158w ago - Today Producer Francois Potentier has introduced Funky Lab Rat for PS3 alongside a video showcasing the puzzle-platformer that is hitting Playstation Store.
To quote: After a week flooded with big announcements and sequels, time has come for one of the most exciting and original 2D platformers with physics: Funky Lab Rat.
This original and refreshing title has been available exclusively from PlayStation Store since 24 November. Using the PlayStation Move motion controller or a DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller you can freeze time, stop the action (gravity too) and even rewind to re-arrange and place the available items to facilitate your fast escape.
Check out the trailer:
Play Diego, a super-powered Rat willing to escape from an experimental lab. Your mission is to make it through the final lab gate by crossing over pits and overcoming obstacles. 81 levels and 10 worlds await you!
It's not easy though, trust me! This game will keep you busy for hours even if you are the most hardcore of players. Collecting pills on your way out will help you to get rewards, medals and trophies. If you perform perfect runs, you'll win platinum rewards.
158w ago - Previously PS JailBreak users were warned not to update to PS3 Firmware 3.42 as it patches the PS3 JailBreak exploit, and today theruler and others on PSX-Scene (linked above) report that PS3 Firmware 3.42 consoles are now hitting retailers which have removed the exploit currently used for PlayStation 3 JailBreaking.
To quote: Several members of this forum and others have been reporting buying brand new PS3 Systems that come with 3.42FW. Systems above 3.41 cannot be jailbroken.
While not all systems in stores are 3.42FW and people have still reported buying 3.40FW systems, the increased reports of 3.42FW systems can only be a sign of things to come with Sony attempting to combat the jailbreak on all fronts, and signals an incoming scarcity of consoles with 3.41 or below.
If you or someone you know buys a system that comes with 3.42 please post as much information as possible in this thread. (Including box description, barcode, other codes, SKU, etc. Pics plz!)
Just got a ps3 160gb from the zellers moonlight madness and it came with 3.42
