PS3 2.0... Finally some Official Information?

50°
351w ago - Just recently on the G.A.P. (Gamer Advisory Panel) section of the US PlayStation site there has been posted a survey for all G.A.P. members. The survey asks:

Choose which XMBâ„¢ (Cross Media Bar) feature would be most important to you in a possible PLAYSTATION®Network update:

A) In-game access to PSN messaging
B) Ability to play my own music from the XMB while in-game
C) Larger buddy list and buddy-list features such as categorizing

Now this, combined with the recent PSP update which offers a feature that may only be used with PS3 FW 2.0 makes for a pretty strong sense that Sony is thinking about releasing the update very soon.

Now this also brings up another worrying issue for the fans hoping to get in-game XMB soon. In the survey it asks to choose only ONE of the following. Does this mean that the complete XMB menu will not be available in-game, and just a portion of it will? Let the speculation begin! Thus far, for those who aren't a GAP member their survey looks like this:

A) 43% 360 votes
B) 52% 442 votes
C) 5% 42 Votes

50°
351w ago - Move over Dark_AleX (unless it's yet another alias of his like 'M33' lol, as the HX-1 Recovery Menu shows M33), Spanish developer _HellDashX_ has released a new PSP Custom Firmware based on Sony's latest firmware update - 3.72.

According to the author, all features from the previous M33 release have been left intact and minor code changes were made to support the 3.72 kernel.

Download: PSP Custom Firmware 3.72 HX-1

Installation (must be currently running at least 3.71 M33 or 3.71 M33-2):

* Create a folder called UPDATE in PSP/GAME
* Copy umodule.prx and EBOOT.PBP to the UPDATE folder
* Download the official firmware 3.72 update, name it as 372.PBP and place in UPDATE folder
* Run the 3.72 firmware update from the PSP Game menu. When the update is finished, you must follow the on screen prompt to press X and restart your PSP.
 

Gears of War Review

50°
352w ago - A year back when Gears of War (GoW) released on the XBOX-360, it was the best thing next to sliced bread and reviewers from every corner of the gaming empire waxed long and sweet poetries about it.

This year, Epic Games has gone another mile to extend their award winning masterpiece to the PC elite. Packing five new chapters in the campaign, new multiplayer content and an epic finale in the form of a boss fight, this game has created some serious concerns among many XBOX360 fans over the "incomplete" version they played yesteryear. How well does this bone crushing title play? Is it worth the delay and extra content to buy it on the PC? Hell, yea!!! Read on to find out more...

Marcus Fenix is back and you play as this ex-prisoner who's silent on the lips and ruthless on the gun. The story takes place fourteen year after an event called Emergence Day where a group of creatures called the 'Locust Horde' burst from the ground and launch a full scale invasion on an otherwise peaceful planet. In a desperate attempt to thwart the ongoing brutality, every person who calls himself a human is called to war for mankind's ultimate survival. Macus Fenix' body armor looks shinier than ever and we're praying solemnly that it would show up on Ebay someday like those 'Big Daddy' costumes of late. Shooting...
 

iPhone v1.1.2 breaks jailbreak -- coming to the UK on Friday

50°
352w ago - When we first got our hands on the UK iPhone back in September, it was already running the 1.1.1 firmware. The same firmware which helpfully bricked a number of hacked iPhones Stateside upon later release. Now T3 is claiming that the UK iPhone -- set for release on November 9th -- is kicking 1.1.2 under the glass.

Besides support for French and German keyboard layouts and characters, the other notable change is the shuttering of the TIFF exploit used to jailbreak and then install (and unlock) third party applications on the 1.1.1 iPhone and iPod touch. With the possibility that Apple might release 1.1.2 globally with the UK launch on Friday, consider yourselves warned.

It's not like there's a lot of incentive for you to update anyway (remember, it's optional) what with the latest jailbreak simultaneously exploiting and then plugging the TIFF exploit to keep your browsing safe. For whatever it's worth, the February SDK isn't too far away -- perhaps you should wait 'till then to get right with The Steve.
 

Warhawk 1.1 Patch Now Officially Available

50°
352w ago - The Warhawk 1.1 patch is now officially available for download. To get the latest patch, just launch your Warhawk game and you will be notified that the 1.1 update is available.

The download is about 8.2 megs. If you managed to get the patch before today's official release, when it was accidentally released, you'll find there are fixes to the "viral-rank-up" and the "time-in-vehicle stat".

To quote: Just wanted to make a quick post to let everyone know that the Warhawk v1.1 patch will be deployed world-wide on Friday, November 2nd, during an extended maintenance window between 5am and 9am Pacific.

Some of you were able to download the v1.1 patch before it was "officially" ready. Since this occurred without the server-side updates to complement it, not all of the fixes would have functioned. Specifically, the viral-rank-up fix and the time-in-vehicle stat fix. Once we bring the system back online Friday, 9am Pacific, these fixes will be functional.

Also, once we deploy the patch, when you boot Warhawk, you will be prompted by the XMB to download the v1.1 patch. This is a fast download so it's not a time killer. Once the XMB has pulled the patch down, Warhawk will boot back up and be happy! You will also notice a "v1.1″ in the lower right corner of the screen.
