117w ago - Recently Sony's Shuhei Yoshidaconfirmed that PlayStation Vita will be region-free, and over the weekend GameSpot (linked above) did an interview with him discussing PS Vita's US / EU launch slated for early next year.
Previously, we reported that PS Vita is scheduled to hit Japan on December 17, 2011.
To quote: "Currently, with the PlayStation 3 and PSP, physical media is released region-free, allowing games published in one country to be played without hassle in another.
However, Sony's digital strategy restricts content to the region in which it is released, with access being determined by the region of a user's PlayStation Network profile.
As announced earlier this week, the PS Vita will launch alongside 26 games in Japan on December 17. Sony expects to release its newest gaming hardware in Europe and North America sometime in early 2012."
117w ago - Today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer DemonHades has shared a demo video of their upcoming JFW DH PS3 CFW (currently slated for release this October 1st) on PlayStation 3 version 3.56 Custom Firmware from the previous v3.41 CFW demos posted.
To quote, roughly translated: Before you're reading something about 360, or PSN not bother reading it
Hello friends, as I told the DH JFW taxes have only worked in 3.41, well now we add the new DH JFW 3.56.
This time new JFW DH can only be installed on a 3.55, 3.56 or a self-update patching part of a hardware flasher (teensy recommend) is the most inexpensive and convenient.
What to do with the DH JFW 3.56 ....
Loading backups-without managers (Multimedia)
What is not so far ....
Once on 3.56 you can not do down due to the new system updates that explain in a while.
You can not use Thegra (so far)
You can only down a flasher, but if you go into factory mode and not get caught and you can go.. we have not touched the QA, but it could be a way out.
No more to thank Alexander jaicrab, Calimba, chickenpox.
1saludo and I do not see this press release websites or ps3crunch eol trolls as at other sites...

117w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America Product Evaluator Nick Suttner has shared a new video today confirming that users should make space in their intergalactic gardens on October 4th for Eufloria which hits PlayStation Network then.
To quote: I know it's been a while since we last spoke, but the Pub Fund group at SCEA has been hard at work on bringing interesting, exclusive content to PSN. Okabu, Papo & Yo, and more clandestine projects are still on the horizon, but today I'm here to drop the launch details for Eufloria - a very different, very special sort of strategy game.
It's tough to distill the concept down to a couple of sentences without doing the experience a huge injustice, but this excellent trailer should give you an idea of the mood and visual direction:
Now take that ethereal aesthetic, and the tingling that you're feeling in your temples, and fold a layer of smartly accessible strategy elements over it. You'll be exploring, conquering and colonizing enemy asteroids without the need for messy tech trees or arcane controls.
It's a rare game that satisfies both ends of the art game/strategy game spectrum, but I think that Eufloria nails it. It's also tunable in either direction - play on the less hectic Chilled...
