253w ago - Update: For those curious, only five are being made with a price tag of $4,999 each. A jeweled limited edition model with a lifetime warranty will be available in the coming weeks.

Those who thought the ColorWare PS3 Slim case modifications were snazzy may want to give this a peek... a PS3 Slim customized mod dipped in 24kt gold!

According to ChipChick.com (linked above), there will be only five of these limited edition consoles available from [Register or Login to view links]... but chances are, nobody will be able to afford one anyway so don't fret too much.

To quote: "Computer-Choppers has given us a little sneak peak at their latest creation - a PS3 Slim dipped in 24kt gold. This console is one of 5 limited edition units being produced.

If you thought the Colorware version of the PS3 Slim knocked your socks off then this will blow your mind. If you want to have your very own PS3 Slim chunk of gold at home you'll have to email Computer-Choppers to inquire."

254w ago - I play a lot of Socom Confrontation, and quite often I would accidentally hit the 2 analog buttons which in most cases would lead to certain death.

So the other night I cracked open my DS3 and did a little PS3 controller modding.

Below is a video of my PS3 DS3 L3/R3 Controller Relocation Mod in action. I figured I would make a little guide for the other gamers with heavy thumbs.

Videos Part 1 and Part 2 are below.. Enjoy!








 

Video: PS3 Homebrew Flash via Vidzone Music Application

250°
256w ago - Boring, no really interesting news around so I'll try to keep you interested with this little discovery. Tested and working on a retail PS3 machine.

Not only the lame PS3 Internet browser is able to play flash files, the music application Vidzone is also.

Here is a little example:

The startup Vidzone logo and the main menu layout are simple .swf flash files. Write your own flash file format 5 and simply replace those two files to run it standalone by starting Vidzone:

First replace: /dev_hdd0/game/NPEA00135/USRDIR/VidzoneChannel.swf

Second replace: /dev_hdd0/game/NPEA00135/USRDIR/HDForms.swf





I won't explain how to replace files on HDD again, you should know that by now. I'm still experimenting so find out what is possible yourself in the first time.

257w ago - Update: As expected, it's now released! Download: Homebrewed PS3 System File Editor v0.80

According to RichDevX's Twitter (linked above), Hellcat plans to release an updated Homebrewed PS3 SFO Editor in approximately 48 hours.

This comes roughly two years after the PS3 BRDGen Team released a similar application dubbed SFO-Edit v1.0.

According to the pictures (below), the homebrew PS3 System File Editor v0.80 will attempt to reproduce the functionality that Sony's PS3Gen (ps3sys.exe specifically) offers for SFO extension files... allowing you to view, edit, and save PARAM.SFO files.

We will update this post when it's actually released of course.

258w ago - Recently alexman101 has won the grand prize in an AcidMods content for his PS3 Mod, complete with 104 LEDs coupled with the PulseVU 2X chip.

As shown in the video below (just after the 3-minute mark), the modified PS3 console also "lets the beat rock" with its 104 LEDs.

Below are some pictures of it in the light and dark for those interested, which also show off the modded controller with 9 LEDs.

A lot of work definitely went into this PlayStation 3 modification, and the worklog with pictures throughout the process can be seen [Register or Login to view links]. A nicely modded PS3 indeed!
