Video: New PSP Exploit Surfaces, PS Vita VHBL Port Incoming?

1000°
132w ago - Following up on his PS Vita VHBL Motorstorm Arctic Edge hack from last week, today PlayStation Vita developer wololo has announced news of a new PSP exploit discovered by Xerpi with a demo video below!

To quote: I honestly stopped counting how many PSP "hello world" exploits in PSP games have been announced over the past months, but these exploits are getting a second life now that they symbolize a possibility for homebrews on the PS Vita.

This time it's scener Xerpi who found an exploit, which I haven't confirmed yet, but I should be able to give it a try sometimes this week. Will this lead to a VHBL port/release? First we need to make sure this game is actually available for the Vita. After that, only time will tell, but I'll do my best to help





Congrats, xerpi!

Note: Let me emphasize that I am aware of several psp game exploits being available, and releasing VHBL for them or not is basically up to their authors. I'm of course offering my help to port VHBL (although my free time is limited.

Porting VHBL is relatively easy, but even with some experience, from...

Video: Balancing Control and Combat in Wheels of Destruction

50°
132w ago - Lead Designer Peter Porai-Koshits has posted up a video trailer today showcasing the balancing control and combat in Wheels of Destruction for PS3 below.

To quote: That perfect balance of smooth vehicle control and weapon mastery was always our most difficult and most important task. It's so easy to do them separately:

Here's your car control - drive wherever you want; here's your weapon control - fire at will. However, putting them together is a bit of a puzzle.

At the beginning, our weapons were at a fixed crux to always shoot forward as the car moves. As a result, you could either shoot while at a standstill, or shoot in every direction, when rotating the car or chasing someone. Everything became a merry-go-round where 'A' chased 'B' and shot at him, while 'B' was chasing 'C' who in turn was chasing 'A'.

We knew we needed another approach. The tried-and-true approach is the have the left stick control the vehicle and the right stick control the camera and the direction of weapon fire.

This immediately resulted in lower game speed. It's rather difficult to drive somewhere while watching from the side, or backwards. You're driving into a wall within seconds. Ultimately, everyone ends up standing in their own corner, shooting at everyone....
