50°
312w ago - Recently there were reports of Killzone 2 BETA invites going out to a very limited number of European PlayStation 3 owners, and Play3-Live (among many others) now confirmed they have indeed received their code.

To quote, roughly translated: SCEE started to send a wave of e-mail to several European players. These messages contain codes which make it possible to take part in BETA of Killzone 2!

Do not forget to look at your e-mail box, even in the file "Spam".

Finally, Killzone 2 will leave in February 2009, of exclusiveness on the PlayStation 3.
 

Monster Hunter 3 - PS3 Transition, Monsters Reworked & More!

50°
313w ago - Monster Hunter 3 is an upcoming title from Capcom that is one of the most anticipated Nintendo Wii titles within Japan.

Although announced for Japan only, with talks of it going elsewhere as well, this title wasn't always set for the Nintendo Wii but rather the Playstation 3. With the change of platforms Capcom had to rethink how it would be developing this title as the PlayStation 3 version was to be originally be built off Monster Hunter 1.

Ryozo Tsujimoto, producer of this title, revealed that with the change to Nintendo Wii they were given the opportunity to build the game from scratch which they knew would be the harder way to go but would pay off the most.

Kaname Fujioka, director of the title, has also made it known that monsters that have originally appeared in previous Monster Hunter titles will feel new and different to fans of this series as all elements of monsters have also been rehashed.

Monsters will also seem more realistic in this title as in previously in the series Monsters acted with no awareness of other monsters surrounding them but this time awareness will be at full advantage and players will be able to use this to their advantage.

Kaname Fujioka gave an example that if a larger monster was in the back and small monsters were...
 

PS3 Dev Progress Update - Flowcharts and More!

400°
314w ago - This is just a short post to let everyone know we're still alive. Its been a quiet summer, most people were off on vacation (or on holiday, for our friends across the pond), including many of our own PS3 Devs.

However, the summer is over and we all went back to work in full force on the PS3, adding some new and very talented Devs along the way who will be helping out!

For starters, our very own ggparallel spent the past month or so along with NDT testing countless edited PS3 Firmwares on the PS3, and has been able to drastically refine our knowledge of the PS3's bootup procedure.

Below is a clear flowchart of the current theory of operation, the basic procedure is the same as we previously posted, that the system is booted in a "chain" so to speak. LV0 loads lv1ldr, which loads lv1.self (the Hypervisor).

Then depending on the system to be booted, loads the proper Hypervisor policy and then loads the lv2loader for the GameOS. That in turn, loads the LV2 Kernel, which is also hash checked (so we can't change it, forgetting the fact that its encrypted too). From there, the rest of the system is brought up.

Furthermore, we have still been digging through the flash...
 

Rumor: New XBox Experience to Launch on September 25 & More!

50°
315w ago - If this is remotely true, the Internet's going to break. This post on VGChartz reckons New Xbox Experience will launch on September 25 alongside what sounds like a comedic amount of game announcements.

To quote: "Microsoft will release a dozen new demos after the launch. There will be four new downloadable pieces of content a preview of the GTA DLC. A Mass Effect expansion. Portal and a free map pack for Halo 3.

Microsoft will unveil twelve new games never seen before that will be exclusive or first on the 360. Strangely enough the author only gives out code names for said games. Though they speculate that among them is Assassins Creed 2, Mass Effect 2, a new Conker title, a Rare shooter new franchise, and two new Halo titles."

Seriously, this is highly likely to be complete bollocks. Read it, though. If it's a lie, it's a great one. The codewords for the games are priceless.
 

PSM3 Rumors: PlayTV Delay Causes, Medal Of Honor, and More!

50°
315w ago - Here is the latest news and rumors from the new PSM3 magazine's 'The Insider' article, courtesy of SWORDF1SH via GameTrailers (linked above).

To quote: Alone in the Dark is being redesigned for PS3. Expect right stick camera control, a slicker menu system and enhanced visuals.

Apparently the reason for the 6 month delay of PlayTV, is that Sony tried to implement Freesat (an HD-capable alternative to Freeview), but its impossible - for now. PlayTV 2.0? Surely not...

Guitar Hero IV shots have leaked showing in-game Ozzy Osbourne renders. But the series could be in trouble after Warner Brothers were demanding more money for use of their music in the game, and in Rock Band too.

The new Medal Of Honor is rumored to take place in modern-day Afghanistan, possibly revolving around Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Intriguing details of BioShock's PS3-exclusive 'Plasmid challenges' have emerged. They're said to play like Valves ingenious Portal featuring twisted logic puzzles.

A BioShock movie's in the works, and designer Ken Lavine has said "it'll very much honour the dramatic themes of the game".

There's a new Sly Racoon game coming to the PSP. Vigil Games, the devs of Darksiders: Wrath Of War were set to work on it, but moved to that game instead.
