Are Sony PlayStation 3 Exclusive Titles Cursed by the Media?

400°
282w ago - PS3 exclusives have a way of getting dissed by the general public and media before they are given a chance. The more superstitious fanboy might even call it a PS3 curse.

Let's run down the list: Lair became an industry whipping boy filling up YouTube with spastics that flailed SIXAXIS controllers with reckless abandon.

Ninja Theory's gorgeous Heavenly Sword wasn't measured on its own merits, but was held up against the standard that should be reserved for God of War.

Sega's stellar Valkyria Chronicles is seemingly invisible to the majority of mainstream gamers. Resistance 2 hasn't seen the sales a title of its caliber deserves. It's almost as if we've collectively banded together to repeatedly punish Ken Kutargi for his oft-echoed and ill-advised comments of "People will get a second job to buy the PS3." No, Ken. We didn't.

Then Killzone 2 dropped. If the PS3 has ever seen a game changer this is it. Strangely, the PS3 has been having a couple of great weeks. The launch of Yakuza 3 during the first week of March sparked a fury of PS3 console sales across the sea in Japan.

The PS3 outsold all other consoles including the dominant Nintendo handhelds in its home market. Over here, Killzone 2 moved 750,000 units in its opening weekend alone....

Lamers Have PS3 HDD Decrypted Tutorial, Sony Now Knows!

850°
282w ago - This working of knightsolidus with me was supposed to be private, but now DemonHades leaked it and then Pirate posted it like a fool before work was done. We try to control it by put fake but now is too late -- THANKS FOR NOTHING GUYS!

This part is also lie, it was NOT EVER brought to public attention by knightsolidus: "knightsolidus stumbled upon this during his research and brought it to the public's attention."

He ask them to remove it from their page, they did not respect and post it more like basters!

Regard to SKFU, he is right in some parts.. I was excited of seeing new files, until I find they were only from debug like CJPC said already. Also, is true so far we only remove the HDD crypt so this not much help until file crypt is beaten.

All this is truth also of SKFU: You get a few sprx, rco and xml files, possible a few more types but those are useless unless you can remove the encryption of the file itself. But you can't yet. So the only thing you can do for example is getting the firmware part which is on the HDD. But these are only UNPACKED files, NOT DECRYPTED files. You may be able to replace several firmware files ye, so if replacing some text in the XMB or an icon is a custom firmware for you, have fun with the knowledge that this may brick your PS3 and is useless...
 

Video: Has Sony's PlayStation Home Been Hacked?

700°
282w ago - It's too early to tell if this is just a bug, glitch, or if someone actually hacked Sony's PlayStation Home server to change the message for all PS3's, however, what is confirmed thus far is that numerous people have experienced the same issue.

That being said, lorello1978 shared a video on YouTube which states the following, via rough translation:

I turned on the PS3, I started Home, I did the upgrade required. Restarted the console, at one point turning in Home in my house, I noticed a terrible slowdown, as to seem a lag of the modem.

Not understanding why and thinking: "I like the fiber optic connection and I have a 320GB inside ... why !?!?"





I open the console window in Home and I go to see the messages and news, to see what improvements have brought the new upgrade...

Then I read these things a little reassuring that you see in the video. Someone knows what happens? I am the only one?
