351w ago - Chris Priestly, a BioWare community coordinator has commented that Mass Effect for the PS3 is just a rumor at this stage. However, he comments that BioWare could make Mass Effect for the PS3 in the future but they are not working on this currently.

To quote: They sure didn't. They paid over $860 million.

Sorry folks, this is just another rumor at this stage. Could BioWare make Mass Effect for the PS3 (or the PC, or some other platform) in the future? Yes we could, but we are not working on a PS3 version currently.

351w ago - Tonight mainman has released the PS3 NAND Dump Extractor/Unpacker that has been in the works for awhile!

Download: PS3 NAND Dump Extractor

It comes with a Windows and Linux binary as well as source code, and those without an Infectus Mod can still experiment with it using the following 'dumpable dumps' files (via PS3 Infectus) available in iRC EFnet #PS3News when merged:

samsungk9f1g08uoa_a-_www.PS3News.com_.rar [54.2 MB (56,925,643 bytes)]

samsungk9f1g08uoa_b_usb-_www.PS3News.com_.rar [54.4 MB (57,066,577 bytes)]

From the ReadMe file: This tool is used to interleave, then byteswaps both dumps of the PS3 NAND. Upon completion, it creates a 'user readable' file.

This file is then scanned by the tool, and the flash files are extracted to a folder. This folder is named PS3Nand-XXX.XXXX, where XXX.XXXX is the SDK Version magic in the flash (usually the version number of the firmware)

.B .A usually works, however in some cases .A .B order is required.
