400°
240w ago - Recently a hacked XBox 1 Backwards Compatibility update - version 5829 - for XBox 360 Devkits (and possibly modded units, although untested) has been leaked.

From the ReadMe File: This is a devkit version of the retail xbox360 backwards compatibility that was released November 2007.

To install this, copy the Compatibilty folder to your devkits Y drive. You may want to remove any existing files, although this should overwrite all files.

This version has been hacked to play unsupported games, however this doesn't mean they will work. This release includes a hacked version of the official frontend, however you may want to try my replacement frontend which allows you to set emulation options for each game.

At the moment there are 556 officially supported games, (ie games that should work 100% or close to it). A list of these games is available here:

Hacks:

I've attempted to remove any limits on the emulator, although i left in game ratings checks in case you dont want your little ones to play violent games

Video: ZPack for PS3 - The First PlayStation 3 Backup System?!

1350°
251w ago - Below is a video from TheIndianKhan on YouTube and some info on Zpack for PS3, which claims (ZPack FAQ) to be the first PlayStation 3 backup system.

To quote: I found this in my holiday in Korea, there are PS3 cafes which run their games from external harddisk without using the original disks. I am one of the first who tested this Zpack System.

Zpack is the first working Backup System for PlayStation 3. It was especially designed for PlayStation Cafes across the world to avoid damaging your original game disk and beware them to be stolen by customers. You will not need the original disk to play on your PS3 anymore just start any game you have directly from your external hard disk.

Zpack comes to you with a USB Dongle and a DISK with the Zpack Software, which you only need the first time for installation. The USB dongle have to be connected to your PS3 all the time. When you run a PlayStation Cafe with 8 PlayStation Terminals, you will need 8 Zpacks for each PS3 Terminal to run the games from the external drives. Please pay Attention for our Zpack bundles.

XBox 360 Gets Hack to Play Backups Not Detectable by Microsoft

650°
258w ago - As a follow-up to the recent XBox Live Bans and HDD Crippling wave comes word today that C4Eva is working on a new XBox 360 DVD Firmware.

Although the hack is currently in the development and testing phase, it's been dubbed iXtreme LT (Lite Touch).

To quote from #fw on [Register or Login to view links] EFNet: "[c4eva] new fw in dev/test - ixtreme LT (Lite Touch) - more efficient, minimal patching, all aspects of fw indistinguisable from orig, no more bans, No ETA!"

We do not have more details at the moment. As far as we know the 3 'test boxes' C4Eva has running are still fine (not banned).

So there's NO ETA for the firmware yet, but it should come out for Lite-On drives first.
 

EA Slashes 1500 Jobs, Cuts Back on New IP by Half in 2010

50°
259w ago - Today CEO John Riccitiello of Electronic Arts announced that it is set to cut 1500 jobs, and in addition to that they will be cutting back on new IP by 50 per cent through the next fiscal year.

According to [Register or Login to view links], this is part of their effort to reduce market risks during a tough economic period.

To quote: The result has been a string of new franchises such as Dead Space, Mirror's Edge, Spore, Zubo, Brutal Legend and Henry Hatsworth. The critical and commercial success of these new ventures has been mixed to say the least, though there have been notable successes.

However, question marks now hang over every non-established EA series.

"Electronic Arts has a core slate of games label and sports franchises that we will iterate on a either annual or bi-annual basis," Riccitiello stated.

"And I think you know what those major titles are - all of them are selling or have sold in their most recent edition 2m units or more."

"After that, we've got The Sims and Hasbro, and frankly anything that doesn't measure up to looking like it can pencil out to be in very high profit contributor and high unit seller got cut from our title slate from this point going forward."
