PSPlorer v1.4 File Management Application for PSP out!

342w ago - pspZorba has released an update to PSPlorer, a file management utility for PSP that allows users to browse the directory tree of their memory stick or the PSP's flash memory.

Additional application features include a built-in hex-editor and ad-hoc support for transferring files and folders between two PSP units.

Download: PSPlorer v1.4

New to version 1.4 is the ability to backup an inserted UMD in CSO format, as well as convert already dumped ISO files to CSO.


* UMD backup in CSO format
* File conversion from ISO to CSO
* Transfer directories in ADHOC mode
* File and directory properties change (access right, creation/update/access dates) (WELL it's not really new it was present in the homebrew but not in the doc)
* A single bug correction in the default value of the OSK virtual keyboard. The effect of the bug was that sometimes strange extra characters could be seen in the default value.

Rockstar working around the clock to fix GTA IV freezing issues

342w ago - A Rockstar customer service representative has issued the following statement regarding the freezing issues PS3 owners of GTA IV have experienced:

"A patch is being worked on around the clock to address the issues. It's bound to be. That's how they address this sort of thing. It is being worked on. We're looking into it. You will hear from us if a patch is released. A patch is usually the way it's been done."

The rep also said that they have not been told what is causing the game to freeze and that they are "devoid of information at the moment".

To quote: We were also given some tips on how to combat the freezing experienced on the PS3 version of the game, including:

Completely remove the game from the system but leave saves behind.

Turn the console off for 15 minutes without any cables plugged in, then turn it on and try again.

Play without access to the Internet.

Turn off the auto save function and the controller vibration setting.

Super Stardust HD: Most Graphically Impressive PS3 Game

342w ago - Unless you've downloaded the expansion pack to the downloadable PS3 twin-stick shooter "Super Stardust HD," you will have a hard time convincing me that it's not the most graphically-impressive game on Sony's machine.

And, yes, I've played "GTA IV." I've seen "Killzone 2." But nothing quite blows me away like a level of Endless on the $5 "SSHD" expansion called "Solo Pack."

What exactly have the game's Finnish developers at Housemarque accomplished?

They've doubled the base game's output of 10,000 objects on the screen.
They believe they've almost maxed the PS3 graphics chip.
And now they're thinking about making music-based levels and revealing to Multiplayer other expansions they have in the works.
Read on for more on all of that, from a developer that is pushing the PS3 to impressive lengths ...

Multiplayer: The new add-on for "SSHD" has produced the most dazzling display of action on my TV screen – just in the sheer volume of explosions and activity – that I have ever seen. In terms of numerical performance, what exactly are you guys getting out of the PS3 with this add-on? And can you compare the amount of stuff on the screen in, say, a mode of Endless, with the amount of stuff in the most frenzied levels...
