103w ago - Following up on the rumor from last week that a PlayStation Vita Hello World was achieved through a PSP Save Game exploit, today established PSP hacker wololo has confirmed it and stated that a Half-Byte Loader (HBL) is incoming!
To quote: Last week, an exploit on the PS Vita through the PSP emulator was announced by Mamosuke. The exploit was found by Teck4, and, we won't stress it enough, is a PSP exploit that gives us user mode access within the PSP emulator on the Vita. So this is not a Vita exploit per se, but it's still very cool.
Mamosuke confirmed this with a video a few days ago, and today I was able to confirm the exploit myself as shown in the video below (and I must admit that I spent way too much time working on that basic flame effect). The video below shows the exploit running on both a PSP 1000 and the PS Vita.
Here's also a screenshot since there is not autofocus on my stupid camera.
I spent a good amount of time today confirming some of my hopes that it will be possible to run HBL, at least to some extent, with that exploit. It doesn't mean I have...
116w ago - Capcom Product Manager Mike Lunn has announced today that next Wednesday (Tuesday in North America) Resident Evil: Code Veronica X HD is hitting PSN and will be 50% off for PlayStation Plus subscribers.
To quote: More classic Resident Evil horror is heading to the PlayStation Network next week with Resident Evil: Code Veronica X HD! Claire Redfield, after narrowly escaping Raccoon City, is searching for her brother Chris.
Captured while sneaking around an Umbrella facility and snooping for leads, Claire is hauled off to a maximum security prison installation on Rockfort Island. While making her escape, she realizes the island is being overrun by zombies and Bio-Organic Weapons.
Claire meets another prisoner, Steve Burnside, who is also looking to escape ... but will they be able to work together to make it out alive? The island is veiled in secrets and the family behind the Umbrella Corporation has a deadly agenda of their own. Relive the survival horror classic available via PlayStation Network on Wednesday, Sept. 28th.
As we mentioned last week, we've got even more RE deals for PlayStation fans to help celebrate Resident Evil's 15th anniversary. For PlayStation Plus members, we're offering the same 50-percent-off...
165w ago - TimeGate Studios Game Designer Mark Yetter has shared a few videos today while announcing that Section 8 is currently half off on PSN and Prejudice is coming to PS3 in 2011.
To quote: I'm here with two exciting announcements for PS3 players. First, I'm thrilled to confirm that we're bringing our new title, Prejudice, to the PS3 in 2011!
We've been working really hard to take our sci-fi shooter series to new heights; no easy task considering players literally drop into combat from 15,000 feet above the battlefield.
Using all of the great feedback from our fans we've created a new experience that is guaranteed to blow you away. Here are some new screenshots and our debut announcement trailer:
Prejudice comes with epic multiplayer maps, new game modes and missions, and a huge arsenal of weapons. The all-new single-player campaign follows the story of Captain Alex Corde and the 8th Armored Infantry-known as Section 8 for their willingness to take on extremely dangerous missions. Old hatreds run deep for the enemies of Section 8. A war of prejudice is coming...
Second, we are permanently slashing the price of the original Section 8 on PlayStation Network to just $14.99....
193w ago - Not long ago we reported on a PSP Firmware 6.20 Patapon 2 Save Game Exploit, and today firespike8 has posted from the SVN both a binary and source alongside a demo video for the PSPgo Half Byte Loader Beta 1.0 and game pack.
The game pack includes all games/apps compatible with PSP 3000 and PSPgo, and was tested on 6.20 Assassins Creed PSP and Gran Turismo Edition.
However, only a small amount of homebrew works, other homebrew (like emulators and LUA-powered PSP homebrew) do not work yet.
To quote: This is the half byte loader pack WITH working and maybe working games inside. It contains everything you need for running the eloader except the patapon 2 demo which I have provided a link to in the readme.
I made the instructions as simple and noob proof as possible so there will hopefully be alot less complaints/questions.
