109w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developers SKFU and iQD have released PSN Infinity v2 Open Beta, a homebrew PC PSN client with the features outlined below, followed by a version 1.01 bug fix.

Download: PSN Infinity v2 Open Beta Homebrew PC PSN Client / PSN Infinity v2 Open Beta Homebrew PC PSN Client v1.01 / OpenSSL + VC Redists Dependencies

To quote: For all the people who had problems with the login function this release should fix it.

Good evening, everyone! Proudly I present you my newest application "PSN Infinity v2".

Since in most news posts my co-coder genius iQD is forgotten, I have to mention him for his great help on this application here once again.

This version is released as public beta. Completing the app and including all functions I want it to have will take several weeks but the main function aka browsing the PSN stores is already working.

This is the first time I force a donation alert in an app, but necessary as this program is a very huge and time consuming project.

So if you like this beta, please donate a small amount to give me some more time to work...
