Starhawk Private PS3 Beta Q&A Detailed: Reaching for the Stars

100°
157w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared Q&A details today on the Starhawk private PS3 Beta as part of an interview below.

To quote: At this very moment, a small group of lucky testers are putting the Starhawk Private Beta through its paces. During last week's PlayStation holiday showcase for New York City media, I had a chance to go hands-on with the beta.

But I wanted to learn more about the beta's reception among the diehard Warhawk community, so I chatted with Senior Producer Harvard Bonin to learn some key findings from the beta: the most popular weapons and vehicles, the sneakiest tactics, and what beta players can expect next.

PlayStation.Blog: Obviously, there's a private beta going on right now. What have been some of the key learnings?

Oh, boy. There have been too many to name here, but one of the key learnings has been how closely we need to listen to hardcore Warhawk players. We made some changes to the flight controls that they reacted to negatively. We're now in the process of addressing that, and it's only because of the beta that we realized. Without a beta, we have no way to do that.

We've also seen a lot of strategies we couldn't have anticipated. The Build & Battle configurations are pretty interesting, people placing...
 

Toggle QA PS3 PKG for Rebug Custom Firmware is Released

1350°
158w ago - Following up on their previous updates, this weekend Sony PlayStation 3 hackers Cyberskunk and evilsperm have released a Toggle QA PS3 PKG for Rebug Custom Firmware users.

Download: scmods.com/rebug/pkg/toggle_qa.pkg

To quote: THIS SOFTWARE WRITES TO THE PS3 EEPROM - USE AT YOUR OWN RISK

After having to QA a few PS3 in a row. Then installing a different firmware straight after, it was time to cut out the middleman.

Toggle QA will SET/RESET the QA Flag and Token on any 3.41 or 3.55 firmware that has lv1 mmap and lv2 peek and poke patches (which is most of them).

When you run the app it first detects if the PS3 is 3.41 or 3.55. Next it will check if your firmware has any of the required lv1 patches already and only patch the hypervisor with the ones you need. After it finishes patching Toggle QA will check the status of the QA Flag and SET/RESET it accordingly. Then once the QA SET/RESET is done any lv1 patches made will be removed.

HOW TO USE:

1: Install toggle_qa.pkg
2: Run Toggle QA from XMB
3: PS3 will beep and return to XMB. (If you do not hear a beep it has not worked)

NOTE:...
 

Sony Outlines Wipeout 2048 PS Vita Q&A: Speed Thrills Details

300°
162w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has outlined a Wipeout 2048 PS Vita Q&A today which includes Speed Thrills details below, as follows:

If there's any game series that's synonymous with PlayStation, it's Wipeout. This fast-paced combat racer has appeared on every single PlayStation console, and now it's preparing to make the jump to PS Vita with Wipeout 2048.

We recently interviewed producer Michael Pulst, who gave us a tour of the new control options (front and rear touchscreen as well as motion controls), gameplay refinements, and multiplayer support between PS Vita and PS3. Read on for highlights from our interview.

PlayStation.Blog: What are longtime fans likely to notice first about Wipeout 2048 on PS Vita?

Michael Pulst, Assistant Producer: We've made the tracks a little bit wider. Wipeout has always been known for its intense, hardcore racing; in the past games, you were not only fighting the other players but you're also fighting the track. It was so hardcore that it actually turned some people off. It was a barrier to entry, and the team recognized this. By making the tracks a bit wider, you're able to concentrate more on the race and fighting off the other players.

But because Studio Liverpool has been making Wipeout...
 

Video: SSX PS3 Q&A: Better Shred Than Dead on PlayStation 3

50°
166w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has posted up a Q&A and Better Shred Than Dead video today on SSX for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: Whether it's the socially enabled online mode, the deadly new "Survive It" challenges, or the mammoth mountains modeled after NASA satellite maps, the new SSX is hardly short on ambition.

During a recent hands-on session, I caught up with art director and series veteran Geoff Coates to discuss how this classic PS2 series is handling the jump to PS3 for the first time.

During our chat, I was able to slip in some questions from the PlayStation.Blog community and squeak out some tantalizing hints of the PS3-exclusive Mt. Fuji level.

PlayStation.Blog: What does the PS3's technology bring to SSX? What can you do now that you couldn't do in the PS2 era?

Geoff Coates, Art Director, SSX: I worked on all the previous SSX games, and at the time we had a lot of big ambitions that we couldn't execute due to technological limitations - whether it was console hardware power or software holding us back. We've just caught up now from a technical perspective, so it seems like the best possible time for a new SSX game.
