FCC Docs Reveal PSP Go Clock Speed Maxes Out at 480Mhz

300°
250w ago - Some documents from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) are suggesting that the new PSP Go may be packing more power under its sliding exterior than what Sony has officially revealed.

Contrary to official statements from Sony that peg the PSP Go's top clock frequency at 333 MHz, the FCC's test reports indicate that the PSP Go actually maxes out at 480 MHz.

Perhaps the extra power is for the in-game XMB. Games would likely still be locked at the 333MHz max for uniformity across all of the PSP SKUs.

The 480MHz max clock frequency is mentioned in page 3 of the Test Report 1 pdf above. The official tech specs can be viewed here.

254w ago - Kojima has updated his teaser site and it leads to a special E3 page.

On the page it has the Mask site, and the now revealed Metal Gear Solid: Rising.

Could it be the Metal Gear Solid PSP title? Likely chance, but Kojima is a crafty guy.

We have seen revealed, thus far, Metal Gear Solid: Rising and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.

Cinematic Mod 10 Screens Reveal Bump Map Rocks & HD Objects

300°
260w ago - The Cinematic Mod 10 is under construction, and new screenshots show the Bump Maps for rocks, the 'worth seeing' HD objects and an enhanced Alyx figure (below).

According to the modder Fakefactory, the Cinematic Mod 10 is in Pre-Beta phase and so the screenshots possibly don't represent the final graphics.

Most interesting are the laboriously modeled and textured HD objects like PCs and technical devices. But the new rocks with detailed Bump Maps are an eye catcher, too. Furthermore there is a new "eased" version of the alternative HD Alyx.

Finally, some background on Cinematic Mod 10: A release date has not been announced yet. The HD characters have been heavily optimized in version 10. Due to a new LoD system the framerate should be noticeably better than it has been in Cinematic Mod 9.

Among the new features are HD models for certain objects and a new, optional HD model of Alyx. Furthermore a dynamic soundtrack, some HDR tweaks and some more bugfixes have been added.

Mistaking Anise for Electronic Theatre Imagea descendent of the legendary Hero of Albyon, the king offers her an ultimatum: free the prince, who was captured by the ancient Demon King, or be convicted as a thief and locked away for life.

Steal Princess aims to break the mould as a Puzzle/Platformer hybrid by offering an intense single player campaign spread over more than 150 levels of increasing complexity. Once the player completes this mode they can then jump into the in-depth level creator, allowing them to determine the layout of the level and where monsters appear, place moving...
