Download: PS3 Heretic and Hexen Homebrew Ports

The quote from Hermes post on Spanish Web site Elotrolado (linked above), roughly transleted by me with help from babelfish:

Hello,

In order to celebrate that PSL1GHT already beginning to have a good foundation and with the addition of the PS3 Soundlib that allows it to reproduce up to 16 voices of sound, I have ported two classic games from the PC to PS3 that make use of multiple effects: The games Heretic and Hexen.

In order for them, to work they require wads HERETIC.WAD and HEXEN.WAD respectively (shareware or full retail will work, in capital letters and with that name) that must be copied in the directory of the EBOOT.BIN, within the folder " heretic" and " hexen" respectively, on a USB device.

224w ago - Today PuppetMaster reports that drk||Raziel has just [Register or Login to view links] he is working on porting NullDC and PCSX2 to Sony's PS3 entertainment system.

For those unaware, NullDC is a DreamCast emulator and PCSX2 is a PS2 emulator, with the official news update below, to quote:

"Well, sometimes you just can't get free from your projects as easily as you want to. So, seeing as there wasn't much interest in nulldc's source I started to work at it again ! (And yes, of course it will remain open source).

So, I'm officially again working on nullDC! There's a bank of ideas on the wiki on what I plan to do. We're also planning to get the project side back up and stuff.

Leaving that aside, I'd also like to ask for donations. The project hasn't really asked for donations so far (except specific cases, like the Pandora port that required hardware to be brought). As I'm running quite low on money I'll open up donations for the project.

Donated money will be used for: Getting a ps3, porting/working on nullDC/pcsx2 for ps3, getting a jtag'd xbox to port stuff to it, and finally to pay for server/misc hardware fees."

To quote: Speaking to the [Register or Login to view links], Kotick claims that 60 percent of Xbox Live users are there "principally because of Call of Duty," and that Activision doesn't see a fair share of the money from it.

Kotick described closed console networks as "walled gardens," and said that his company would "very aggressively" support PC manufacturers such as Dell and HP in any efforts to produce gamer-friendly PCs that plug directly into televisions, creating the opportunity for Activision to open an online network of its own.

Kotick made similar statements to The Wall Street Journal last month, claiming at the time that only 30 percent of the company's profits come from console games.
