Video: PlayStation Move: It Only Does Family Showdowns

200°
183w ago - Today Senior Vice President Peter Dille of Marketing and PlayStation Network has shared a new video featuring Kevin Butler called PlayStation Move: It Only Does Family Showdowns.

To quote: It has been more than two weeks since the launch of PlayStation Move here in North America and we're blown away by the fantastic reception we've received from avid gamers, new gamers, the press and retailers.

Positive reviews continue to pour in for PlayStation Move, with one critic labeling it "the pinnacle of motion-sensing technology" and and another crediting it with going "further than any other system to date in bridging the physical and virtual worlds."

By now you've hopefully gotten your hands on PlayStation Move and have seen Kevin Butler's big "move-in" with the Maguire family.

With a few weeks under their belts, the family raises the stakes with a little friendly competition on Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11. EA Sports has done a fantastic job highlighting the incredible precision of PlayStation Move with a game that the Wall Street Journal recently pointed to as being one of the best justifications for getting your hands on a PlayStation Move.

Part of the inspiration for this next commercial came directly from Tiger as a young boy. Tiger's...

Smackdown vs Raw 2010 Mods for PlayStation 3 Arrive

550°
185w ago - I've have successfully modded the Smackdown 2010 game on the PS3 and can confirm the following:

• The model, texture, wrestler archive (pac) and arc files are exactly the same as the 360 version, therefore these can be interchanged between consoles.
• My X-PacKer 5.0 app which allows for texture editing and injection works perfectly with the ps3format archive files (check http://sf4mods.blogspot.com for the app)
• The game installs all the pac files onto the internal ps3 hard drive when you first boot the game up, so all mods to the game must be done on the internal ps3 hard drive.

I'm randomly getting errors that the data on the internal hdd is corrupt when making changes. Not sure why the game does this as yet.

In order to overcome this, I need to replace the edited files with the originals and then boot the game. I then need to exit to the XMB and add the edited files, boot the game again and it loads fine. There could be a checksum somewhere which is storing the filesizes.

• I'm still investigating hacks to the paint tool files, will post info shortly. Check out Mr Mouse's PT Explorer v0.1.7 app on XeNTaX for more info about this type of hack.
