GameTrailers interview on video:





To quote Capcom producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi's words from last year: "Continuing the storyline is always possible. However, we do work under a corporate system, so unless Capcom gives us the green light to go ahead and continue on with releasing Devil May Cry 5, 6, 11, whatnot. It's totally up to them.

However, personally I would like to continue with Devil May Cry and create more and...

330w ago - Well, it's an SHA1 exercise of mine more than a useful tool, by the way I like to share it anyway:

Download: PS3 PUP Extractor v1.00 / PS3 PUP Extractor v1.00 [Mirror]

It extracts a Sony Update PUP file in a created pupname.EXT dir, and creates a logfile with useful information such as calculated SHA1 and Sony hashes.

Flowchart: A PS3 Game's Flow of Execution; PS3's Base AIX!

50°
330w ago - As we promised earlier this week, we are going to explain a PS3 game's boot process, as well as explain why the PARAM.SFO is so important.

The Flowchart in the image attached below explains a PS3 game's startup procedure from insertion to its execution.

Most of it is self-explanatory upon viewing the chart, however, there are a few notes. Any Retail SELF on a Blu-ray disc is flagged so it can only be decrypted and executed from the disc, and nowhere else.

Furthermore, the PARAM.SFO is also of importance... Upon insertion, the PS3 reads the Title ID of the disc in the PARAM.SFO and inserts it into the DB. Once the game is executed and decrypted, the Title ID is checked yet again to make sure it matches. If it does not (think a disc swap), the PS3 will silently error, and return to XMB.

In a final note, our PS3 Devs have been digging through numerous documents and patents, and came to the conclusion that the PS3 uses AIX (Advanced Interactive eXecutive) as a base! See Wikipedia for more details on the format.

Later this weekend, we will have more details and a video for those interested on how to run some PS3 games on a Debug/TEST PS3 from an SD card! As most are aware, PS3 games aren't designed to...
