Update: Microsoft Starts New Ban Wave on LIVE Against Modified Firmware

50°
356w ago - UPDATE: It appears that modified fw is NOT being detected, and is instead once again due to 'bad' discs. Keep in mind that the only full proof way to make a 1:1 backup is to do it yourself. iXtreme is as fullproof as it can be, in that it validates everything it possibly can from a firmware point of view, but a game can have slight data change somewhere, most commonly in DMI. Or it can be due to early copies being watermarked so to speak.

This is why you run the risk of being banned on xbox live if you pirate games. Always remember that you run a risk doing such actions.

In regards to game data being properly validated, xdvdmulleter is a tool that has a constantly maintained database to validate backups against retail copies to ensure full stealth. If you have a samsung SH-D16x and would like to contribute to the project to prevent future Live bans.

It looks like Microsoft started a new wave of bans against modified DVD firmwares or DVD+/-R DL discs.

Several users on our forums and on IRC report their Xbox 360 has been banned from LIVE today. We get reports of Toshiba-Samsung and Hitachi-LG drives banned with both Xtreme and even the newer iXtreme firmwares. However we also see many reports of people who are currently on LIVE and have no been banned (yet). No reports of banned...
 

Official: Sony Is Planning To Launch PlayStation Phone

50°
356w ago - After several months of rumors, it has just been confirmed that Sony is currently indeed working on the Playstation Phone project to bring the power of a video game console to a mobile phone device. A high ranking official inside Sony Japan said that Sony wants to grab the two fastest growing electronics markets at once with the Playstation Phone, which are : gaming and mobile telecommunication.

It has also been confirmed that Sony had already submitted an application for a mobile telecommunication device with video games functions to the U.S. Patents and Trademark Office.

When asked about the project, Jim Ryan, Sony Computer Entertainment's Co Chief Operating Officer said that : " The Playstation is a proven success and so is Sony Ericsson. Convergence with the two arms working together is definitely plausible. It is hugely intellectually seductive to have a console oriented phone. "

Diptarup Chakraborti, a Principal Analyst at Gartner Research Firm also said that : " While the Cybershot and Walkman are better selling brands from the Sony fold, Playstation almost enjoys cult status and two strong brands, Sony Ericsson and Playstation would make a strong success story for Sony."

The exact launch date for the Playstation Phone is currently still unknown, but I will let...
 

Ubisoft reveals Rainbow Six Vegas 2

357w ago - Second game coming to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in March next year

Ubisoft has revealed a sequel to last year's Rainbow Six outing in Sin City, Rainbow Six Vegas 2.

The sequel (yes, it's still set in Las Vegas) will be hitting PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in March 2008, with a new single-player campaign and "some surprises" left over for versus and co-op modes. Other than that, Ubisoft is reluctant to reveal any more about the sequel.

"Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas has been the effect of a bomb in the world of video gaming in 2006, by introducing in one fell swoop technological advance and innovation in terms gameplay," said Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot, in a French press release we translated on Google.

"We are confident that Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2 will also pioneer in the field of highly competitive shooters and delight fans of the Rainbow Six brand."

The sequel will again be developed by Ubisoft Montreal. We're sure Clancy fans will be delighted, but we'll wait and see how much the second game has to offer before we get excited.
 

Wii-like motion-control games to come to the PS2

100°
357w ago - A UK-based video games company is taking advantage of Nintendo's ongoing Wii shortage, and launching its own range of PS2 motion-controlled video games.

Developed by In2Games, the RealPlay range includes several Wii-esque titles, such as pool and golf. Each game copy ships with the required piece of kit to ensure gamers' movements are replicated on screen.

For example, the pool title is sold with a wireless replica cue, and the golf title ships with - you guessed it - a golf club to help gamers sink their virtual pills.

However, not all titles have an uncanny Wii Sports feeling about them. In2Games' PuzzleSphere game comes with a wireless sphere that gamers manipulate in real-life to control the on-screen movements of a rollercoaster.

All three titles will be released on 30 November, each priced at around £35 (€55/$70). Similar motion-controlled titles for bowling and tennis are also planned for release next year.

Dusty PS3 kid who was present on Fox News is a paid pro actor

50°
357w ago - Ok, OK, I hate to stir the 'PS3 conspiracy' pot, but I thought people would be interested in this.

Redi Godshaw, the kid with the unusually dusty PS3, is a professional actor and has been paid to act on FOX shows before.

He goes on FOX news, with a horrendously dusty PS3, and it is never mentioned either that A.) He is a professional actor, or B.) His PS3 was far beyond normal levels of 'dusty'.

It just seems to me that FOX didn't provide 'fair and balanced' views of a problem with a foreign electronics manufacturer. Any thoughts?
