87w ago - PlayStation Network Community Manager Morgan Haro has announced today that PS Plus members will be granted first access to Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier on April 10, 2012.
To quote: Releasing in May, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier not only promises an engaging single-player campaign, but bone-rattling battlefields to storm in multiplayer.
And now, PlayStation Plus subscribers will have first access to the multiplayer beta come April 17th.
The beta will be published on April 17th in the PlayStation Plus section of the Store. If you've elected for Automatic Downloads as a subscriber, the beta will also be automatically pushed to your PS3 when it's released! Otherwise, you can download it when you're ready and hop in the multiplayer action.
It's important to note that the beta itself starts on the 19th of April. So while you'll be able to download it on 4/17, the action can't be accessed until Thursday, 4/19.
If you're not in on the PlayStation Plus action, click here to snag your subscription, or head to the PlayStation Store to unlock immediate access.
90w ago - Following up on the PSP SaveGame Exploit on PS Vita from a few days ago, today PlayStation Vita hacker wololo reports that Davee has obtained PSP Kernel access on PS Vita through another exploit with a PS Vita PSP HEN demo video and details below!
To quote: Famous PSP dev Davee just posted a YouTube video showing him running PSP homebrews on a Vita. I initially thought “well, not a big surprise, he’s running his own port of VHBL to some random exploited game”, but it turns out this is much more interesting than that, as he managed to get a PSP Kernel exploit running on the PSP Emulator.
Davee had hinted a few days ago on twitter that he had PSP User mode access, but it’s a surprise to see Kernel mode today. What this means to the end user is full homebrew compatibility (unlike VHBL which is hit and miss), and potentially down the road, PSP iso loaders (the video actually shows a psp iso running). Check his video below:
The video shows a minimalist interface called “PRX Loader” which seems to be used to run the homebrews. No word...
