PSP Custom Firmware 3.80 M33 and M33-2 Fix Released!

100°
367w ago - Update: Dark_AleX has now released a 3.80 M33 1.50 Add-On for FAT PSPs running 3.80 M33 only.

Instructions:

- Copy the files in the release to a directory called anything BUT UPDATE
- Move the directory you created to /PSP/GAME/.
- Get the Sony 1.50 update and copy it to the root with name "150.PBP"
- Run the program and done.

3.80 M33 includes a new feature to update the firmware directly via Network Update, however this will not work for this 1.50 Add-On as it is an optional add-on (and only for FAT PSPs).

NOTE: 3.80 M33 must be installed before installing this add-on.

Blu-ray vs. HD DVD: What's Next?

50°
367w ago - This should be the final year for the high-def format war.. So, what's next?

After Warner Bros.' endorsement of Blu-ray shortly before the Consumer Electronics Show, many analysts have said Blu-ray will be the ultimate winner in its high-def disc format war against HD DVD.

But how much longer will the war go on? And, what will happen before it comes to an end -- assuming that it does?

Here's my prediction for what's likely to transpire in the high-def format war in 2008:

1.The HD DVD Surge
Toshiba said today that it will slash prices on HD DVD players and expand its marketing campaign. Clearly, the format's leading supporter is trying to show the studios and other industry players that it's still a competitive battle.

However, in part because of the negative press from CES (thanks to Warner Bros), relatively few consumers will bite on the lower prices due to fears that they will purchase a soon-to-be obsolete format.

2. Toshiba & Sony Will Begin Peace Talks
While awaiting sales results from the first quarter, Toshiba and Sony (Blu-ray's leading supporter) will begin informal negotiations for establishing a single format. With five major studios behind it (compared to HD DVD's two), Sony has the leverage here, but it wants to bring this battle...
 

MechWarrior: Living Legends for PC

50°
367w ago - Perhaps it's no wonder MechWarrior landed on its feet in this mod for Crysis, given the size of their giant metal hooves. The closure of developers FASA Studio in 2007 should have spelled doom for the duelling droids.

But keeping an army of stompy robots down isn't so easy, especially when the BattleTech fanbase stands at an estimated 25 million, some of whom carry Crytek business cards.

Like the Battlefield games, Living Legends is large-scale multiplayer combat with vehicles, but here the 'vehicles' are Mechs: gigantic walking weapons platforms. Part FPS and part sim, its mix of mechanised combat and soldiery brings it closer than ever to the complete BattleTech package - the MechWarrior universe established by the tabletop rulebooks of the '80s and '90s.

The gist of it is this: if you're caught in open terrain by a Mech, you're crab meat. Lure one into the confines of city streets, however, and it's a whole other story. Imagine guerrilla tactics versus 17 storeys of motorised steel. Or taut ground/air battles which swirl around a single pair of epic units.

Or spawning 20km out from the heat of battle, towering over the distant hills, wrapped in the contrails of air-to-air missiles. Living Legends already promises maps of up to 64km2.

Much of it does sound a bit...

It is a special unit, it runs unsigned code, and can do loads of debugging.
