PSP Official Firmware v4.05 Update is Coming Soon

50°
337w ago - As quoted from Eric Lempel from the PlayStation Blog:

"I wanted to give a quick heads up to everyone that a new PSP firmware update, v4.05, will be released soon. We know that more and more of you are listening to music on your PSP, and this update will add new visualizers for music playback, among other features. Enjoy!"

These music player visualisations sound like good fun, not too sure what he means by 'among other features' though perhaps some more PS3 PSP connectivity or access to the Playstation Store, or just the usual routine extra security/stability issues.

Hopefully the guys at M33 will be able to work their magic soon with this latest firmware update upon its release.

The PS2 Controller that gets Tired as your Character gets Tired

50°
337w ago - Near Future Laboratory has put some information on their analog version of a PS2 controller for the PSX project online recently.

This is the one that slows the analog part of the controller down over time, so that when you play a title like Katamari Damacy the Prince will get tired. A lot more details are available linked above.

To quote in part: So, this is my analog version of a playful Playstation 2 controller for the PSX project – the one that slows the analog part of the controller down over time so, you know.. when I'm playing Katamari Damacy it's a bit more realistic that the Prince gets tired or during GTA, my guy actually gets tired from running away from liquor store heists and stuff.

I'm looking at two approaches. The first is digital – basically intercepting and modifying the communication between the console and the controller. (I've described the protocol, and there's lots of great, hard-gained information out and about describing how it works.)

This second, is a more expeditious design. Basically, I tap right into the PSX controller, putting a microcontroller in between the analog control joysticks and the little FPGA or whatever it is that senses the analog control joysticks.

So, my microcontroller determines where the control sticks...
 

PS3 BioShock Box Art Sports Home Logo

100°
337w ago - Update: The Official Web site of Digital Extremes, better known as the developer who brought us Dark Sector but who are also helping in the BioShock port, displays the very same box art. This must at least be confirmation that Home will be out before BioShock releases in October.

On Monday, SpikeTV are set to reveal BioShock PS3 goodness, making us unconventionally excited about what most would call a "port." But hey, one of last year's most critically acclaimed games is meeting an entirely new audience. A glance at the box art reveals another reason for PS3 owners to get excited.

On his very own blog, Geoff Keighly hints at what will be in store for BioShock fans this Monday;

Another game set to debut on the show is BioShock PLAYSTATION 3. Now I know what you're thinking...'why are you guys making a big deal out of a port?' Well I can't spoil the surprise just yet, but let me tell you there is way more to this game than you might think. There have been hints about some "exclusive features" in the game and on Monday night I'll finally reveal the details on Spike - and of course show you the first real gameplay footage from the PS3 version.

So what could this exclusive content be? For a start we know...

337w ago - In Japan, they're already out. In Europe, they're on their way...

But what of America's line of budget, re-released PS3 games? Well, they're also on their way.

Here's a first look at the Greatest Hits Line's initial run of titles, lifted from a new K-Mart entertainment catalogue.

Only three titles are pictured (the rest being PSP games), but those games are clearly MotorStorm, Resistance and Warhawk.
