Launch Java Homebrew from the PS3 XMB; Not an Exploit!

50°
336w ago - Tmaster let us know at the link above that silenoz has found a way to run simple Java games on the PS3 with the BD-J (Blu-ray Disc Java) functionality.

To quote silenoz: I've managed to launch a simple Java game on Game OS, with the BD-J functionality, thanks to the HDCookBook project. You just need to copy some files on a USB key and you're good to go.

Steps to launch Blaster Bunny, pictured below, are as follows:

1) Download it HERE and UnZip it.
2) Copy it to the root of a USB/Flash drive.
3) Go to the device in the video menu and launch "AVCHD".
4) Go to BONUS and click GAME to launch Blaster Bunny.

It has also been confirmed that this method has been working on all PS3's regardless of Firmware and region, including 2.41 apparently, and it's likely to work for other Java Virtual Machine games.

Finally, we'd like to clarify to PS3 newbies that this is not an exploit nor will it lead to non-Java PS3 homebrew, etc as CJPC detailed HERE... anyone stating otherwise is completely clueless!

336w ago - Bushing wrote an open letter to Nintendo on his site (linked above) stating: As part of our efforts to understand how the Wii works, we believe we have found a security issue that could allow pirated Wii games to be played on an unmodified Wii console.

I would like to speak to an engineer about this – please have one contact me at bushing (at) gmail.com.

P.S. Sorry for posting this publicly – I tried emailing you three times and never received a response. I am trying to follow the model set forth in http://www.wiretrip.net/rfp/policy.html, so your timely response would be appreciated.

In related news, according to an interview with Marcan posted on the Spanish site ElOtroLado, a Custom Firmware for the Wii is currently in the works.

Bushing also recently commented on IOS hacks as well as svpe on his blog. Cool news indeed for Wii console owners!

Tretton: Sony Considering PSP with Hard Drive

400°
336w ago - According to Jack Tretton, Sony is considering a PSP with a hard drive. Tretton reportedly said that "with the recently announced ability to purchase movies on a PlayStation 3 and move them over to a PlayStation Portable, and as the cost of memory continues to drop, the chance that a new PlayStation Portable would include some sort of internal storage option is becoming increasingly likely."

To quote: Sony has thought about and continues to play around with the idea of building a PlayStation Portable with a built in hard drive or internal memory, Jack Tretton, president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment of America, said this morning at a gather of game writers.

"I think we definitely thought about it," he said. "I think that's the trend moving forward."

With the recently announced ability to purchase movies on a PlayStation 3 and move them over to a PlayStation Portable, and as the cost of memory continues to drop, the chance that a new PlayStation Portable would include some sort of internal storage option is becoming increasingly likely, Tretton said.
 

Sony adds XMB to its new range of Vaio Laptops

50°
336w ago - Sony has added the XMB to its Vaio FW series of Vaio laptops. The laptops also allow the connection or creation of a DNLA server, which the PS3 or PSP can connect to.

To quote: Sony has decided to add the Xross Media Bar (XMB) that has proved so successful in its PlayStation 3 to its new range of Vaio laptops.

The Vaio FW series features Vaio Media+ software, which uses the 'move along, scroll up and down' functionality seen in both the PS3 and the PSP.

Sony clearly believes bringing this kind of synergy to its devices will help create the 'digital living room' all the major brands are gunning for.

The Vaio FW series also allows connection or creation of a DNLA server, which the PS3 or PSP can connect to.

Sony will also bring the same system to future Bravia TVs as it aims to add more functionality to the goggle box too.
