Custom IOS36 Rev 08 (cIOS v8) Released for Nintendo Wii

50°
302w ago - Waninkoko released an updated version of his Custom IOS for the Nintendo Wii today.

To quote: This is a Custom IOS, an IOS modified to add new features not available in the official IOS. This IOS has been created to be used ONLY with homemade software.

The Custom IOS installs as IOS249 and does not modify any other IOS so it is safe to install.

Changelog:

• Command IOCTL_DI_OFFSET custom (to support multigame).
•Support for custom commands DIP.
•The read command to read D0 now 6x using original disks or modchip.
•System transparent patching error 001/002.
•Fixes and improvements.

This is because the region of the console does not match the region of the menu system.

This can be solved by installing the menu system for the new region of the console (for example, using the Custom IOS Downgrade) or change the region of the console back to the original.

303w ago - Today SEGA and Pyro Studios announced their plan to bring the animated movie Planet 51 to game consoles.

The Planet 51 game will be available in Winter 2009 for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Wii system, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and the Nintendo DS portable handheld system.

Press Release: February 25, 2009 - SEGA Europe, Ltd., SEGA of America, Inc., and Madrid-based Pyro Studios today announced a partnership to create a game based on its upcoming animated film, Planet 51.

Planet 51 is a galactic sized alien adventure comedy from the writer of "Shrek" and "Shrek 2", which revolves around American astronaut Captain Charles "Chuck" Baker who lands on Planet 51, thinking he's the first person to step foot on it.

To his surprise, he finds that this planet is inhabited by little green people who are happily living in a white picket fence world reminiscent of a cheerfully innocent American town circa 1950, and whose only fear is that it will be overrun by alien invaders... like Chuck! With the help of his robot companion "Rover" and his new friend Lem, Chuck must navigate his way through the dazzling, but bewildering, landscape of Planet 51 in order to escape becoming a permanent part of the Planet 51 Alien Invaders Space Museum....

310w ago - Here is a translation of an ongoing project from Spanish developer DemonHades (linked above) courtesy of idone, detailing the PS3 BiOS chip being pulled and starting to be traced as follows:

For some time, we have been talking about the PlayStation 3 BiOS, and up to date there is no public info about the IC which does this job and the way it stores the information.

Here is a quick briefing of what we have done so far (pictures in sequence with the below text, spread across the three images below):

Pic #1: The reference of this IC is CXR713120-202GB.

Pics #2 & #3: Thanks to KnightSolidus we have these photos with the ways of this IC and some notes of connections references with colors.

Pic #4: The PLAYSTATION 3 BIOS is also known as SYSTEM CONTROLLER (SysCon)

Pic #5: As we can see in the image, SYSTEM CONTROLLER uses an SPI interface to communicate with the CELL eeprom, on which possibly it will know how to behave. We think it *might* be something interesting to work with.

Pic #6: Using this SPI interface, we can try to cause a livelock that would get us the checkstop.

Pic #7: Here we can see the CXR SYSTEM CONTROLLER, internal diagram. We believe that the UART port...
 

BioShock PS3 DLC Surfaces Tomorrow on PlayStation Network

50°
317w ago - 2K Boston Assistant Producer Keith Shetler shared the following via PS Blog today:

Hey there! What's that you say? You love challenging gameplay... and failed underwater utopias?

Then prepare to experience the world of Rapture like never before with the BioShock PS3 Challenge Rooms Add-On Content pack available tomorrow, November 20, for $9.99 only on the PlayStation Network.

I'm Keith Shetler, Assistant Producer at 2K Boston, and I'm very excited to introduce two new play modes with this DLC pack: New Game Plus and Challenge Rooms. Both add new twists to the game millions already love!

New Game Plus allows you to start a new supercharged playthrough of BioShock. Ready for this? You begin the game with any weapons, abilities, and inventory that you collected during a previous playthrough. Always wish you could obliterate Dr. Steinman with your uber grenade launcher? Now you can!

Challenge Rooms are another beast altogether. These are puzzle rooms where the objective is to rescue a Little Sister. Sounds easy enough, right? Dead wrong! Whether it's fighting a Big Daddy without any weapons or surviving room after room of Splicers, Challenge Rooms require equal amounts brain and brawn in order to succeed.

The whole BioShock downloadable content...
