284w ago - As a follow-up to last week's post, this week we deliver more information on the SN Systems suite of products, specifically the Target Manager and ProDG Debugger for PS3.
As most recall, for ages SN Systems tools have required license files, usually based off a PC's MAC address and only available to licensed developers. We managed to 'acquire' a few for our PS3 Devs, but in addition to those each EXE had to be modified... but it was not a problem for one of our talented DEVs!
In the video below (clear version HERE), it demonstrates adding the SN license file, and showing that it is valid.
After that the Target Manager (which facilitates PC/PS3 communications) is started up, the old TEST removed, and then readded. Upon readding we take a quick browse around the program, while connecting to the PS3. It shows the PS3's IP address, SDK version (at 2.40) among other information.

To quote: Although it is currently unclear how the copyright bill will be enforced, observers have said enforcement could be aided if Canada signs on to the proposed Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, to be tabled next month at the G8 summit in Japan.
The agreement, which was recently published on a Web site known for disseminating leaked documents, would require Internet service providers to police the content that travels over its network.
According to the four-page document, ISPs could required to filter pirated digital files and reveal the identities of customers suspected of infringing on copyrighted material.

A statement from the Corporation read as follows: "It has been agreed that production of both Eight Days and The Getaway will cease immediately due to the redistribution of resources and budget.
This decision was made following an internal review of all games and it was deemed that with the incredibly strong list of exclusive first party titles coming up both this year and in the near future, resource should be reallocated to enhance those projects closer to completion.
