169w ago - Today another PS JailBreak PS3 modchip USB clone has arrived called PS3AVR, I have ordered one and arrival date is due around the 16-17th of September so I will let you know how it performs guys 'n gals.
From their site (linked above): All PS3AVR dongles will be shipped blank so that there are no legal issues with importing and selling these items. Software will be made available to download so they can be programmed from a PC USB port with NO additional hardware.
Finished testing prototype devices on all regions of PS3 both Fat and Slim. Mass production to start and first batch should be available for shipping on the 6th of September.
We've received our first finished batch with protective rubber coating so no chance of shorting the device and damaging the PS3 USB like other designs out there. All dealers will receive their stock within the next...

170w ago - VidZone's Head of Production Ben Creasey has shared news of an exclusive behind the scenes with Manic Street Preachers for PS3 fans.
To quote: You know the Manic Street Preachers, everybody does, right? Well they are back and they are on usual blistering top form.
The new single "(It's Not War) Just The End Of Love" is taken from their 10th... Yes 10th! Studio album "Postcards From A Young Man" and guess what... We have an exclusive video from behind the scenes of the shooting of the single's video!
So what you should probably do... and this is just a suggestion... but I think a good suggestion... is... Go check out both the video then the behind the scenes footage then all the other Manics videos (of which we have loads!) on VidZone.
Then wait until the 13th of September and buy the single, then the week after on the 20th of September, Go buy the album. Then I'm sure there will be a tour... so you can go see them live.
