Video: PS3 Homebrew Flash via Vidzone Music Application

250°
275w ago - Boring, no really interesting news around so I'll try to keep you interested with this little discovery. Tested and working on a retail PS3 machine.

Not only the lame PS3 Internet browser is able to play flash files, the music application Vidzone is also.

Here is a little example:

The startup Vidzone logo and the main menu layout are simple .swf flash files. Write your own flash file format 5 and simply replace those two files to run it standalone by starting Vidzone:

First replace: /dev_hdd0/game/NPEA00135/USRDIR/VidzoneChannel.swf

Second replace: /dev_hdd0/game/NPEA00135/USRDIR/HDForms.swf





I won't explain how to replace files on HDD again, you should know that by now. I'm still experimenting so find out what is possible yourself in the first time.

Video: Gran Turismo 5 PS3 Packaging Reveals Three Discs

550°
276w ago - GTPlanet (linked above) reports today that Gran Turismo 5's PS3 packaging has been revealed by Kazunori Yamauchi himself in the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG video below... which shows how the car made it into the game.

The GT5 packaging includes room for three mysterious Blu-ray discs.

To quote: The most curious thing, of course, is the fact that the packaging clearly contains three separate Blu-Ray cases - one black, one red, and one blue.

What could they be? While the conspiracy theorists get to work, here's a list of other interesting tidbits from the clip:

•Gran Turismo uses one single physics calculation model, so they simply enter the parameters for each car, and the handling characteristics play themselves out within the game. As Yamauchi says, "If the original car is made well, it'll drive well."

•We get a closer look at the 3D model of the SLS AMG in Gran Turismo 5, along with a corner from the Nurburgring Nordschleife.

•Mercedes' narrarator suggests that Yamauchi is "considering" putting the new SLS AMG on the cover, but Yamauchi's following comments (along with the box art seen earlier) all but confirm it will be the star of the show.

As he explains, it "will probably be the most exciting car in...
