In related news, Marcan has Tweeted a picture (below) stating, to quote: "proof that RSX 3D works, time to pester the nouveau guys to figure out how we can use it sanely "

From his Blog (linked above): OK I'm back again with one of my simple apps. I'm lazy and I like one button solutions. I have created a new loader based on Hermes loader.

It does everything almost the same, but you don't have to go through the extra step of putting the bins...

"As most of you will probably already know, I've been working on a project recently which aims to run Linux on the PS3 using the PSJailbreak exploit, effectively replacing GameOS on the fly.

I think it's gotten to the point where it's useful enough for other people to be interested, so here's something resembling an official announcement.

193w ago - Today Kotaku (linked above) has reported that a new Madden NFL 11 250GB PS3 bundle has surfaced at retailer Best Buy which may interest sports fans.

Not surprisingly, just a few days ago a Madden NFL 11 PSP bundle was also officially announced by Sony.

To quote: "If you're finally ready to jump into PlayStation 3 ownership and plan on doing so with a copy of Madden NFL 11, wait for the bundle.

BB's listing a Madden NFL 11 250GB PS3 bundle with the same street date as the main game, Aug. 10. Right now, it's listed in a dead category in Best Buy's database.

That's typically done to mask a product from searches before it's been officially announced the tipster says."
