55w ago - Following up on the previous updates, today STLcardsWS has shared a preview of RetroXMB which allows users to boot RetroArch ROMs from the PS3 XMB alongside some videos of it in action from UnknownArchive below.

To quote: This hack is very interesting, as it will allow for direct booting of RetroArch playable ROMs from the XMB. Personally I like when i can access more things via the XMB. That's why it's there! So this developer who wishes to be nameless at this time has created a hack/mod from the awesome RetroArch.

This works much like the recently released PS1ToPS3 GUI (for PSOne games XMB direct booting) that was recently released. You will have a PC app that will create the PKG that will also add all required files in order to run. So it is not even required to have the official RetroArch installed However this is not for someone who wants to put a full ROMset on the XMB.

I did however manage to get over 250 roms PKGs installed with no slow down or issues. To see this process of direct booting of a Retro Rom please take a look at the videos below...

55w ago - DrinkBox Studios COO Graham Smith posted up some new videos today confirming that Guacamelee body slams PS3 and PS Vita on April 9, 2013.

To quote: We're excited to finally announce our launch date and pricing details for Guacamelee! The game will be released on April 9th in the Americas, and will support Cross-Buy for $14.99.

This means you buy the game once and get both the PS3 and PS Vita versions. And that's not all... there's also a Platinum Trophy!

With GDC being this week, and the IGF award nomination for "Excellence in Visual Art," we also thought it would be cool to share some early concept art and video footage of the game, so that you can see for yourself how much things have changed. As you can see, Guacamelee! has really come a long way visually since its inception.

We began working on Guacamelee! in February of 2011. For the first two months, the game existed solely as a PowerPoint presentation and some concept art. Here's the very first screenshot mock-up of the game from that presentation:





We brought these materials and another game idea with us to GDC to gauge publisher interest in the two titles. Guacamelee! was clearly the more popular of the two ideas, and after...

To quote: To reintroduce myself, I am the vice president of publisher and developer relations for SCEA, which is a fancy way of saying that I'm working day-in and day-out with my team here to get the world's best and brightest developers to bring their great gaming experiences to all of our PlayStation platforms.

Since my last post, I've joined SCEA and expanded the incredible team that focuses on fostering relationships with publishers and developers that share our goal of bringing the best games to you, the PlayStation community. With that said, the publisher and developer relations team has exciting news to deliver tonight.

During this year's Game Developer's Conference in San Francisco, our team has put a strong focus on independent game developers. This evening, we collaborated with the PlayStation Network team to host a PlayStation Indie Arcade event, where we gave hands-on demos for more than 25 indie games that are coming to all PlayStation platforms. Our goal is to continue to work with the independent developer community to provide fantastic games you can't find anywhere else.

Also from MaXsPoT: Playing PS1 Copy Games on Unmodded PS3 Super Slim - Disk Swap

Here is a video demonstration of playing copied Crash Bandicoot 3 PS1 game on unmodded PS3 super slim.

Here's a method of booting a copy of a PS1 game without modding the PS3 Super Slim. Just simple swapping.

Sorry for the bad quality, there was something wrong with the camera's settings.

How to do this trick:

1- You need an original PS1 game that has the same region of the PS3.
2- A copy PS1 game with the same region as the PS3.
3- Putting some thing (piece of cardboard) to press the things that make...

58w ago - Sony Level Designer Andrew Chrysafidis in Santa Monica has revealed some fresh God of War: Ascension: Trial of the Gods PS3 videos today.

Below are the details, to quote: With less than a week until God of War: Ascension launches, it's time to drop the curtain on our fourth Multiplayer mode, Trial of the Gods, and our next God allegiance reveal - the Lord of the Sea, Poseidon.

In Trial of the Gods, the first two-player God of War co-op time trial mode, you and a friend will tag-team with your Champions to face five increasingly hard waves of mythological beasts, whilst surviving against the hourglass of Olympus.

Over 15 types of enemies await you, including Satyrs, Cerberuses, Cyclopes, Gorgons, Juggernauts, and more deadly creatures. You will start with a set amount of time on the clock, and win time back with every beast you slay.





Decimate a wave and you will be granted a Bonus Time Tiered Award (gold, silver, or bronze) based on how fast you cleared the wave. If you die or run out of time, you'll have to start over again. If you reach the end of the fifth round, an epic boss awaits.

At launch, Trial of the Gods will be available in the following maps: Desert of Lost Souls, Forum...
