Video: Project to Run PS1/PS2 Back-ups on PS3 with a Mod-Chip

1150°
218w ago - The DemonHades Spanish PS3 Development team has been working on a project which aims to utilize a mod-chip to run PS1 and PS2 back-ups on a PS3 console without opening it or using switches and have posted up a concept video today.

According to one individual with a highly questionable reputation, this concept project could work because PS1/PS2 discs are authenticated only once on the VSH though liblv2 and the PIC chip would just automate it.

However, if Sony updates liblv2.sprx and more specifically ps1rom.bin so the emulated mechacon is updated it could be patchable.

Finally, to roughly translate from the video's caption:

"This video montage shows the operation of the chip that we are developing to load copies of PS1 and PS2 (if you're retro) in the PS3.

This video shows how to...

To quote: With the game coming out so soon and everyone at [Register or Login to view links] excited to see what you guys thought of it, we wanted to get your opinions on the PlayStation.Blog and have the chance to answer some questions you guys might have for us.

To start off, let me explain a little about Forgotten Sands. The first thing I wanted to mention is to let you all know that this is not a movie based on the [Register or Login to view links].

In fact, we are bringing the prince back to the roots from the PlayStation 2 era by having this game take place in the seven year gap between Sands of Time and Warrior Within. We think you'll notice a lot of reminiscent elements of the original trilogy in Forgotten Sands.

Some other things we're extremely excited to talk about are the elemental powers and epic battles that take place n the game. Thanks to the Anvil Engine from Assassin's...

200°
235w ago - Today United Front Games Designer Mat Thomas has shared details, including hints of custom soundtracks coming, alongside a video dubbed ModNation Racers PS3: Bringing Back the Split-Screen.

To quote: There are two multiplayer experiences that we were keen to deliver in ModNation Racers.

First, there was the online race experience (up to 12 players), while the second was the couch racing experience.

It is hard to beat the multiplayer experience on the couch against friends - I think we can all remember this experience from other games we have enjoyed, and we were keen to make sure we delivered the same frantic experience for ModNation Racers.

We wanted to make sure we delivered two-player split-screen. From the start, we wanted our two-player split-screen to work online. [Register or Login to view links] enables you and a friend to go online and play the game together.

This makes for intense competition and a lot of fun! Do you play together, helping each other out or do you take your friend out at every available opportunity? You can play action races and pure races together.

More importantly, two players can play together on any tracks developed by United Front Games or anyone online. It makes for an almost endless...
 

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

50°
254w 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."
 

Blu-ray Single Back-up 'Managed Copy' to be Mandatory in 2010

350°
275w ago - Those who are looking to legally back-up their Blu-ray discs will soon be able to do so, without having to resort to SlySoft AnyDVD of course.

To quote: It was announced today that beginning next year, consumers will be given the ability to make one copy of any Blu-ray disc they buy, a move being forced on studios and content holders by the Advanced Access Content System License Administrator, who went up to the studio owners and said "Come to me, son of Jor-El! Kneel before AACSLA!"

Known as "managed copy," this requirement has been in the works for the Blu-ray format for quite awhile, but was just recently finalized. The order that managed copy be mandatory on Blu-ray discs means that virtually all BDs released after Q1 2010 will offer customers the ability to make a single full-resolution backup copy.

Don't start getting your pirated eBay accounts set up just yet though. Current-gen Blu-ray players don't have the ability to play managed copies, and ones that can aren't expected to hit the market until Q2 2010 at the earliest.

Additionally, content owners will be very much in control of the backup copies, and can elect to charge for the copy made and even offer or sell additional...
