In related news, Marcan has Tweeted a picture (below) stating, to quote: "proof that RSX 3D works, time to pester the nouveau guys to figure out how we can use it sanely "

From his Blog (linked above): OK I'm back again with one of my simple apps. I'm lazy and I like one button solutions. I have created a new loader based on Hermes loader.

It does everything almost the same, but you don't have to go through the extra step of putting the bins...

To quote from his blog (linked above): "I have started a new project I am calling it DVD ENABLER.

This will let you play Decrypted VOB files. Its simple and straight to the point, and easily able to reset the DVD drive.

1) You will need to dump your VOB files. (I am working on Ubuntu with libdvdcss + vobcopy)
in ubuntu you will need to do the run the following commands

$ sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh

$ sudo apt-get install vobcopy

2) Now with vobcopy installed run this command

$ vobcopy ~/Videos/XXX/

replace XXX with the movies name.

3) Now you need to FTP those VOB files to

/dev/hdd0/DVDS/XXX/

replace XXX with the movies name.

for example Hitman unrated looks like this

/dev/hdd0/DVDS/Hitman/HITMAN_UNRATED1-1.vob

/dev/hdd0/DVDS/Hitman/HITMAN_UNRATED1-2.vob

182w ago - Just over a week ago we announced news of Killzone 3 PS3 Beta invites going out, and today some fresh video footage of Mech Gameplay and more has surfaced!

To quote from GamersMint.com (linked above):

"We have more than 11 minutes of Killzone 3 BETA gameplay and we are at a loss of words on how to describe it... simply put, it's AWESOME!

The footage shows you wrecking havoc upon your enemies and is a sheer delight to watch.

Killzone 3 releases in Febuary 2011, exclusive to the PS3."

GamingBolt.com did comment on some bugs in the KZ3 PS3 Beta though, to quote:

"Since it's a BETA, some bugs have made their presence felt as well. Drop in framerates being a major one, stuff like unable to walk up stairs (0.25), enemies running through you while you try and melee them (1.00) and delay in killing enemies (final few seconds)."
