127w ago - A few days ago we reported on Sony's new PS3 / PSN site, and today TheSixthAxis.com (linked above) points out that it may be in preparation for an official PSN Smartphone application incoming.
To quote: What about a PSN smart phone App that will let you log in to your account on the go, queue up downloads, and generally always be connected to your PlayStation profile?
TSA reader bap10 thought he might enquire, asking SCEE:
Do you think we will ever see a mobile phone app for logging into the PSN to send messages and push demos and bought items to the PS3? Or even something along those lines for the PC?
Sony's response? Emmanuel Orssaud replied:
"I've got another post planned for this week which should answer your questions about the app. *wink*"
131w ago - Today DemonHades (and Jack90 at Spanish site Elotrolado.net) have reported a rumor of a possible PS3 kernel exploit discovered in the FIFA Soccer 09 game for PlayStation 3.
Currently there are no plans to publicly disclose the exploit, however, if it does surface there is a good chance it will still be present in PS3 Firmware 3.50 so only time will tell for sure.
To quote DemonHades, roughly translated: "I do not think showing more are demonstrated, but helping others and providing information.
I am not a coder "hopefully" would dawn, I'm ideologue and analyze the details.
What the exploit as I said in my private message that was copied to EOL (without my consent) was a reply to the question suggested by maee, who kindly responded.
As I said the FIFA09 has a kernel exploit not want to publish for several reasons, including neglecting the business model wave dependence on "x" groups, including Math.
Having the information is to have the power to handle situations as you saw when they released the code in the groove ("as if you throw rice to the pigeons go all at once and do not separate from you, but if they see anything they do not strip is piran "), I for personal reasons...
131w ago - Update: As confirmed by many users now (including DJLO who posted the pictures below), along with stopping PSN gamesharing Sony has blocked PlayStation Network access for PS3 Debug (8002A212 Error) and PS3 JailBreak users who now are asked to update their console through a message prompt.
Just over a month ago PS3 JailBreak users had a PSN ban wave scare, and today a new PAN/Europe TOS update may indicate that Sony is finally planning to begin banning JailBroken PS3 consoles on PlayStation Network.
133w ago - Today TheGameHeadz.com (linked above) reports that a Rep revealed Sony's PS3 backwards compatibility plans to them at a recent press event.
While they didn't reveal their informant's name, a few months ago a patent for an adapter to make PS3 backwards compatible was uncovered.
To quote: "It was clear from our conversation that Sony likes the idea of backwards compatibility, but hadn't come to a conclusion until recently, on how to incorporate it.
The decision Sony finally came to is the one already in play, HD remastering.
"Remastering didn't come up until about two years ago. For a developer, remastering in HD took a moderate amount of time and effort to achieve, and with the right title it could be very successful. Once we noticed the benefits of HD remastering, the decision was made to use God of War 1 & 2 as the test for the market, and they delivered.
The God of War Collection had reached almost a million copies sold just after the holiday. Shortly aftter that Activision, EA, UbiSoft, Konami, and SquareEnix were all on board to issue ReMastered Edition of their best Playstation 2 Games."
He went on to say doing backwards compatibility...
