118w ago - Following up on the initial news, today the E3 Team have made available a video of their E3 Flasher downgrading a PS3 Slim 3.70 Firmware console to version 3.55 without any soldering required.
To quote: E3DIY team announces a successful Slim Downgrade v3.70 to v3.55 with our new E3 FLASHER!
In only FIVE minutes, the whole downgrade progress was completed!
Time is short and operation is very easy, this is because of our exclusive special E3 FLASHER design:
ONE-Button Operation and NOR Flash onboard!
E3 FLASHER compatible all NAND FLASH and NOR FLASH consoles
With SLIM Consoles, no need for any soldering!
But with PHAT Consoles, some soldering will be needed!
In this video there no images of the E3 FLASHER as we need to keep our design under wraps until it is ready for release, I hope everyone understands.
The official version should be released next week, at that time there will be more videos and pictures and everything will be available to the public.

118w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has posted up a PS3 developer diary video today showcasing the Chimera enemy munitions below.
To quote: It's hard to believe that Resistance 3 is coming out next week! It's been an amazing journey for those of us at Insomniac Games, we've spent the last three years ensuring this is our most polished, focused, and consistent entry in the Resistance franchise.
We're very excited to share it with you. As we get close to release, it's time to show you our very last Dev Diary - this one focused on the high-tech weapons created or influenced by the Chimeran invaders.
As you may know by now, the Resistance 3 Multiplayer Beta is winding down on September 4th, but we wanted to get one last blast of testing on our servers, so we've made the beta available to all on the PlayStation Store. We also wanted to acknowledge that while the R3 beta wasn't always smooth sailing, we totally appreciated those of you who helped us test the game and stuck with us through the rough patches.
We've announced a Beta Player Appreciation program - if you download and play a few rounds of the Resistance 3 Beta before it ends on September 4th, you'll receive a couple of cool rewards for the final game....
118w ago - Dyad Creator Shawn McGrath has shared some video footage spotlighting the music and gameplay fusion in Dyad for PlayStation Network today.
To quote: Shawn here again, and I brought along Dyad's composer, David Kanaga.
We're going to talk a bit about Dyad's interactive music system, how it works and what makes it unique. We're also treating you to a free three-song EP consisting of linear mixes of Dyad's interactive music and some new screenshots!
Below is a new gameplay video showcasing one of the later levels in Dyad. Don't worry if it looks too complex! It'll make perfect sense once you've completed the earlier levels.
When you hear the term "interactive music" you might think of "rhythm games" such as Guitar Hero, Rock Band, Frequency, or others of that nature. Dyad's music system is very different from those games. There's no beat matching or imposed rhythm in the game.
The music doesn't dictate play, nor does it judge you. Dyad's music is reactive, meaning it's mixed dynamically on the fly, based on the current game state and how you're interacting with it. Each time you play a level, the music is different – playing Dyad can...
