Discovery: Install Debug Firmware on a Retail PS3 system

50°
345w ago - XVISTAMAN2005 has discovered a method HERE which allows Retail PS3 console owners to install PS3 Debug Firmware on them... however, before considering attempting this PS3 "HDD Swap" be sure to read below.

Upon following the instructions your retail PS3 console will update to a partial Debug/Test console. Partial is stated because upon doing it the PS3 will possess what is pictured below, specifically non-functioning Debug options.

Debug PKG files won't install, port 1000 is open but you can't connect to it, and the PS3 no longer plays Blu-ray movies. Additionally, the Sony SELF Check disc does not show under game while inserted, however it shows under the other menus as only a "Data Disc" like all burned discs do on retail (not Debug/Test) PS3 consoles.

The good news is it's possible to update to a higher retail Firmware which restores the Blu-ray movie playback functionality, however, the bad news is some...

Insider leaks potential PS3 Firmware 2.40 details

250°
345w ago - All of the following information has come from an insider I, Sev1512, am in contact with and everything isn't 'set in stone'. Things can change a lot, especially when it involves Sony.

If any of the information is wrong, its because plans have changed and not because it was made up.

PS3 Firmware 2.40 should include:

- Access your XMB chat features from any game.
- 2D trophies from the XMB where 70% of current titles will support them straight away.
- Video Coding and groundwork for the Movie Store (Out Sept)

My insider notes however that not all of the above will definitely make it before Metal Gear Solid comes out.

Oh, and Online Co-op for Super Stardust HD is in the works.
 

End of Year Exclusives: Sony Vs Microsoft

50°
345w ago - Last year you'll have no arguments that Microsoft's better games line up prevailed over Sony's. You could forgiven Sony and its developers for not having enough time to get used to the new hardware or it could have been that Microsoft just crammed all their five star quality titles into a few months.

Whatever the reason, it leaves 2008 to be more important. With now both Sony and Microsoft preparing great looking line ups for the end of the year. We take a look to find out who's line up looks better on paper.

Sony's heavy hitters are Killzone 2, Resistance 2 & Little Big Planet and to be honest that sounds like enough to fight off anything Microsoft have as Sony are releasing what should be 3 fantastic games.

Although Microsoft will be serving up some Gears of War 2, Fable 2 & Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise to combat Sony's onslaught. At the recent industry press events we got a truck load of information about what both company's will be offering come Christmas time.

Microsoft

Microsoft don't exactly have the massive line up they've had in previous years but come with a few hotly anticipated games. Gears of War 2 is already looking like a suitable follow up to, arguably 2006's Game of the Year. While titles like Viva Pinata & Banjo Kazooie are...
