140w ago - Today MultiMAN's deanrr has made available new PS3 EBOOTMod and EBOOTFix Tools, which allow users to decrypt and re-encrypt newer PlayStation 3 executable files for use on older PS3 Firmware versions.
To quote: Here is an updated version of the tools. They now handle properly SPRX files. (thanks to belmondo for the hints!)
There are few important fixes (about path with spaces and wrong byte change which may cause crashes and also fixed PARAM.SFO in RETAIL to be DG type). Don't use previous versions I posted. This package also includes multiMAN 01.16.11 (TEST UPDATE#5) which handles properly SPRX files during SHADOW COPY.
ebootFIX now produces TWO separate folders:
One is [NPDRM] - to be used as PSN-styled game to launch from XMB (to be used with multiMAN's shadow copy)
The other one is [RETAIL] - it will generate the full game structure with all subfolders + all EBOOT.BIN / *.self / *.sprx files.
140w ago - Avalanche Software Senior Producer Jonathan Warner has made available a video today on Cars 2: The Video Game, which now officially supports PS3 3D and 4-player split-screen.
To quote: We're wrapping up production on Cars 2, and now we're excited to announce that Cars 2: The Video Game will be presented in 3D exclusively on the PS3.
We've worked very closely with Pixar to bring a cool Cars 2 game to life, and it's even more exciting to bring all of those great characters to life in a full 3D experience. Pixar has created such vibrant worlds that resonate so well with audiences that it seemed a natural extension to take the game to a 3D setting – just like the upcoming film.
What's more, our engineers were able to design a system that allows us to harness the power of the PS3 to display the game in four-player split screen in full 3D.
It made the PlayStation 3 the perfect choice for developing a 3D game. We're really looking forward to delivering a special racing game, and I hope you will enjoy playing it as much as we do!
The 3D aspect for the PS3 enables you to step into the game world and experience it the same way you will in a 3D-equipped theater. You'll get an extra visceral component to the...
140w ago - Lesta Studio's International Affairs Manager Lucy Khatajaeva has announced today that Time Machine: Rogue Pilot is hitting PSN this Spring with Multiplayer action.
To quote: Our very first PS3 title Time Machine: Rogue Pilot is in the final stages of development and will be available on PSN later this spring (hurray!), which is totally exciting for our studio.
Time Machine: Rogue Pilot combines all my favorite elements from the "match three" and hidden object genre, combined with full HD graphics and a great soundtrack. Your task is to time travel through different eras to fix the past and save he future!
First, some backstory! The Time Machine was built by a genius professor for the good of humanity, but it was stolen by a fellow named Jack, who has an interest in bringing destruction to the world. He jumps from one era to another and creates chaos to the timeline.
While playing for Ilona, a young girl who was brave enough to chase Jack, you'll have to collect special crystals in match-three missions that serve as fuel for your Time Machine, enabling you to jump from one era to another.
You'll need to fix the past by destroying items that don't belong to the current era – these are the hidden object missions – to bring order to the universe and...
