Kermit aims to deliver PC-assisted real time debugging facilities similar to what is offered by the DTL-T10000 kit (Playstation 2 TOOL) but on a retail PS2 console.
Kermit has partial DECI2 support and this feature is still being worked on. Expect more mesmerizing features to come.

Kermit communicates with the PC through either full duplex EE-SIO (Mr.Brown's EE-SIO cable) or through iLINK (IEE 1394).

192w ago - SCEE European Product Manager Rob Rutter has announced news today of a SingStar Online Battle Mode and PS3 Beta coming soon.
To quote: I'm really pleased to be able to let you know about a great new gameplay feature coming soon to SingStar in the June update.
For the first time, you'll be able to take part in Online Battles against your friends in SingStar. When competing in an Online Battle, you'll send an invite to one of your PSN friends, match songs (you both need to own a song to play it) - pick-up the mic and in true MC style 'let battle commence'.
When playing, you can view your opponent's score live, and see them playing via PlayStation Eye.
As this is a new feature for SingStar, the team needs to test out the gameplay with real players, and this is where you come in! We're running a Closed Beta for our most dedicated SingStar players to come and help us test out new features and upgrades to the game. If you're already a SingStar player aged over 18 with a European PSN account, have the game, mics and an online-enabled PS3, we need your help!
